Gami Korean Seafood Restaurant @ Desa Sri Hartamas

My northern indian food cravings bought me to Pride of India, but they kindly refused me..with a very indian english " I am very sorry sir..today we have a private function"...with the heads going right and left..so being disappointed my girlfriend suggested we try korean..as we headed for Doerae Garden, she suggested that one..up there...and since it was raining..why not?..

My first reaction was on the bad side i suppose, i didnt see any hot plates..so where was my bbq?? i opened the menu and was greeted with 2 pages of sashimi..did koreans have a different style of sashimi?? But it was past grand, they served a whole garouper raw for RM250, and the smallest serve of sashimi was RM200..then there was sushi??.. oh dear me..where was the food i used to associate with korean?? So after turning the menu upside down..we found familiar faces once again..and this is what we ordered...

Its upstairs..and this assures me i am in the right block..

The main dish served..Spicy Beef Soup..the taste was more bad then good..but being bad..it grew on me just like ajinomoto or greasy foods..haha

The ultimate..haha white rice to go with the soup of course..

It was meant to be some fish..cant remembered what or in what style..to me it seemed to be battered lightly probably deep fried for a while..then served with a grilled hot plate.. the fish had lots of roe inside and the wasabi and soya sauce enhanced what was a very neutral seafood taste..

Hold and behold..there was heaps of appetizers that came with our meal..starting off with grilled egg?? haha wasnt very smooth unlike the jap and chinese style..

There was even a pancake that would cost me around RM 15-20 if i had to order it..there was spinach and some mushrooms..

More pickled stuff!!

This is the unmistaken symbol of Korean Cuisine..Kimchi...wah..

This was definitely a korean place with a decent quality in food but shows i guess how seafood is prepared ala the korean style e.g. the fish i ordered.. So if you want to try how koreans prepare their sashimi..and sushi..head on down to this place that deserves at least a 7 out of 10 rating..btw.. the whole meal was only RM 50!..cheap also..this place is opposite Edo Jo..the address is in that review..

Looks interesting. Seems to be a std dish, that egg one as I remember it was given to Precious Pea too. Heard abt Pride of India's value for money buffet. Is it available at night also?

Someone who is constantly craving said...

yes the egg was abit..errr..if not for the protein..wouldnt bother..

Precious Pea said...

I normally ignore the egg....tasted so overcooked. Kimchi..yumzz...just kim chi and white rice is good enuff for me.
