(Last Updated On: December 28, 2022)

I love Korean food (한국 음식), and I have discovered quite a few incredible Authentic Korean restaurants in Malaysia. But, I’m specifically always craving Korean BBQ, and to find the Halal and delicious version of that can be a little bit challenging.

After tons of research on Instagram, I spotted this one pork-free restaurant that served Halal meat in PNB Perdana Kuala Lumpur called Kung Jung Korean Restaurant!

Lili’s thoughts on Korean BBQ:

The marinate of Korean BBQ is perfect. You can smell the aroma of the raw meat when they burnt it on the charcoal grill. Then, it dissolves into your mouth.

You must also try them in dipping sauce (Ssamjang, 쌈장) and make them into a wrap (Ssam, 쌈). Adding chilli and raw garlic also enhances the meat taste. If you need carbohydrates, order and put some rice there! Perfect meal.

Lili’s thoughts on Korean snacks and side dishes:

I consider Korean pancakes and Topokki Korean snacks because that’s what I will eat for snacks. The banchan (반찬), aka side dishes, is something that every Korean restaurant will serve.

The pajeon is crispy, thick and perfect. While the Topokki sauce got that smokey taste, and it’s not as spicy as I thought. The rice cake is also cooked perfectly.

All the banchan are good. But you will keep coming back for the cheesy mashed potatoes. By the way, ask away if you want to refill the side dishes. It’s complimentary.

Lili’s thoughts on Korean main dishes:

The gochujang sauce and everything match made in heaven on Bibimbap. I can’t explain this further since I took one bite from my friend. But nothing could go wrong with this dish.

The Gom Tang is a bit bland. But, they will give you salt and pepper so that you can adjust the taste to your liking. So basically, they give you the base, and it’s up to you to change. The meat, though, is enormous!

While the Yuk Gae Jang was okay for me, you can taste the kick slightly, but I think it’s bland.

Overall, I’m thrilled to encounter Kung Jung Korean restaurant. I’ve been there twice and going to keep coming back for more. The price for me is affordable for Korean BBQ with the amount and quality. Besides, the main meal’s price range is similar to other Korean restaurants.
