Ko Hyang

In search of Korean cuisine, we stumbled upon Ko Hyang Korean Country Delights (고향) at Setia City Mall. "Ko Hyang" means hometown in Korean. The name reflects the restaurant's focus on Korean home-cooked food.
We start our meal with some drinks. Shik Hae (식혜, RM4.00) is a traditional Korean beverage prepared from barley and rice. The drink has a distinctive malty aroma, but I think it is way too sweet for me.
Our first dish is Kim Chi Ji Gae (김치찌개, RM17.50). The appetizing stew is infused with sour and spicy flavors of kimchi (fermented cabbage). The stew also contains sausages, tofu, onions and scallions.
Next, Dol Sot Bi Bim Bab (돌솥비빔밥, RM19.50) is a rice dish topped with minced chicken, vegetables, fried egg and gochujang (고추장). The ingredients are served in a hot stone pot that gives the dish a finishing touch. The taste is balanced overall.
Chicken BBQ (닭불고기, RM19.50) is seasoned with a special sauce, and then grilled to medium well. The chicken is marinated perfectly; it is succulent to the last morsel. This dish is traditionally eaten with lettuce, garlic and ssamjang (쌈장).
At Ko Hyang, each dish comes with several side dishes (반찬) and seaweed soup (미역국). Although the restaurant is operated by ethnic Koreans, the recipes are adapted to the local palate.
