Of random lunch at Uncle Jang Korean Restaurant

The day before me and BenDan went to have lunch at Uncle Jang Korean Restaurant, we were talking about this newly open restaurant with colleagues and I never thought that we will be here that soon after the talk. My first try Dak Galbi is at Chun Cheon and I thought I wouldn't try it again, not to say that it's not nice but the big portion and the sweaty environment make me back off. Then, this BenDan suddenly thought to try new food (yeah, he didn't follow our sister outing that day) and the first choice is Dak Galbi! Since I went to Chun Cheon before, so we decided to go Uncle Jang (evil smile on my face, laugh).
We didn't made any reservation on the day we went, too sudden. The interior doesn't give me the kind of whoa feeling, quite simple and the ventilation is not pretty good. They even bring some giant fans like those available in hawker stall to place in the restaurant, purpose is of course to cool down the environment but the fans do not help much. I sat next to the fan, so it keep blowing on my hair until I just tied my hair up; BenDan didn't sat nearby the fan felt pretty hot throughout the eating session. Apron is provided to prevent the sauce from spurting on your clothes, you can take it off once the staff done the cooking.
Like what commented by the others, they have limited choices in the menu; you got the wrong place if you think to have other main dishes here (they do have 5-6 a la carte dish). Free cold drink is available upon your order. The only banchan (side dishes that normally served when you are in Korean restaurant) that provided by Uncle Jang is kimchi, the taste is superb by the way.
Kimchi Jeon | RM12
The only side dish we ordered as we scared that we can't finish the Dak Galbi. Don't judge a book by its cover, same over here, the kimchi pancake doesn't look great but it actually taste quite good tho. Too bad they didn't provide any sauce to dip with.
Dak Galbi | RM21/pax, minimum order of 2 pax
The Dak Galbi consists of chicken cube, cabbage, sweet potato and rice cake. It looks rather small portion compare to the one in Chun Cheon, but it is more than enough for two of us, we can't find any chicken cube when they first serve it, then we just realized that they are underneath the cabbage. We add-on ramen (RM6), egg (RM1) and cheese (RM8) to enhance the taste of Dak Galbi. I once thought Dak Galbi is just a normal dish that I wouldn't fall for it but this prove me wrong, we both like the taste and I personally feel that this is way better than the one in Chun Cheon, mainly because of the sauce I guess. After the meal, we straight away decide that we are going to visit Uncle Jang again within 2 months. Laugh.

终于又要继续PO我的合艾之旅啦,有点抱歉的是我拖了这样久还是没能把它完成(大概有半年了吧,呵呵)。续在水上市场找吃后,我和笨蛋决定回到旅店休息一下,感觉自己不敌年轻时候的我(其实还是很年轻的说),对我们来说旅行时应该要有适当的休息才能让自己玩得更尽兴,旅行就是要放轻松看世界,而不是累垮了身子啊。看完了一部卡通片(好吧,我们是老小孩)又往Lee Garden那出发去。

就2天的行程都拖了半年,我在想今年年尾一个礼拜的曼谷之旅会拖到几时啊。| 摇头 |

Birthday Celebration at Spoon Cafe . G Hotel Kelawai

I'm kinda MIA for almost 2 months now, was really no mood to face the screen after my work so I neglected here which I shouldn't be. Glad that I willing to face the screen now on this day to make my blog alive again. Let's talk about the month I love the most throughout the year, April. Normally people will love their birthday month than others, I love December too as it means the year is going to renew again, we can finally forget anything bad that happen (if any) and start our aim again. Hmmm. 
Chinese red eggs that cooked/made by mum, surely will get it in pairs each year and I share them with BenDan this year. I never throw out a party on my birthday as I know this is the day where my mum suffered a lot to get me out; so what we did were to have dinner together with my parents and I celebrated my birthday together with my dad's as we are just 5 days different in the month. 
As of my love, he brought me to have dinner at Spoon Cafe that located inside G Hotel Kelawai, and this property is just newly open I think early of this year. This was actually a surprise for me but I don't know why I always get the hunch on what he is up to, so no surprise for me this year (but the birthday pressie is really a surprise for me tho) but we are okay with it, we are the kind of couple that don't really enjoy big surprise. Thank you BenDan for the dinner!
We made our reservation 2 weeks before my birthday, and we found out that diners on that night were not much maybe because of this place is still new. The good thing about less diners was the waiter let us choose where we want to be seated, so we got our seats next to the French window and got ourselves the rainy nightview during dinner. 
Forgive me that I didn't mention that Spoon Cafe served buffet dinner (and brunch buffet only on Sunday) and the theme on that day was Latino Night Buffet Dinner which I don't see the theme anymore in their website. They changed the theme somehow, but still I think this is no harm, all you need to do is call for reservation and ask for the theme if you really care. The dishware in Spoon Cafe is in bronze-like, which is quite surprise me and the whole environment is mainly in earth color which I feel so cool to me. Plain ice or warm water is served and you may add on RM45 per person to get free-flow of house beer or wine, other beverages are chargeable as well. 
Almost same like other buffet dinners, they do have several corners for you to stuff your stomach, I remembered that the dessert corner is the place I went the least. They do have chocolate fondue that you will scream out loud if you are chocolate lover. I love the way they 'store' their main dishes with heavy ceramic cover which I found in nowhere. Barbecue corner is available too but too bad the choices for you to pick are limited, I guess it is because of the theme. 
I got myself the mushroom clear soup which I found it quite special, but I only finished the diced mushrooms and chickens as I need extra space for the food instead of the clear soup. Some dishes that I love the most that night are roasted duck slices (this is heavenly good), pan grilled fish with tomato salsa, honey roasted potatoes (I always have a thing with potatoes) and the Gambas Pil Pil (prawns that cooked with chilli and garlic). Overall, it is quite good and the service are great as well; the waiter gave us 20% discount that night due to the newly opening I guess.
