Uncle Jang Korean Restaurant @ Bandar Puteri, Puchong

Uncle Jang is no longer a new icon in town. Gaining its popularity rapidly, this Korean Restaurant has more and more franchises mushrooming around the country. Wondering what's so special about it, they only specialize in one signature food item after all...

Each table of 4 has a huge sizzling pan at the centre, specially fitted to cook the Korean famous traditional food, Dak-Galbi. I learn that Dak-Galbi is the Korean sizzling chicken, but here in Uncle Jang they mix fresh Chicken Chop, Sweet Potatoes, Vegetables and Rice Cakes together as a main course. 

The minimum order is two pax, and it comes in Normal (RM19) or Hot Spicy (RM22) flavour. Notice that the place is brightly lit, and each diner is equipped with a red apron, to prevent sizzle-burns on the skin. Very hygienic, but the only complaint I have is the air ventilation there. It is very stuffy despite of having high-powered air-conditioning, and my hair till toe smells like BBQ upon leaving the restaurant!

To enhance the variation in your food,
pick some extra dishes ("Sari") such as mushroom, noodles, udon, sweet potato and rice cake.
and stir-fry them with some Korean chilli pepper sauce--- Lightly sweet with hints of spiciness.


Have your first mouthful of rice cake, then followed by chicken together with vegetables.
The longer it is cooked, the more I love the burnt charness on the rice cakes and other condiments.

While enjoying the sizzling hot plate, we are served with some kimchi and fresh vegetables, best eaten together with the charred chicken meat. After finishing two third (2/3) of your meal, it's time to order some fried rice.

Simply add white rice, vegetables and the signature sauce into the remaining leftovers, 
and such simple combination will transform into something really good!

I shall call it kimchi fried rice, a variation on a sweeter note. Although we order the original-flavoured set, 
it is still quite spicy along with the added heat from the freshly cooked food.

Besides rice and noodles, there are other side dishes like Pork Bulgogi (Barbequed Pork) and Samgye-tang (Chicken soup with ginseng) which I'd love to try during my next visit.

Verdict
#1 Pretty satisfied with the portion and taste. Definitely a comfort food when I crave for Korean flavours.
#2 The service here is rather slow, but I don't know how true it is about the branch in Ampang having better quality in terms of food and service.
#3 Pricewise, it makes a good economical choice to satisfy your Korean cravings when your wallet is tight.

  9. Nice post. I learn one thing more difficult on completely different blogs everyday. It should always be stimulating to read content from different writers and follow just a little one thing from their store. I’d want to use some with the content material on my weblog whether or not you don’t mind. Natually I’ll give you a hyperlink on your internet blog. Thanks for sharing.
