Samgeori (3Geori) Butcher at YG Republique Malaysia

 

We easily have almost close to authentic K-BBQ in Klang valley but to actually let you forget the fact that you are not in Korea, head on over to Samgeori at Trec KL. That’s right! YG Republique is now in Kuala Lumpur.

Thick slices of top notch meat were served free flow for all guests at the grand launch ceremony. Chug it with those beers going around and for a second there I’ve forgotten my job because all I could focus was the delicious bite of well-balanced fat layering of pork belly. I really dislike pork belly but this one tastes amazing. Each bite was juicy and super moist with the perfect chew texture when the fat layer completely melts the minute you sink your teeth into it.

Of course, this inauguration was star studded. The launch of the restaurant was attended by celebrities and prominent stars whom left their signatures on the wall. Which also means that selfie with the wall becomes mandatory from then on. Big Bang’s member Seungri were present and trust me, the place was swamped with fans and securities.

 

I am absolutely in love with the Iberico pork belly and am definitely returning again for a proper dine and taste. Stay tuned to the proper review in the near future. Also, if you are directed to this page to see pics of your favourite celebrity, they were highly protected by tight securities I hardly catch a glimpse at all. Sorry.

Malas Tapas Bar @ Nexus Bangsar South

MALas Tapas Bar @ Nexus Bangsar Sosuth

 

Malas- supposedly spelled as Malaysian Tapas but makes a lousy portmanteau when named Malas. If it isn’t obvious enough that it actually meant lazy in bahasa, well then one could easily identify that and see it in their operating staffs because they are definitely living up to the name of this place for sure. The service crew seriously need a massive encouragement (when we are the only customer) to get them paying more attention to the customers; let alone requesting them to walk over to our table. Dainty choices are there on the menu to spoilt the customers but if Malas were to be judged solely on this alone, it would be a breakthrough for local flavour for sure. Though very unfortunately, the rest of the dining experience left it a few pegs short.

To start off, the attractive selections on the menu gets your heart pumping in excitement and when we finally agreed on the few, we were told in a frustrated tone that those weren’t available. And after a few battling rounds to try and remember what they have and what they don’t have in the kitchen, we decided to just settle with whatever it is that’s there. It’s worst because those items are the least exciting but I was determined to give it a go.

 

The first hiccup came when we tackled the Tapas section. They were out of our first few choices (on a Sunday at 5pm?) so went with Curious Popcorn Chicken (RM 10.90). They promise a surprise for we rely on our luck; as it consists of a mix of marinated chicken, asam, sweet and sour, oyster or spicy. Alas, I couldn’t tell what flavour it is that I got on the day. But that wasn’t all that is. The Maggi Goreng (RM 11.90), a Malaysian staple from mamak, had a load of tofu pok, taukua, and vegetables with small chunks of large prawns. While serviceable, it was over seasoned, especially salt.

Guilt factor mode on alert if you are ordering Salted Egg Sotong (RM 8.90). This deep-fried calamari coated with salted egg is a big no-no, although the flavour of salted egg really shine through the rubbery and tough-to-chew-and-break loops of calamari rings. Definitely tasted like it’s been double (or ever tripped) cooked before coating with the salted egg.

Malaysian cuisine has a reputation for having been derived from plenty to coconut and wok heat, with tasty sauces and gravy, and all were represented on the menu, including nasi lemak, char kuey teow, rempah ayam and more. The menu is lengthy, and most diners will find something that appeals. That is if they have them in the kitchen to begin with. Of course, if you are just there for a quick cooling beer or some shaved ice then it the place hosts the perfect vibe.

K-Pub (YG Republique) @ Trec KL

K Pub -YG Republique @ Trec KL

 

Korea’s biggest entertainment brand is happening here in Malaysia at one of the most happening location in Kuala Lumpur- Trec KL. Together with Samgeori Butcher’s BBQ grill restaurant and the upcoming K Ramen, there is also the K-Pub within a single restaurant complex. Fan of YG Republique can now spend some hip and cool dine and wine moments all under one roof whilst accompanied by some of the latest and trendiest K- tunes.

We’ve tasted the amazing premium meats at the Samgeori Butcher at the grand opening and now, we toast and drink our way through some colourful mix of alcohol and paired it with some comforting and delicious Korean snacks cum mains. That we are talking about the carbo loaded Korean Pancake (RM 25), the delicious Seasnail Salad with cold noodle (RM 70), the renowned K-Fried Chicken (RM 50) and the homemade sauce coated Red Chicken (RM 50). I’m personally not a fan of their pancake rendition maybe because I made mine with lesser oil? But the Sea snail salad totally nailed it, I was slurping my way through the noodle and chewing the snails away nonstop. Chicken aren’t the best of this top Korean native favourite snack but hey, it worked with the Malaysian palate – still juicy on the inside with generous crispy batter wrapping the bite sized chicken pieces.

And what’s the best on top of that? Soju bomb of course! But if snacking and drinking over a long night, please go easy with the booze cause they have a serious line up of fun mixes. Staff operates like clockwork and cocktails are taken so seriously with the flips, tapping, or the raise of a little pinky while grabbing on the shaker; and all that with the focused eye and a smile on the face. It’s nice to see the bartenders keeping things pro and fun at the same time and if you are lucky, he might even do a little magic trick to spice up the night. Such charisma was quite the perfect way to kick off proceedings especially when munching off with those Assorted Dried snacks (RM 60). Featuring the YG signature Cocktails at RM 30 each, the instant colour boost on the bar was a lovely sight. These colours are strong boozes – there’s Magarita, Singapore Sling, Korean Sojito, Pina Colada, and Martini.

Coolest Korean entertainment restaurant in town here would easily capture the heart of K-pop fans if not Korean food lover but most importantly, it’s about the booze pairing.
