Just down the road from Jal Dae Ji in KL’s Korean quarter is Duk Soo Ne. This is also a Korean barbecue restaurant, with the added extra of ‘all-you-can-eat’ meat for just under RM40 per person after the recently reintroduced tax and service charge.

Interior, Duk Soo Ne, Kuala Lumpur

The interior is bright, and the staff were friendly and effective. Amazingly the Bangladeshi workers were fluent in Chinese and Malay, and seemed proficient in Korean. Very impressive.

Noodles, Duk Soo Ne, Kuala Lumpur

Vegetarian choice is limited, as expected, but our waiter showed all the dishes which were or could be made meat/fish free. I had Jjapageti, which was noodles in a black bean and sweet onion sauce. Very rich sweet and savoury flavour.

Pancake, Duk Soo Ne, Kuala Lumpur

We shared a kimchi jeon, a thicker than normal pancake with lots of onion and a little kimchi. Pretty good.

Meat, Duk Soo Ne, Kuala Lumpur

Wife went for the buffet. She tasted four meats over the evening: thick pork belly (she liked it), thin pork belly (crispier, if you prefer it that way), spicy pork (a little bland, as the marinade hadn’t penetrated the meat, and pear-marinated beef (unusual, slightly sweet and sour, she approved).

Dishes, Duk Soo Ne, Kuala Lumpur

This was served with the usual large selection of refillable dishes, including plain soup, pickled radish (delicious and refreshing), spiced vegetables, and others – of course including kimchi.

Cherry, Duk Soo Ne, Kuala Lumpur

I have to mention the drink I had. Soju is a very common alcoholic drink in Korea, I’m informed, and they like different flavours of it. I ordered a cherry soju, expecting a small glass, but the money delivered a carafe! Anyway, it was strongly flavoured with cherry, easy to drink, and it’s a good thing I didn’t have to drive home…

Cooking meat, Duk Soo Ne, Kuala Lumpur

We had a enjoyable time here, and it was reasonably priced too in comparison with other Korean restaurants. Our favourite so far in Koreatown.
