K Pot - Korean Fusion Cuisine in Prima Tanjung, Penang
Cosy little Korean Restaurant ~ Closed on Thursday
Whenever a cuisine or a dish move to another country, there must be some modification to suit the local taste. K pot restaurant is one of them. So, many local Penangnite and even neighbourhood Korean love to visit to this restaurant. Other than that, their food quality is consistent and their customer service is good. The husband and wife owners are very lovely and friendly even though they can't speak English well.
I would say averagely colleagues and me will visit here once every month for lunch. It was firstly introduced by one my colleague which is a Korean fans. After that, most of the people we brought there love their food.
For Korean, side dish is part of the traditional food where you must know as a women or a chef. If a women can make good and many side dish, yeah you can marry this women. Not sure whether it is still applied today?
For those who can't stand the sourness of kimchi, you can try their kimchi which is less sour and more acceptable for new eater.
However as you can see from the picture, K Pot side dishes are always the same and 3 types only which are egg, broccoli and kimchi. Even though there are not much variation of side dishes, you can always refill. They are so generous to refill for you and the portion is heaps! So do let them know if you just want to refill a bit. Okay? DON'T WASTE THE FOOD especially KIMCHI and EGG.
As you can see their Sundubu Jjigae (Korean Soft Tofu Stew) is a bit different from others traditional one but I love it! The soup is more to cloudy, thick, sweet and very warm ( I am very particular with the soup, if the soup meant to be warm, please make it warm). When I first time having this, I wonder was it really a Sundubu Jjigae or something else? Anyway I adapt the taste really fast and It becomes one of my favourite lists dining here.
Beef Top Rice is another favourite list of mine. The quality and taste is not so consistent for this dish, at least it does make feel me feel satisfy most of time. Whenever I crave for beef, then I will order this. I hardly take beef since I came back from Melbourne a year ago because local Chinese culture here don't usually take beef. No wonder I always feel dizzy because low in iron. Ops excuses to eat more beef!
Kimchi Fried Rice is one of my colleague's favourite and she will only order this when she dine in in any Korean Restaurant. She is fussy in a way that she prefer simple meal. So, she will request no pork, no onion and no spring onion. Even the Korean female owner of the shop can remember hers order: Only kimchi, egg and seaweed? And how's the food look like in the picture? Without those spring onion and pork, isn't it still look delicious with yellowish sunny egg?
I do crave for Korean Pancake once in awhile. Their pancake is a bit savoury and thin. I like to dip it with the salty & sourish sauce. It used to be one of my favourite snack when catching up with friends in Korean Restaurant. I will only this when someone is willing to share with me because I couldn't finish all by my own.
You'd probably feel full having the main meal, but still feel like wanted to have something refreshing. You can go for Baby Patbingsu and share with your friends. It is a ice shaving dessert top with red bean, fruits, condensed milk, nuts etc. Similar like our Malaysian ice kacang. This is definitely not as good compare to those commercial one such as Caffe Bene in Gurney Paragon. No harm to give it a try. You may like it!
