Best Korean Food in Kuantan Gangnam Street Revisited

Since we had such a great dining experience at Gangnam Street, here we were again trying out a different set of dishes. We had a fiery Korean meal during our first visit as stated in my previous post. This time round the dishes were not spicy and milder to the stomach.

Sausage Yachae Bokkeum
This was our first time tasting Korean style Vienna sausages and I must say they were extremely addictive! The skin were crunchy with a slightly chewy filling and were bursting in flavour! This dish is popular among children as it is stir fried in a ketchup and sugar based sauce together with colourful vegetable combinations like bell pepper slices, broccoli, cauliflower, mushroom slices sprinkled with white sesame seeds.


Pan fried mandul

The Korean dumplings are different from both the Chinese and Japanese dumplings. This pan fried variety was filled with pork mince based filling with some vermicelli, sprinkled with mixed herbs to give more fragrance. The dipping sauce was either homemade Korean chilli sauce or a signature soy sauce based version (with onion, sesame, chilli flakes etc) which came from the boss's secret recipe.

Odeng soup


Directly imported from Korea, this fish cake soup comforts the hungry tummy during this cold and rainy monsoon season. Fish cake skewers were cooked in a clear broth with slices of shitake mushrooms, hard boiled eggs, tteokbokki and spring onion. The fish cakes were of spicy and non spicy varieties with different shapes and textures.


Tteokbokki


This Korean stir fry rice cake dish was more sesame oil based with bell pepper, broccoli, cabbage, cauliflower, vermicelli and rice cake slices. The surprise element here was hard boiled quail eggs which was the main protein in the dish. I love how chewy yet soft the rice cake here is, simply irresistible!

Each Gangnam street visit brought us some surprise dish choices. Even though we have never been to Korea before, we are so grateful to be able to taste these awesome new flavours. So if you want to try something new, head on to Gangnam Street Kuantan!
