Ko Hyang Korean Country Delights @ Sunway Pyramid

Another Korean food which I like to highlight it out here. Among a few Korean food that I been to before, this Ko Hyang Korean Country Delights which giving me a special remembrance at my heart. I never fail to dine here when I'm craving Korean Food.

I always come here for the Sik Hae Korean Rice Tea [RM3.80]. It taste like rice tea, kind of herbal water for me.Cooling, easing dry throat especially during hot weather. I'm impressed with the services provided by crews there. Quick and faster service without waiting long. The only problem here was long queue, you just need to wait for seats.

As usual the Banchan was served to us first as we waited for our food to arrive. There were just three varieties served and we enjoyed the Kimchi tremendously. Being the most common Banchan served in every Korean restaurant I've been to, I would say that Ko Hyang's kimchi is the best I've tasted so far! We have eaten some that tend to be a tad sourish but Ko Hyang's Kim Chi was absolutely delish and the taste was spot on. Spicy and pungent enough without being too overwhelming, I guessed what made it that good was that the pickled cabbage served was smaller than usual. So, it was very flavorful.

Dot Sot Bi Bim Bap [RM17.90]

Bim Bim Bab is a signature Korean dish, and quite famous along with its presence on some popular Korean movies, dramas and shows nowadays. Dot Sot Bi Bim Bap [RM17.90] is actually Stone pot rice mixed with vegetables, chili paste and beef or chicken served with fried egg on it. The ingredients then are stirred together thoroughly just before eating. Stone keep the rice warm during winters in Korea.

Soon Dobu Ji Gae, another well known Korean stew is prepared with dubu (tofu), seafood, vegetables and gochujang with other ingredients. A raw egg is added into the bubbling broth that heightens the richness of the stew. This has been my favorite order whenever I drop by as it’s tasty and spicy sauce was appetizing and you would want them with your rice as they are perfect for each other. 

Kim Chi Ji Gae, Thick and rich kim chi stew with rice [RM13.50]

This pot of soup is a traditional Korean Kim Chi soup which is sourly in taste. Not many will know how to appreciate this lovely soup but once you are into it you will not want to let go. This pot is normally cooked with some prawns, diced tofu, chicken meat, vegetables, onions, some chives, some red pepper and soya sauce for some added taste. Pretty good indeed.

Ra Myeon [RM13.50]

Ra Myeon is a noodle with vegetables and seafood for its toping; sounds simple, but very delicious. The padded Korean noodle with red spicy soup is a great mixture. The seafood supports the taste of the noodle, while the vegetables bring the freshness of overall dish. Ra Myeon is certainly a good recommendation for the noodle lovers who want to try the uniqueness of Korean noodle. Big portion with [RM13.50] love the soup very much, can't resist to drink it again and again.

Kimchi Pancake [RM9.50]

Kimchi Pancake [RM9.50] enjoyed it too with the chili oil dip. Though it came a bit burnt on the side, it was the burnt parts that enjoyed most as that meant it was crispier than the middle part which was softer. And since those who love the Kimchi, of course this Kimchi Pancake tasted delicious.

An overall pleasant dining experience with homecooked "country" Korean food indeed. I'll definitely be back again. From the economical side, the food prices at Ko Hyang are pocket friendly. With reasonable and affordable price, you already can get the impressive menu such as drinks, soup, noodles or rice. This is certainly suitable for people who want to experience a great Korean cuisine, you can find it here in Ko Hyang
