Sopoong, IOI City Mall

My colleague who is so 'ambitious' wanting to conquer try out every F&B outlet in IOI city mall...
I tagged along on one of his 'ambitious-food-tour-lunch' in this new outlet...a Korean restaurant which also has outlets in Times Square & Quill City Mall.
as this is a halal franchise, u dun expect to see pork in its menu...
the interior looks good and perfect for a quiet chat...but that depends as weekend could be busier.
here's my order...a set meal of Gimbap which came with soup and 3 banchans
and a small bowl of tteokbokki.
My Verdict:
Gimbap was delicious. The cucumber+carrot+egg+pickles blended so well in this rice roll.
Banchan consists of coleslaw (yea, it's western!), kimchi cauliflower and kimchi cucumber.
Daikon soup overloaded with msg....
meanwhile the rice cake in Tteokbokki was hard...it took me some 'time & effort' to chew them before safely swallowing each piece. I hope u get what I mean...
This set meal also came with a drink (hot/cold tea)
This value for money set cost about RM16.90 (excl service charge & tax)....I was so full after finishing them.

I know what you mean about the hard Tteokbokki. For me, my weak teeth won't be able to handle it. I would have to tapao the dish and boil it longer at home until it is softer before eating it.

Mun: luckily my main dish is not on tteokbokki. My colleague ordered jst plainly tteokbokki and it was a huge plate!

RealGunners: nolar, my colleague tasted some as well. But it was a filling meal with rice and rice cake (tteokbokki), I've to skip dinner that day.

Haha! I know what it feels like. I've done that before too e.g. eating at every single place in a mall or area. Had some nice and some not-so-nice stuff. This looks quite promising even though it's halal. The price for the sets is reasonable too. Too bad about the hard tteokbokki, it's supposed to be very very soft, had some in 2008 for the first time (Pusan during a business trip) and it was delicious.

Huai Bin: I never hav the chance to taste the authentic tteokbokki in Korea (during a short biz trip there in 2012) but I believe it should be chewable (like Chinese tang yuan).
