Who does not love Korean food? I can have it like my daily dinner meal too. Recently did an arrangement of birthday dinner with my friend over here through a recommendation from my friend. Jinjin Soora Korean Restaurant located in Plaza Mont Kiara is indeed a hidden gem in this area.
I believe they have been operating for less than 4 months and it is run by Korean couple themselves. Most of the food here are quite homecook style and I am loving it as it is quite similiar to Korea.
menu is quite typical as they have their usual bbq section, and bibinbamp and others.
Starting off the fried rice for the kids. Gyran Saeu Bokkumbap – Shirmp Fried Rice @ RM 25. Fragrant, simple and nice.
Love their banchan, as it was requested to refill a few rounds, especially their kimchi, pumpkin or potato (depending on ingredient of the day)
The version of Kimchi Jiggae is slightly thicker in taste and slightly more sourish end. Like this version.
Japchae – stir fried glass noodle. @ RM 29. Very simple dish that stir fried with their house special sauce that make it good. Find it quite authentic tho.
Dwaeji Galbi @ RM 30 – spareribs. Love the marination of this, as it is indeed season heavily and the taste is pack with fragrant in house seasoning. BBQ just nice as you can op to bbq your self or the staff to assist. We asked for the staff to assist.
This is one of my favourite, it is like Korean version of fried oyster. DongGranddang @ RM 28. A plate filled with fried egg omelette oyster. A must to order and must dip with their house special sauce at the side.
Mandu Jeongol @ RM 78 is one of my favourite pot. Felt that it is slightly over price as it is filled with 5 pieces of Mandu and the rest are all veggies.
Fill with kimchi soup base, the taste is not too heavy yet just nice. Their mandu is big in sizes, like 2 pcs of our sui kow = 1 unit of mandu. Pack with meat and veggie in it. Just as I like it.
Depe Samgyeopsal @ RM 30 – thin cut pork belly slices. Simple marination and it is bbq to perfection.
Haemul Bubok @ RM 28. I find that their pancake is so so only as it is still moist in the inside, if it were to cook slightly longer then it would be just nice. A seafood version of egg omelette. Nothing fantastic.
I have been looking around for this snacks and not many Korean restaurant in KL is offering this. Finally this is one of them and it taste exactly like what I had in Korea. Pack with a slice of ham, mushroom and yellow pepper. Sanbok @ RM 28 is indeed quite expensive for 3 sticks.
Did order their Saeu TwiGim @ RM 16 that comes with about 8-10 pcs of mini fried Gyoza version. Not too bad as the skin is pan fried to crispy. (sorry dont have picture for this)
진진수라 jinjin soora is indeed one of my favourite Korean Restuarant now, with is authenticity of the taste. One of the best authentic Korean Restaurant in Mont Kiara and certainly a recommended place if you are looking for one. Been here couple of time after this dining.
My personal recommendation will be:
- Dwaeji Galbi – Shortribs
- DongGranddang – fried oyster
- Sanbok – egg skewers
