Yesterday, my friend and I were looking around for a Korean BBQ Restaurant for dinner together since we both haven't really tried Korean food before soo we were actually targeting a visit to

DAORAE Korean BBQ Restaurant

Selfie in car otw :p 

The Daorae Korean BBQ Restaurant we went to was @ SOHO KL, which was located at the slide opposite row of Uncle Jang, which was located at the same row as Maybank at the corner of the shops. DAORAE Korean BBQ Restaurant has a signboard was very bright & unmissable, you'll get attracted to the interior designs through their clear windows too on the second floor of the building. There's a lift inside but I would recommend taking the stairs since my friend and I did and we were faster than the lift, yay for long legs? hehehe 

View from outside ~

these are mostly "human living" ~ getit?

The corner tables & decos from my table

The entrance is at the right, can see the man in black shirt? >>>> one
& spot my beige coloured flat at the shoe rack! I actually took it out on the floor before going to my table but out of the blue when I was taking photos of this restaurant,
 I noticed it was on the shoe rack, now I know my shoes have its own legs..
 or angelic wings *-*

front view from my seat, yupe there's a flat screen TV there playing korean shows 
All the stars who've paid Daorae a visit, there you can see PSY, Lee Min Ho & I think that's SHinee at the bottom left, if I'm wrong please do correct me in the comments box, I ain't no kpop fan :x

The setting of the table~ 

Free salad for both of us as starting
The sauce was really unique until we couldn't tell what was in it LOL 
it was sweet & sour, like mango & I don't know what.. hmm.
 go try it out yourself and let me know what does it tastes like to you 

^ Here you're looking at the Korean side dishes which was free of charge and REFILLABLE!

We didn't refill it thou... you'll know why at the end of this post. 

Free Korean pancake

We took our orders and the food came not long later~ 

I forgot what was this dish called, but it was filled with very yummy things but SUPER SPICY
This was my friend's favourite dish of the day because my friend looooves rice cakes, the right picture is one of the staffs there whom I think is korean, helping us the cut the egg without our request nice, you see how nice the service is, no lie u leh!!

Hanjung Sal 梅花肉 RM 38
It's sliced pork Jowls with sesame oil sauce
I know how this might look spicy to you but it was strangely not at all spicy. 
IN FACT, the smell & taste of it will keep you wanting it more and more, that's why it's the my favourite dish that day :D Really worth trying one! no lies!!

 순두부 찌개 Soon-dubu-jjigae RM26
Let's face it who would understand what's ^. It's spicy tofu stew which consists of tofu, pork belly, clams, egg, vege and more. The soup was rich and spicy, so appetizing! I love this one a lot too. The tofu was just so smooothhh it's like I was eating a baby's butt! 

Steamed Rice
We ordered only one steamed rice only coz another dish was served with rice jor, so yea, not bad if you like sticky rice. It's opposite of Japanese rice, can imagine? 

BiBimBap RM22
This was the dish that came with rice, it's actually like fried rice like that, I mean the concept, not the taste. You just stir it yourself and there you have your korean fried rice? I don't know hahaha but it wasn't that pleasant to my friend or me, not really recommended. 
That's all that we ordered that day, 
OH WAIT!!! before I miss this out in the post, 
I wanna tell you another point on how good their service was!!
when we were leaving, coz paiseh leh already passed their business hour, yeah it was after 11pm( we went at 10pm) and we were the last customer there but they even asked us not to rush, but asked us to man man chiak with super good manners & a smiley face ^_^ the staff only you know this! I don't think the boss was around, there's only one guy who speaks more fluent English at the cashier counter quite far away from our table was there. See, people without boss around also so polite, you leh jkjk. 

Then right, we insisted to leave coz really late liao ma, before we left to the door, the manager look-a-like asked us to please stay coz they're serving the dessert which we have no idea of! 
My friend & I went to the toilet and when we came out, pieces of oranges & watermelons cut nicely with a cup of Sikhye( a traditional sweet korean rice beverage, most of the time served as dessert) each with peach content I think coz that's what my friend said he tasted. 

The total amount was RM127 for 2 person, quite pricey but definitely worth it. 
Sadly we didn't manage to finish the food and check out the leftovers....
So wasted right? but what to do... we only have a stomach each and we were rushing to Setia Alam to watch 47 Ronin, midnight show~

The manager even gave us each a lollipop which was sooo nice of him! 
The customer service of this branch really made our day =) 

This Daorae branch at SOHO KL is definitely worth paying many many visits! The service was so gooood & the food tasted really *thumbs up*. I would give this restaurant full stars, how many you want to make it I also will colour it all bright yellow hehehe. You can book private rooms with minimum 10person =)
& oh there there's a selfie to end this post with teehee thank you for reading!
