POCHA is a hidden gem that is kept in an unspecting shop lot in AMPANG. If you're craving for some authentic Korean food, here's the place to head. Run by an old Korean couple, it is a no-frills eatery that does not even have a proper signboard, scraps of paper on the walls, a narrow corridor, handwritten menus, and private dining rooms separated by wooden presentations. You can find common dishes here ranging from delicious Korean pancakes to teokbokki along with ramen, cold noodles and comforting soups. The restaurant's old school atmosphere makes for a very unique dining experience! Note, however, that it is known to be very difficult to get a seat, and the owners do not speak much English.
Address: No. 15, Jalan Sulaiman 3, Taman Putra Sulaiman, 68000 Ampang, Selangor
Sola Fish Market practices the same concept as the same high-end Chinese seafood restaurants that keep their marine life in the tank before cooking them fresh. But apart from the usual suspects like fish and crabs, you can find exotic octopus, abalone and spoon worm penis fish in this restaurant. And you can also find them as sashimi. Get a live octopus for the adventurous soul who yearns for a true Korean food experience. Yes, it is the same as you see on YouTube where the nets are cut but still quarrels when served. Those who cannot take raw seafood can have their dishes grilled or cooked in soups and stews. Cooked or raw, you will be able to taste the fresh seafood that is worth it.
Address: 9, Jalan Solaris 3, Solaris Mont Kiara, Kuala Lumpur
Opening hours: 5 pm - 3 am, Daily
Must try: sashimi and grilled seafood
We usually have peanuts to go with our beers but Koreans take their bar food more seriously. If you don't want to hear about CHI-MAC yet, this is a victorious combination of Korean-style fried chicken and beer. The smooth, savoury sweet and sometimes spicy flavours of the fried chicken go really well with the chilled fresh beer. CHI MAC BISTRO is one of the few fried chicken joints in Malaysia that is not part of a franchise and serves alcohol. They don't skimp on quality, because they use kampung chicken, and their marinades are imported from Korea, so you know they are legitimate. Among their 6 flavours, there is the standard Fried Chicken and Yang Yum Chicken, as well as the unexpected Bacon Spinach Chicken. Each serving comes in large quantities, but is not a problem when it is shared among drinking buddies. Their chicken is all deep fried before being tossed into the sauce to retain it in the crunch.
Address: J-OG-15 Soho KL Solaris Mont Kiara, Kuala Lumpur
Opening Hours: 3 pm - 3 am, Daily
Must try: classic pairing of fried chicken & beer
