Han Wa Dam Modern Korean Grill @ Manara Hup Seng, Kuala Lumpur.

One of the greatest things about Korean barbecue would be the fun, shareable joy is to freshly grill the meat and enjoy with different types of seasoning and condiments; better if served with boozy Soju (Korean distilled rice liquor). Strategically located in the heart of Kuala Lumpur city and housed within Menara Hup Seng, Han Wa Dam Modern Korean Grill has since garnered an appreciate following since its opening few years ago. The Korean restaurant specializes in offering Korean grills (with premium cuts)... but the kitchen also highlights delicious Korean dishes like stews and rice dishes (as well as the flashy seasonal Ban Chan of course).  Like a classic Korean restaurant, Han Wa Dam offers privacy and spacious dining space to diners- tables are well-spaced and each outfitted with barbecue burner. There will be dedicated servers to do the grilling, the personalized service is to ensure diners are getting the best quality of meat. It is noteworthy that Han Wa Dam is a pork-free restaurant.

Many Thanks to Han Wa Dam for hosting us that evening.

It's not easy to navigate the menu due to the vast selection but if you are a meat lover, the selection of premium cuts is a must- from the fresh, unseasoned meat to self-marinated cuts as well as well-aged steak, Han Wa Dam has got you covered. Nevertheless, classic dishes continue to please... definitely a great choice to fix your Korean cravings.

Aged Ribeye (Rm 120)

Marinated Beef Ribs (Rm 90)

Boneless Prime Short Ribs (Rm 110)

Prime Beef Belly On Hot Pan (Rm 80)

White Hot Pot Mille Feuille Nabe with Beef Belly and Cabbage (Rm 98)

Jumbo Beef Short Ribs Clear Soup (Rm 39)

The complimentary Ban Chans are carefully selected to pair with your selection. Diners having barbecue items will have a different set of Ban Chan while there are other combinations of Ban Chan for those going for the usual Korean menu. The Boneless Prime Short Ribs and Marinated Beef Ribs are cautiously grilled over coal fire; the former choice offers a meaty but clean beefy taste while the latter option has a delicate sweetness to it (due to the marination). Otherwise, the whole slab of aged Steak would be a good alternative either. The well-aged Ribeye is seared over cast iron instead of grill... giving it a more even consistent crust to the steak (better distribution of heat). Seasonings available for the meat include Smoky Sea Salt, Korean Soy Bean Paste and Dijon Mustard. 

To complete the meal with a comfortable soupy end, go for either White Hot Pot Mille Feuille Nabe or Jumbo Beef Short Ribs Clear Soup; both offering different flavors and pleasure. Apart from eye-pleasing, the Hot Pot rolls out a hefty amount of meat... sandwiching by Chinese Cabbage and topped with Shimeiji Mushrooms. The broth has a clean, easy-on-the-palate flavor with minimal seasoning; when everything sets in, the flavor gets thicker and it's the type of broth that one would love to drink on a regular basis. Jumbo Beef Short Ribs Clear Soup on the other hand, offers a more Korean experience. The broth is richer in flavor and the specially handpicked Short Ribs offers a dangerously addictive, crunchy texture; served piping hot, the boldly flavored broth and the satisfying meat would be the best thing to have under chilly weather... not to mention the delicious Ban Chan and boozy Soju treat.
