Mont Kiara


Where to hunt for authentic Korean food in KL? There is one actually, one of the latest addition of Korean food in Solaris is this Kitchen Goheung. Serving one of a classic pork ribs stew pot dish. It is exactly like what I had in one of the shop in Seongsu Dong, Seoul, Korea.

kitchen goheung (1)

Just look at the sign board already tempted you wanted to try it. I have discover this place for quite a while only early this year start giving it a try and to my surprise, I hvae went back 3 times after that. One of the best pork ribs soup you can get. One of the best Korean food in Solaris.

kitchen goheung (2)

This is a shop being patronize by alot of Koreans and usually I am the only local diner there.

kitchen goheung (3)

Their set lunch is quite a bargain menu wise is not extensive. All the basic and signature are there.

kitchen goheung (4)

I have been in for this signature dish a few times already. Pork Bone Stew (M) – enough to feed for 2-3 pax! You can add ramyeon after that. @ RM 55 There are a few ingredient that makes this a great dish which is from the leaves on the bottom right. That gives a slight bitter fragrant flavour yet push it into the kimchi stew soup with their hint of pepper and spicy powder, then mix it all up. The soup gives you a whole new level of taste. Best to go with Soju BomB!

kitchen goheung (6)

This 2 mixture do give you a hint of spices that it is needed. A soup base that is sweet, sour, spicy and hint of bitter. A perfect pork bone stew with kimchi pork bone soup base! yumz!

Each of the pork bone are being cook for long as the meat just peel off easily with chopstick!

kitchen goheung (10)

As this round I have more people, then we order their signature Kimchi Spam Fried Rice @ RM 25. A very simple dish yet done to perfection. A taste from sourish kimchi with the fragrant of spam, is blended well. Mix it all up with some spoonfull of pork bone soup is just perfect!

kitchen goheung (11)

Another signature dish that must order is this classic dish that I had in Korea too. Pork Bone with Kimchi Stew @ RM 26

kitchen goheung (12)

Long marinated pork bone wrap with kimchi then slow cooked to compress the sourish flavour of kimchi out. A soup base which is slight thick but punch with flavour. Some of you might not used to the strong sourish taste but it is as good classic dish as it is!

kitchen goheung (13)

When I was in Korea, One of the Ajuma taught me how to eat this dish is by pouring in the cup of rice being served then eat it along. Loving it! Makes them one of the best Korean food in Mont Kiara.

kitchen goheung (14)

Currently this shop makes it to my top 3 best Korean food in KL.

25th November,  finally tried their famous Seafood Stew Pot. Just pretty awesome!

One of the most famous pastry shop in Bangsar is this Jaslyn Cakes that now had expended their outlet to Mont Kiara. Located just right opposite Kiara 163 or next to Baskin Robin.

Jaslyn Cakes (1)

Was told by my friends that the place serve pretty good cakes and I am not too sure as this is my first time here.

Overall, the cakes here are pretty good as it is moist, not too strong and dense. All the flavours we order has their own taste. Feels like it is freshly made for the day as my colleague went inside and wanted to make a take away, was told it is sold out.

Jaslyn Cakes (14)

I will definately be back again for a piece of cakes and coffee for my cuppa. Price range of cakes is from RM 8 – RM 20 per piece. Well, definately one of a cafe in KL that I would recommend.

One of the latest cafe in KL is this Kanteen’s Coffee Bar at Mont Kiara. A cafe that replacing the lot that used to be Wendy’s Mont Kiara. However after I google about this place, it seems that they might have another branch call Kanteen at Plaza Damas too. Not too sure is it related.

Kanteen's Coffee Bar (2)

A cafe that is nicely design with its cozy interior. With the coffee counter that looks like the 70’s design that catch most of everyone’s attention.

Planned to hit here for brunch and after read most of the reviews, we decided to leave it and only try coffee and cakes.

Pistachio Butter Cake @ RM 17. Buffer cake spongue is soft and airy. First few bites with the pistachio cream n nuts are nice. After a few more bites find the cream oily (could be too much butter or wrong mixture of the ingredients)

Kanteen's Coffee Bar (12)

Cinnamon Doughnut @ RM 3.50 – dough is too dense.

Kanteen's Coffee Bar (13)

Cafe Latte @ RM 10 – not too bad if you want to get your quick fix of coffee.

Kanteen's Coffee Bar (14)

They have just operate less than 2 months if I am not mistaken. Food wise maybe will come back to try it out few months later.

Indeed will be a great place to chill out for a cuppa with friends. For Coffee, I would prefer this place which is just down the road.

What’s On Tap which is currently one of my favourite coffee place.

Heard about this Hong Kong FeiFan Hotpot Buffet offer quite a good value meal that a hotpot buffet starts from RM 35.90+ for lunch and RM 45.90+ for dinner at Kiara 163 Retail Park, Mont Kiara. By the price point, it certainly do look like a great deal.

feifan hotpot (1)

Came here to check it out as got a free birthday meal from my brother, so instead of heading to our favourite Sukiya, we came here to try it out.

Hong Kong Hotpot sure taste slightly different as they have their own style.

My little guest special appearance.

feifan hotpot (2)

An interior which is quite comfy and slightly luxury. I was seated at the far right in the picture and that spot is quite warm.

feifan hotpot (10)

I wanted mala but my bro’s family dont take spicy so they Ordered Pork Bone Soup and Tomato Soup. Pork bone soup taste is not bad as the longer it cooks, the taste gets better. If you want to something mild sourish then tomato is not too bad.

feifan hotpot (12)

Most of the meat ingredients and dumplings are freshly made, and it is not too bad too. Including some fish noodle that is freshly made.

feifan hotpot (13)

feifan hotpot (14)

Overall, for the pricing wise, I totally have no complain as for lunch and a buffet per person is that kind of price. Certainly do not mind to come back again to check out their Malat soup base.

For similiar price point, I would still prefer Japanese style as Sukiya or Mikoshi at Uptown Damansara

If for Hong Kong Steamboat catagory, I would recommended this place.

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. More like a Korean style homecook food.

Jinjin Soora (1)

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.

Jinjin Soora (3)

menu is quite typical as they have their usual bbq section, and bibinbamp and others.

Jinjin Soora (4)

Jinjin Soora (5)

Jinjin Soora (8)

Jinjin Soora (9)

Starting off the fried rice for the kids. Gyran Saeu Bokkumbap – Shirmp Fried Rice @ RM 25. Fragrant, simple and nice.

Jinjin Soora (10)

Love their banchan, as it was requested to refill a few rounds, especially their kimchi, pumpkin or potato (depending on ingredient of the day)

Jinjin Soora (11)

The version of Kimchi Jiggae is slightly thicker in taste and slightly more sourish end. Like this version.

Jinjin Soora (12)

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.

Jinjin Soora (13)

Jinjin Soora (14)

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.

Jinjin Soora (15)

Jinjin Soora (16)

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.

Jinjin Soora (17)

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.

Jinjin Soora (18)


Jinjin Soora (19)

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.

Jinjin Soora (25)

Jinjin Soora (20)

Depe Samgyeopsal @ RM 30 – thin cut pork belly slices. Simple marination and it is bbq to perfection.


Jinjin Soora (24)

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.

Jinjin Soora (26)

Jinjin Soora (21)

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)

Jinjin Soora (27)

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:

  1. Dwaeji Galbi – Shortribs
  2. DongGranddang – fried oyster
  3. Sanbok – egg skewers

Every day I pass by this road and saw this place Kopenhagen Coffee in Mont Kiara operating from first day till now. It is also quite a well known hidden cafe in this neighborhood. I know it is quite a hit place for cafe hoppers at the moment and only decided to visit it over last weekend.

Kopenhagen Coffee (3)

Little did I know that Kopenhagen coffee is actually inspired by the cafes in Denmark. As the owner Peter is Danish himself, wanted to introduce the public to the cafes and food in Denmark.

Kopenhagen Coffee (1)

A cafe with minimalism decor, white and cement flooring, high window panels that allows alot of natural light to hit in, will be indeed an ideal place for nice photoshoot.

Kopenhagen Coffee (2)

Kopenhagen Coffee (5)

Ordering will be at the counter and their cakes seems good too. will be back next round to try it out.

Han-drip is available too. Do ask from the barista as they will introduce you their special bean.

Kopenhagen Coffee (9)

A cozy corner that many people is aiming for.

Kopenhagen Coffee (10)

Kopenhagen Coffee (11)

Kopenhagen Coffee (12)

Kopenhagen Coffee (13)

My usual order will be Cafe Latte @ RM 12. Love the flavour profile of this as do have minimal hint of floral, nice balance of coffee taste which is not too strong nor too acidic. Strong coffee drinker, you might not like this as it will be too mild for your palate.

Kopenhagen Coffee (15)

Try 2 of their item as both Item that I wanted to order is sold out and it is only 1pm when I reach.

Kopenhagen Coffee (14)

Kopenhagen Chick @ RM 28 – a danish classic with poach chicken breast, mushroom, asparagus, and taragon mix secret sauce. This will be my first most expensive sandwich on my order. Chicken is soft and not too bad, yet the secret sauce is quite unique that you will have hint of tumeric and indian spices or curry powder. Personally thing that, it is on the high side for such sandwich.

Kopenhagen Coffee (16)

Their bagel with cream cheese @ RM 12 is not too bad.  Nicely toasted on the outside to make it slight crips, and the texture is slightly chewy to my liking. Wish to have slightly more cream cheese then would be perfect.

Kopenhagen Coffee (20)

Kopenhagen Coffee (21)

Butter cake is nice as it is not too dense .

I do not mind to come back for their coffee as I quite like it. Maybe another round of their healthy Danish type of food.
