Food: Mr Dakgalbi @ Bukit Bintang, Kuala Lumpur

At the mere mention of 'Dakgalbi', my heart races and I can get super hyper because I absolutely love this dish. As most of you guys know, I am a die-hard fan of Korean food and I'm not just saying it for fun because I do cook 'doenjang jjigae' (beanpaste stew) and 'kimchi jjigae' (kimchi stew). I have been making my own kimchi for the past one year, but I'm no perfect chef because I think I need plenty of practice to get the taste right.

Anyway, I headed over to Mr Dakgalbi at Bukit Bintang yesterday for a blogger's event. It was pretty tiring to take a one hour train ride down to hustles and bustles of the city at night but it was worth it once I saw the pretty interior of the shop. 

Here's one which I grabbed from my Instagram hee!

Pretty, no? :)

The food finally arrived and as usual, it's served in a large, flat pan. We were so special that the CEO, Mr Ahn decided to cook it for us. Before you feast your eyes on those mouth watering pictures, here's a brief outline what 'Dakgalbi' is all about and why people love it. 

There's chicken (Dakgalbi translates to chicken ribs, but they decided to use chicken thigh because the meat is smoother), rice cake, onion, scallions, cabbage, noodles (or ramyun, perhaps) and rice.


To those who don't fancy eating vegetables, this is probably the best way for you to get those vitamins. They cook this so well that even the cabbages are good. Oh, despite being too spicy for me, the ingredients such as the chicken and 'ddeok' (rice cake) in this was definitely of the best quality. The chicken was marinated well and filled with flavours.

A shot of the rice which they usually add after you eat half of what was firstly cooked in the pan.

Pizza rice!
Oh, and they added some cheese inside to make it exactly like pizza. Don't worry, the cheese wasn't too strong and overwhelming. Just nice for me actually.

Here's a special dish of the night, 'Jangban Noodles', courtesy of the generous boss. Haha. It's a spicy noodle which was served cold and although it tasted quite nice, I was too full to stomach anything else. I still have a whole lot of this in the fridge and I ate it for lunch just now. It was a little like kimchi mixed with noodles to me, though.

Take One with the emcee of the night, Sean! Yes, we are still in the CNY mood :)

Take Two! 

There are lots of selfies of the night, but I shall save you guys from my self obsession. Haha.

Anyway, for more information, head over to their Facebook and the address of this awesome place is as below:
