Besides buying spa vouchers for my both my parents, we brought her to dine at Myung Pum Korean Chicken BBQ restaurant at Sri Hartamas. It was the first time for all of us.
Located close to Finnegan's Irish Pub (one of the popular landmark in Hartamas), Myung Pum is a corner lot with ample space hence they have both indoor and outdoor seating.
Weather has been extremely hot lately so my family strongly opposed to the idea of being seated outdoor so we chose indoor instead. And I don't think it's a very good idea either.
It's a freaking BBQ restaurant and if a barbecue restaurant doesn't have proper ventilation or aircon isn't cold enough, everyone ended up smelling like a human bbq with sauce (sweat) wtf. Myung Pum clearly lacks of both :(
Look at my wet fringe! That's how much I sweated when I just got into the shop! I'm a person who's really cannot stand heat T_T
Both of them always give the same smile and pose. Unconsciously! Awesome or what?? LOL!
Unlike other Korean bbq restaurant that I've been to, they have this HUGE barbecue hot plate in the middle of the table.
Only 2 ban chans were served. How miserable T_T And I dislike both although my family likes it.
I absolutely love Korean food so I have higher expectation and taste bud whenever I visit to a Korean restaurant. I'm not going to be lenient with my opinions on the Korean food. NO.
Comes in either Original or Spicy. Brother ordered for 2 pax so he chose both 'Original' and 'Spicy'. Since everything got mixed together, I have no idea how 'Original' tastes like.
We were initially being served by the extremely friendly and pretty ladyboss before she left to attend the cash register and her staff came to serve us. One of the reason why I love dining at a Korean restaurant is because the staff are well trained to be polite and friendly just like the Korean culture ^^
"Dak-Galbi, marinated with Korean secret red pepper sauce and cooked right on the table with mountain of veggies, sweet potato, boneless chicken and Korean rice cake." (as quoted from their name card)
Although the taste isn't as strong as marinated kimchi (slightly milder), but I still like it. Especially the veggies and chicken that stick at the bottom of the hot plate taste much, much better hahahaha!
It's might be a little spicy for those who can't take spicy food though. But just nice for my liking considering that I loveeee spicy food! :)
Marinated chicken with hearty veggies & luxurious Korean glass noodles! First and only ONE place in Malaysia serving this exclusive dish! Must try! (quoted from their name card again)
Andong steamed chicken is one of their signature dish, along with Dak-Galbi. This was my favourite dish that night! I can't help but to keep eating the glass noodles as it goes very well with the sauce :p The dish may taste similar to Chinese dishes but I don't care!!! It's tasty!!
To be honest. I don't like it because I dislike spring onions and the whole pan cake is being "decorated" with it wtf. If you are okay with spring onions, you'll like this dish like my family does because they even whacked my share -_-
I tried and find nothing special about it. It tastes similar to fried egg with onions and chillies that I cook at home.
Sam Ge Tang is simply too.... bland. It's great that they didn't add in any salt so it's really healthy but a bit too bland for my brothers liking. Hardly any taste of the ginseng.
Since my mum and I are both soup maniac, both of us finished it all. We are okay with the taste but yes, this is not the best Sam Ge Tang that I've had.
There aren't many choices/selections for you to choose from their menu. Food was okay (average) and price is reasonable. Place is a little stuffy and hot. Service is extremelyyyyy good!
Similarly, if you want to dine at a good Korean restaurant, you may want to give Little Korea at Solaris a try. Or maybe Daorae (they have a few branches, pls google yourself!) that's not too far away from Myung Pum.
I was being informed that Myung Pum is non-halal as they are serving pork now. Sorry to all Muslim readers! :(

My colleagues once recommended this Korean restaurant in ss2 to me saying that it's worth a try. Maybe I shall give it a shot and share with you guys next time! ;)
