Sopoong Korean Food, IOI City Mall Putrajaya

Had to pay my phone bill at the mall, so I wandered around in search of dinner. Passed by a quiet, unassuming looking Korean restaurant called Sopoong. The interior was a pleasing green shade with branch-like decorations. The lighting was dim so it didn’t catch my eye at first.

…. guess it didn’t catch the eye of that many other people either. Resto was empty even though it was dinnertime.

Tried ‘Sac Sac’ orange juice. It had lots of pulp in it, but was very very sweet, even when I diluted it with ice. The serving is tiny: just 230+mls.

Cheese ramyeon. Ramyeon = Korean instant noodles, cooked in a delightful miso-like broth that is savoury and just a tad spicy. The version here had bits of oyster mushroom and onions swimming in the soup. The cheese was melty and cheesy, coating the ramyeon with a delightful finish.Another thing I liked about it was even though I ate it slowly,  the noodles did not turn soggy.

My meal came with banchan (sides): a chilli marinated vegetable, kimchi and macaroni salad. The kimchi tasted homemade, fresh, and well seasoned. They also sell it in jars which you can take back home.

Other than ramyeon, they serve typical Korean fare like bulgogi, tobokki (rice cakes), kimchi fried rice and spring onion pancakes, etc.

Chinese New Year is in a week. The malls are decked out in reds, yellows, lanterns and  calligraphy. 🙂 Here in IOI City mall Putrajaya, they had a rotating tree hung with dozens of colourful ribbons.
