Kim's Dakgalbi Korean Food New In Ipoh

A night of mingling with the Korean family and their exotic meal....yes, I was invited to a preview of Korean food by my classmate.  She invited a few of us to try out the Korean food in this restaurant owned by a Korean couple and her family. 
The name of the restaurant... Kim's Dakgalbi meaning Chicken BBQ 
It is situated along  Jalan Medan Ipoh 1B, Medan Ipoh Bistari, Ipoh
The tables and the equipment were imported directly from Korea....
We were served by the Korean couple themselves.... 
We were their first customers before the shop is even opened....
This is how it goes......
First dish with the vegetables and chicken meat....
After one round, they added noodles.... 
When that was finished, the rice was next!! 
Imagine how "bloated" our stomach was then.... LOL....
But worry not, the condiments here is to neutralize what we had eaten.... 
All these while, husband and wife team entertained us with their Korean slant and dialogue...
And I learn a new word... Hadi.. hadi...
Next comes the soup!
Healthy food.. oil-less soup....
OH OH..... anyone loves these???? 
My friends just popped one after another into their mouth.... hmmmmm....
This is nice... 
Korean rice wine (if I didn't get it wrong)
Hadi me please!
One picture to remember our Korean Dinner Gathering!
I learn a new Korean word from the little girl that evening...
She kept calling me to "Hadi" her.....
And now I have numerous pictures of this cute little girl...
 So... anyone can guess what "Hadi" means???


  1. Oh my, this looks amazing! How much for one person? I think we have one just opened in Penang, gonna check it out real soon :D

  2. Not a fan of Korean or Japanese food but their food are mostly very healthy. "Hadi" reminds me of my ex-college....our office boy.

  3. Hadi = heart? Hug?

    You all are VIP guests. Get to be served by owners even before the restaurant is open for business.

  4. I hope you tell us next time what Hadi is! I think it means to get served with a plate of food, or to pass the food. Looks like you had such fun! What is that in the soup, it looks like eggs...

  5. You will walk out of there smelling like some thing form their BBQ hot plate... Don't see the suction thing to suck out all the smoke.

  6. Wow lots of food you had.. Nice.. Usually will order bibimbap, bugolgi and that eggy soup.. All nice.. But I don't really fancy those side dishes though.. Sometimes more than 8 types, not all are nice.. One thing I don't like is my hair will stink after a Korean meal, due to the bbq-ing and all.. But other than that, I like :)

  7. oh Korean food!! nice nice, especially love the BBQ and the wide spread of "banchan" (the side dishes given free).. haha, no idea what Hadi means.. something like hugs, kisses?? hehe.. :p

  8. Looks good. Me wanna try... wait for Jo and SL to be back. They live Korean food like me ;)

  9. This's fun, like everyone cooking together, hehe!!!

  10. I did googled the word and the translation for it, is hardy

  11. It's good that you write about it.

An Evening Dinner At Chef Chew Kitchen, Petaling Jaya

BACK TO SG. BULOH for a couple of days.... Come evening, we went for dinner at Chef Chew Kitchen in Seksyen 19, Petaling Jaya.  Since it was my first time there, I did not know what to expect except to sit back, relax and eat.  LOL... It is a one shop lot restaurant so tables are very limited.  Reservation was made at 6pm to be on the safe side, to avoid crowds and waiting for food was very minimized at this time of the day.  For the seven of us, these dishes were served on the table... Thumbs up even before the dinner...  And soon these are served...  Claypot braised ribs...  Their signature dish... Fish Maw...  First time eating fish maw which is whitish in colour...  Black Beancurd with Pumpkin sauce... Hey, this restaurant indeed serves new to me! This must be Sweet Sauce Chicken... For the American... Cos we Asians like Steamed Chicken like this!  LOL...  And the star dish of the dinner is this...  Freshly steamed and succulent prawns

Reunion At Museum Restaurant At Starling Mall

CLASSMATES REUNION... but not from my year.  i just tagged along with my sister who wanted my company that evening.  She was going to meet up with some of her classmates at The Starling mall.  I did not want to drive there, taking Grab is a much easier and practical choice, considering it was rush hour in the evening.  Furthermore, I am not familiar with the roads... both of us might panic on the federal highway.  LOL...  Having someone to take us there is so stress free, we only have to pay RM20 for the ride.  :)  Our first time to Startling Mall and being made familiar by one of the bloggers, Phong Hong who used to post up her lunch meals taken from there.  We were supposed to meet up at 7pm but we reached there an hour earlier to "survey" the shops and ended up buying a "bit."  Blame it on my sister who always like to give positive comments most of the time!   The dinner was held at The Museum.... Originated from Ipoh actually and how there is a branch

Night Market Along Lee Garden Plaza Hotel, Hatyai

BY THE TIME WE REACHED THE HOTEL, it was almost dark. This time round, we took a longer rest in the hotel... my girl might not need it but I certainly did!  After recharging around 80% of my body strength, we were ready to explore the streets again. Our hotel is really a strategic spot for us tourists.  The street vendors were all ready to boost their sales in front, at the side and along the whole stretch of street where we stayed.  Left, right, front... the place was filled with people and tourists like us... I could hear some of them speaking my dialect, we felt kind of at home instead of being tourists.... Besides the street vendors in front of the hotel, there was a night market just five minutes walking distance away from our hotel, Lee Garden Plaza.... Maybe they only opened during the weekends?  I am not sure about that.. .anyway, we were kind of excited to see all the bright lights along the street.... Come... Let's Go! We started from the beginning of the str
