Bonjuk @ Desa Sri Hartamas

(picture taken of their website)

After a very heavy meal..obviously you got to balance it off..just like yin and yang..i have virtually slept the whole day..and probably according to my stop watch, i have another half an hour before my medicine will kick in and i will be in deep slumber till tommorrow..sadly yes, i will be stepping back into office..seating at home sick isnt exactly a very good feeling..and to tell you the truth..i miss the porridge here..exactly the kind of homely food that i would like since i am down with flu..


I think once again, this place needs no introduction, Bonjuk..the korean place that serves healthy food in the form of porridge and bibimbap..Does healthy means no taste and no good? Lets find out..

The Spicy Octopus Bibimbap..You pay and extra RM1 or 2 for the hotpot version..lots of vegetables and plenty of octopus also..stir everything together and you have such a homely meal..tons of carbs and protein too..

Going to be a place that specializes in porridge, one must order porridge..its just like you go into a sushi bar and dont order sushi or to a seafood restaurant and order chicken and beef.. The Ginseng Chicken porridge..served teo-cheow style..meaning you can still see the rice grains.. this porridge is exactly what you want to eat on a cold rainy day..the chicken breast is thinly sliced and the ginseng is not as bitter as one would think..

Along with the main dishm they serve kim chi and a type of cold beef that tasted like tuna to me hehe.. They are pretty attentive and will refill your kim chi whenever you finish everything..

I have another weakness and it is porridge and i like the korean style..very unique and something special..definitely will come back for their more unique ones like pumpkin porridge.. A solid 8 out of 10..and i think this is halal i reckon..address is

Well i am sick so this is as short as sweet as it will get..Their website has the comprehensive menu with a description of each porridge..I think they are starting to do delivery within the Hartamas area as well!..Prices start from RM 13-22 and they currently dont charge service tax and charge..so thats 15% saved..What else?

Oh yeah on another note..my friend and I are looking to do another joint blog..we are thinking of humour..but there are tons of blogs out there who do that..so we are clueless..what shall we blog about? Our main intention is to entertain as many people as we can..make fun, get people to laugh, and feature plenty of happy hours as we can..so the question is..what do you guys see in a blog? Do you keep going back because of...? Appreciate all the comments..

"Joe" who is constantly craving said...

zewt: well is it way too many?..just trying to see if that makes a huge diff in my earnings..temporary..i promise =).. you havent answer my question..

mamabok: well it depends on what nationality we are i guess? but yeah even chinese have several styles of porridge..

boo_licious said...

Yum! When did you eat this? We were just there on Wednesday night.

On the blog - I guess if the items are original and unique then people will continue to read. You notice a rehash of the same items in most blog and a lot of copy and paste involved.

"Joe" who is constantly craving said...

Xiu Long Bao said...

"Joe" who is constantly craving said...

i am very very sorry..!!! as return i wish the next time u go..u get ur durian choc ok?

jason said...

So bibimbap is rice la...? I was always thinking that bibimbap is porridge for some unknown reasons -_-;

jason said...

About the blog.... how about reviews on travel? destinations, accomodations, attractions, etc etc

"Joe" who is constantly craving said...

jason: bibimbap is the hot stone rice where there is a variety of vegetables and meat..some serve an egg as well..but the special thing is the hot bean paste..

thanks for the tips! but we were actually leaning on just humour..considering our line of profession, we seldom go holidays..

cookies_cream said...

Wow, porridge served in Korean Restaurant...must go!! But..why is it in Hartamas? Tempat yang I don't really know. =.="

"Joe" who is constantly craving said...

cookiesncream: yes its a must go!..well the area is pretty easy to go to..considering hartamas is actually a very small area to begin with..they actually have a map on their website..

wmw said...

Bonjuk is a nice place that serves good food with a smile! Hahaha...

wmw said...

Oops...as for your future blog. If it's based on your original humour...the success of your blog would depend on whether your humour is as good as you think it is! Hee hee...So, run the ideas around first...and get some feedback. You'll know in time.

"Joe" who is constantly craving said...

wmw: haha nice smile indeed eh? captivates u females..no wonder the food naturally tastes better..haha
yeah will do a proper launch from my blog if it starts..still trying to gather some ideas..

Lyrical Lemongrass said...

gotta love Bonjuk. Can't find anything wrong with it. Food's great, service is great... ;-)

"Joe" who is constantly craving said...

ll: i cant find anything wrong if it too.. i reckon the ultimate objective is to try every single flavour of every porridge..haha

Jackson said...

ha? porridge with ginsend??? eee... i dun take ginseng

"Joe" who is constantly craving said...

jackson: ginseng good for you ler..very "poh" one.. i had it the ginseng chicken once in korea and i nose bleed after that hehe

leo said...

you do know that good korean abalone porridge is green (sickly green like it's grown fungus)?

its because they use not only the meat of the abalone but the innards to add flavour. there's this really good porridge place off the coast of jeju island in korea which serves up a feisty abalone porridge! *drools*

Psssttt... Just FYI: Bonjuk is not Halal. I went there for lunch today and saw that they serve pork.
