Met up with Kevin, Jean and Wing for dinner at Dae Jang Kum yesterday as Wing hasn’t tried it before. I think it is probably my fourth time there. Since there were 4 of us, we ordered BBQ (my favourite)- pork belly with kimchi and marinated chicken.
We were served complimentary side dishes of fish cakes, potato, pasta, some shoots, kimchi and pickled vegetable (we just dug in-no photos) which can be refilled. There was even a push button at the table which we could use to get attention of the waiter/waitress when we needed more refills and trust me, we used it plenty of times!
The photo might not do justice to how good the thinly sliced pork looks before being cooked. Just from the reddish-pinkish colour of the meat, is enough to make my mouth water knowing how fresh it is. I really enjoyed the barbecued pork belly, minus the fats, especially after being dipped into the sesame oil with salt. It was just yums- exactly how I love my Korean BBQ pork served. I think there was a tad too much of fat but it all went down into my tummy anyways- no wasting!
The DJK marinated chicken took some time to cook and ended up something like a stew with plenty of sauce, not really BBQ style.
The marinated chicken was quite a big serve, there was even noodles at the bottom and black fungus too. The noodles were good, chewy but flavoursome. It is a nice dish but for me, BBQ pork belly still wins hands down.
