If you ask me to choose between Korean and Chinese dishes, I will surely opt for the latter... but when I asked my kids which they rather prefer, they opt for the Korean food in One Voice simultaneously!  I shall call this Our Generation Gap....

Two versus One.... so we ended up in DAORAE Korean BBQ in De Gardens, Ipoh.  I haven't been there before and I am amazed by their comfortable settings and ambience... one setback though...

There are two type of settings, those who opt for the normal table and chair will have to sit "outside" and the younger ones, I am sure they prefer the setting without chairs but with a "Big Hole" in the middle for you to put our legs.... (if you know what I mean)

There we are... without chairbacks...
the silver thing is an exhaust chute to "vacuum" out the smoke...
the smoke-less charcoals...
prime ribs... 
(we don't have to lift a hand to do that,
the cooking done by the waiters)
bottomless sidedishes..
my son asked for the pancakes many times.. Gosh!
table full... 
fried rice with beef....
this steamboat kimchi with mixed varieties...
Overall, the Korean meal is not really for me...
I don't really enjoyed eating these..
(maybe my teeth were aching due to too much chewing!)
Don't ask me about the price..
It was just wayyyyyy too high for me! LOL...
For that price, I can have a Super Nice Chinese Dinner!!

(Yes, yes... I guess I am not Up and Trendy!)


  1. You're not alone... Korean food is a no-no for me, except the stone bowl rice, bibimbap.

  2. Korean food is not bad....
    I like d BBQ with lettuce wrap....
    We always ask for lots of lettuce...

  3. pam: lets go chinese!!!

    simpleperson: yes, that is the only thing i like too..lettuce with lots of fillings inside!

  4. I must go and hv a look one day..

  5. yeah, usually they are more expensive than chinese food not unless you take abalone or big prawns. but the kimchi soup looks...slurrpy!!

  6. Love korean BBQ.. the flavour which cant get it at home-cook..

  7. i had these korean bbq in seoul like a couple of years back.. the waiter did not help us to cook, but we truly enjoyed cooking the meat. I had 4 or 5 rounds of those red meat.. nom nom!

  8. This looks all very modern and so well thought out.

  9. We have a Korean place here...been around for years and years and very popular. Been there a few times before - not bad but I dunno how authentically Korean it is.

  10. wenn: do go and savour.. let me know what you think..

    lena: if u like korean food, go for it! kim chi is not my cup of tea..

    nikel: i think younger people loves it more than me older ones.. hahaha..

    isaac: this one no refill so the waiter cook it.. if bottomless then we have to cook them.. hahaa.

    ginny: yes, the business not bad too..

    stp: i dont know..not my favourite kind of food.. very backdated one.. :p

  11. Duno why, but i never fancy Korean food. Somehow I still hoping I can visit the country some days..ehehhe

  12. I love DAORAE Korean BBQ too, I have my blogspot here too =)

  13. Pancake and Kimchi are Korean most signature food. The Kimchi with noodles inside looks so good.

  14. I can only eat the main dish but not the side dishes, eg kimchi. I prefer Chinese food too. haha

  15. Not a fan of Korean food. I am more to those chinese food. Both my kids also love Korean food, the young geneation.

  16. yeeling: if u go korea, everyday also eat like this... like it or not.. hahaa..

    june: oh, u love it? ok i go and see..

    yan: too sour for me.. :)

    mnhl: we are die hard fans.. hahaa..

    irene: lets shake hands..

  17. Ya...I agree with you! Soooo expensive! And the Japanese places too...and the western ones but the young people simply love such places. I think they would need to earn a lot of money to be able to afford those places and that kind of lifestyle. I think old people more careful with money - simpler tastes but pockets very full. Young people - got style, got class...pocket kosong. Oops!!! *better run and hide now...sure lots of people will start bashing me up! LOL!!!!!

  18. Looks very good and great first picture.


  19. I like the service in daorae... haha good food also.. i bet my parents will choose korean food coz they never tried before and they are korean drama addicts xD

  20. i just love to go to korean restaurant, first because of the BBQ, second because of the tons and tons of bottomless banchan they offer at no cost at all.. yummy!! and i like they grill the meat together with so many gloves of garlic!!

  21. I love Korean food and eat it at least once a week, but you do have to be in the mood for it.


Thank you, readers!
