Korean food: Bulgogi Brothers

K-Pop, Korean wave, Korean phones, Korean electricals and cars.

Korean food?

My family and I together with my parents and my brother's family had lunch at Bulgogi Brothers in Paradigm Mall recently.

I have to say that Korean food does not immediately grab my fancy.

The signature Korean dish of bibimbap? Sadly, I found it to be over-rated, unexciting and bland despite its purported chili pepper taste.

Wikipedia explains that "the word literally means "mixed rice". Bibimbap is served as a bowl of warm white rice topped with namul (sautéed and seasoned vegetables) and gochujang (chili pepper paste). A raw or fried egg and sliced meat (usually beef) are common additions. The ingredients are stirred together thoroughly just before eating.[2] It can be served either cold or hot."

There were not more than 3 thinly sliced pieces of beef in my bibimbap, and for the price of RM20 something ++, it is definitely not worth it.

My husband, my son, my dad and brother only enjoyed their lunch because they chose the barbecued beef set. That is hardly anything to jubilate over as most everyone can do an excellent and tasty barby with the right cuts of meat, yes?

My husband and I came away with the same opinion: Chinese and Japanese food are way ahead of Korean food.
