Ampang is an area long known for its large number of Korean expatriates and Korean barbecue restaurants. Woo Ga Chon is just one of it and located slightly deep inside the Korean town, away from the other cluttered strips of restaurants.

I used to dine here fairly often many years back till there was a change of ownership. Long before, there wasn't any private tatami rooms, and prices were cheaper too. Nevertheless, it is still cheaper than some of the upper-class restaurants located outside plus their marinated meats are still delicious.

Best of all, you don't have to move a finger except to eat. You'll have the pretty Dae Jang Geum waiter that does all the cooking for you. Just wait with your mouth wide open :P

Like any typical Korean meal, you are presented with a free flow buffet of banchan (side dishes), some of which are great, some of which are not (depending on how Korean are you) and they might be different each time you go.

Banchan (side dishes) are set in the middle of the table to be shared. Served in small portions and can be replenished during the meal as they are finished.

Complimentary pot of spicy clam stew with tofu meant to be shared. Hot, strong and flavorful - perfect soup for the cold rainy weather.

Complimentary pot of gyeran jjim (steamed egg casserole), it was light, fluffy creamy like consistency. Nice!

For 5 persons, we ordered 2 portions of daeji galbi (marinated bbq pork rib, RM 27/each) and 1 portion of mok deung sim (non-marinated fresh juicy sliced pork, RM 25/each), enough meats to go around for everyone and it was sufficient. I love their marinated meats most, daeji galbi is absolutely delicious, it was sweet, juicy and tender.

Refillable salad with condiments like sliced garlic, some seasoning and doenjang (fermented Korean soybean) sauce. A popular way of eating Korean barbecue is to dip the meat into the seasoning, then wrap the meat with lettuce and chuck everything else into it (salad + garlic + sauce).

One of my favorite Korean dishes, dol sot bibimbap (stone pot mixed rice, RM 18).

Mixed the bibimbap with the gochujang (fermented soybeans and red pepper) paste to enhance the flavor. It's nice but still somehow lacking compared to my usual favorite bibimbap place at Ampang Point, Gomone for only RM 13.

Verdict: Their side dishes might not be the best but their marinated meats are really good. Decently priced (referring to pork only, beef more expensive though) and expect to pay about RM 25 - 35 /pax which is quite reasonable comparing to the other Korean restaurants.

    @ohmywtf: But got Dae Jang Ggeum to serve woh!

    @nina: I think should have, pork free Korean BBQ restaurants, I think maybe I should also fill up the halal/non-halal information ;)

    @jfook: This one is located deep inside within a row of misery shops, not those popular ones outside facing Ampang Point.
