Uncle Jang Korean Restaurant @ Ampang


Category : Ampang, Korean Food

Remember I told you guys I had a fiery dinner before the “monopoly mission” in Nabe Bakery?!


Thanks to Chris who discovered this restaurant from Uncle Jang‘s Facebook page. Together with kampungboycitygal, we were brought for an interesting but fiery dinner. haha… 

Uncle Jang serves Dak Galbi (닭갈비); which is originated from Chun Cheon, Gangwon province. It is a popular south Korea dish that made by stir-frying the marinated diced chicken in Korean chilli paste (gochujang) based sauce, sliced cabbage, sweet potatoes, scallions, onions and tteok (rice cake) on a hot plate. In Korea, their Dak Galbi also includes cheese and ham. 

Besides Dak Galbi, Uncle Jang also serves Samgyetang (ginseng chicken soup), Dakgyetang (kimchi chicken soup with rice) and Pork cutlet too.  


We were there very early, that was why there was no sight of people. However, during the dinner time, the restaurant was crowded and almost 80% were the Koreans. One can choose to sit on the floor or chair and you will be served promptly. 


Simple bilingual menu on the wall.


Complimentary condiments to go with the Dak Galbi – lettuce leaves, kimchi and pickled onions. 



We had the Dak Galbi in spicy (RM 22 per portion) and non spicy (Rm 19 per portion), Tteok (voucher from fb page) and ramen (RM 6). 


The waiter will help you to cook you dak galbi, and once it is ready, he will inform you. So, worry not about the overcooked or undercooked food. 


Before digging in, remember to put on the huge napkin. Like what they did :)


You can also wrap the dak galbi with lettuce leaves + kimchi + pickled onions for extra kicks


When there was left about quarter of the stir-fried food, we asked for rice (comes with seaweed and greens) at RM 6 to stir fry again with the left over dak galbi to create deeeeeeeelicious fried rice. Of course, the waiter will cook it for you. 


Deeeeeelicious fried rice.

The portion for dak galbi was quite huge. 2 servings was more than enough for 4 girls (with additional of ramen and rice). As we had 1:1 servings (spicy: non spicy), it was extremely fiery hot for us. I would suggest taking up 1:2 (spicy: non spicy) for not crying out throughout the meal like us


Thanks to this cold soup in curbing the spiciness!
