Jang-Gun Korean Restaurant @ Fahrenheit 88

Monday, August 26, 2013 0 Comments A+ a-


We were invited for another round of big event organize by OpenRice Malaysia and this round we are heading to the well known restaurant called the Jang-Gun Korean Restaurant which was awarded with the title as the most reviewed restaurant in OpenRice.. Jang Gun is actually under the same company as the Grand Saisaki Sdn Bhd group which offer wide variety of food which covers almost 200 varieties! 

Actually what i observed here, the  food is variety but not to my expectation of more Korean food that suites the theme and the restaurant name. Mainly here the restaurant is more to  Japanese food and local Asian food.  The Korean counter is just normal and not as impressive as the one i visited in Solaris Mont Kiara. But the service and the place is pretty good. The seats arrangement is comfortable and service is quite good. 




 This food tasting event is quite interesting where they play games as warming up session and we enjoy it while going around to take our food.The culinary journey start with my favourite Japanese food.






Sushi platter they have Salmon, tuna,scallop fish butterfish, mussel sushi, mayo, tako, maki sushi and lots more.


There are few types of pancakes - Seafood spicy onion (haemul pa jeon),Kimchi (kimchi jeon),Potato (kamja jeon),Pumpkin (ho bak jeon) and others. The pancake is quite disappointing.Mostly is dry and some i notice on the bottom layer of the pancake is burnt. Not appetizing at all.

There are other seafood side dish available and also some local food- Sea Cucumber with Mushroom and Abalone Slices, Shark’s Fin Omelette, Bulgogi, Spicy Rice Cake and Baked Snail with Cheese,Mackerel (ko dong ngo),Eel (chang ngo),Sanma (tong chi gui),Squid (o jing ngo gui) and others.I also try their Kimchi fried rice (kimchi bokam pap), Glass noodle and fried udon. Mixture of Japanese, Korean, Western and Chinese food here.





Spicy bamboo shell

Sea cucumber

Sweet and sour chicken


There are few choices on the soups available- ginseng chicken soup,  tomyam soup, kim chi soup, herbal soup and etc.. Fresh serving for the prawns,crabs,  scallops, mussels,  and some vegetable were prepared for you to boil with hot water, then poured with the soup/stew that you have choose.

Fried octopus (nak chi bokom), Fried squid (o jing ngo bokom), Fried chicken (doek bokom),Fried baby octopus (chu ko mi),Spicy rice cake (toek boki),Rice cake (toek boki),Fried vegetable garlic (man nul chong),Beef rib stew (kalbi chim), salmon ball, soft shell crab and lots more. Also trying out their fried tempura.
.

Grilled section where we can choose any type of the meat to be grilled on the spot. They have squid, duck, lamb meat, chicken, beef, fish and too.




Cooling ice cream available just nice to end our meal.







The drinks are available but is free flow on your own. Unlike the serving in Saisaki where they will provide us the hot green tea and refill for us. Here in Jang Gun, they have choices of cold drinks ( such as the green tea, grape, orange and mango juice)  and for the hot beverages they have coffee, latte & hot chocolate.

 Moving on i saw the delectable assorted Cakes which  i like the most is the chocolate moist cake and also this jelly. On the other side they also provide cincau water,cocktail mixed fruit and not to forget the cendol section.


There are also some fresh fruits available such as fresh watermelon,papaya, melon and etc.

The Chocolate fondue with marshmallow is quite impressive and i enjoy dipping it with my girl

The latest trend of the cold ice cream which called the squeezit. It is totally brand new product and Squeezit is a new ice-cream dessert imported from Hokkaido, Japan. The premium ice-cream is made of pure 100 ingredients of fruits  (no added artificial flavorings) which have 11 different flavours, including vanilla, chocolate,banana,rasberry, hazelnut, mango, cherry, green tea, macha and etc. Price is only about RM 5.90 each.



I only managed to try two flavors and i wanted to try all flavor of this  new Japanese desert but it was really cold. The moment i suck it, it was like flowing nonstop and i even split it onto my shirt.Suddenly it burst and explode when i forgotten to suck it continuously. Opss. Need a little bit of focus here. I really enjoy the flavored sherbet, smooth and something new to try on. Squeezit is available at Sunway Medical Centre, Jaya One, and newly open at Mid Valley AEON Big.



Overall, my preference is on the desserts rather then the main course. I love the desserts especially the chocolate  cakes, the ice creams and also the Squeezit. Others food is pretty decent and there is room for improvement on the food and i am looking forward for more Korean cuisines in this restaurant.

Drawbacks on the serving for the pancake, the fried section, and the stew item. That's just my two cents about the buffet here.



It was a truly great experience meeting up with other bloggers and opportunity to meet the Saisaki management group. We even have goodies bag to take home.

Do enjoy this link to see how they enjoying the Squeezit. My hubby is there making his own high tower of the squeezit! Haha..

Online deals is tricky

Wednesday, August 14, 2013 6 Comments A+ a-

It's been a while i have not update my blog (enjoying my 90 days maternity now) and would like share some of my own experience redeem these online deals lately.

1) I need to spend more time to read through all the long list of the terms and condition stated in the deals website and added quite few restriction.Really have to read carefully

2) Once bought the vouchers, advisable to redeem it asap not later than 1 month.Some restaurant close down, for some saying the main course is only left 3 out of 6 choices, fully booked for those facial or massage service and etc.

3) Only Groupon website i can see have selection of the customer service feedback for refund issue and more effective than any other website.

4) Recently, bought the item from Living Social, called to ask if the item is ready to collect at their office in Mid valley,and they said confirm YES!. The next day,my hubby went to their office was told the item is not there!wasting time and such a bad service that we experience here.So, they promise they will send by delivery FOC, but the item yet to reach my house.I doubt to purchase other item in the future and if really i found a good deal i wish to purchase,i will need call twice perhaps,getting their name and in written email as proof.

5) Another issue that is that we bought the hard disk from I Love Discount website.Offering a good price of RM 199 Bought for so long but, no email send to us to inform the status and we need to email to this website to ask for the status.So upset and disappointed that they actually refunded the money to us. Reason behind is the merchant cannot afford to provide such low price of the hard disk and said they have no such item and will not continue to deliver to us.

If they can't do such deal, please don't sell it on the online deals and giving us hope that we can buy such item with such attractive price. So troublesome, we need to email them, calling the merchant (no one answering) and waiting for the item to be delivered and now waiting for the money to be refunded to our account!

6) Many repeat deals and not interesting at all. Some website like WeBuy, Dealmates (especially), I Love Discount, Mydeal, Myimart, and others offering not much deals and getting bored of such website and seems not reliable. Seems like there is nothing much interesting deal in there. I just still getting active browse through Groupon and Living Social website only recently.

7) When making payment,some of the issue i encounter is the system cannot go through smoothly and frustration

8) The drawback for some deals is they giving short period to redeem the voucher. For example, the deal in Living Social for food deals, only can redeem within one months time, and some of the massage deals within 2-3 months only. Just imagine they sold more than 200 voucher and even more, how we can redeem it within the time frame and usually when called for reservation everything is FULLY BOOKED (that's what i hate to hear it) even i called up early and EVEN when i have booked, and on that day i went to redeem it, they can't even find my name. This is the worst scenario and they won't let you in. Another tricky way is the merchant actually wanted the customers to redeem it during weekdays. So you might just need to apply leave to redeem your vouchers...

9) I would like to share to you all that buying cash voucher is more reliable than those 3 main course or 5 main course. At least i was greeted as walk in customers, and shown the actual menu and the portion of the food is same as the usual walk in customers.( so far i observe they did not actually reduce the portion). And all the food is prepared fresh from the kitchen according to the menu we chosen.

Calling all pork lovers! Do come over to Juro Restaurant which is located at Menjalara Kepong to enjoy the  100% made of premium pork meat here. Wide selection of the Western cuisines which is famous of their German sausages, pork ribs, pork knuckle, and pastas. Juro Restaurant is casual and family-oriented restaurant which offers good quality of pork meat for your indulgence.

Mr. Terry (the owner of this restaurant), is very creative of getting the name of this restaurant. Juro means 'PORK' (in Mandarin) and easy to remember. He greets us with a warm welcome and great smiles, prepared mouth watering porky meal for all of us with more then 10 dishes in the menu. Wow!

Mushroom soup - Very thick texture of the mushroom soup and dip with the crispy garlic bread. Tasty!

Ham and Bacon Soup - Good appetizer to start off our meal with flavourful creamy soup with the crispy garlic bread. The ham and bacon is cut into smaller pieces and the saltiness of the bacon blends well with the soup taste.

Ice lemon tea, simple drink but taste good with sour taste to opens up my appetite

Lychee Salad - Never try this combination before. Interesting and the lychee taste is sweet and cold layered with mayonnaise.

Bacon Salad - Thousand island salad dressing tossed appetizers along with slices of crispy bacon. Mixture of the fresh vegetables with tomatoes, cucumbers, capsicums and onions Taste good!
We kick start the gastronomical journey with this German Pork Knuckle.The pork knuckle is very big portion and the skin is really crispy.The meat is tender and juicy inside, generously served with the house sauces.The whole plate is surrounds with a colorfully  vegetables  and i am addictive to this pork knuckle. Thumbs Up!

German Pork Sausage Platter is reasonably impressive! The huge Pork Sausage Platter comes with varieties of the juicy grilled pork sausages such as the German cheesy sausages, German Bratwurst, smoked sausage, and BBQ sausages.  The large portion of each sausages is perfect for sharing for more than 3 persons. Extremely meaty and grilled to perfection of each sausages, with house brown sauce, and creamy potato salad.. On the bottom is served with the crispy french fries. Delicious!

Texas BBQ Baby Back Rib - This is also one of the restaurant specialties. The BBQ pork rib is well marinated and grilled to perfection with little burnt on the side, served with house special BBQ sauce. Savory with tender, juicy & and smokey baby back ribs with the meat detaching from the bone so easily.Highly recommended!
Pork Belly - Delectable pork belly which is the best part of the pig and the pork belly is so juicy with boneless meat and served with generous portion of the crispy fries.




Spaghetti Carbonara with Ham and Bacon- one of my favourite pasta. I do not like much on the carbonara taste, but in Juro, i can taste the smokey and crispy ham blends well with the creamy pasta. Not too cheesy just right to my taste bud. Love the taste!


Grilled Chicken Chop - The chicken skin is really crispy and the meat inside is juicy. Served with the french fries and i love this dish so much.There are 3 choices of the sauces which is BBQ,mushroom and black pepper.This is one of the best selling item.
Spaghetti Aglio Olio- This serving of pasta looks familiar and the usual traditional Italian pasta which i can find in other places. Tossed with the garlic and olive oil with the mixture of  the herbs and spices enhance the flavour of the pasta.

Ham Steak - Tantalizing bacon ham steak with really extraordinary size. This smokey and aromatic ham steak is delicious with special sauce and grilled to perfection. I never seen such a huge size of the ham steak and really appreciate the generosity of the owner for letting us to have this exotic ham steak.

Ham Steak is really tasty, a little saltiness and so thick layer.

Muffin with chocolate ice cream- This sinful desserts is sweet enough and i seldom find this way of eating  muffin with cold ice cream.Yummy!

Homemade pudding flavours include kiwi, and strawberry flavours. 

Aromatic coffee to chill out.

Juro menu with offering of 10 percent discount provided for all main.
 Juro Restaurant is selling to retailer and here have their own local manufacturing of the pork meat.In the large hypermarket like Tesco can find this meaty product as well.

The meats are all very fresh made direct from the factory owned by the restaurant owner.
