Fried chicken has been a favourite among chicken lovers of all ages. Here at the Korean chicken house Mont Kiara, you will probably find the best Korean fried chicken within Klang Valley. Chicken is extra crispy and fried in such a way that the skin is extremely tasty with the batter coated beautifully to balance the soft white meat that is tender juicy to each bite. Also on the menu is a list of very delicious dishes that’s superb for any occasion.
To start off, Soy Sauce with Garlic whole chicken (RM 55), Chicken Ganjeong half chicken (RM 38) and Hot Chili Sauce Half Chicken (RM 38) are all pleasures. For one, there are no soggy bottoms. Then, there is a coating close to crunchy that’s not greasy at all. With close to a dozen of varieties on the menu, every piece of chicken bite is tantalising and finger licking good. The one time that I didn’t mind not leaving out the chicken skin and would not hesitate to repeat it is when I’m eating here.
Also notoriously known to be a little hefty on the price tag (with good reason when there are not only delicious local sourced fresh produce, but also imported ingredients like Korean spam that’s massively adored by the native), the army pots and stews are not to be overlooked. Especially on a chilly night when you have someone to share this dish with.
Budae jiggae here serves a hearty stew with the combo of your choice that’s beautifully prepared in a hot pan and cooked upon us to our delight. And with the trending cheese gimmick, I find myself being obliged to order cheese add on just so the cheese fans can be informed of these cheesy pull factor when scouting for their cheesy meal. By that, I don’t mean that the add on is a must because I truly think that it was lovelier without the added cheese.(RM 8) Call me old school but I like it as it is without the cheese.
A regular Budae jiggae, Pork Military Soup (RM 60) here started off with plenty of fresh looking ingredients and I’ve ordered additional Ramyeon noodle (RM 8). Watching the bubbles emerging as is boils was a joy and in no a couple of minutes, the ingredients quickly cooked in the Seafood Military Soup (RM 70 for regular size that is good for 2- 3pax).
Together with toasts of a few drinks, dinner becomes warmer than the pot thats boiling perpetually as we clink the glasses into the night. Recommended by the lady boss here, their best seller Mango Makgeolli will easily be the kryptonite of every mango lover.
