Thanks for the wonderful invitation, I recently went to Kyung Joo Restaurant that’s located same floor with the cinema at Mid Valley Megamall and sample some of their signature Korean dishes.
Kyung Joo was the capital of the ancient kingdom of Silla and often referred as the museums without walls. It is well known as the main destination in South Korea for visitors who are interested in the cultural heritage of Silla and architecture of the Joseon Dynasty. The cuisine of Kyung Joo is generally spicy and salty, similar like the cuisine in Gyeongsang province.
Established in year 1998, Kyung Joo Korean Restaurant is the 1st outlet opened in Mid Valley, featuring delights of modern Korean cuisine and coupled with exceptional, high standards of service.
With a good mix of spicy and savoury delicious Korean dishes, guests will surely enjoy themselves with Kyung Joo’s menu that includes Korean Barbecue, Dakgalbi, Toasted Rice Ball, Budae Jjigae, Bibimbap, Korean Noodles, Fried Grilled Fish, Korean Pancake and etc.
A variety of banchan and it is refillable. My favorite is the refreshing pickled radish.
Kyung Joo serves all types of beverages including alcoholic and Korean traditional drinks like ginseng tea, fruit enzyme concentrate, rice wine, Jinro shoju, plum wine, Hite beer and etc. My glass of refreshing Passion Mojito (RM14.80) that mixed with Korean Jinro shoju.
Literally means fire meat in Korean, Bulgogi is a Korean dish that usually consists of grilled marinated beef. Made from thin slices of prime cuts beef, the meat is marinated before cooking to enhance the flavor and tenderness with a mixture of soy sauce, sugar, sesame oil, garlic, pepper and other ingredients such as scallions, ginger, onions or mushrooms.
Kyung Joo offers diners a selection of 8 flavors for BBQ beef, including black pepper, spicy sauce, ginseng, honey, kimchi, black sauce, garlic, miso, which priced at RM17.80 each. Diners will get passion fruit salad for free when order any of the 4 flavors BBQ beef.
Besides BBQ beef, Kyung Joo also serves 8 flavors BBQ pork at the price of RM15.80 each, which available in spicy sauce, ginseng, honey, kimchi, black sauce, garlic, black pepper and miso.
Served with lettuce or other leafy vegetables at side, you can use it to wrap the cooked meat, and often is along with a dab of Ssamjang sauce or other side dishes as well, then eaten together to enjoy mouthful of different flavors and textures.
There’s just something so addictively good about this Kimchi Jun Gol (RM48.80). Look! They put in such a big piece of homemade kimchi together with meat as well as vegetable and let it simmered until all the flavors soaked in well. Jeongmal mashisseo (really delicious)!
The friendly and experience staffs who can assist you to cook a nice Dakgalbi Chicken (RM48.80) meal. Dakgalbi is another popular Korea signature, a spicy stir-fried chicken dish made with boneless chicken, chewy rice cakes and vegetables.
I like Bibimbap, a well-known Korean rice dish mixed together with meat and assorted vegetables. Kyung Joo offers 3 types of Bibimbap here, Vegetables (RM19.80), Chicken (RM19.80) and Beef (RM20.80). The homemade secret recipe sauce is what set this Bibimbap different from others with addictive taste that suit my taste buds well.
