Korean food devotees should not be new to the name- Palsaik... the Korean restaurant is well-established in central Malaysia and has 7 branches across the nation. It should not be hard to notice the Korean restaurant; if you have walked past the al-fresco area of Sky Avenue, you would have noticed this high-floor restaurant. The place is usually packed with patrons on evenings but relatively quieter during day time. Palsaik is known for its barbecue items but it does offer ala-carte menu as well; prices are on the higher side but it can be a rather enjoyable moment when grilling meat and find yourself surrounded in a cool, chilly weather. We did not manage to try their barbecue items but for those that we have had, we thought they were disappointingly average.
Seafood Soup (Rm 39) with Ramen Noodles (Rm 8)
Tteokbokki (Rm 28)
Cold Buckwheat Noodles (Rm 22)
We had the Seafood Soup, served in the form of Hot Pot. The Soup was veering towards the salty side and the Seafood could be fresher. There was a dollop of Korean Chili Paste at the bottom of the soup so as soon as it was boiled, it turned red. We were most disappointed with Tteokbokki, the texture was soft and soggy (as opposed to the addictive-chewy texture). The sauce did not manage to 'wow' us either and for the fact that it was Rm 28, we thought it was overpriced (if you are a huge fan of Korean food, you would have noticed the symbolic Hard Boiled Egg was missing). Equally disappointing was Cold Buckwheat Noodles, the texture was oddly soft and they were overly generous with the Gochujang sauce... it overpowered and ruined the entire dish. We struggled to finish the dish.
