SEO GUNG Korean BBQ Restaurant @ SS2, PJ

Seo Gung Restaurant, SS2
Korean food is really a little too much for me.... I can never finish their sets....

What I meant by 'a little too much' was literally, before you can even have your main course, you already have 12 little complimentary dishes of appetizer, which comprises of assorted vegetables and fishes at times. The appetizer is re-fillable as long as your main dishes have not all settled in your tummy..

It is located pretty much above Kings confessionary, opposite of Caeser Club/A&W/Swenson, same row as Eu Yan Sang in PJ SS2. It is prominently located and you will not missed it.

The restaurant is filled with waiters, as well as the boss, with the 'ever-wanting- to serve' you best attitude. And it really makes you feel good when you visit the restaurant.
The food there is in fact delicious. We took the family set and it fed 6 adults (with left overs!). It just how amazing that they can actually eat all that everyday.

So, we have the family set which comprises of 2 plates of Galbi servings (BBQ Pork), 1 Bibim Bap, 2 plates of noodles, 2 bowl of soup (Kimchi Tofu & Ginseng Chicken), 1 fish, 1 Korean pancake, 5 drinks and accompanied with complimentary fruits (usually watermelon).

They do have Ala Carte dishes that might find it sufficient. And if you have a chance, do try their rice wine (also comes with ginseng). They do give you a tingy feeling that makes the whole dinner better.

DAIMON Okonomiyaki, Low Yat Plaza

What is your guess for this restaurant? Definitely something Japanese.... We have been eating plenty of Japanese sushi, teppanyaki, temaki, udon, soba...etc... but I can tell you this is something different.


It is located at the LG floor of Low Yat Plaza, the I.T. Mall in KL Golden Triangle. It is kinda of a 'little shop at the corner' feel, situated opposite of the big chinese restaurant. The little logo was said to be found also in facebook.

So, this food is kinda like a pizza but not quite like it. It is rather hard to describe. I would say, Okonomiyaki is actually a Japanese savoury pancake. 

What does it mean? Okonomi = What do you want; and yaki= grilled

Basically, it's a "whatever" grill... :)

The base is made out of a thin layer of floor mix, topped with mountain high cabbage, yellow noodles and meat.

The preliminary round

There are other ingredients depending on what you have ordered. They have just vegies, seafood (i.e. squid & prawn), plain scallops or meat (i.e. pork or chicken). Once the vegies and toppings are pretty much cooked, they will do the eggs.

Final stage

Once the eggs are 1/2 done, they will place the initial vegies, noodles and toppings on top of it. (The benefit of sitting at the bar and watch their every move!!) By this time, you will be going, "I want my food!" Not because it took them long to prepare it, but it was just the urge of wanting to know how it tasted. Unfortunately, that was now the end. The end before the Okonomiyaki was served..... of course is the final touch of decoration!!! Although, don't expect much.

The wait was worth it and to see the process of making it was quite interesting. 

Now, how did it tasted. It is definitely a different type of feeling to it as compared to other Japanese food. I would say you suddenly felt like you are in Hiroshima (where Okonomiyaki is known from). 

Worth a try.

SEONG KEE Hakka Yong Tau Foo

Hunting for nice fresh yong tau foo around PJ Old Town area? then this is the place to come. This place is usually packed during dinner time as it is located in a Food Court. I will usually go 'makan' with my significant other and usually we will order pretty much the same thing.

For the fried ones we will order the brinjal, foo chok and sui kow. Once ordered you will have to wait a while for them to prepare. This is because they do it on the spot once ordered so it is always fresh! I have to say my favourite have to be the fried sui kow. The fillings are well balanced and its not too much skin nor too much meat. The other fried stuffs are good also as the fish paste is smooth and bouncy and not chewy.
