Hwang Hae & Palsaik @ Solaris Mont Kiara

Lamb or pork? Solaris Mont Kiara has restaurants that specialise in either sort of barbecued meat: Lamb is the protein of choice at Hwang Hae, where customers can tear into fleshy skewers of cook-it-yourself, charcoal-grilled lamb in original Korean BBQ marinades or other Asian flavours like teriyaki or curry, starting at north of RM30 per serving of up to 10 sticks.

Palsaik has carved a reputation as a go-to place for 'eight-coloured' pork belly, with each hue produced via separate marinades - ginseng, wine, pine needles, garlic, herb, curry, hot pepper & soy bean paste. The meat tastes fresh & is enjoyably juicy, with well-tuned flavours, some more distinctive than others. A BBQ feast for four - all eight pork flavours, plus grilled deodeok mountainous medicinal roots, a hearty seafood soup, tender kimchi & assorted veggies - will inch past RM150.

  1. Palsaik just opened a branch near my place! They're in Sunway Giza now too.

    I first had Palsaik a year ago, during my better half's birthday, also at Mont Kiara. It was good and they carry reasonably priced makgeolli too.

    I've never tried Hwang Hae though but it sounds promising coz I love the taste of lamb. I will check it out next time I'm at Mont Kiara. Cheers! :)

    1. Huai Bin: that's quite a consistent expansion ... i hadn't heard about giza, but i know they opened on old klang road some time ago :)
      i'll take makgeolli over soju on most days, in terms of flavour preference :)
      am actually not a lamb lover, but it was interesting to see a korean place that specialises in lamb instead of pork, chicken or beef :)

  2. Does the lamb meat have gamy taste?
    My wife did mention to me about the 8 colored pork belly some time before CNY but I was too lazy to search for it.. And now you posted about this restaurant

    1. Leo: the lamb wasn't too gamy ... luckily for me, since i don't enjoy the gaminess of lamb very much :) the pork belly would be a good meal if you want korean bbq but want to try something a bit different from the usual bbq's elsewhere :)

  3. My girl and the mum would love these places - they are so into Korean these days. Sighhhh!!!! :D

    1. Suituapui: the momentum for the Korean craze seems to be strong and steady! To be honest, I'm completely unaffected (for now!) :)

  4. Lamb and Korean food, both my favourite! Seem like a perfect combination!

    1. Choi Yen: heheh, hope you enjoy Hwang Hae if you manage to check it out :D
