Experience All Things Korea in Malaysia @ SS15 Courtyard Chuseok Festival

I'm a "Koreaboo" who enjoy all things about Korean.
Whether it is Korean BBQ, spicy instant noodles, kimchi, spicy rice cakes, or Korean soju, I just can't resist myself from having them at least once a week.
I also watch K-dramas, listen to K-music and even go for the K-pop dances!
I've just finished the dance choreo of the Ddu Du Ddu Du by Blackpink last week. #hehe
If you are also a Korean big fans like me, always wanted to buy tickets to fly to Korea to shop and eat, now you can experience all things Korea in Malaysia without having fly out of the country!

Well well well!
Other than the exciting Chuseok Korean showcase, SS15 Courtyard also carries a few Korean restaurants and cafes for your Korean food fix!
For example, enjoy the latest Korean BBQ restaurant chain opened in Malaysia at Shinmapo Mapo Galmaegi, located at the Ground Floor.
So tempted to try it when I first knew about their opening outlet at The Gardens Mall.
Finally! I got to try out the Korea's No.1 BBQ!

Their Unlimited Pork Set @ RM98 (1-2 pax) and RM128 (2-4 pax) consists of pork belly, marinated pork collar, marinated pork skirt meat, spicy octopus, cheese sausage, and enoki bacon.
All of them are very good, especially the pork belly with very thick cut!

Best thing about having the Korean cuisine is to enjoy their free-flow Banchan, small side dishes that served along with the BBQ meats.

Loving the kimchi egg crust that grilled on the side of the BBQ grill pan.
This probably an extra bonus for me to drop by here again! #sogood!

Always grill the pork belly first because it's not marinated, and then followed by the others marinated meats and also the seafood.
I like the pork belly the most because of it's tender fat, crisp skin and flavour meat that have made.
Best way to enjoy the grilled meats is to wrap with lettuce, chili pepper and dip with the prepared sauce.

Also tried out their Buldogue Jjigae, a comfort food that combines with variety of ingredients such as kimchi, luncheon meat, sausages, vegetables and instant noodles.
The spicy stew is what I always craving for! :)


Volcano Fried Rice is a bomb!
Rice was cooked with kimchi and seaweed, and then surrounded with scramble egg.
The egg has a fluffy texture around the rice; the rice shaped like a mountain standing in the middle; that's why they named it as Volcano Fried Rice. :)

The food was so great at Shinmapo Mapo Galmaegi, and the dining environment is spacious and comfortable.
If Korean food is your favourite, do give them a try, and I'm sure that you are doing to like it too! :)

After a satisfying meal, head over to Hanbing Korean Dessert Cafe, located at Ground Floor for the Korean shaved ice dessert, Bingsu.
It is the most welcome summer dessert in Korea, which you can't miss out if you visit Korea.

The basic Bingsu has total three different flavours include, Green Tea Snow Ice @ RM24, Oreo Snow Ice @ RM24, and Injeolmi Snow Ice @ RM22.
That milky snow ice is super soft and fluffy that melt as soon as it hits your tongue!

Say Annyeong to the premium bingsu!
Strawberry Cheese Snow Ice @ RM28, Mango Snow Ice @ RM26 and Blueberry Cheese Snow Ice @ RM26, are surrounded finely shaved ice creamy and rich tasting of fresh fruits, either blueberries, strawberries or mangoes, and topped with vanilla ice cream. #slurp!

Besides the variety of mouth-watering Korean bingsu at the cafe, they also provides the most popular dishes, fried chicken in South Korea.
Fried chicken is perfect for anyone, no matter your age as you can eat it in deep-fried, or with different flavour seasonings.
Be sure to dive into the must-eat Korean Spicy Chicken @ RM16.80 or Korean Chicken Salad @ RM16.80 at Hanbing Korean Dessert Cafe.

Another must try Korean food is the Spicy Cheese Topokki @ RM32.80 that combined with melted cheese and spicy rice cake.
So flavourful and comforting!

My first visit at Hanbing was great!
Most of the food and dessert items that you see on the menu are suitable for sharing.
I would recommend this cozy cafe for gathering over desserts, snacks, light meals no matter the time of the day.

What's more?!
Mr. Dakgalbi, the famous Korean food trend is also available at SS15 Courtyard Lower Ground Floor.
The restaurant is specialized in dakgalbi, a type of popular Korean dish that stir-fried together with marinated chicken chunks in Korean chili paste, sliced onions, sweet potatoes, cabbages, rice cakes and ramen.
It's always a great dish to be shared among a small group of people. :)

Want a Korean-style hairdo?
You don't have to fly all the way to Korea to get it!
Check out the Korean Hair Shop, that you can find right here at SS15 Courtyard first floor.

Everything sounds so exciting, right?!
