.: Restaurant Dae Jang Geum @ Section 14 :.

Note : Updated on 31 March 2011 (read here on why we decided to boycott this place!)

So I have tried a couple of Korean restaurants before in PJ and KL, but I have to say that this place is by far the best I have tasted.

Restaurant Dae Jang Geum (if this name rings a bell for you drama junkies out there - its also the name of the show "Jewel In The Palace").

It is located in Section 14, Petaling Jaya (within proximity of the infamous Jaya Supermarket, at a corner lot above Kemaman Kopitiam).

As it is a BBQ place, the grilled meat (of pork, beef, chicken and seafood) is absolutely must! And to top it all, the grilling is done by the waiter/waitress, so one could enjoy the starters and not have to check and flip the meat as it grills on the grill pan. The grilled meat is grilled to perfection. Mmmm......(sorry, no pictures as I was too busy eating! Hehe!).

They have a wide variety unlimited complimentary starters, such as kimchi (a must try - but, like durian, it's more of an acquired taste for some. As for me, I immediately loved it), potato salad, mini Korean pancakes, vegetables cooked in kimchi, tofu, crispy fried anchovies, etc. The choices varies (I notice in my couple of patronage to the place) but the variety is definately aplenty. As it is unlimited, do not feel shy or hesitate to request for second helping, third helping or even forth helping *paiseh* of the starters you enjoy most! :)

The of course, also complimentary, but limited to one serving, steamed eggs (which taste like any ordinary steam eggs, but really nice nonetheless).

If you come in a really big (and HUNGRY) crowd, I would definately recommend to order the Korean pancake (which comes in a special dipping sauce) and kimchi soup, aside from the variety of meats that you can choose to grill.

And then of course a big hearty meal is never completed without dessert. For dessert, they serve complimentary fruits; usually watermelon and a special Korean rice dessert drink (Shikye), which I absolutely love! It's made of basically boiled barley and rice, and taste absolutely refreshing when served chill! Of course we couldn't help but have a second round of this thirst-quenching dessert. Again, it's complimentary AND unlimited! :)





So decided to try some Korean food? Then go on over to this place! :)

Not to worry, the price range is quite reasonable too (considering you can stuff yourself full to the brim). For a party of 8 people, the total bill came up to RM 200++ (can't remember the exact amount), so approximately RM25++ per person.

P/S : If you wanna save more, don't order rice, as a bowl cost up to RM5.
