Koreans are always proud with their Yangnyeom Tongdak, Bibimbap, Kimchi and Barbecue Meat. However, most Korean food are spicy and hot. Korean barbecue is no exception as well as most of the barbecue options are hot and spicy. Although Korean food is spicy, yet the sourness and slight saltiness made the Korean dishes so appetizing.
One of the great places that you can look out for great Korean BBQ with affordable price is at KO.B.Q. It is not hard to locate this place, if you know how to go to Precinct 10 in Penang, you will see KO.B.Q. is just on the right side of the shops, next to Oldtown White Coffee.
KO.B.Q is now doing promotion at Groupon RM72 for a Korean BBQ and Kimchi Hot Pot Meal for 4 People (original worth RM163.20). It is very reasonable and value for money. This offer is only available for a limited time.
The place will be packed with people especially during weekends. Therefore, make sure you call in for the reservation to avoid disappointment.
For those who love Korean barbecue and yet afraid of the oiliness or the smoke, have no fear. Each of the table is equipped with extendible exhaust fan.
The barbecue pork marination comes in 2 flavours. The spicy and non-spicy version. The marination was nice even after barbecued, the aroma was still strong. The tenderness of the meat was just right too, each meat slice has been carefully selected with the right lean and fat ratio.
Besides the serving of barbecue, there were also 4 refillable side dishes and a kimchi hot pot.
The serving of the hotpot main ingredients included kimchi, raddish, instant noddle, Enoki mushrooms, bean curds, pork meat and some spring onions.
Apart from the kimchi hot pot, there is also “Jeon” (Korean pancake)
The soft yet slight crispy pancake tasted very good with their home-mixed light soy sauce.
Overall, this Groupon deal is affordable and value for money. The ambience was nice and the best part is the all the side dishes are refillable. The parking is free at Precint 10 during lunch time.
