Oiso & Mr Dakgalbi

Octopus at Oiso: A Korean hotpot teeming with tentacles, bolstered with beef bulgogi & vegetables, seems to be an occasional speciality at some branches of this popular chain. We had ours back in 2014 in Menara Hap Seng; perhaps it's still available.

Oiso is at Menara Hap Seng, The Sphere in Bangsar South, Cheras Leisure Mall, Tropicana City Mall, Ikano Power Centre & Faber Tower in Taman Desa. This octopus steamboat cost RM59++ for a portion for two persons in 2014 (add RM10 for soju).

This restaurant is available for bookings under TABLEAPP, which enables customers to make instant reservations at Malaysia's top restaurants, while saving time and money in the process. Reserve your table at this restaurant by clicking here.

Octopus is a recommended add-on at Mr Dakgalbi - tentacles are cut into bite-sized portions & tossed in with the main serving of diced chicken, crunchy veggies & rice cakes, stir-fried on a hot stone plate with gochujang chilli pepper paste, mixed with ramen, followed at a subsequent stage by rice & cheese, for a filling meal with creamy-sticky textures & sweet-spicy flavours.

Mr Dakgalbi has branches at SohoKL, Tropicana City Mall, Sri Petaling, Citta Mall, Setiawalk Puchong & Setapak PV128.
