Daorae Korean BBQ Restaurant

Went to Daorae Korean BBQ Restaurant at Dataran Sunway, Kota Damansara for dinner on Christmas Eve. Well, this wasn't the first time we experienced Korean meal and wasn't our first visit to this restaurant. Been there few times and enjoyed the food and services there very much. I always told LKC that it is the only place that I feel really worthy paying the 10% service charge. Their service is even better than any other hotels.

For the dinner, we ordered 2 BBQ sets (well, that's the minimum order for BBQ). We ordered deung-shim and mok-sal. Deung-shim is non-marinated tender and thin sliced beef rib eye, while mok-sal is non-marinated pork.

For starter, we were served with a bowl of soup each. Not sure what is the name of the soup but I felt that the soup is a bit too hot, not the boiling type of's the pepper-ish hot. LKC likes the soup very much.

As usual, we were served with different types of refillable side dishes include different type of kim chis, salad, anchovies and some vegies.

The side dishes

While we were enjoying the side dishes, the waiter barbequed the meat for us. We were taught on how to eat the bbq meat on our very first visit to the same restaurant at Taipan, USJ. First, place a "piece" of vegetable (sang choy) on your plate. Then dip the bbq meat with the sesame oil. Next scope a spoon of rice and some marinated spring onion on the vegie as well. Next, dip the barbequed garlic with the Korean teochew sauce. Finally, wrap all the ingredients with the vegie and put it into your mouth and enjoy.

The must-have for BBQ



For dessert, we were served with watermelon and a bowl of some red dates soup. The watermelon that they served is always sweet, no matter how plain the watermelon is.

Watermelon - very sweet

The overall rating for this meal was awesome. The total bill for the meal was around RM110 - RM68 for the beef and RM27 for the pork, with 5% government tax and 10% service charge.
