Load up on protein at Seo Gung Korean BBQ

Annyeonghaseyo! In recent years, I’ve become a bit of a fan of Korean food and am always on the lookout for a good deal for BBQ.

As a belated birthday dinner for No. 1, we made a visit to Seo Gung Korean BBQ. The restaurant has been around for more than two years in its present location in Damansara Utama but we only discovered this place late last year.

Given its price tag, it’s probably one of the best Korean buffet deals in town. Even the soju and other similar brew are very reasonably priced.

This was better second time round as well. First time, you’re not sure what to expect and when you go the next, it’s always good to see if the food quality has been maintained.

For RM33, you get unlimited refill of meat – an assortment of chicken and pork – (and one small dish of octopus) and the buffet includes some 9 types of banchan, Korean pancake and steamed egg as well as kimchi jiggae! In KL/PJ, where to find this kind of deal, right?!

The only catch is, the meal must be finished within 1 hour and 30 mins. It sounds like too short a time but surprisingly, it’s quite doable.

And you would want to load up on the protein since it is free flow, right? But you know what? We only had a second refill, plus two other small plates of pork, even though there were four of us. And this despite having 3 men at the table who have healthy appetites!

Firstly, it takes a while for the raw meat to cook, and secondly, by the time you eat all the side dishes, you’re already half full already!

I knew this already so I made a point to go slow with the carbo-based banchan, but even then, my tummy could only put in that much.

Maybe, you can do better?
