Korea House , SS2 Petaling Jaya

After posting on Daniel Henney, I'm still thinking of him and hence decided to post on the quick Korean lunch I had with Glorious Jade. We had a few errands to run and could only do a quick lunch and since we were in SS2 area, we decided to go for the set lunch at Korea House. They have several set lunches but we usually settle for the Bulgogi set which is priced at a reasonable RM9.90++(USD3).
Korea House SS2

Bulgogi set lunch

Kim Chi
Of course at such a price, one does not get the regular serving of Banchan (small side dishes) but instead about 4 varieties (as compared to the usual 8 or 10 varieties) are served in a lunch box together with the Bulgogi and steamed rice in the usual metal bowl. The set also comes with a bowl of seaweed soup and slices of watermelon.
The Bulgogi is cooked differently if it's the set lunch (unlike the usual Bulgogi I have for dinner). At such a price, the portion is still quite a lot albeit it has added cabbage apart from the usual onions to make up the volume. The beef is thinly sliced, tender and well marinated with soy sauce and sugar. The set will definitely fill you up. For those who would like to try cooking this at home, click HERE for the recipe.
Christmas Tree Watermelon
So cute, the watermelon in a shape of a Christmas tree.
Kimchi Chigae
Once in awhile, we'll order the Kimchi Chigae. It comes piping hot, it's good stuff but I still prefer the Kimchi Chigae from Haeun Khon located on the 3rd Floor of Amcorp Mall. Haeun Khon is usually where I head to when I'm craving for Kimchi Chigae.

If you're around SS2 during lunch hour, do drop by and try out Korea House's reasonable set lunches. They also serve the usual Korean BBQ fare. The Korean lady boss is really friendly, greeting customers with a big smile and always say the same thing to me each time I'm there "Long time no see you!". Hahaha...service is good too ;o).

Hmm. If I go there tomorrow for my lunch, will the lady boss greet me with "Long time no see you!" too? When we haven't met before? Or will she replace it with a "Who in the world are you?"


"But do come in, have you some Korean, good for you!"

Oh I bet it is... ;)

team bsg said...

Judy said...

The first time I tried Korean was at Sunway. Was not impressed. Maybe it was the wrong place to go for my first Korean!

I have yet to taste Henney to see if I like it....oops him! :P

ekeng said...

very affordable...suitable for me la..hehehe :)

tigerfish said...

The chigae looks piping hot! I wish for one now!

vkeong said...

I'd love to try but I am very afraid..

I've gotten sick twice from eating Korean food, TWICE also!! Once from Seoul Garden BBQ, another time from the imported Korean instant noodles..

Seems like I am destined to not being able to enjoy Korean food lol

wmw said...

judy : I can vouch that you will surely like Henney!

ekeng : Hehehe...go try. Found out only available on weekdays.

tigerfish : Yes, hot stuff, good stuff!

vkeong : Looks like you are allergic to Korean food!

"Joe" who is constantly craving said...

wmw said...

Joe : Nowadays only fancy places for you? No more alley ways? Hehehe...

JOjo said...

wmw said...

Did you check out the rest of my posts on Henney??? Anyway, it's always such a steal for you all to come over here and eat!

sussex exile said...

This seems old I guess?? im a regular in this restaurant but recently, the lunch set contains 9 dishes and I think the food is now tastier than before. And the amazing thing is, now u can get BBQ for RM19.90!

wmw said...

Yeah, old. Haha...haven't been there for awhile. Lunch set with 9 dishes and it's price at how much? Food is nice here.

Hi all,

Thought of wanted to share out my newfound Korean Kimchi website.

I have tasted it and it tasted good and fresh, not like those in Tesco, Giant, Cold Storage. Also the price is affordable.

Try it out Authentic Korean ….
