Jung Won Korean BBQ @ Jalan Ampang Hilir, KL

Interesting place for non-Halal Korean BBQ, near Jalan Ampang......

I ate at this restaurant quite a while back but forgot to blog about it....
.... and unfortunately, since it's been a while, I cannot remember exactly how everything tastes (my bad!)...

Anyway, I will refrain from making any detailed comments on the food in my review, but my general feel of the place is:
Nice ambience but food is just ok (taste-wise, and price-wise too it's above average but not great)... but it's worth a try if you're in the area.

The general restaurant area (outside):
Interesting open air setting.....

Tables in the open air section:

(There is also a normal seating area inside the restaurant, if you want)

Duck Dungshim (RM 35+) and Pork Deji Salbee (RM 30+):
Poor ducky and piggy.....

The waiters will cook for you:

Finished product:
Ready to be eaten.....

Lots of side dishes (free!):
Take your pick.....

Kimchi Soup (RM 20+) to warm up on that cool night:

What's a Korean meal without some shoju? - Bek Se Ju (RM 35+):
Our alcohol.....

(Not bad - strong, but a bit bitter because of the added ginseng...)
(So, if there's ginseng added can this be considered a health drink instead of booze? Can, right? *grin*)

So it's: Interesting open air dining section, good selection of Korean bbq stuff (and some others like noodles and rice dishes) for reasonable prices BUT nothing really bad to say except that my overall impression is that the food is just ok (slightly above average, to be specific)...

  1. tats interesting, outdoor korean bbq..technically less smelly clothes?

  2. to "Joe" who is constantly craving:
    Yup! Great, isn't it? Then you can enjoy the BBQ without smelling like it later... :)

    to Ciki:
    I think it could be because it was raining before we got there....
    (And I was there pretty late for dinner too....)

  3. maybe I'll just stick to my fav Daorae :) Ampang is too far la!

    Well, definitely Daorae is a good choice because it has always been consistently yummy. :)
