Got my attention…

When we went to the restaurant two doors away for dinner that evening, this signboard…

Daksemari signboard

…at the Korean place got our attention.

No, I don’t think we will want to order this…

Korean army base hotpot

…seeing that the egg noodles in it would render it non-gluten free. We are not too sure if there is anything in this one…

Korean beef stew

…but this one is definitely a no-no too…

Korean seafood hotpot

…as there are noodles in it as well. We did not notice this…

Like & share for free ice cream

…that day but when we were there for lunch that afternoon…


…the girl brought it to our attention. Well, we were not all than keen on the ice cream so we did not bother about it.

Probably we could ask them to leave out the noodles but in the end, we did not feel like having any of the above as the servings looked so huge – a lot more than what the three of us could handle and we were not all that keen on such a heavy lunch. Besides, my girl wanted the beef dolsot bibimbap

…so of course, we had to order that when we dropped by that day.

These were complimentary…

On the house

…and I did like the fish cake while the peanuts and the seaweed did not quite tickle my fancy and of course, I did not touch the kim chi

…which was also on the house.

My girl wanted their Korean spicy yangnyeom fried chicken and the seafood omelette but the girl said that they got the pre-mixed ingredients from Korea and they either have wheat in them or they were not so sure so she would not recommend ordering the two.

We ordered the grilled pork belly…

…which came with cabbage for wrapping the meat and the raw garlic and whatever that black thing was – it did taste a bit of tau cheo (fermented beans).

Since we were not having the barbecue (nor the steamboat), it was done for us in the kitchen…

…and yes, it was very good. I sure enjoyed that.

My girl enjoyed the beef dolsot bibimbap

…very much and so did my missus. I thought it was all right and that’s saying a lot for someone not into anything and everything Korean.

Service was good and everybody was nice and friendly. The bill came up to over RM49.00 so I gave the girl a RM50 note and of course, I just asked her to keep the change. All in all, it was a delightful lunch and we sure would not mind dropping by again.

DAKSEMARI KOREAN BBQ (2.287332, 111.826574) is located at No. 8, Jalan Chew Geok Lin (formerly Old Street) that leads straight to the Tua Pek Kong 7-storey Pagoda Temple.

Ancient relic but very young at heart. Enjoys food and cooking...and travelling and being with friends.

  1. you have a 7-storey tua peh kong temple there?!

    Yes, I think I did blog about it before…or maybe I just mentioned it in passing – another one coming up in a few days. We do have a few temples here, not that many – Sibu is predominantly Chinese but I think, mostly Christians, Methodist a lot…if we go by the number of churches that they have.

  2. Korean bbq near me charges $40 per head. I don’t think I can eat $40 worth of food!

    Yes, me neither. Those Ramadan buffets in KL and elsewhere are worse, cashing in on the festive occasion, over RM100 per head. Such opulence, such extravagance…and they are supposed to be fasting not feasting. I guess the price tag covers all the food thrown away when nobody eats them, so sinfully wasteful.

  3. It’s been a while since my last Korean bbq and although I like the bbq I like the multiple side dishes even more.

    You do??? I’m not really into it – maybe it’s an acquired taste.
