Spicy Seafood Noodles @ Buldojang, Desa Sri Hartamas


Just to be clear, this is not meant to be a proper review for Buldoljang because we only tried two noodles. If you haven’t heard of Buldoljang, it’s basically a Korean-Chinese restaurant that is popular among Korean expatriates in KL.


You won’t find the typical Korean food here eg. Korean fried chicken, bulgogi, BBQ or bibimbap. Instead, expect lots of Koreanized Chinese dishes – braised pork, zha jiang mian (Jjajangmyeon), various stir fries and more.


Another thing to note about Buldojang is that their serving portions are huge. And although the price might seem off-putting at first, for eg. RM45 for fried chicken, the portion is at least double of what you’d get at the normal Chinese restaurants. So keep that in mind and be careful not to over order.


The Spicy Seafood Noodle @ RM25 is the main reason we came here. It got excellent reviews from the Korean diners with many backing its authentic taste. To give you an idea on how large the serving size is, imagine a slightly bigger ramen bowl filled with noodle and covered with loads of seafood. The portion is surely enough to be shared by two ladies, while the average guy may struggle to finish it.
Flavor wise I am confident that you will not be disappointed. The seafood tasted fresh and we especially loved the squid, which was given in thick chunks and cooked perfectly. As for the soup, the easiest way to describe it is a spicier and thicker prawn mee soup. It was delicious and I drank all of it. If I had to nitpick, the clams didn’t do much for me because they had so little flesh.


The Nagasaki Spicy Seafood Noodle @ RM25 can be described as a spicy version (they use cili padi) of Champon. Compared to the Spicy Seafood Noodle, the flavor is slightly more mellow less spicy too. Only recommended if you have a low heat tolerance.
