Woo Ga Chon (우가촌)

Posted by: Wen Ching In: Korean Food

We actually wanted to have steamboat for dinner tonight, but quickly changed our mind for Korean food when we drove past this restaurant. The restaurant was quite packed when we went in.

Shortly after placing our orders, the waiter filled our table with lots of side dishes known as banchan (반찬) in Korean, some of them looked unfamiliar to us. The upper side dish was our apple salad, it was quite sour but definitely appetising! The other dish was cooked with corn, cheese, mayonnaise and ham. It looks ordinary but it tasted really good.

We were in the mood for Korean barbeque today. We ordered a portion of pork kalbi (돼지갈비) which cost RM28. These pork ribs were marinated mainly with soy sauce, garlic, rice wine, sesame oil and sugar. The meat was really tender. The best combination is to wrap the pork with fresh lettuce, garlic and ssamjang (쌈장) which is a mixed paste of fermented hot pepper and soy bean.

We also ordered sliced pork belly (삼겹살) for RM25. The waiter was busy cutting the meat into smaller pieces for serving. We were surrounded with countless banchan, not knowing what to eat first!

For ordering 2 portion of meat for the barbeque, we get this dwenjang jigae (된장찌개) for free. Dwenjang jigae was cooked with fermented soy bean paste, beancurd, mushrooms and other vegetables. It actually tastes quite similar to Japanese miso soup. Right beside the soup was kimchi (김치), we found their kimchi really spicy and good compared to other Korean restaurants.

To contrast the hot food with something cooling, we ordered bibim naengmyeon (비빔냉면) for RM18. The spicy cold noodle was served along with a bowl of broth. No doubt that it was really refreshing.

Finally, they served our desserts – sikhye (식혜) and watermelon. Sikhye is a type of traditional Korean rice drink. We were quite excited to find this drink in Malaysia as this is the first time tasting this sweet drink in local Korean restaurant. We like it very much.

We were so full after dinner. We totally enjoyed it. However, for times when you feel like having dinner with privacy, we would advise you not to have Korean BBQ as it would feel weird having someone standing right next to your table most of the time. There’s another branch of this restaurant in Ampang. Try it out if you have the chance!
