Ko Hyang (故乡)＝ my homeland
There’s a reason it is always packed – good food with reasonable price (from RM9.90 to RM 18.90). With free banchan and soup too!
Ko Hyang is no stranger to the foodies in KL. Owned by a Korean who used to study here, this kiosk like eating place serves home made korean food. The one page menu features simple korean favourites such as bibimbap, jap chae (stir fry glass noodles), jeons (pancakes) and some rice/noodles dishes.
I was there last weekend with the girls (Christine and Aiwei) and we ordered up a feast that can easily feed 4 to 5 people.
Topped with namul (sauteed vegetables), gochujang (chili pepper paste) and a fried egg with runny egg, bibimbap is also known as korean mixed rice. Remember to give it a good stir before eating. It is a healthy selection for those who are watching their intake.
Tteokbokki! The cylinder shaped rice cakes were sticky and chewy along with a spicy sauce. While I love the texture of the tteoks, the sauce was too bland for my liking.
Ojinguh Bokkeum (stir fried squid in spicy sauce) is my favourite of the lot! The taste reminds me of the cheap korean dishes that I had in a random stall in Seoul. So delicious!
The kimchi jeon was very good too; with fluffy centre and crispy edges. It tasted even better when dipped with the tangy sauce.
And of course the meal wouldn’t have been as great as it was without you girls!
