A Fiery Date with Uncle Jang

Dak-Galbi is so famous recently due to many people blogged about them. The usual food hunter me salivated over the pictures and words and thinking when am I going to try this Korean delicacy. As usual, I dragged my sister along with me. We have been talking about going for a visit for almost few months, until today we finally have a chance to go together.

We arrived there at 12 noon sharp which is the opening time and there were already 2 tables occupied. The temperature inside the restaurant was a bit too warm but I can't put the blame on them, as the weather itself is scorching hot, plus they just opened their shop.

 We ordered Hot Spicy (RM22) and Normal (RM19) portion each. Minimum order is 2 portions and you can mix them together as you like. Dak-Galbi consists of fresh chicken chop, cabbage, sweet potatoe and rice cakes. Not forgetting to order the fried rice sari (RM6) which is a popular sari (side dish) ordered by other patrons.

The waiter then served us plain icy cold water, kimchi, pickled onions, bean paste and garlic slices.

Some lettuce as well to enjoy together with Dak-Galbi. It is refillable and we asked for a second portion

Pretty large portion for two. Looking at the red hot pepper paste mixed together with the chicken cubes makes me salivate even further!
 The staff will cook it for you. All you have to do is just sit back and relax, maybe taking some good pictures of it XD Beware that the smell could be too strong due to its spiciness and make you sneeze.

When frying, another small portion of chilli paste is added. I suppose the Dak-Galbi may lack of sauce after frying for a long time. The staff will inform you whether it is ready to eat or not. As shown in the picture, we were allowed to dig in =D At this time, the chilli paste portion was just right. Not too try nor too wet.

I love how they mix the spicy chilli paste as it is fragrant and flavourful. Mixed with all other ingredients makes a perfect match. However, it is kinda oily after observing the oil accumulated underneath the ingredients and coated with the cabbage slices. It was a bit too spicy for us so we might want request for less spicy during the next visit. Overall, taste was fantastic, enjoyable and syok!

Succulent and QQ rice cake

Don't forget to sip some icy cold water provided to soothe your spicy tongue! ;)

After eating about 2/3 of the Dak-Galbi, the staff added the sari for us. The cooked rice came with raw shredded lettuce and some kimchi slices underneath if I'm not mistaken. 

 Remaining Dak-Galbi is set aside. The unwanted sauce is scrapped off because it is burnt.

Ta-da! Mix, mix and mix producing another red hot looking batch of food! Again, the rice coated with chilli paste was kinda too spicy and oily for us. But it was yummy! Forget about the oil and enjoy the taste. Love hate relationship, I still managed to eat a quarter of the rice.

You can add other sari as well like mushroom, udon, ramen, sweet potatoe and rice cake. Would love to try udon for the next visit =D

Slices of watermelon to end our meal

Uncle Jang also serves other Korean dishes as seen from the order bill above. The Samgye-tang came with an affordable price tag of RM19. Wish to bring my mum here to try it next round! =D
