Bonga - BEST Family Korean Food at Solaris, Mont Kiara

Korean restaurants are growing like mushroom in Kuala Lumpur but I don't really like Kim Chi. Usually I either choose Japanese or Chinese, Korean gave me a feeling of neither nor.

Except this Bonga in Solaris, Mont Kiara, totally run by 1st generation Korean. They occupy 2nd and 3rd floors by only 2nd floor is open to public.




You will have to get up through this entrance, either by walking up the stairs or take the lift. The lift next door will reach Bonga too although it doesn't explicitly said that on ground floor.

Once I stepped in and heard a 'hello' in English and thats about it. There is no more communication after that. Ok, I was exaggerating. But communication is a big gap, its just like I am in Seoul again, OMG ! Except ONE hot lady who speaks fluent English, since she has to deal with ALL Non Korean speaking customers, its one supply many demands market condition. Too bad I didn't take her picture ... you will just have to go visit her yourself.

There are many nice little decorative items all around the restaurant ...




And for people who knows me, dinner starts with liquor or in this case - Soju !



Its a little smoother than Japanese Sake ... but about the same ...



If you have been to a authentic Korean restaurant, you would have known they served tons of appetizers. And basically that is the MAIN reasons why one should visit a Korean restaurant ... at least I thought so.







Kim Chi !!! Many like it, its just ok to me ...



This pan cake or kuih type appetizer is a bit weird ....




BBQ time !! They started with REAL charcoals ...

Put on the grill tap ....



and BBQ away ! ...




We also had Kim Chi mix soup. Its almost like ABC soup or Chinese's mix veggie soup but with Kim Chi sauces of course.


This my NUMBER 1 recommendation !! If you come here, this is THE ONE you should try. One pot serve 2 persons and definitely able to serve up to 4 persons if you are small eaters or you plan to share other stuff - like the BBQ.

Fried Mackerel, recommended by another blog ... the fish is fresh but I am not that into this. Most people love it thao ...

It comes with this special rice too ...


This is what it looks like at the end ...

These are their menus ... just in case you want to plan what to eat before going ...






We were seated on the 3rd floor, perhaps because there are 13 of us ? These are the views outside ....

Bravo for posting the menu online! It definitely helps by providing readers a better insight on what the pricing is like =)

thanks, some of the dishes rm30-50 are 2 person portions. generally Bonga's menu is quite limited, less choices but it may also mean more focus on their food quality and cheaper than other korean restaurants.
