Then they do have another singature is their fresh oyster with butter. It is to have a quick grill ontop of the pic.  Another of my personal favourite is their freshly made Tamago. Lovely layers with some burnt torch mayonise.

Other fresh seafood you are looking at is fresh squid, prawns which is quite good. If you grill yourself make sure do not over cook such a nice ingredient.

Hanam Korean BBQ is one of the latest Korean BBQ that just open its door to public. It is located at United Point, KL. I have been aiming them since last year MCO as the hoarding board seems to be there for ages till recently I saw a Korean Tiktoker went there to dine in.

Quickly swing by and found out that they area actually a famous chain from Korea.

Hanam BBQ Menu

Hanam BBQ menu is very straight forward which is only a few pages. Mostltly focus on ala cart bbq meat and some sets.

Hanam BBQ (1)

This is their special side dish. Love their Kimchi as marinated well and have its own taste and texture. Serve with 4 different condiments and their signature is the leave (suddenly forgot what is the name).

Quite interesting as it seems it is like a non stick Stone grill bbq pit .

Hanam BBQ (1)

best korean bbqLook at the pork belly. Nice cut and even balance of fats. .

  1. 1 x pork belly
  2. 1 x stew

There is some one there to assist on the grill meat to ensure you get the right texture and cook meat.

Hanam BBQ (7)

Hanam Korena BBQ Malaysia

This is one of their signature eating style. Korean BBQ meat wrap with their special seasoned leave. It is so good that taste abit of sourish yet the bbq taste is just perfect. A great combination with Soju at the side. Best!

Steam egg have to eat fast while the texture is soft and not over cook. Another trick is too scoop up fast.

Hanam BBQ (4)

Their Kimchi Stew is one of the best I have come across. Thick in soup base, yet aromatic, hint of sourish and spicy end. Kimchi veggie is soft and pork belly in it is whoolaa laaa.

Hanam BBQ

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.

Qing he Gu (19)

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.

Qing he Gu (18)

Even premium meat that is special packed.

Qing he Gu (2)

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.

Qing he Gu (17)

Qing he Gu (15)

Free Ice cream for all of us, which is a nice catch . .

Qing he Gu (14)

One of my favourite Korean rice barley drink @ RM 7. Sweet enough to my liking and quite fragrant.

Qing he Gu (13)

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.

Qing he Gu (11)

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)

Qing he Gu (10)

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.

Qing he Gu (9)

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.

It seems that Korean Bbq shop is popping every where now. One of the latest arrival from Korea to Malaysia is this new brand – Apple Samgyupsal Korean BBQ that is currently operating their first shop at Taman Desa. A shop that is operating away from the busy district of Taman Desa that sits nearer to Old Klang Road.

Apple Samgyupsal (2)

As you can see in their logo, Apple + Pork. Most of the item in here are infuse with apple base that is making the food quite interesting.

Apple Samgyupsal (3)

There are also a huge board on the wall teaching you on the method of cooking and eating.

Apple Samgyupsal (4)

As you are seated down you are then treated with the usual banchan.

Apple Samgyupsal (5)

Set price are reasonable and would recommend to hit on their BBQ Sharing Set that fits for 3-4 pax @ RM 168. As for this set, you get unlimited packet of Ramyum upon request.

Apple Samgyupsal (6)

Every one will have apple slices on the table and you are curious what are you going to do with it?

Apple Samgyupsal (7)

This is Apple Platter @ RM 88. 


Apple Samgyupsal (8)

Pork Cuts in here are marinated in apple for 24 hours and then smoked with apple smoke chips before putting onto the grill.


Apple Samgyupsal (9)

As for the sides, they serve you with their signature onion dressing with apple with apple infuse soy base, and their thick honey apple. With the apple slices, the purpose of this is to:

  1. Upon your Pork meat is done, you put the pork meat onto one apple slices (instead of the usual with vegetable)
  2. Then add on with onion apple soy on top, follow by the honey apple sauce.
  3. Then you put everything into your mouth to get the burst of fragrant bbq apple and sweetness of it

Remark: do not put too much as the flavour of sweetness might be overpowering the juicy pork.

Apple Samgyupsal (10)


Just like this. You will get a nice juicy texture and crisp from apple.

Apple Samgyupsal (11)

Cooking with pork belly slices as the meat might be too fatty for me. Samgyupsal – Spicy @ RM

Apple Samgyupsal (12)

Apple Samgyupsal (13)

Apple Samgyupsal (14)

L.A Galbi @ RM 40 which is marinated in their special sauce and it is good.

Apple Samgyupsal (15)

Wang Galbi @ RM 32

Apple Samgyupsal (16)

This is the unlimited ramyum refill. Loving it.

Apple Samgyupsal (17)

Apple Samgyupsal (18)



It will only be perfect with some alcohol along. Their Apple Magoli is something you can try it out.


This place is not your typical Korean BBQ place as the the meat here is marinated with apple base and there are also classic item that you can choose. Their Jjajang Bbap is pretty good too. Worth to give this place a try.

Korean restaurant is sprouting like wild mushroom in Solaris KL, that have made them the new Korean Village at Solaris Mont Kiara. If you love any KOrean food, this is the place to be. Gogi King Korean BBQ is one of a restaurant that introduce the current hype in Korea that a bbq plate offers you a side with egg and cheese to dip on.

[update: 15th April 2018 : this outlet no longer in operation]

My pit of Korean bbq will not miss Pork Belly, Pork Spare ribs and their octopus.

This is what you will be serve, on their new bbq plate, where they have included a mini line of cheese and egg.

Order a add on with Sizzling plate corn Cheese. Feels like a Indonesian street snacks as theirs add on with chili powder. NOthing to shout about as it has milk mix with cheese on a melted hot plate with corn.

Goji King (12)

Every piece of meat is ready, I dip along with cheese at the side. I have even added some cheese into the egg and dip along. Great Stuff.

Goji King (13)

Goji King (14)

Goji King (15)

Added more Cheese at RM 8 per bowl.

Goji King (16)

I was told that it taste much better at Korea, however I think this is good enough for me as I have never tried the one in Korea like many of you out there. Meat marination is decent as we now have another new Korean BBQ franchise chain that have just landed that offers similiar concept is Shimapo. Will try that out soon.

Empire Damansara were once a big hit with their fancy decor umbrella and now its replace with colourful strings. Indeed its a nice place if all cafe or fashion retail comes to live. However, came by this place numerous times and always wanted to try San Nae Deul for their Eeat All you can Korean BBQ which for lunch is around RM 39++ and dinner at RM 45++ which I think its a good bargain.

Average meal for one Korean BBQ meals cost me around RM 30-RM 80 depending on what kind of meat and other items we ordered.

Upon walking into the outlet, do prepare to smell like a bbq pit after when you are done.

san nae deul (2)

quite a lovely decor they have with low red brick wall as separation and mezzanine level for more seats as we prefer to be seated at the ground level.

After the whole session, we realise that we were overdoze of food. Oh well, I think BBQ Buffet lunch for RM 39++ I am not going to complain much for a Korean range. If you ask me will I be back, why not. Quite a decent normal Korean food if you are thinking for a eat all you can version.
