The Pork Only Specialist Buffet @ Dae Bak Korean BBQ
Dae Bak Korean BBQ (formerly known as San Nae Deul) offers a range of Korean Cuisines in ala carte or set meal. The restaurant is currently having BBQ buffet promotion for the month thus this is a very good opportunity to try it out.
This time around, there is two type of buffet to choose from- Pork Buffet, RM 38.00 (all variety of pork) and Meat + Seafood Buffet, RM 48.00 (pork, chicken, beef, lamb and variety of seafood)
The RM48.00 per pax buffet comes with unlimited refill banchan – kimchi soup, kimchi, seasoned eggplant, stir-fry egg gourd, seasoned long beans, chilli fishcake and steam rice. Banchan tastes awful, especially the vegetable type. The texture was wet and mushy due to either a bad food handling technique or bad overnight storage procedure in the refrigerator.
The buffet offers some variety of cuts for BBQ – pork neck, pork belly, marinated beef, marinated lamb, and marinated spicy chicken. Meat served were frozen. After grill, lamb and beef have a chewy and dry texture. Chicken isn’t that great but was ok. The pork was good.
Seafood is a disaster. Comes in a selection of prawn and squid only which was not fresh at all. It even splits in half with a gentle pull. Dae Bak took one step further by surprising us with a heap of reek caustic squid which is totally inedible.
For dessert, Dae Bak buffet offers an assorted Magnolia Ice Cream – comes in all four flavours – chocolate mint, corn, yam and vanilla. A great choice to clears the palate and end a disastrous meal.
Personally would recommend picking only the Pork Buffet (if you are taking the buffet option) as there is no value add at all opting for the meat + seafood buffet. And the Pork Buffet price is much more affordable too. The extra costs incurred do not justify the additional meat and seafood which was bad in the first place.
