For those of you who do not know what dakgalbi is, it is a popular Korean dish generally made by stir-frying marinated diced chicken in a gochujang based sauce, and sliced cabbage, sweet potato, scallions, onions, perilla leaves, and tteok together on a hot plate.

Original Dakgalbi - RM20

You can choose from an array of toppings apart from the original flavour with an additional RM5 (which makes it RM25)- octopus, kimchi or cheese. There's also a spicier version for an additional RM5 (excluding toppings).

This is the original dakgalbi, without additional toppings. Just deliciously marinated chicken thighs with a heap load of fresh vegetables, ready to be cooked.

Not to worry, a standard serving of dakgalbi also comes with a range of complimentary Korean side dishes. Things like lettuce, kimchi, marinated anchovies, 

This is the result as I went for the cheese topping. Apart from the rich depth of flavour from all the marination and sauces, it is also rather spicy. And this was just the original - not the spicier version. I really enjoyed having the cheese in there as well because it adds that richness and chewy texture. Pretty awesome if you'd ask me.

Haemul Pajeon - RM35

Koreans love their daily dose of pancakes. You can find similar dish in almost any Korean restaurant. Having one here at Asa Dakgalbi wasn't too bad either. The pancake was light and fluffy, but not the thinnest I've had. It was decent in flavour but certainly worked a whole lot better with the spiced soy-sauce provided.

Boneless Chicken Balls

I may not know the Korean name for these amazing balls but it was surprisingly addictive to eat. It comes in two flavours - original and spicy, with a side of fries and some lettuce. The chicken balls are all boneless, so popping one entire ball in your mouth was certainly fun to eat. It was also tender and crisp, while packing in a good amount of flavour. 

Korean feast!

All and all, Asa Dakgalbi proves to be one of the better Korean restaurant that offers an array of delicious dakgalbi. Not only is the sauce a whole lot more flavourful, the portion and pricing is extremely reasonable as well. There are also a good amount of addictive sides to compliment the dakgalbi, along with toppings that really matters. 

So if you're looking for a place to host a party, or perhaps celebrate an occasion, do head over to Asa Dakgalbi today!
