It all started off with my Instagram stories as I was looking for a nice Korean BBQ place to try out. Thanks to many of that responded to it and decided to try one of your recommendations in it. Many of you suggested Qing He Gu Korean Restaurant in Uptown Damansara. I am quite surprise not many info about them in Google. I know about this shop and always wanted to try.
By the name itself, it seems pretty confusing to me as I would thought it is a China restaurant. However, this turns out to be hidden gem of Korean BBQ in KL. Operate by a couple from Korea.
Even premium meat that is special packed.
By looking at the menu, I am excited as there are quite number of items that I can order. Will need to bring bigger group to try as they have a few classic dish that I wanted to try.
Free Ice cream for all of us, which is a nice catch . .
One of my favourite Korean rice barley drink @ RM 7. Sweet enough to my liking and quite fragrant.
Their signature sauce is pretty spot on for both the sesame oil with sea salt is a must have ontop of your bbq meat. They are using quality sea salt.
Rarely you get to see Cow Tongue @ RM 40 and it was a must order for me. Cut to paper thin slice and easily grill. If it is too thick cut, it might become too chewy. Perfectly cooked by the staff to medium. Just a thin slice, add onto the veggie with both their sauces is perfect! End with a sip of soju bomb especially Tsing Tao with Soju (is by far the best combination of all)
Pork Belly @ RM 30 which is a piece of meat that I would rarely miss. A nice cut of pork belly and just look at the colour of it. Handling with care and perfectly cooked both side. Meat texture not too dense yet a nice layer of fats in between.
Most of the banchan are pretty good, especially the pumkin honey. I had 3 of it.
Service is pretty good even though they are foreign workers.
Great meat, great banchan and free ice cream (it is not about the ice cream). I would say that this shop had certainly grow into my top 3 recommended Korean bbq in KL. Pretty good and will certainly come back for more. One of the best Korean BBQ in KL or one of the best Korean bbq in PJ.
Good news is that now they have expended to Mont Kiara which is nearer to me. In Retail 163.
