Like Mom is a cute Korean café, run by a pair of friendly Korean couple; offering gourmet coffee, homemade bread and pastries. The décor inside the café is simple but homey, with beautiful decorative tea cups all over the café (I almost wanted to spend on the tea cups). The ingredients they used in the cooking and baking are natural and free from preservatives. Freshly roasted coffee beans are imported from Korea on weekly basis. I would say, they cook the meals with sincere hearts. Contunue Reading
Okay, I am so out, really outdated type. My friends asked if I know about the Gangnam Style which was really a hit lately?!
My answer: I have no idea at all! *lost in touch with connection for days resulted this*
Under the influences of K-pop culture, Namoo on the park is nowadays hot topic too, I guess?! Contunue Reading
Korean food is not just about kimchi, bibimbap, tteokbokki, and Korean barbeque. There are actually more than those – such as Dak Galbi and Samgyetang, these are also the popular dishes among the Koreans.
Samgyetang or literally translates as “ginseng chicken soup” is one of the specialties in Hong Park Sa, an authentic Korean restaurant that is located in the Ampang. Normally, Koreans consume this traditional dish in the summer for its nutrients, which is to replenish the energy and excessive sweating during the hot summers.
Just like the usual Korean restaurants, we were served with a variety of banchan before the main courses. The kimchi is served in a huge pot; just slice them into pieces – big or small based on your preference with the pair of scissors provided. Contunue Reading
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)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.
I love Fridays, always, as i get to hang out with my Makan Kaki for some real food and chilling out after some tough weekdays.
Kuchai Entrepreneur Park for its well known blooming food hub has now become our choice for food exploring.
We chose to have some Korean delights, fix our tummies with some sourish kick kimchi, DdukBboggi and some grilled meat! Therefore, we had our dinner at Seoul Garden.
The variety of Ban Chan with unlimited refills. Contunue Reading

The Environment was full with sense of Korea. Contunue Reading
7 is an odd number.
7 is someone’s lucky number.
There are 7 days in a week
But, how can 3 + 1 = 7?!
Initially, 3 + 1 = 4
But I can make 3 + 1 = 7
We can make 3 + 1 = 7.
That’s us; the 7 of us had a small little farewell gathering for Christine at Daorae Korean BBQ Restaurant (다오래). We spent the whole evening until all the customers left the restaurant.
As usual, we were the last to leave.
7 of us at a long dining table with 2 BBQ (not pit but) pan.
Daorae serves a wide variety of Korean dishes which made our citygal dunno what to choose. And finally… we had……..
Vege to wrap up the BBQ-ed meat.
Honestly, our dining table started to get a little ‘busy and messy’ with all the side dishes and dishes placed on it.
Part of the side dishes. There were a lot more, but I could manage these much.
I like this the most but they said this was extremely sour for them. Hence, I sapu all.
Another side dish I like, The radish cubes.
Gal-bi-tang which was the popular favorite mild and light beef rib soup served with rice. As for the taste, you have to ask those who can take beef — all but not me and WenChing. From what they said, it was warm, it was nice and it tasted just right that could really soothe their empty stomachs!
I am a little blurry here and don’t know which is which now.
Sam-kyub-sal which was the thin slices of belly pork without marinade, served with seasoned sesame oil sauce.
Kimchi-jeon, the spicy, savory pancake comprising of kimchi tossed in light butter, pan fried to perfection. However, it was a little too thick and too floury for me.
Pa-jeon for us. It was very good in the thin slices and tasted great with the dipping sauce.
Kimchi Kong Na Mul Guk, the kimchi and bean sprout in dried Pollack meat soup served with rice. It was light and neither oily nor greasy. This is best for someone who doesn’t want their stomach to be burden up.
What’s more when dining with this bunch of lovely friends?! S-H-O-J-U for us! Yum Seng lar werrr…
Happy farewell to our dearest Christine! ~
I said 3 + 1 = 7 but there are 8 people in the photo?! Yep, we bumped into ekeng. What a coincidence. He was having his dinner with his girl friends
