Kyung Joo

Budae Jigae (to share) - MYR55.80+ (10% service charge to be MYR61.40 nett). Budae means Army Unit or Military Unit so this is a Army Stew that has US style processed food such as sausages, spam (luncheon meat), slices of cheese, instant noodles and etc. A very flavourful jigae.

The Banchan (side dishes) are very different from the ones served here except for the kimchi which is a must-have side dish. There are six refillable side dishes - 1. broccoli, cauliflower and carrots 2. kimchi 3. brinjal and chili 4. pumpkin 5. black beans 6. radish cubes. All side dishes are tasty.

We ordered two bibimbap (chicken meat) sets (with a glass of green tea or barley tea) to share. MYR17.80+ (MYR19.60 nett).

After mixing everything up. My friend would prefer it to be more flavourful but the taste is ok for me.

4 Mandu (in Korean, gyoza in Japanese) to share as well. Costs MYR11.80+ (MYR13 nett). The dumplings are plump with lots of fillings.

A pot of hot barley tea at MYR9.80+ (MYR10.80 nett) meant to be shared by 2 pax but there were 5 of us with 2 glasses of hot green tea from the 2 bibimbap sets so the waitress was smart enough to bring us 3 small glasses without us having to ask for it.

It has a double layer of glass with air in between for insulation so that your hand can hold the glass and will not feel the heat from the hot tea.

5 pretty swirl bowls for us since we are sharing all the food. 

MYR124.30 nett for 5 pax so it means that it is MYR24.85 nett per pax. Reasonable price considering how full we were after this meal.

This Kyung Joo Korean Restaurant is located on the highest floor in Midvalley Mall, near the cinemas. It is next to Taiwan Recipe.

    1. if you have kimchi can cook at home since mostly using processed food like sausages and luncheon meat.
