Mu Jin Jang Korean BBQ Restaurant – Jalan Ampang

I found another place I took my Mom whilst she was here, the pictures hidden away on my phone (which I haven’t blogged about yet)..

Mu Jin Jang, Korean BBQ Restaurant around Jalan Ampang, I know a bloggers Mom owns one of these restaurants but I couldn’t get hold of anyone that knew which one it was, and the one I normally go to was closed so were quite a lot of others (Must be Korean day off?), so I picked this one at random.

Mu Jin Jan Korean Restaurant

I ordered some beef as usual (rib eye I think), which used to be tender sweet melt in the mouth a few years ago…a marinated beef dish and some pork, of course the freeflow Kimchi came flooding in, just how I like it!

BBQ Beef

The waitress of course cooked it all to perfection right in front of us, on the BBQ in the middle of table.

Brown Beef

The beef rib and pork was then sliced into bite sized chunks for our consumption. I must say the beef was a bit chewy and not all that great..yeah not like the olden days when it melted in my mouth! The pork was very nice however.

Then out came the marinated beef dish, which started out looking like this (and was much cheaper than the not so fantastic rib-eye thingy beef).

Marinated Beef

It ended up looking like this..

And I have to say, it tasted absolutely heavenly, I would go back there for this definately and the pork. I’ll be giving the RM58 steak a miss though, I think this was about RM32 and the pork around the same.

I of course ordered some Gyoza aswell (Japanese boiled then shallow fried dumplings), I order them everywhere that sells them, I really love Gyoza. They weren’t called Gyoza of course…they had some Korean name.

These were pretty good.

Korean Gyoza

Yeah, we killed it all!

No more Korean Food

A very hearty meal enjoyed by all, I would go there again (just skip the expensive assed beef and digg down on the marinated beef and a couple of slabs of pork yeah babeh!).

I took Mom for a walk around Bukit Bintang and to Petaling Street after that, but it was already closing up so we just passed it by and headed home. No pics of that as I didn’t have my camera and the phone doesn’t take good pictures in low light conditions because of the small sensor.

    I believe the blogger you’re talking about whose her mom owns a Korean BBQ restaurant is Hayanna?

    Prefer the cheap and nasty do it yourself Korean bbqs in Singapore. More fun, it’s buffet so you get way more meat. and it’s like 10-15 bucks sing.

    looks great. the one we went has a cheaper setting and cheaper food, with less items to choose from tho.

    Lets eat there sometimes..

    Cow: I know which restaurant you are talking about. IMHO, these two restaurant cannot be compared side by side. Can you compare the burger from McDonald’s and with TGI Fridays? A true korean dinning comprises a lot more than a simple BBQ.

    ST: There are a lot of Korean restaurant near Ampang Point area. Not around there, but across the Jalan Ampang. The bulgogi (Soupy BBQ Beef) looks heavenly. However, the price they’ve charged you seemed a little steep.

    Perhaps, perhaps when there’s chance, can bring you to my favorite joint. Somewhere near there too. Their cooking is a little home cooking like.
