I managed to get a bit of it during the preview, and boy it is worth trying! If youre a beef lover, then this is a must try!

SeoulNami Korean BBQ | Halal Korean Grill

SeoulNami Korean BBQ at The Gardens Mall
Hey guys, I've been to Korea for about 4 to 5 times within the past 5 years and there's always one thing I tend to miss out on when it comes to Korean food, which would be the famous Korean grill! Why? Well, usually the issue of being in Korea is that it's usually not Halal, and even if there is a Halal restaurant that serves Korean BBQ grill, the distance is usually out of the way. But if you haven't heard, Malaysia finally has halal Korean BBQ Grill called SeoulNami Korean BBQ at The Gardens Mall. YAY!

Food Status: Pork-free, alcohol-free, halal ingredients used, in the midst of halal application process.

Time to order and check out the menu
The interior setting
A little background on SeoulNami Korean BBQ, it's inspired by the Famous Chuncheon Chicken SeoulNami Korean BBQ uses the most tender cut combining it with the best tasting Korean marinades to serve you Korean BBQ. The beauty of it would be that your food would be cooked right before your eyes using high heat charcoal for a tantalizing smoky aroma and a tasty caramelized crust, giving you a chance to savor it the Korean way!

Fist Rice, RM29.00


You may be required to make it into a ball via self-service
Proof on who did all the work. Hehe
As appetizers, you can start off your appetite with Chef's specialty 'Fist Rice'. I was wondering what it was the whole time when I was looking at the menu, but upon receiving the dish, we were told by the staff that the rice is served with seaweed flakes and fragrant chicken that we may need to hand-mix ourselves into mini rice balls. How cute is that? They gave us gloves, so don't worry about getting your hands dirty. Hehe.

And doest this look like a typical Korean meal to you? YAY!
Beef Platter ( Bulgogi, Beef Rib. FIngers, Beef Belly),  RM119
Let the grilling over charcoal begin!
And of course, I believe most of us would love our beef to be grilled on the charcoal right? The one we ordered would be the Beef Platter which is a must order for those who are looking to indulge beef that has been charcoal grilled before your eyes. The set comes with 3 different types of cut which includes bulgogi, beef rib fingers, and beef belly. Yums! You'll surely be able to tell the difference of beef by the end of the meal. I honestly love d the bulgogi the most as it was tender and easy to chew on!

Honey Butter Chicken, RM59.00
Once you put it on the griller, you can cut it into smaller pieces too!
Hot Pepper Chicken, RM59.00
Spicy and juicy at the same time!
And fret not if youre, not a beef lover, there's always chicken as your next option in the menu. Here we have two types of chicken out of the 4 flavors that they offer, namely the Honey Butter Chicken and the Hot Pepper Chicken. Matching these two was one of the greatest ideas to us as it both complimented each other when you need some spice in your life, or if you would rather have a milder flavor. They will give you tongs and scissors for you to cut the chicken in bite size sizes too so that it's easy to share.

Spicy Baby Octopus, RM39.00
Cut it into small pieces for easy sharing
Why not enjoy it with Ssam Vege Wrap the Korean way?
An addition to that, you can also order the Spicy Baby Octopus marinated in Korean Style sauce. These baby octopuses are pretty huge in size and SeoulNami actually took the effort to find a supplier that supplies only big baby octopuses to maintain their standards. Im impressed! Upon cooking it on the grill, the marinate really just melts into the baby octopus and you can just pick up the octopus from the grill and enjoy it while it's still hot. If you ordered the Ssam Vege Wrap, its always nice to combine. your wrap with kimchi and the octopus, just like how the Koreans would enjoy it.

Mandatory picture with the BBQ grill
Fresh Kimchi (inclusive of Signature Kimchi Trio Set, RM29.00)
Fried Kimchi (inclusive of Signature Kimchi Trio Set, RM29.00)
Smoked Kimchi (inclusive of Signature Kimchi Trio Set, RM29.00)
Another highlight about SeoulNami Korea BBQ is that they also serve exclusively made kimchi that I've never seen before in any other Korean stores. This is the Signature Kimchi Trio, where it features  3 variations of flavors for you to enjoy. Being a huge Kimchi lover, im surprised to see that they have original, fried and smoked kimchi being served in their store! A must try if youre up for something different.

Sweet Potato to enjoy after all the meat is gone
Charcoal Burnt Cheesecake, RM12 (2 pcs)
Before I forget about the little surprises that you may get out of the BBQ meal, you are exclusively entitled to order Sweet Potatoes and their Charcoal Burnt Cheesecake to be enjoyed at the end of your grilling session. I loved the idea where they included the sweet potatoes and desserts in, and boy it tasted so good! The Charcoal Burnt Cheesecake was my favorite as it tasted as if it was freshly baked out of the oven, literally!

Fire Ramyeon, RM39.00
Odeng Seafood Pot, RM49.00

Fizzy Sour Plum Cooler & Sparkling Orange Cream Soda, RM19/each jug
If youre with a group of friends who are big eaters, then there are always some options that you may add from the chef's specials 'good to share' menu. For spicy lovers, you would definitely want to try their Fire Ramyeon, which is cooked with seafood and surprises you with a spicy kick. It had a combination of sweet and spicy, but the kick was definitely there. Alternatively if you're not so brave, the Odeng Seafood Pot is worth to try as well. And as for the drinks, I would highly recommend you to go big with their jug of specialty drinks as they are way better valued for money than going for smaller portions. Hehe.

Get a taste of Halal Korean BBQ at SeoulNami Korean BBQ
SeoulNami Menu: Famous Chuncheon Chicken
SeoulNami Menu: BBQ Beef and Seafood Korean Grill
SeoulNami Menu: Beef Platter and Chef's Specialty
SeoulNami Menu: Desserts and Beverages
Well, there you have it! Other than that, SeoulNami also offers others things on the menu (Refer above for SeoulNami's Menu), but the ones that I've tried are the ones that were recommended by the staff who were working there. Overall I must say that it was a lovely experience to get a taste of Korea in Kuala Lumpur and would definitely come back for more when i crave for this which I believe would be pretty soon. Hehe.
