Restaurant Shin (레스토랑신)

Posted by: Wen Ching In: Korean Food

This is a post dated back to June 2008. We were shopping around in Bukit Bintang area. When dinner time, we decided to visit the top floor of Sungei Wang since there are quite a lot of eateries located on that floor.

Since we were craving for Korean food, we decided to visit the only restaurant which serves Korean cuisine. The restaurant is located on the sixth floor, where Green Box Karaoke, Gasoline and Sushi Station are located in.

The restaurant was small but clean and it has an open concept kitchen.

It is decorated with many posters with Korean artists and countless colourful notes written by the customers.

We were served with a bowl of soup and three types of side dishes shortly after placing our orders.

I ordered a cheese kimbab (치즈김밥) without hesitation as this is one of my favourite food in Korean cuisine. Priced at RM10.50, this Korean style sushi roll with cheese, egg, pickled radish, spinach and carrot sprinkled with sesame seeds tasted simple, healthy and crunchy. It would have been perfect had they added more cheese to it.

We ordered a kimchi jigage (김치찌개) as we usually will when we dine in Korean restaurant. Priced at RM13.90, the kimchi stew with pork tasted quite good and appetising, spicy and slightly sour.

Overall, the food was quite good in this restaurant. The staffs were nice and friendly too. But if you’re craving for good Korean food, it is still advisable that you explore Korean restaurants in Desa Sri Hartamas area since there are more choices and more side dishes served in those restaurants.

thenomadGourmand, seems like Ko-Hyang is highly recommended by many food bloggers. Will definitely try it out when we're back in KL. Thanks for the recommendation. Yeah, totally understand what you mean. If the cuisine is well-prepared, it'll be tasty in any way. :)

backStreetGluttons, haha, the sixth floor of Sungei Wang seems a little hidden to most people. And yeah, it was a delightful dinner that we had in Shin.

Selba, it's nice to try something new once in a while. Do check the cheese kimbab out if you have the chance. Haha, guess we can assume that they have many customers from the notes.

ai wei, hmm, not too sure about it but I guess it's a fusion of Korean and Western food. Will definitely accompany you anywhere you want to! Korean food are good for sharing, especially when there are many side dishes.

J2Kfm, haha, the sixth floor is quite hard to discover. Quite a lot of hidden treasures there. Yeah, this place was fine and decent.

mimid3vils, yeah, they look quite similar. In fact, we can't really tell which is which before tasting them.

Sean, so far we've only been to this Korean restaurant and Green Box in this floor. They're quite okay to us. No worries! :)

sock peng, 对,挺特别的,还可以用来表达自己的心意。

嘉CacinG進, wow, you're been there 4-5 years ago? Didn't know this restaurant has been there for so long. Haha, after so many years, the notes definitely increased.

佐瑟琳,呵呵,想吃的就尽管去吃吧。相信槟城一定也有很多很好的韩国餐厅!

cariso, I typed the Korean words by using Windows language input. The method is the same as using Chinese words input. Contact me if you have more queries. :)

Jimmy, oh, didn't know you worked there before. Yeah, we remember that service was good. And Korean fried rice too? Guess we'll try that out next time. Thanks for the information! Hope to visit their new restaurant too! ^^
