Kims Korean Food Penang

My friend took us to eat Korean food when we were in Penang.

Kim's Restaurant at Arena Curve, Bayan Baru


We ordered 4 main dishes for 4 pax and were given the following side dishes (Banchan) which are refillable except for the corns in cheese. The table is made of wood but the spot where the corns in the hotplate is placed is heated by an induction stove underneath the table.

Corns in Cheese in Hotplate - Non refillable.

Deep fried anchovies and nuts - is slightly sweet and also salty. More salty than sweet.

Mashed potatoes which we asked for refills.

Kimchi

Pickled vegetable

Amaranth Green (Yin Choy). I prefer them to be softer.

Watermelon slices on the house (Foc)

Location of the Kim's Restaurant

Cold water is provided on the house too (foc). The main dishes will be in the subsequent posts. Do stay tune.

  1. Korean cuisine is a good change sometimes. Healthy and interesting. I am still not a big fan of kim chi though.

  2. Not into kim chi nor Korean all that much. My Penang friend went to this one on his birthday: https://www.facebook.com/jinggodakgalbi/?pnref=story - he did not enjoy it.

    1. Jinggodakgalbi is nearby this place. I find Korean food very similar to Chinese food so I am ok with it.

  5. I love Korean food. I was lucky to sample authentic Korean food cooked either onsite by a Korean chef (including wild greens from the mountain) and catered for at events. It sure was different from the ones in restaurants. Their kimchi was so good unlike the ones in the shop where it was too salty.

    1. If you eat too much of this then you won't have space in your stomach for the main dish.
