Hong Dae Korean BBQ @ Permas Jaya in Johor Bahru

Hong Dae Korean BBQ @ Permas Jaya in Johor Bahru

Driving around Permas Jaya at night looking for dinner, we stumbled upon the bright lights of Hongdae Korean BBQ restaurant and decided to pull over to check it out. The food was tasty and pricing was reasonable. Service was good too.

Simple furnishings, bright, clean and well kept, every table was equipped with a table top BBQ stove and "elephant trunk" exhaust. (There were no platforms with sunken wells for our feet which is one of the trademarks of traditional Korean BBQ places.)

Two of us, we picked the two person set which came to RM88 after taxes.

Service was very quick. The ban chan (small side dishes) were laid out within minutes of ordering our BBQ set. They were OK but there was nothing particularly memorable among these.

The BBQ stoves were charcoal fired but we didn't feel excessive heat. In fact, we felt cool and very comfortable.

The staff was really quick. The slices of unmarinaded pork belly were on the grill before I took a shot of them 😂

The staff quietly and efficiently grilled the pork belly slices expertly and cut them into bite size squares when they were lightly seared.

Next on the grill, mildly spicy marinated pork.

The grilled marinated pork too were cut into bite sizes. The meat was done relatively dry by default. If you like your meat more tender and juicier, let the staff know beforehand.

We enjoyed the ssambap (Korean BBQ meat in lettuce wrap).

The savoury spicy sweet tofu stew was beyond our expectation as it was loaded with crustacean umami from prawns and clams. There were also squids. Love Hong Dae's delicious rendition of this dish.
