Paniya Korean Restaurant, Solaris Mont' Kiara, Kuala Lumpur
:: A Korean restaurant in neighborhood selling teppan-style Korean food recommended by husband who is a sundae lover! ::
My husband is a sundae-lover. One Sunday after he visited Paniya with his golf friends after golf-session, he strongly recommended I should try their cheolpan-sundae. What special about it is: normally sundae will be cook by steaming or boiling (in soup). However here, the sundae is cook in teppan-style (pan-fried). Something new for us!
Paniya served 4 banchans and 1 complementary hot soup. What we have for that day are purple cabbage salad, eomuk (braised fish cake), kimchi & muk (acorn jelly).
Complimentary hot soup serve in hot pot.
I like the miyuk-guk (seaweed soup), very refreshing! Same goes to the bean sprouts soup that served on our last visit.
Here, the waiter will first cook the pan-fried sundae at the table near to the kitchen counter before transfer to our table. No hot oil splashing all over & less smelly to our clothes and hair.
Cheolpan Sundae @ RM60
Pan-fried sundae with assorted vegetables - cabbage, carrot, onions, sesame leaf, glass noodle, sticky rice cake and their special marinate sauce. The taste is close to dakgalbi, except the chicken meat is replaced with sundae, the marinate not spicy as it comprise from nutty taste from dwenjang.
You can add extra sari (side dish) in it with extra cost. In our first visit, husband asked to add extra sundae @ RM25. However the waiter forgotten to do so. Come to think about it, I'm grateful that he forgot because the original portion itself is a lot for 2 pax!
How to eat: you can eat it with ssam (veggie wrap) just like how you enjoy samgyeopsal. On the lettuce, add sundae, stir fried veggie from pan, little bit of rice, dip the garlic with ssamjang and wrap all before put into mouth. Delicious!
Simple and cozy interior. The seating is spacious. There's a private corner hidden behind the roller binds which can served more than 10-16 pax in a long table.
Side Dish & Beverages
Ignore their spelling mistake on Beverages. The side dish here is not refer to banchan, it is actually the extra side dish (sari) that you wish to add for your cheolpan menu.
Lunch Set Menu
They have affordable price lunch set as well and we have try their Jjajangmyeon & Tangshuyuk (see photo below).
Jjangmyeon @ RM15 + Tangsuyuk @ RM30
It's hard to find RM15 Jjajangmyeon in my neighborhood nowadays. I like their tangsuyuk (sweet & sour pork) serve with sauce separately - where I can taste the crispy pork strip by dipping some sauce before eat.
Paniya is located on the 1st floor, right above Ravi /same row with Kim's Mart.
