Just when you think you've run out of Dak Gal Bi joints to check out, then comes Choi's Don & Dak! Opened by Mrs Choi who hails from Incheon, South Korea, her restaurant is where you need to go to taste really yummy Dak Gal Bi (Grilled Chicken) and Jumuluck (Grilled Pork). She prepares the marinades, side dishes and meat personally so that everything that comes out from the kitchen is up to her standard. Also, she's all about fresh ingredients and using less oil and preservatives!
It's just a few shop lots away from Snowflake.
The tables and grills are imported from South Korea which in a way, makes the experience more authentic, don't you think?
I had the chance to try the grilled chicken and pork with other food bloggers. This here is the Jumuluck table where Mrs Choi said is with the spicy sauce. Price per person is RM22.50. Add RM2 if you want the spicy sauce.
This is the Dak Gal Bi table which I sat which had the non-spicy sauce. Both pans have the usual ingredients of cabbage, tokpokgi, mushrooms with the marinated meat at the bottom. Price per person is RM19.80.
It's not completed yet!
At this stage, the waiter will add in the extra ingredients which you can order beforehand, here he added the mushrooms (RM8) and sausages (RM8).
At the last stage, usually they'll add in the noodles, Korean udon noodles (RM7) was added to the Dak Gal Bi.
We asked the waiter to shape it into a heart since well, it's good food porn! The chicken pieces was really tender and sweet, it was so flavourful thanks to the marinade! I like how you don't feel very thirsty after eating this since it's not overcooked and the ingredients are all fresh.
Here's the Jumuluck pan, where the same add ons were added but instead of udon noodles, Korean ramyun noodles (RM6) were added instead.
And topped with Mozzarella cheese (RM8)!!!
Cheese is good!!! Also, it wasn't as spicy as I expected. The pork pieces are marinated to perfection just like the chicken! However, I prefer the chicken, somehow it's more sweeter and delicious!!!
She cooked us some Korean Ramyun (RM12) too which I think I had before but I can't remember the brand and flavour. I thought it tasted a bit bland, maybe it's because of the awesome grill meat.
Next, we tried the Korean Jjapaghetti (RM7.80)
. I guess this is instant noodles like the Korean ramyun. However, I have tried instant Jjajang noodles and I am not a big fan of them. I rather have the freshly made Jjangmyun
because the sauce and noodles taste totally different and way nicer than the instant ones.
So, I'm not a fan of this.
Lastly, the waiter cooked us some Fried Rice with Dry Laver aka Seaweed (RM7). Cooked rice, seaweed, kimchi and cabbage are cooked in the empty pan because we basically finished both pans. That's how good it is!
Heat some sesame oil then everything is cooked together. Then, it is flattened so that the bottom is evenly grilled and it's scrapped into a roll and it goes into our tummy!
Most of us had Mocktails as it was recommended by Mrs Choi so they have the virgin Mojito and Pina Colada (Both are RM7.50 per glass). The mojito was refreshing after having grilled food while the pina colada has a strong coconut taste.
I had the Shirley Temple (RM6.50) which was a strawberry soda. I am not a fan of carbonated drinks but I like Shirley Temples!
Thank you Mrs Choi for your kind hospitality! I'm definitely coming back for your awesome Dak Gal Bi! :D
