BBQ-K Korean Barbecue Buffet RM45 @ Solaris Mont Kiara

Good food with friendly service coupled with eat all you can at a reasonable price make BBQ-K a must visit for those who love Korean barbecue. For RM45 you are free to stuff yourself silly with chicken, beef, pork, seafood and many other dishes – mainly of Korean and Japanese variation. For the same amount money, you usually get only one or two plates of meat at the regular Korean restaurant. So it’s pretty much a steal.

Korean BBQ

Now one thing before you hop on your car and drive to Solaris Mont Kiara, please make sure you have made a reservation especially if its the weekend. BBQ-K gets filled up quickly and walk-in customers could be seen lining outside for a spot to eat during peak hours.

Braised Fish Head & Fried La La @ New De Place, Kepong

Clam dishes are one of our personal favourites and although they are commonly available at any Chinese restaurant, the ones that are worth recommending are pretty hard to come by. Recently, we stumbled upon this small eatery along Kepong‘s Glutton Street that serves up delicious fried la la and braised fish head. New De Place sounds a bit weird but it is the name of the place.

Braised-Fish-Head

Grouper head is used for their special fish head and it costs RM14 for a small portion – just nice for two people. Since taucu is the main seasoning for this dish it has a strong umami flavor and tastes simply appetizing.

Fried-La-La

The clams we had were fresh and properly purged so they did not have the gritty stuff in them. You’d think that this should be a standard procedure when it comes to cooking clams, but there are chefs who cut corners. They were not overcooked as well, the flesh was still plump and juicy with a clean yet savory taste.

Chou Shun Kan Japanese BBQ Restaurant @ Laman Rimbunan, Kepong

Chou Shun Kan is a Yakiniku (Japanese BBQ) restaurant located at Laman Rimbunan Kepong. We went in without great expectations but were pleasantly surprised by their quality of food especially the various fresh offerings of meat for grilling purpose. The menu, as expected, is priced more or less in the mid-range.

Japanese-Charcoal-BBQ

Here’s what you will get for the RM88+ set L (2-pax serving including rice, soup, kimchi and vege) which has a good mix of seafood, beef and pork. Most of the meats are pre-marinated with their in-house sauce and thinly sliced into bite sized portions.

Beef-Slices

Jyo Karubi (Special boneless beef short rib) – just look at the beautiful marbling and you’d know your palate is in for a heavenly treat.

Babi Guling Pak Dobiel @ Nusa Dua, Bali

Most people who had been to Bali will tell you that Babi Guling (roasted suckling pig over coconut husk fire) is a must try local delicacy. Unless your diet is restricted by health, religion or personal beliefs, there is simply no excuse to miss eating Babi Guling in Bali. Else, the your trip is in vain. It’s almost like going visiting Penang and not eating Char Koay Teow!
But of course, as always there are also non-believers who swear off this dish because they felt it fell way off their expectations. Well, I can only say that they had been eating at the wrong places.

Pak-Dobiel-Babi-Guling

Anyway, if you Google around you will see that Ibu Oka at Ubud is most famous thanks to Anthony Bourdain’s endorsement. To be honest I would have eaten at Ibu Oka as well if I did not ask for a second opinion on the social network. A friend who had been to Bali before responded and directed me to Pak Dobiel at Nusa Dua instead.
But just so you know, even though I felt Pak Dobiel’s Babi Guling is tasty enough to be recommended, my Balinese tour guide in his on words commented that it was “parah sekali” if compared to the best one he had. So, don’t take my recommendation as a foreigner too seriously, as it is only good as a last-ditch resort.
