Best Korean Restaurants in Penang

Written by Updated ago

When most people think of Korean food, what comes to their mind is kimchi and a whole lot of banchans (side dishes). But that’s only a slice of the cake. Although Korean cuisine is usually an acquired taste, many Malaysians have grown to love Korean cuisine for its rare uniqueness. Their unique twists in common delights like fried rice, stews and grilled meats are nothing but delicious. Adhering to the growing demand, many new restaurants have evolved to a more modern and sophisticated Korean dining which also implements localised dishes suitable for the local Penangites. Just remember to go over with a hungry tummy.

    Daorae Korean BBQ Non halal 01f78899591256b47a2708a65f6538333b86089a30fbd22545a41deece4ea490

    Daorae Korean BBQ is without a doubt, one of the earliest Korean restaurant to have set foot in Malaysia, way before the rush of K-wave! Daorae is also one of the more prestigious restaurant as they only serve fairly premium meat, seafood and side dishes.You can also expect the service to be on point, where the waiters will do all the cooking for you. If you're confident or rather, prefer your own way of BBQing, by all means, just mention it to the staffs and they will allow you to do so. Last but not least, expect the prices to be a little higher than usual!
