Mont Kiara ~ Ola! Barbeque Garden

Malaysia is a place of food heaven. You can taste different types of cuisine in Malaysia. Asian, Europe, Mediterranean, Vegetarian and more. 

Mont Kiara is a place where most of the Korean stayed. Most of the staffs from Samsung Electronic, Samsung Telecommunications are staying nearby. It is a place where most of the shops and restaurants are run by Korean. Korean food mart, Korean restaurant, Korean clinic, Korean car wash centre, Korean education centre and more. Even, their night market also run by Korean mostly.

I bet most of us have tried Korean food before. And, most of the food that you all tried must be Korean Barbeque, Bibimbap, 

The interior of the restaurant is decorated like a garden.

A small bowl of soup (garbanzo beans) is served initially.

Banchan (Korean side dishes), meat platters (duck, beef, pork), tofu, salad. Meats are great if you dipped with Ssamjang (Korean spicy soy bean paste sauce).

Banchan is small dishes of food served along with main dish in Korean cuisine. I personally prefer Banchan than Korean main dish. There are several types of Banchan such as Kimchi (fermented vegetables with chili peppers and salt), Namul (steamed, marinated, stir-fried vegetables with sesame oil, salt, vinegar, minced garlic, chopped green onions, dried chili peppers, soy sauce), Bokkeum (stir-fried with sauce), Jorim (dish simmered in seasoned broth), Jjim (steamed dish), Jeon (pan-fried dish) and others (korean style salad, japchae).

There are two types of kimchi is served here: the normal Nabak Kimchi we usually have in Korean restaurant (on top of the Korean Salad), another type of Kimchi, called Kimchi Bokkeum (stir-fried Kimchi) is served as a side dish with the tofu (on the right of Korean Salad). Kimchi Bokkeum is more flavourful compare to Nabak Kimchi.

  Korean salad with garlic and yogurt dressings

Japchae (Sweet potato noodles stir fried with various vegetables). Great taste of sesame oil, Korean style of 蚂蚁上树.

We have ordered two cold noodles and two korean rice bowl as our main dish. One Cold noodle on top is 
Mul Naengmyun (Korean Cold Noodle with vinegary ice-cold broth). Noodle is sweet potato noodle top with several thin slices of radish, cucumbers, boiled egg and some white sesame. This dish is came with two bottles of sauce. One is vinegar, another is wasabi sauce, which allowed you to add into soup. The broth of the soup is great, especially after adding wasabi sauce. 

Kong Gooksu (Cold Garbanzo bean Noodle soup). The broth of soup is same as the soup served initially. Drinking the soup individually is great, but, when you are eating with the noodles, the texture of the noodles becomes very starchy.

  Bibimbap (Korean rice bowl with vegetables)

After eating so much of side dishes (refillable), quota of stomach is actually hit the par. Thank god that the serving portion is small. 

Another kind of experience of tasting Korean cuisine, no smoky and oily Barbeque. But, a green and refreshing food which is light to our tummy.
