    DAORAE Korean BBQ Restaurant

    This renowned establishment has extended its international empire to Penang and the booming growth can easily be witnessed by the sprouting branches. The most cherished branch at Tanjung Tokong where a huge and bright LED-board grabs your attention. The interior does soaks you into a part of Koreatown, unique Korean-themed decorations, tatami-style seats and the regular tables and chairs. What else, opt for their BBQ, where braziers loaded with charcoals sits in the middle, along chili paste, sesame oil sauce, garlic, fresh lettuce and series of sides. It’s worthy to try all the meat, yet their pork and lamb have received the most applause. They also score points with their attentive hospitality where the staffs can kind enough to help at any time. Kimchi, fish steamboat, and noodles are worthy chomping too.

    Among the pillars why Korean food is skyrocketing in Penang, KO.B.Q has two joints which are both brimming with customers. It’s spacious, fully air-conditioned and admirable hospitality, which are among the reasons to justify the crowd but the main scorer is the Korean BBQ. The brazier is loaded with charcoals which give it an appealing aroma and elegant chars on the meat. Marinated Pork Rib and BBQ Spicy Pork Belly are delectable along a multitude of other meats. Certainly a joint to invest time and money for a memorable moment with friends and family!

    Kannichikan Yakiniku Restaurant

    Just a few steps away from Island Plaza, this restaurant have been drawing lots of admiration for their fusion Japanese and Korean style barbeque. Barbeque grills filled with charcoals are integrated into each table in a comfy interior. Be with raw or marinated meats, while sizzling on the grill, it permeates an alluring aroma that whets your appetite at once. Their pork belly and lamb are highly vaunted yet leaving without trying their Wagyu Beef is close to a crime. Once charred at both sides, the meat is tender and juicy, just melts in your mouth at the finest touch. Paired with their homemade sauces and other sides, you would hook with the flaming grill.
