bookmark_borderDinner At Daorae Korean BBQ, Sri Petaling

With all the hype going around, I bet most of you have heard (or even tried) of this restaurant; whether via blogs or word-of-mouth. It is a well-known Korean BBQ restaurant in Malaysia that has expanded rapidly across Klang Valley (and even in Penang too!); with its latest addition in Sri Petaling.


And honestly, I have no idea they have so many branches! Anyway, here are the photos…



As usual, banchan were served upon ordering. I reckon there were 10 types on that day. The (appetizer) soup was quite alright. A lil sweet yet spicy did tingle my tastebud and kick up my appetite.

Grilled Meat



Unless they overcook it, I guess nothing could go wrong with grilled beef and pork belly. They were good as the waiter cooked it prefectly.


Steamed Egg

Although the pancake was on the cold side, both of them were alright. Nothing to shout about.


Consists of thinly sliced beef, vegetables and glass noodles, Bulgogi was probably the favourite dish of the day. Slight sweetness yet flavourful, this classic dish is best served with rice.


The kimchi was rather a disappointment. Although I ordered a seafood version, the bowl was filled with tofus instead. There were only a pinch-ful handful of seafood in it… and an egg. Furthermore, it wasn’t spicy at all. Not a single bit. And it’s kinda tasteless and oily. I had better ones and this is not one of them.


All in all, it was alright for a first timer like me. The dishes were good except for the kimchi as it failed to make the cut. My (and probably my friends) gripe is their “Minimum 2 servings for grilled / barbeque meat”. I don’t know what’s the reason behind it but I don’t think it’s wise to force customers to order a minimum of 2 servings to enjoy them.


Moreover, they didn’t refill any of our banchan. Maybe we should remind them. I don’t know. But seriously… shouldn’t they be more alert and refill whenever they see any empty plates? Hhmm… Maybe I should just stick to my other usual Korean BBQ restaurants for now…

bookmark_borderBreakfast At Pang Ki Dim Sum, Sri Petaling

As many (or probably health freaks only) said, breakfast is the most important meal of the day. Somehow or some way, it supposedly kick start to your day. Maybe it works the same like how coffee works for coffee addicts. And that’s the reason why I have my breakfast lately.

Pang Ki Dim Sum

IIRC, I wrote about this when I brought Robin to this place on one fine Saturday morning. Anyway, I’m writing again. Hehe. One thing I like about this place is that it isn’t packed (to the brim) on weekdays morning and it offers above average dim sum at reasonable price.

Har Kow

Apart from that, unlike other usual dim sum restaurants, this particular steams the Har Kow upon receiving order from customers. It’s a good thing since I don’t really like mine to be tasteless and the skin falling apart (due to prolong steaming / cooking action).

Siew Mai

Back in the old days, I used to ‘ta pau’ 2 plates of Siew Mai before I go to school. At that time, the owner was operating at Happy Garden. It was (and is still) my favourite dish of all time in dim sum cuisine. With good amount of minced pork meat, a lil bit of lard and prawns, the texture was firm yet tasty.


Apart from all those, they do offer one type of congee / porridge only; Lean Meat & Century Egg Congee. But, having said that, their version is total different from those you normally get from other places. Not only they have pork meat and century egg in it, there are normal hard boiled egg, mini prawns and  dried oysters too. Add them all, and you get a bowl of tasty porridge. I doubt they ever need to put MSG at all.

Char Siew Pau

Besides, to load on carbs, one must not miss out Char Siew Pau. It is one of the must-have dumplings whenever you visit a dim sum joint. Different place offers different taste, and I guess the ones offered by Pang Ki aren’t too shabby at all.

Char Siew Pau Filling

As you can see, there’s slight sauce in the filling itself. The bun was soft too. When you are at it, don’t forget to try their Red Bean Paste Dumpling too.

Bamboo Roll

Fried Pork Dumplings

Other orders consisted of Bamboo Roll and Fried Pork Dumplings. Nothing to shout about but not too bad either. I reckoned there are better ones out there.

Prawn Chee Cheong Fun

Last but not least, I’ll order a Prawn Chee Cheong Fun without fail. Though it is not as good as the ones offered by hotels or bigger restaurants, they are good enough for my tastebuds. The prawns weren’t that big but it’s alright to me. No complaints.

All in all, though they are not one of the best, Pang Ki offer above average yet affordable dim sum. And truthfully, they are better compare to the ones located behind this shop. Don’t be surprised that on weekends, it is swarmed by hordes of hungry dim sum lovers but lucky for me, I’m only there on weekdays morning, before my work starts.
