Sarong Korean Restaurant (Yam Yam Chicken)

Sarong Korea Restaurant, an authentic Korean restaurant, famous for their home-recipe chicken is located at Batu Bersurat. Along the same stretch as Soon Lee Supermart. You can’t miss it, as it has a striking pink signboard. It used to be known as Yam Yam Chicken, when it was first opened few years back in Kiarong (a residential district) with a home-restaurant concept.

The restaurant at Batu Bersurat is nicely furnished with dark wood furniture with dimly-lighted orange lights. Warm and classic. There aren’t many tables available, however, I’m rather surprise that it’s nearly full even on a Monday night. Looking at the menu, they serve all authentic traditional Korean dishes, ingredients said to be imported from Korea. In addition, they have their own unique chicken recipe for their Fried Chicken, Yang-nyeom Chicken, Gan-jang Chicken and Bul-dak Chicken.

Here’s what we’ve ordered for the night.

Fried chicken, yang-nyeon chicken and ganjang chicken - Sarong Korean Restaurant

Fried chicken, yang-nyeon chicken and gan-jang chicken

The Yam Yam Korean fried chicken is cooked with 17 different ingredients and Gan-Jang Chicken is marinated with 22 different ingredients, all of which are carefully picked and some imported from Korea. We made a special order to include three different types of Yam Yam Chicken in a plate instead of their combo set. Top left is Gan-jang, top right is Yang-Nyeon and bottom three pieces is Fried. My best pick is the Fried Chicken. Although fried chicken can easily be found in many places, the ones served here at Yam Yam is really tastier, living up to it’s name. Yang-nyeon and Gan-jang chicken is flavorful too, but i prefer to keep my chicken dry after fried and served with crispy skin.

Jap chae is stir-fried potato noodles with vegetables. It’s a traditional dish with high nutritional value, which was served to the King in the olden days. The texture of the noodles is springy and tasty.

Kim chi jji gae / kimchi stew - Sarong Korean Restaurant

Kim chi jji gae / kimchi stew

Kimchi jjigae is the traditional Korean stew-like hotpot soup made with kimchi, tuna and tobu. The color of the soup might look very spicy, but it’s actually not. It taste a little like the Chinese hot and sour soup. Very appetizing before food.

Gim Bap is actually a simple vegetables and egg sushi. You need a minimum of two rolls in order to have this dish served.

I love this drink. It’s made of rice, taste a little similar to barley but smoother in texture.
