Aza Aza Starvil Korean Restaurant is not new, in fact, it has been around for at least a few years. Korean food lovers should not be new to the name, the place is most popular amongst the workers working in industrial zone. Aza Aza offers barbecue items, alongside with an array of Korean delights like Bibimbap, Tteokbokki, Kimchi-jigae etc; though the prices are pretty standard-average, the serving portion seems to be larger than its competitors. Another plus here is the serving speed, which caters perfectly for the working class... in rush of lunch hours. More like a place for quick fix in lieu of absolute taste.
Dolsot Bibimbap (Rm 18.90)
Pajeon (Rm 13.90)
Rabokki (Rm 29.90)
Japchae (Rm 22.90)
Aza Aza's Dolsot Bibimbap was quite good, they brilliantly added a handful of crunchy greens to it, so the entire texture was lighter but more dimensional. There were bits of Pork Belly there but it did not matter, the concoction was more flavorful and satisfying. The remaining dishes were disappointing though. The Japchae was amazingly greasy, the Korean Glass Noodles were overcooked either. The texture was too soft to our liking and the oil-factor was bothering us; we struggled to finish the dish. Equally disappointing was Rabokki, a blend of Tteokbokki and Ramyun (Korean Ramen). The Rice Cakes were overcooked and the Ramyun was slouchily soaked in the sauce, making it impossible to finish it entirely by one diner. The Pajeon was just.... meh.
