Black Sand Beach

Yet another beach in Langkawi Island, this particular one has a distinguished character by its own.

Due to combination of certain minerals, the sand on this beach is black in colour. From the images I saw over the internet, it used to be darker / denser than what I saw during my trip. Perhaps, maybe the base of the sand is indeed black colour and probably due to the low tide, the black sand was partially covered by normal ones.

Truth to be told, I spent about 5 minutes only walking around as there are not many things to see. On the left is the cement factory while on the right is some fishing village, I think. Straight ahead is nothing but sea…

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…
