Papa…

For so many years now, we would celebrate Father’s Day a day earlier as on Sundays, we would have to make our way to my girl’s school in the jungle but of course, this year, it was different and we could celebrate the special occasion on the actual day itself.

My girl went and got me this lovely black forest cake…

…from this bakery round the corner from my house and she got me to cut it first thing in the morning and we had that for breakfast. 

After that, we went to pick my sister and we all went to our parents’ resting place…

Flowers and prayers for Father's Day

…to offer flowers and prayers to my dad especially, in conjunction with Father’s Day.

We got back into town at around 11.00 a.m. and we went for lunch at this Korean place here that we do like a lot – my girl’s special treat. Most places open at 12.00 noon and close at 2.00 p.m. and will reopen at 6.00 p.m. for dinner which makes me wonder why they bother to open for those two hours only. At least, they should open a bit early, at around 11.00 a.m. like this one and if they have to, they can close at 3.00 p.m.

We just ordered our favourites that day, dishes that we had had before and enjoyed a lot so of course, I insisted on having the galbi tang (갈비탕)…

…the Korean beef short ribs soup.

As usual, we were served the complimentary refillable ban chan (반찬)…

…and my girl wanted the gun mandu (군만두)…

…again and needless to say, the dolsot bibimbap (돌솥비빔밥)…

…too.

We also had the moksal or neck meat…

…and ate that wrapped in lettuce with garlic slices, Bombay onion, strips of spring onion with some special sauce and the spicy Korean tau cheo sauce…

Eat it this way

…and we also had this pork belly marinated with Korean red chili paste, the gochujang (고추장)…

…and ate it that same way too. I would say that it was just as nice and we sure would not mind ordering that again the next time we drop by here.

My girl insisted on picking up the tab and had to fork out over RM140.00, inclusive of drinks, for all that we had for 4 persons. If I remember correctly, the beef soup is already over RM40.00 and the two pork dishes add up to around RM50.00 but considering how much we enjoyed everything, value for money, we certainly would look forward to coming back here again. 

KIMCHEE KOREAN BAR.BQ (2.296883,111.825859) is located on the first floor in the block of shops to the right of the Old Sing Kwong Supermarket (Kin Orient Plaza) along Jalan Tun Abang Hj Openg.

  1. Though I am not into Korean cuisine, still it is a delightful lunch for papa. Of all the above, I like the “gun madu” and pork belly marinated with Korean red chilli paste provided it is not too fat and spicy.

    You have not tried the short beef ribs soup – it is so rich and flavourful! Expensive but I just can’t resist it! Must order everytime we drop by here.

  2. What a wonderful Father’s Day treat! I meant to go to the Korean restaurant nearby for some bibimbap but that would have to wait another day as I was am quite busy. But after seeing what you all had, I might pop by might soon 🙂

    My girl loves it. I’m ok with it though I would not say it is my favourite.

  3. Eh, my comment disappeared 😦

    No, it is here all right, loud and clear. How come you can’t see it? Like The Emperor’s New Clothes? LOL!!!

    1. After I posted my first comment, I did not see it here. Same with the second one. But miraculously, they are here now. LOL!

      Sounds like a delayed reaction! LOL!!! They did not even have to go through moderation!

  4. For so many tasty dishes, RM140 is a steal. Such colourful flowers to honour your late parents, so beautiful.

    Especially when we loved all that they dished out – currently, definitely one of my favourite places in town.

    My missus arranged the ones on the right herself, with those “golden showers” from my garden. Will be in my blogpost, soon…those flowers. The one on the left, my sis got from a florist here – I always go to that shop too so I am familiar with the style of floral arrangement – one post on that coming soon too!

  5. I also bought flower for my late Dad on Father’s Day.

    That’s sweet. Sad that many people move elsewhere and they do not bother to come back and visit, not even during Ching Ming or All Souls’ Day.

  6. a great father’s day lunch! here’s to many, many more to come – maybe japanese next year, or korean again? 🙂

    We just had Japanese that day so Korean it was. Italian and Indian would not open till noon so they were off the list of choices we had…and word has it that the chefs have left and the food is not so good anymore at the Thai place so that was out too.
