Daorae Garden @ Sri Hartamas

I was one of the lucky few fellows to find this gem way back when this was the first outlet and when they dont even charge service tax..flash back to the has a few outlets under their belt and everyone in the world knows about i guess its about time i blog about it before its like the norm..Chopped off from Tim from 3meals..this is the address:

Korean BBQ Restaurant
DAORAE GARDEN (Tel : 03-6203-2616)
No.9, 1st Floor, Plaza Crystal Ville Center,
Jalan 23/70A, Desa Sri Hartamas,
50480 Kuala Lumpur

As for directions..turn into Hartamas..before heading towards Hartamas Square, you will see a Maybank..its upstairs..the funny thing with this place is..i always thought it was doerae..little did i know its daorae..but i still call it doerae..sounds better mah..

As for the food..they serve a variety of bbq and soup dishes..have a look and judge for yourself..

Damn it..even the paper proved me wrong and told me it was daorae garden..

The minute you order BBQ, a bed of hot charcoal is put under the grill...

Then your assorted dishes..

Vege for you to wrap up in your lettuce and your pork..tastes damn good thats all i know..i am not here to give you a lesson on Korean cuisine..

This are the rest of the items to complete the BBQ pork dish..damn complex..

I am sorry to all my muslim friends for torturing you of pictures of pork..but its just out of this world..oh yeah this is by the way..pork shoulder..not exactly very fatty and very chewy in a good way..

I want to torture even my faithful readers..This is the ultimate test..dont you think?

Courtesy of my dinner companion..the finished product..too greedy couldnt wrap it up exactly..oh you get the idea..dont just anyhow whack ok?

I am seriously bad with korean names..this was the mini version of Ha meul tang..its seafood based..comes with a bowl of rice..this was not tongue burning and throat its ok!

To finish it off, another classic dish, Bulgogi..if not mistaken as phrased from the menu "cooked in its sauces".. i didnt know the cow got so much sauces one..but its damn good end of story..this will make your appetite for rice go sky have be warned..

Three of these dishes came to the amount of RM78.20..pretty decent..the good quality beef goes for RM48-50 for a portion and its a very decently sized portion considering you have to do so much work just to eat it the correct way.. The sharing size soups goes for RM50-RM80..they also serve a variety of old school korean dishes..This is certainly one of the best and affordable korean places that i go to and recommend..very fast and efficient..what more can i say? Rating is once again on the high 8s..hmmm a hovering 8.4 out of 10..infact i am just beginning to think..where can i get some shittier food so i can get a balance haha...Well what can i say? I have got a damn good taste bud..or maybe everything tastes good for me..

There's another branch in Kota Damansara. Its not as packed as the Desa Sri Hartamas' branch and the service is superb! Try the sliced pork belly with oyster kimchi...its so bloody sinful!!!
