Intermark presents "Onsemiro" (located on the 2nd floor), a new Korean restaurant that celebrates authentic Korean food along with wooden decor that will fool you into thinking that you have actually traveled a thousand miles to Korea.
At the table, you will be greeted by a seductive mix of Banchan.
Lightly parboiled spinach dressed with sesame oil, red pepper and light soy sauce
Charcoals from Korea
LA Galbi 200g (RM70) - These sweet, tender marinated beef slices flourished well with some lettuces and spicy dipping sauce. For more kick, add a glove of garlic onto your green wrap.
Raw egg for the Yukhoe Bibimbap
Yukhoe Bibimbap (RM45) - Yukhoe Bibimbap which literally means "raw mixed rice", was served with shredded raw beef, topped with a variety of seasoned vegetables and gochujang (chili pepper paste).
Unlike the jasmine rice we usually have, Korean rice has a chewier texture and a shinier look.
Golbaengi Muchim (RM45) - Spicy freshwater snails and thin noodles are an enduring Korean duo. Here, there were treated right with gochujang sauce and accented by some sliced cucumber and sesame oil.
Gwang Yang Bulgogi 120g (RM50) - The succulent sirloin beef was extremely lean and was grilled to perfection using the aromatic Korean charcoal.
Kimchi Jjigae - Served in a superheated stoned pot, a bowl of rice is mixed into it, bringing down the tartness of the kimchi as it cooks along with some sardines, tofu, cabbages and spring onions.
More Banchan to provide some relief from the richness of the food
Yeolmu kimchi seasoned with chili peppers and salt.
Crunchy kimchi cabbage
The frozen persimmon was amazingly delicious with texture that resembled a sorbet.
VERDICT: SOMEWHAT SMITTEN
