I didnt know there is one new Korean shop that operate in the area of Solaris, Mont Kiara. It was a random hit of a Korea dining as I was actually craving for one. Walked into this shop as it seems new to me. Only then found out from the waiter that Sukdduck Topokki since 1974 (which I cant find details about them in Korea or maybe I am noob in finding details) had been operating for 8 months in the area.
Especially an outlet that serve specialty of Topokki. I am not a big fan of it as I am quite picky over this classic traditional rice cake from Korea. I used to hate it and after travel to Korea couple of times, I started to enjoy this dish more as I found better ones along the way.
In Malaysia, it is quite hard to find a nice shop that serve this and to me, it boils down to 2 main important element for me.
1. The rice cake must be soft, slightly chewy that you can have some effect of like pulled cheese
2. The gravy is the most important of all as Rice cake is only for the texture not the taste. It must be slightly thick like our curry chicken yet not like a paste. Gravy to be smooth, spicy and mild sourish.
Sukdduck Topokki hits both of the element perfectly. A classic dish that is done to perfection. Rice cake imported from Korea hence this is one of the best I have eaten in KL. Soft, slight chewy and the most important serve in a long stripe.
Sauce is spot on. very fragrant, smooth and addictive. With Ramyeon in there is like a icing on the top to finish it perfectly. The first few spoon, you do not feel the heat. After a while, you started to sweat yet you will keep digging in.
I wish they had the fried rice after it. Little did I know they do serve like how the classic Korean dish ends it. I am going to come back again for this.
Finally, a shop that sells quite classic authentic Topokki. Love it. If you have not been to Korea yet want to enjoy authentic Korean street food in KL, highly recommending this. Could this be the best Topokki in KL? Saw the boss walking in as this shop is operate by a young Korean Chap.
Gonna come back for more.
