Hey hey ! What’s up ? Class ended early for me today , so Mich and I went to Kimchiharu for lunch . It has been almost 8 months since we last visited this place . It’s still doing so well ! By 12pm it was already 3 quarters full ! We had a seat below the TV . And boy, we kept having this feeling there were people staring at us . But the girls were actually just ogling the K-Pop stars on TV . So perasan of us . But really, their eyes were just glued to the TV and jaws dropped down every time Big Bang or SISTAR’s music video is on.
Kimchi Jeon (RM5.80)
Michelle loved this so , so much . So do I ! It’s really delicious and better with the special chili sauce ! Although a little oily for my liking , it’s really yummy . Try it out !
Spicy Ramyun (RM10.70)
I took the noodles instead of the lunch set .. The lunch sets are at least RM20 ! Sorry, still a student with little $$$ ! Mich ordered the Pork Spicy Ramyun which costs RM1.50 more than mine . Not bad eh ? For RM1.50 you get a few slices of pork !
The noodles are like instant noodles but you can tell the difference that it taste so much better. You’d get what I mean when you try it ! The noodles are served in this little pot which is extremely hot ! Please do keep in mind not to touch the HANDLES . Twice, I touched it by accident and it almost sent me jumping out of my chair. Hence, the soup is really, really hot ! And because it’s so hot, it feels as if it’s extra spicy. But to be honest, any Malaysian can totally handle the soup . It’s so, so good .. *slurps*
Time to do my assignments ! Toodles . (:
HELLO! It’s a fly day and I didn’t go to school. (youdidn’tneedtoknowthat, butohwell.) Anyway, I had dinner at Cinnamon, One World Hotel today, with my lovely mum. They’re having a Seoul Good Promotion aka KOREAN FOOD, BABEH! It’s part of a buffet, so everyone could have what they feel like having. Especially with big families.. You know, the grandparents want authentic traditional food, parents want classy food, kids want junkie food.. Etc. And, you get to taste the Korean food! This is a short and simple post, but hope its worth it.
I saw it before I went into Cinnamon, and ate dinner.. And I saw it again after dinner. I’d like to think it’s been there for the whole night. It seems more magical. Haha.
They played the drums and all. It was loud, but it was good. Full of energy.

Ever tried fine Korean Cuisine? Hey, peeps. I’ve been busy for a while.. I have one more week of trials! Wish me luck! (: Biology 3 tomorrow. OMG. Anyway, back to the restaurant, it’s gorgeously huge with an urban interior. Well, most places would be colourful and traditionally decorated but this is fine dining, people! Da On has a modern look with hidden Korean symbols. Yep, it’ll be tough to find it. You will notice that you needa climb 2-3 steps at the entrance. Well, there’s a secret to that. They have built special devices to make you buy all of their dishes! JOKE. Actually, they built special suction system to make sure you will leave the restaurant still smelling good. We often relate Korean food to kimchi and barbeque you see. So They had to do something to keep the smoke away as it is a fine dine restaurant.
Anyway, the food is quite expensive especially if you order the expensive things.. Like the wagyu beef. D: Ooh, and they have a special dessert that none other in Malaysia (so far) has! I’ll tell you about that later. Let’s get to the pictures, shall we?
Those are the many side dishes offered by Da On, with the wagyu beef in the middle.
See how huge the prawns are!
Even the mushrooms look huge. I feel like Alice in Wonderland.
In layman’s term, beef sashimi with raw egg yolk and pear.
Charcoal Ice Cream. Heyyy.. I’m not kidding here! It’s getting popular that charcoal helps to improve our lives. In many ways..
What’s this you may ask? KIM CHI ICE CREAM! It sounds odd, taste odd (to me) but it’s the most popular dessert in Da On. Try it once at least. Don’t like it, ditch it. But you may like it. I’m serious here.

I’ve invited V-Ki to have dinner with my mum and I at Kannichikan Yakiniku Restaurant @ Desa Sri Hartamas. Sort form for the name is KnK. Did you know there’s a lot of Japanese living there? It’s almost like a Japanese colony!! Anyway, we were having a korean/japanese style barbeque. We’ve ordered lots of raw meat and had fun grilling them on the healthy charcoal fire. You think the charcoal is bad? Well, the charcoal isn’t, I’m telling you. It gives out less smoke, burns your skin lesser (when they ‘explode’), lasts longer and has bigger fire.
When they have the red cloth banner out, it means they’re open! Well, I need to tell you this because you might think its closed because the doors are shut.
Not a really pleasant looking place, but its for health’s sake. (: Anyway, the food made me forget about how it looks.
Their alcohol range. Many weird names that even I don’t recognise except Sake.
Ain’t this pretty? The huge word printed on it meant white.
Mixed Kim Chi (RM10)
From left to right, chinese-cabbage, white radish and Cucumber Kim Chi.
The cucumber one isn’t really appetizing, the cabbage is more delicious compared to the white radish. Overall, the kim chi isn’t as spicy and sour as the ones they eat in Korea. This one is just nice for the locals like you and me.
Beef Sashimi (RM23)
YUM. Its really raw beef mixed with only the egg yolk, white radish and a squeeze of lemon. Don’t worry, only raw chicken and pork meat will harm you. Really, try this one day, it will make you go wild.
Do remember to toss them together before eating!
Korean Pan-cake (RM17)
Garlic Chives omelette. Not something I would recommend for RM17.. Its something you can cook at home. Ordering this is a big NO, NO.
BBQ Fish Fillet (RM20)
Saba Fish that is marinated with only salt and pepper. Guess what? It’s the juciest piece of fish I’ve ever eaten!! Especially with a little bit of lemon. OMG. Fantastic. It’s just how you’d like to enjoy a grilled fish. Note, this isn’t oily.
Sliced Roasted Beef (RM23)
Absolutely lovely. Don’t you just love juicy beef that is slightly cooked and raw at the middle? Well, I love it. Sliced white radish are hiding under the beef along with the white radish sauce on top.
Chili Lamb Rack (RM23)
I didn’t notice the chilli.. But its hell good.
For the meat, do dip them in the soy sauce on your table. Yum yum.
Premium Wagyu Shortrib (RM58)
Now, since its raw, and you’re the one doing the grilling.. You can try it rare, medium rare or well done. Best thing is if you try them all. If you don’t know how to grill, ask the waiters or waitresses!
Look at those beauties.. Aren’t they making you drool?
Squid (RM18), Scallop (RM18), King Prawn (RM23)
The squid isn’t worth the money but the scallop.. Oh yeah.. The scallop. JUICY. YUMMY. DELICIOUS. What other gorgeous words would you like me to use to make you try them? (: I didn’t try the king prawn.. There were only 2. Do squeeze lemon on them before you consume them!
The lucky thing for me and V-Ki was that we didn’t need to grill the food. The owner did them for us willingly. We both are really grateful because we are bad at grilling it at its best temperature.
Japan Kuroge Wagyu Shortrib (RM97)
The ultimate premium beef you can find here. How do they taste? Stunning. Especially when they’re rare. OH MY. Just so yummy, it makes me drool when I think of them.
The come with capsicum and melon as well. (: Note: If you haven’t tried grilled capsicum, TRY THEM.
Curry Udon Noodles (RM20)
Not really spicy.. At least, for me. I dipped them into the soup because of my awful sore throat. Its getting worse because I didn’t listen to my boyfriend. YES, sorry boss.. ):
Rice with Korean Vegetables (RM20)
Served in a stone bowl. Literally. Caution, the bowl is extremely hot. Don’t even touch the table after you move its position. I had the bad experience. ): Well, after mixing the rice with a little chilli sauce, the owner distributed some to us. I tried it. A bit like the claypot chicken rice? Except this one isn’t chicken rice, it’s fried rice with vegetables. Oh my, suddenly I’m craving for claypot chicken rice. Teehee.
