The newly opened Daorea Korean BBQ at De Garden has got the charm to attract quite a good crowd. Perhaps is new , lots of people want to check out this place, it was quite crowded on a weekday dinner at Daorea yesterday.
We ALSO joined the bandwagon to check out this famous brand that already well established in the Klang Valley and Penang.
The ambiance is good, service is tip top and food is definetely far better than other so called Korean food in Ipoh. Of course, with all these "plus points" the price is also on the higher side.
This is how the restaurant look like....
The starters, a really good variety they are offering!
Then comes the 2 BBQ dishes we ordered, one special pork and another marinated chicken. Both were good!!! The pork is not marinated, but texture is very tender,whereas the marinated chicken taste really good with the nicely marinated sauce.
Look at the before and after photo of special pork being BBQed.....it will be completed to wrap the pork that dipped with BBQ sauce, special sauce, a piece of garlic and onion with a slice of vege....superb!
In between, the boss came with a plate of complimentary Korean pancake. Perhaps its because its newly opened promotion, good good, I love the pancake.
The meal never ends here, we also ordered a Kimchi hotpot to try. Lots of vege, some pork slice, little hot as well.
This is all cooked, only the noodle is uncooked, which they add it later...
Overall the food was up to our expectation, but later we found that we were rather thirsty, was it the sauce? or kimchi soup? not sure whether there is high MSG?? Anyway, is happy that at least now there is more quality restaurant around Ipoh, better variety for Ipohian to check out!
