Food of the Day #5 @ Uncle Jang Korean Restaurant

 Compared to the Korean BBQ Restaurants here in Malaysia. Uncle Jang serves a different dish called Dak Galbi. Dak Galbi is a dish consisting of marinated chicken, chili pepper paste, cabbage, sweet potato, scallions, onions and rice cake that is stir-fried.

My friends have been talking about this place for some time and I finally went to the Puchong branch to try it. They have branches at Mont Kiara, Ampang and Bukit Indah (JB) as well.

 The hot plate is  placed in the middle of the table while the waiter will stir-fry it for you until it's cooked :)
Ramen is included in the dish. However you'll have to order a minimum of 2 portion, either spicy or non spicy. Took the non spicy one since my grandma can't eat spicy. They also provide lettuce for you to wrap it with the dak galbi.

2 portion is just right for 4 person or depending on how much you eat. If you feel it's not enough, you can ask them to add additional rice or ramen. Additional stuff will be charged of course.

Try it if you're looking for something different from the usual Korean BBQ. But beware because of the ventilation, your clothes and hair will smell like Dak Galbi at the end of the day. They don't have an air vent to suck up the fumes.

Another thing I would recommend is the Korean Makgeolli (rice wine). The drink is sweet and has a smooth & milky texture. Compared to Korean Soju, I prefer Makgeolli :)

Uncle Jang Dak Galbi Korean Restaurant is located at:
1-1, Jalan Puteri 1/7, Bandar Puteri,
47100 Puchong.

  1. this is something I never try before!;D wonder how does it taste like..hmm

  2. Does the rice wine have strong alcohol smell as well? Japanese Sake is strong and spicy, I thought Korean wine is almost the same

  3. So when you taking me here and belanja? :)

  4. Rice wine?? feel like trying it out too! :)

  5. you know the red pepper sauce in the bimbibap? taste something like that n very yummy ^^

  6. because this rice wine is fermented so it's not that spicy. It doesn't have strong alcohol smell. Quite mild :)

  7. Yup go try it out when you have the chance. I think most Korean restaurant serve it...

  8. hahaha...belanja no money belanja lo. Maybe next gathering can make it there :)

  9. I heard a lot of compliment about Uncle Jang, I should find a day to try.. what was that again? Dakgalbi ^^
