Uncle Jang @ Melaka

Annyeonghasaeyo~ I finally went for some Korean food today with KS after craving it for some time. Was so excited when I saw that Uncle Jang has opened a branch here in Melaka, since it's quite highly raved about in KL, we decided to go and try it.

Uncle Jang in Melaka is located opposite of Aeon, as you can see, it's on the second floor, so don't be fooled by the empty shop below. Lol. It opens 365 days a year :D So no worries, you can go there anytime. Best of all, the parking there is free!

This is the interior of the restaurant. A bit disappointed that they don't have the option of sitting on the floors like real Koreans to eat, only chairs and tables. But it is big and spacious.

They provide aprons for all their customers to prevent the oil from splattering on our clothes when they cook the food. Good thing they did, I was wearing a white top and the oil would have ruined it. 

We ordered 2 portions of their famous Dak-Galbi (stir fried marinated diced chicken in chilli pepper based sauce, sliced cabbage, scallions, onions and tteokbokki / rice cakes) in Normal Spicy (RM19 per portion). The 'Normal Spicy" was just nice for us, not too spicy but spicy enough to have the perfect taste. 

We also chose 1 portion of Ramen (RM6) as our side dish. The waiters there cooked for us, which is a very good thing. Don't need to worry if the food is under-cooked. haha.

These are the extra side dishes that they provided us which are refillable. The kimchi they provided was not spicy at all, so it won't add any spiciness to the already spicy dish. 

 *Pretends to be an awesome chef*

 Jal meokgetseumnida~ (Thank you for the food / I will eat well) I really liked their meat. It's very tender and juicy. Also, the ramen goes perfectly with the Dak-Galbi. Neomu masisseoyo~ (It's very delicious~)

However, I would advise to not over order. Because the whole dish is practically the same taste, so if you eat too much of it, you might feel jelak. And the portion is quite filling, so it would be better to not order too many side dishes.

Overall rating: 7.5/10

It's a bit on the pricey side, but I do recommend to try it at least once if you're a fan of Korean food ^^ They also have a member card and you collect stamps with it. You get 1 free portion of Dak-Galbi after 15 stamps :D
