지글 지글 | Zigle Zigle Korean BBQ Restaurant, Riverwalk Village, Kuala Lumpur
A friend of us recently open a Korean Restaurant at Riverwalk Village. According to him this is the first Korean Restaurant open in this neighborhood where he has been living here for almost 17 years.
We were here for a dinner on the restaurant's first opening day to show him our supports and also congratulate him personally.
The Dak-galbi consist of chicken meat topped with marinate sauce, red cabbage and white cabbage slice, sweet potatoes, tteok (rice-cake), spring onion, enoki mushroom, onion slice, red and green chili peppers, and udon.
The Dak-Galbi is cook by the grill pan with cover on a portable gas stove. The covered cooking method not only prevent sauce splashing around the table, it also preserved more sauce after cook and lock the moisture of the Dak-Galbi.
Different from those Teppan Dak-Galbi (Spicy Stir-Fried Chicken) we tried before; Zigle-Zigle Dak-Galbi is more like Sweet and Spicy Chicken Stew version. It is less oily, yet still chewy and savory.
As usual, we like had our Dak-Galbi with "ssam". Side dish like kimchi, onion pickles and cabbage salad are served free. Those 6 sauces on the table are for the Korean BBQ use later.
After finish almost 3/4 of the Dak-galbi, we asked for fried rice with the left over ingredients and sauce. Gosh! we love the fried rice so much! The savory taste that comes from the marinate sauce cooked with chicken and veggie earlier goes very well with white rice!
After Dak-Galbi, we had our second round meal ~ Korean BBQ with Moksal (Pork Neck Meat), cook on a Korean Traditional Caldron lid Barbecue Grill Plate.
Dae-Pae Samgyeopsal 대패 삼겹살
Shop owner strongly recommended this Dae-Pae Samgyeopsal - Thinly Shaved Pork Belly Rolls. If you boring of always having samgyeopsal in chunks (pork belly cuts from thick large strips), this Tiny Shaved Pork Belly Rolls will surprise you of missing quickly in your mouth.
Ordinary Korean BBQ normally served sesame oil with pinch of salt and pepper or ssamjang as dipping sauce or wrapping sauce. Here at Zigle-Zigle, they serve 6 different types of dipping sauce which makes their samgyeopsal taste different from other Korean BBQ.
These are the three sauces we like the most:- Black Pepper Sauce, Garlic Sauce and Sweet Soya Sauce. Especially the Sweet Soya Sauce goes very well with Dae Pae Samgyeopsal. You can also dipped up to two different sauces according to your preference. :)
Well, I did not receive free meals from writing this post, we pay for what we eat. Except this Mul-Naengmyeon is 서비스 "service" - free dish from the shop owner. :)
