    Che Go Korean BBQ Restaurant

    Another Korean BBQ joint that befits the quote – food brings people together. The immaculate interior is designed to make us forget we are in Johor Bahru with Korean artistic touches here and there. Among the standouts from the meat fare is their juicy and tender beef that is utterly drool-worthy from the moment it sizzles on the blistering brazier which rather looks like a luminous light due to the vertical pockets. Delish condiments and sauces galvanise the whole pick and grill merrymaking.

    Shik Gaek Korean Family Restaurant

    Unpretentious welcoming and ambiance that offers a taste of home, a Korean home perhaps, are reasons why this restaurant is a must-visit. Yet the main draw is their scrumptious spread of meats that occupy the sizzling grill, which is often embroidered with series of sides that round off a wondrous meal. Among the celebrities are their marinated pork and chicken. Once the meats shrivel on the heat, aromatic fragrance just hovers in the air and when it’s ready, dip in their homemade sauces to an extra punch of flavours. Moreover, you’ll be armed with Korean spoon and chopsticks, aforementioned Korean home, oh boy it is!

    Famed and fabled with numerous branches across Malaysia, isn’t a surprise being the best bet in Johor Bahru too. The eatery is adorned with hanging Chorong lamps as well as smoke-free hoods which point directly to the built-in braziers, where the magic takes place. It’s loaded with scorching charcoals, and truly must-try on the menu is the BBQ beef and pork modum. To further amp up your delightful dilemmas, a bevy of sides beg to a part of your grilling party, such as lotus roots, assorted kimchi, and mashed potatoes, to name a few.

    After satiating the palate of Singaporeans, this feted restaurant has frolicked over to Johor Bahru, thank you lord and hello authentic BBQ! Speaking off authentic, they use charcoal fire which is roofed with wire mesh, enrobing the succulent meats with smoky flavours. A long tray of fresh lettuce and other crunchy vegetables tags along the BBQ meal. Regarded as wizards of unique combinations, their thinly sliced beef brisket drenched in a pool of special sauce is not to be missed. Thick slabs of bacon are noteworthy too.

    When a restaurant specifies the type of bbq they offer, you know they mean business. Like every other KOrean bbq, you can expect a great deal of banchan (Korean side dishes) and variety of meats to compliment. The only question is, are you willing to pay the extra? Slices of pork and beef here are fairly generous, so it does justify the price. But then again, it's all up to you.

    Tips

    Reservations and set menu available.

    Palsaik Korean BBQ has been famed for having 8 different flavours of marination for their pork belly. It's pretty much a display of gradient, and a great one at that. Each one of the 8 marinated pork has its own distinct flavour, but there are a few that are quite similar as a whole. From spicy to savoury, sweet to tangy, they have it all.
