Korean BBQ @ San Nae Deul, Publika

Everyone’s crazy about Korean stuff these days.

K-Pop, K-Dramas, K-Culture, K-Food. Not a big fan of the latter, because the cuisine is too spicy and pungent (not to mention too filled with veggies for a carnivore like myself!) But once in awhile, I never say no to a good Korean BBQ πŸ™‚ Especially if it’s my boss treating me to a meal!

We initially wanted to go to an all-you-can-eat buffet but the place was closed on Monday, so we ended up at San Nae Deul in Publika. We had a room all to ourselves, complete with grille for barbecuing. πŸ™‚

We ordered three sets of meat to share: beef slices, pork butt (yes, butt) and my personal favourite, samgyupsal (pork belly).Β All the sets came with unlimited banchan (side dishes). We also got a miso/bean soup, which tasted like taucu (fermented beancurd) and came boiling hot and filled with tofu and veges.

Beef slices were RM50. Although quite tasty, I wouldn’t recommend getting them because they shriveled up after being put on the grille and there was barely enough for everyone.

The banchan. There was blanched spinach, sweet and sticky anchovies, chive pancakes, kimchi (duh!), sweet and sour sausage, beansprout salad, and a couple of other things.

I liked the sweet anchovies which went well with rice. The chive pancakes were delicious and not too oily – so addictive!

Grilled beef.

An attendant will do the grilling for you, so you don’t even have to worry. Sit back, relax, and enjoy the pampering treatment. πŸ™‚

Large slice of sweet onion cooking on the grille together with two large slices of pork butt. :3 Might sound off-putting to some, but the meat is actually tender and fatty.

Forgot to take a pic of the samgyupsal, which is marinated in a spicy, savoury sauce. The resulting meat is a balance of fat and lean, with a melt-in-the-mouth texture. Noms!

With colleagues. We were really loud. I hope we didn’t get blacklisted from the restaurant.

San Nae Deul (Publika) – they have other branches in Puchong and Bangsar as well.
