Late Lunch at Sariwon

Its been a couple of years since we last ate at Sariwon in Promenade so we're all excited to dine there again. Hubby and daughter are craving for a Korean meal and we happen to go to Greenhills and remembered Sariwon.


Read more about our first dining experience at --- Sariwon.


Banchan comes free in every Korean restaurant. Sariwon serves unlimited Banchan and it includes: lettuce salad with sesame oil vinaigrette, mashed squash, broiled kang-kang, kimchi, sweet-salty peanuts with dilis, potato cubes, and spicy sayote strips. Banchans are basically side dishes and every Korean restaurants have their own different set of Banchans.


Dwaeji Galbi, P380. These are grilled pork loins. Very tender and flavorful. Serving size is good for sharing. You may just have to ask them to cut the meat in smaller pieces or bite size pieces upon serving or you can just request scissors so that you can cut it yourself.


Ojingeo-Bokkeum, P380.  Hubby prefers seafood over meat so I got this spicy squid for him. I love how the sesame oil balances the flavor of the chili paste. The squid is also perfectly cooked (meaning it is tender).


Seolleongtang, P320. I always order bone soup whenever we dine at a Korean restaurant. Rich soup with some bones and meat with glass noodles. You can add some chili paste to make it a bit spicy. Really, really good! Must try at Sariwon.


Mandu or Mandoo, P195. Ordered Mandoo as an afterthought because the promised unlimited Banchan took ages to arrive at our table (we just requested for additional mashed squash and peanuts and we have to remind them 3-4x). These are filled with kimchi and not meat, and 3 pieces are fried and 3 pieces are steamed. The fried ones tastes better than the steamed ones because the skin tends to harden when it is steamed and then you forgot to eat it at once. Note to self: don't order this again.

Ooma-zing Food!

Sharing one of our resto-favorite! We've been dining here for about three years now and as much as I'd like to keep this resto a secret, it's already out in the open about how good the food is at Ooma. Ooma is a Japanese-fusion restaurant so don't expect the usual Japanese dish preparations but be ready for not only a visual feast but a fusion of east and west. For starters, we had this delightful cheesy maki. I believe this is on a limited run on the menu so I really can't recall what it's called. Crunchy and cheesy really, my daughter love this so much.

Michelin Star Dining at Putien, Pavilion KL

Michelin Star restaurants are suddenly multiplying especially in the Southeast Asean region with lots of homegrown restaurants getting the international recognition it deserves. One such restaurant is Putien,  whose dishes can be traced back to Fujian, China. Putien was awarded a 1-Star Michelin in 2016, this was in Singapore where the restaurant originated. It has then expanded with several restaurants in SG and in other countries such as Malaysia, Indonesia, Hong Kong, Taiwan, and China.
