Woo Ga Chon – Korean BBQ Restaurant – Ampang

April 14, 2009 – 5:24 pm - 24,046 views

One thing I love but don’t have regularly enough is Korean BBQ, I wish there was a decent Korean BBQ nearer to my place but sadly they are all still clustered around Ampang. I’ve heard there are some decent ones elsewhere (like Hartamas), but really if you’re gonna go – go for the best one right!

There are ‘higher class’ and more expensive Korean restaurants in Ampang than Woo Ga Chon – but I like the simplicity of this place and it’s cheaper than the rest (and still good!). Plus their pork is fantastic and the Bulgogi and Bibimbap is nice too.

The sign board is as nice and big and bright so it shouldn’t be too hard to find, it’s at the other side from the 7-11 (Ampang Hilir) and you there’s always ample parking there.

The interior is nice and clean and simple, they have both kinds of seating with the Korean floor seating and the western table and chair arrangement.

As with most Korean restaurants you get a free flow of sidedishes (mostly varieties of kimchi) some of which are great, some of which are not so great (depending on your taste). 2 of my favourites are the claypot egg thing and the kimchi soup.

When you have the side dishes and your salad + condiments it’s time to get the meat on the BBQ! We usually go for pork as it’s delicious, maybe 2 pork (Dae Ji Gal Bi & Mok Deung Sim) and a beef. The pork is about Rm20-27 per portion, the beef slightly more.

One of my favourite things to eat at Korean restaurants is Bibimbap, something like the Korean version of claypot rice. The Bibimbap at Woo Ga Chon is very good, it has a nice crisp layer of rice on the outside and plenty of ingredients to get it nice and sticky and tasty.

My number 1 favourite thing to eat is Bulgogi and steaming hot white rice! The Bulgogi here comes as a single person portion along with a bowl of rice, good to order one for sharing with some other things.

Here’s the meat ready for consumption, dip it in the sauce, wrap it in a lettuce leaf with some kimchi and you’re ready to go!

We’d definitely go back to Woo Ga Chon even though it’s changed owners the quality is still great and you’ll quite often see Korean people dining there so the authenticity is pretty good. Expect to pay about RM20-30 per person for a satisfying meal (without alcohol).

We give it a We Ate This 7/10.

  13. Just went there yesterday with my family to celebrate my sister’s birthday and really enjoyed the food and our time there. I’ve been to a few Korean restaurants in Puchong, Hartamas and Ampang, this one tops it all with it’s varieties and quality of food.

    The price is really affordable, 6 person totalling RM155 comprising 3 BBQ dishes, 3 other main dishes.
