The day before I went with my parents to their stall in the morning market, I was tasked with grabbing some ingredients in the supermarket.
It was a Saturday, and the sister has been yapping about an awesome Korean BBQ place that she has been frequenting every week, so I dragged her along and we ended up having dinner at this awesome place after the supermarket run.
Duk Soo Ne BBQ is located in Ampang’s Koreatown. I think it is now called Ampang K Street. I say Ampang’s Koreatown because these days, it is not the only Koreatown in KL. There’s one in Mont Kiara/Dutamas area too.
Anyway, the reason I decided to come here, awesome restaurant aside, is because they are currently doing a All-You-Can-Eat BBQ buffet promotion. And it isn’t those typical buffet where you get food from the buffet line. No… for RM 29.90++ (less than US$ 10) per person, you get to choose between 7 types of meats (6 types of pork in different cuts and marinades, and 1 chicken).
You place your order, and the server brings the raw meat to your table to BBQ on the spot, and you eat, and you order again. Repeat the process again, and again, and again, and again, and again, until you’re full and bursting on the seams.
They say “limited to 2 hours dining time”, but we were there from 6 PM till 8.30 PM and not once did anyone come to kick us out, so I guess they don’t really enforce this T&C.
Also their charges for juniors are a bit confusing. On one hand they say “Child RM 19.90++”, on the other hand they say “Additional charge of RM 10 per son or wastage food”.
RM 10 for son, RM 19.90++ for daughter? How ridiculous. I would’ve thought boys would normally eat more than girls. Maybe Submerryn and Princess Ribbon could bring their families here, seeing their kids are all sons. By the way, I’m being sarcastic. You guys know that, right?
I don’t know how long this buffet deal will be around. The banner said it is an anniversary promotion, but there was no date specified. Maybe their promotion lasts all year long. 🙄
Come, let’s show you the main event: the food…
Closer look… wooo…
Now, at this point of time, I know you would be expecting me to unload a barrage of photos with meats and meats and meats and more meats for you viewing enjoyments. And I know I should be doing that.
Unfortunately, the sight of barbecued meats was too much for me to handle. I ended up stuffing my face silly for the next two and a half hours. Between me and my sister, we consumed probably 12 or 14 portions of meats.
The only time I remembered to take photos during the meat booze session was when this was cooking…
I don’t know what marinade this was. They have like 4 different cuts of un-marinated pork, a brown sauce marinated pork, a red sauce marinated pork, and a chicken. This one was the red sauce one, and it was the least enjoyable one. I don’t know how the chicken tastes because we ignored the chicken altogether. Everything else was nice.
Actually I don’t know what else to say about this place. There’s nothing else to say anyway, I reckon. Come here if you are a pork lover. Or a Korean food lover. Or better still, both. Super value for money.
Oh, right. There’s another thing. All throughout dinner, I heard much more Korean than Chinese being spoken by customers from the other tables. Always a good sign, that. Right?
