Uncle Jang Korean Restaurant
Posted by: Wen Ching In: Korean Food
A few months ago, we paid a visit to Uncle Jang Korean Restaurant in Solaris Mont Kiara with Brought up 2 Share, My Story, Motormouth from Ipoh and Ipoh Mali Talak Sombong as we wanted something spicy and they recommended it for some spicy Korean delights.
All tables come with a hot plate and that is because the main item to order in Uncle Jang is Dak-Galbi. It is a dish generally made by stir-frying marinated diced chicken in a gochujang (chilli pepper paste) sauce with sliced cabbage, sweet potato, scallions, onions and rice cakes on the hot plate.
That day, we ordered the Spicy Dak-Galbi for RM22 per person. Shortly after ordering, the ingredients for the dish were brought to our table and fried on the hot plate in front of us. The waiter will be the one doing the frying and stirring, so just sit back and relax.
We requested for the addition of cheese to our Dak-Galbi for an extra RM8. It was sprinkled on top towards the end of the whole process and then stirred. Throughout the frying process, we could smell the excellent aroma of the Dak-Galbi and couldn’t wait for it to be ready to be eaten!
The end result was very flavourful. The chilli paste coated the ingredients well and gave it all a nice spicy kick. A good balance is achieved when the spicy ingredients are wrapped up in the cooling lettuce leaves and eaten. We enjoyed the Dak-Galbi very much!
A recommended option towards the end of meal (when only about a quarter to a third of the Dak-Galbi is left) is to order rice to be fried on the hot plate. We did so at an extra charge of RM6. Extra vegetables and seaweed will be fried along with the rice.
When done towards the end of the meal, the rice was able to absorb all the flavourful juices from the chicken that remained on the hot plate. We found that the rice absorbed the spice from the chilli paste and all the residual flavour left on the hot plate. It was the perfect way to round off an excellent meal!
We really enjoyed the food at Uncle Jang as it was able to offer us a good level of spiciness which still tasted very good. Definitely one worth checking out!
