Best Korean BBQ Restaurants in KL

Written by Updated ago

In recent years, Korean cuisine has exploded in popularity owing to the success of Hallyu or the Korean Wave, bringing with it a surge in the embracing of Korean culture such as K-Pop, dramas, movies, and of course, food. One of the more popular choices of this type of cuisine is the Korean barbecue. This type of dish refers to the Korean method of roasting beef, pork, chicken and seafood over a built-in brazier at the diner’s table.

    Sae Ma Eul BBQ Non halal 01f78899591256b47a2708a65f6538333b86089a30fbd22545a41deece4ea490

    Sae Ma Eul BBQ restaurant may not win an award for its bare setup, but it’s the food that keeps the crowd coming back. Firstly, the barbecue is done atop a wire mesh over a real charcoal flame. There are plenty of choices on the menu but if you’re a first timer, we recommend the barbecue set which comes with sliced pork belly, pork shoulder and baby octopus. One of their signature side dishes is the Choirutan Jumoekbab (spicy rice ball) which is a mix of rice, seaweed, sesame and gochujang (spicy Korean condiment) rolled into small balls and placed on the grill. This results in rice balls that are both sweet and spicy, complete with a crusty texture.

    BBQ-K is a Korean barbecue buffet restaurant packed with an irresistible assortment of marinated beef, pork, chicken and fresh seafood to toss onto the grill. Four different sauces are provided to go with your barbecued meat. In particular, the ‘really spicy’ sauce manages to deliver a nasty kick! While meat lovers will revel at the abundance of protein, the side dishes are equally noteworthy. Kimchi fans will be delighted at the multiple permutations that include kimchi fried rice and kimchi jjigae (kimchi stew).

    Ola Korean BBQ GardenNon halal 01f78899591256b47a2708a65f6538333b86089a30fbd22545a41deece4ea490

    Ola may not sound like a convincing name for a Korean restaurant, but they certainly do serve a stunning collection of authentic Korean dishes. Everything that you'll find here is pretty common; wooden tables and chairs, metal chopsticks, a bulky menu and dishes you'd expect. However, what makes this place truly stands out would be the 'banchan' offered, as well as their signature slices of duck. Grilled to tender perfection, the duck is certainly something that you'll have to try when you're here at Ola Korean BBQ Garden.

    Tips

    Occasionally, there are special menus.

    Things to expect

    A stunning looking interior with artificial grass.

    Best with

    Crazy FishNon halal 01f78899591256b47a2708a65f6538333b86089a30fbd22545a41deece4ea490

    Crazy Fish is really a restaurant that stays true to its name. They're one of the few Korean restaurants in Malaysia that serve live octopus. Yes, totally uncooked, killed alive while the tentacles are still wiggling and doused in sesame sauce and served in a small plate. The best part of this would be the experience as you'll be able to see it being slaughter right in front of you. Apart from that gruesome moment, the live octopus thing is an acquire taste. Now if you're looking for something a little more common, then we highly suggest some other place. 

    Tips

    Famed for their sashimi as well!

    Things to expect

    Live octopus!
