Gangnam 88, Solaris Mont' Kiara, Kuala Lumpur

:: Try out another new Korean Restaurant in the neighbourhood - a K-pop cafe / restaurant cater for K-pop fan ::

Gangnam 88 has been open for business quite a while and today finally we give a try since we don't want to repeat dine-in at the same Korean restaurants in Solaris Mont' Kiara. We noticed the restaurant sometime ago as they have a very big LED TV playing latest K-pop music video continuously which can be see from the main road.

Gangnam 88 located at the first floor right above Coffee Bean. The interior is give us an impression that it is very young and funky restaurant which cater for k-pop fans - K-pop idols posters on the wall, CDs and merchandise items displays at window corner (not sure if it is for sale). This explained why inside the restaurant only youngsters are spotted; unlike typical Korean restaurants where usually family members are having their meals or middle age Korean ajeossi are drinking and gathering. 

Jjolmyeon @ RM25.00
Husband had order Jjolmyeon as dinner. Jjolmyeon is Korean noodles that have a very chewy texture - made from wheat flour and starch. It usually served cold like bibim-guksu, with various chopped vegetables (lettuce, carrot, cucumber, cabbage, bean sprout), a hard boiled egg and red spicy sauce. The spicy sauce is kind of taste like mixture of gochujang (chili pepper paste), vinegar, sugar, and minced garlic.

6 simple banchan are served as well - kimchi, jjangjorim (soya braised pork slices with hard-boiled egg), stir-fried bean-curd, pan-fried egg tofu, steam pumpkin with marinated sauce and jeon (korean pancake).

Dweji-suyuk 돼지수육 @ RM49.00
While I order the Dweji-suyuk - Korean boiled pork for sharing. The su-yuk comes with white rice, lettuce, marinated green onions slices, ssamjang, garlic slice, chopped chillies, and salted shrimp paste - for ssam (wraps). Their su-yuk price consider quite reasonable compare to other Korean Restaurant.

Overall we have a good time and the food was okay. Kind of similar with those Korean street food cafes that we patron but their environment is more lively and food has slightly better quality.
