I can find Korean cuisines easily at Ampang Korean Village and mostly all served the same traditional BBQ grilled on the stove with varieties of meats and seems like nothing special. 

Recently, a friend of mine shared this page from Facebook introducing a distinctive Korean restaurant that serves both BBQ and steamboat. From the website, it stated that business opens in May 2014 (which is quite new) and they want to bring this delectable dining experience with both combination in a relax homey environment for customers. 688 Korean BBQ Restaurant use Imported Quality beef from American and lamb from Australia, surely guarantees the quality and worth the value. 

I love the seating arrangement with comfortable dining place and wide area.  Service is impeccable and prompt to your response. Although is BBQ and Steamboat combination, no sweat to enjoy the meal. All the recipe is prepared by their renowned chef, Han Myeong Su  and he can make your meal with different level of  spiciness of your choice to meet your satisfaction.

Surrounds with the Korean egg, Kimchi and garlic on the side.
New addition that is going into the menu soon - Pork Belly Slice

We have almost 10-12 banchan side dishes that includes spicy kimchi, mushroom, cockles, spinach, marinated cucumbers, anchovies, vegetables and Japanese pickles. Good serving and generous portion of the appetizers and unlimited refill as long as you can finish it all. 

We can choose the soup based. These are chicken soup. 

Seafood Soup - Although looks plain, but the taste is really good even before I put in the seafood and other ingredients
Steamboat Couple set for 2 pax (RM 38) -  Fresh and high quality ingredients. Here we can try their Korean homemade sausage roll, handmade fish noodles, handmade fish roll and etc. With this set, we can have two choices of soup - chicken soup and seafood soup

The soup is convenient placed at each seats. We can control the heat and this way is more hygienic as well. 

Compliments to the Fresh lettuce given to wrap the BBQ meats. Those are big sizes
Ala Carte menu choices

The staff will help us to grilled the meat. Starting with the Pork rib meat.

The seafood is fresh and the choices change from time to time. 

Complimentary drinking water provided and kids cutlery also

Korean Handmade Taufu - RM 15

Absolutely delicate pork rib, juicy and tender. 

Rarely found this sizes..Korean special handmade fish noodle.. 
We ordered additional Korean Ginseng Soup - I wish the taste is stronger with ginseng, somehow it turns out bland.

We move on to grill the pork belly slice. Each pieces is cut into thin slices and only needs 2 minutes to grill it. 

The pork is delightfully crispy and flavourful

The side dishes is cooked and we can start to take it out now before it gets burnt

Dak Galbi ( Chicken Marinated BBQ) RM 35- The chicken meat is grilled to perfection, I felt like eating " Cha Siew" The pork meat is soft, succulent and juicy for every bite.

Free ice cream for every customers who dines in. Just nice to end our meal and cooling down after our BBQ session.

Added on with Special Korean tea for some light digestion

We enjoy the sumptuous meal and the most happy moments is to see the whole table is full of food!!!.. It's our first experience dining in with both combination of BBQ and Steamboat Korean Restaurant. I find it very unique and family with kids can have more choices on the steamboat selection and adults can enjoy the spice from the Kimchi and BBQ dish. 
Thanks again for this food tasting session.
