Korean BBQ is very popular in JB and there are like hundreds shops around.
Everybody just loves Korean BBQ, especially meat lovers!
There is a relatively new Korean BBQ in town- Palsaik Korean BBQ （八色烤肉）. The name of the restaurant directly points out that they offer eight colours of pork belly for BBQ! The eight colours/flavours ranged from non-spicy to very spicy one. I personally prefer the herb one as the meat is with some light but nice aroma. The meat is fresh, vegetable is fresh, but there are not many choices on the menu as compared to other Korean BBQ restaurants around the area. The restaurant looks very clean and kind of spacious. The presentation of the food is very attractive. The food priced moderately higher than surrounding Korean BBQ restaurants, however it becomes very crowded and reservation is strongly suggested during friday and saturday nights.
We ordered the premium set of Korean BBQ which costs about RM 200++. It was shared by 4 people and it was just nice (becos we have two big eaters!)
Each table is compulsory to order at least for a set. Other than the sets, the choices for side dishes are very little, less than 10 items i think (mainly rice, noodles, porridge or some mushrooms).There are three types of sets.
- 3 colours (for 2 persons)
- 8 colours (for 3-4 persons)
- premium set (for 3-4 persons)
For the 3 colours, there is an option to choose either kimchi or grilled deodeok while grilled deodeok is served with every premium set ( there are only 4 pcs of deodeok for premium set, which means each person will get one only). What is deodeok? It is also called Lanceolate. is a flowering plant. It originates in East Asia. It is a variety of bonnet bellflower. The roots are used in Korean cuisine. In Chinese, it is called 沙参. Give it a try, it is abit crunchy and tasty.
I love their vegetables, they were so fresh. They provide different varieties of salad leaves to wrap the grilled pork belly such as red and green coral lettuce, romaine lettuce and mint leaves. There are also raw garlic, green chili and enoki mushroom.
