Went out for lunch with colleague during one of my 'work-from-office' day...
It has been ages since my last Korean meal, so we went to Sopoong to try out their affordable set meals.
I ordered the udon + gimbap set meal which comes with a pot of udon in plain soup. It has seaweed, a few pieces of surimi sticks, fish cakes and oyster mushrooms. Quite bland as the soup is plain with some umami taste from the seaweed and fish cakes.
Luckily there are 7 pieces of gimbap that comes with the set....The gimbaps are flavorful (coz of the seaweed paper that wrapped around it). So contented after eating this!
as usual, some banchan with the main....
cucumber kimchi, napa cabbage kimchi and plain cabbage...
*sort of vegetarian
this meal costs RM19.90 ++
or RM23 nett inclusive of tax and service charges.
Just another decent meal that fills up my hungry stomach....but well, at least i dun have to wait long coz this shop is quite empty during the peak lunch hour.
I love Korean food and I like natural tasting food but I won't order udon cos too much noodles for me. If it taste bland to you, just eat the udon with kimchi. Then will be flavourful enough. I have eaten bibimbap steamed egg set at Sopoong in starling 2 or 3 years ago. I wonder whether the shop is still there or not.
Mun: Yea i have to mix the udon with kimchi to get some 'flavor' otherwise i wouldn't finish the udon.
A lot of carbo in this set. At least it contains a variety of tastes.
Would want to try as well. Have gone to IOI Putrajaya quite a number of times but usually we try something else. So perhaps this should be out next stop for food.
I used to go to the one at Starling and I find that their food is just so so except for maybe one or two dishes that are above average.
It has been ages since I had a Korean cuisine. Lol. Not a big fan so if I am to choose, I rather go for Japanese or Western cuisine than Korean.
I didn't know that Sopoong had branches too. I only ate the one outlet at Starling Mall. I like their food.
I learned never to say to any Korean that Gimbap looks like Japanese sushi rolls. My Korean housemates wanted to kill me! They said it originated from ancient Korea as recorded in history and the Japs stole or copied the recipe. Looks like the story of Carrier's air conditioner being copied and made Panasonic the best selling in the whole world. Kikikiki
