Mr. Dakgalbi, the name literally tells you what it is going to serve in the restaurant. Exactly, dak galbi. Dak Galbi is a local specialty originated from Chuncheon, Gangwon Province in Korea, hence it is also called Chuncheon dak galbi.
This popular Korean dish involves stir frying of diced chicken in gochujang based sauce with cabbage, rice cake, sweet potato, scallions, onions and ggaennip together on a hot plate. Noodles and rice can be added in later depends on individual.
Mr. Dakgalbi, with 30 years of know-how on the basis of gochujang, can definitely present a delicious serving of dak galbi right in front of your eyes. The franchise has swept their name across China and Korea, finally landed in Malaysia in September last year with branches in SOHO KL Solaris Mont Kiara, Bukit Bintang and Setaiwalk Puchong.
There are four types of Dakgalbi to choose from, where the most basic is Mr. Dakgalbi which consists of marinated chicken with korean chilli sauce and mixed vegetables. Bean sprouts, octopus and seafood can be added atop of Mr. Dakgalbi for a more plentiful platter.
Staff at Mr. Dakgalbi will do the stir frying job, so all you need is just lay back, witness the whole process while getting your saliva drops as the spicy aroma fill the air, then starts whispering to each other “We are so hungry, how long he needs to stir fry still?”
Chicken marinated with gochujang based sauce is first thrown into the hot stone pot, followed by vegetables and rice cake. Add in ramen and more sauce by the end of the stir frying and violaa! Is ready to eat.
Presentation is messy, but who cares when it tastes so good. We tuck in one mouthful after another, truly enjoying the spicy, creamy, sticky and sweet flavour which is gracefully coated on every inch of the ingredients. A pleasant concoction that whet up the appetite, yet not overly spicy.
As we finished 3/4 of your Dakgalbi, the staff will have these leftover dakgalbi cut into extra small bites then stir fried with rice and Korean chilli sauce. The final product is not a usual pile of fried rice, but a very thin layer of pancake- like fried rice. The staff said: eat your fried rice the pizza way. Slightly crisp at the outside, with melting cheesiness oozing from the inside. Good, but still, we prefer our usual tom yam fried rice from Dai Chao stall.
