Park's Kitchen Korean Restaurant @ Perak Road, Jelutong, Penang.

Nestled in the busiest zone of Jelutong, Park's Kitchen is exactly where you will find inexpensive Korean eats that will satiate your cravings for Korean food. The Korean restaurant manned by a Korean couple has a small menu but covers some of the classic Korean dishes like barbecued Pork, Stews, Tteokbokki, Kimbap and even Korean Fried Chicken... with unbeatable price tags (prices are typically 30-40% lower than other big Korean restaurants in town). The menu is simple but straight-forward, not so fancy that it takes a Korean-literate to understand. Do not expect impeccable, flawless Korean food here but just decent enough to sate your thirst for spicy Korean food.

Spicy Korean Fried Chicken (Rm 12 for 200 grams)

Kimbap (Rm 9.50)

Tteokbokki (Rm 15)

For Rm 21, diners get to enjoy both Tteokbokki and Kimbap as a set. Kimbap tasted fine but the Tteokbokki sauce was a little diluted, as in it was a little watery and not thick enough to cling onto the Korean Rice Cake. Instead of being sweet, it carried a peculiar spiciness and we found out why.... they have included Bird's Eyes Chilies. The Spicy Korean Fried Chicken was not any better either, though the texture was legit, they possessed a peculiar fermented Soy flavor which we were quite fond of. In terms of sweetness and spiciness, we thought they were alright. A little hits and misses but given the wallet-friendly price points, we thought the place is worth-trying, at least for novelty experience.
