Seoul Garden


First time trying the Korean Hotplate Steamboat and it was really superb!! Im not sure whether they have branch in KL but i’ve heard b4 that they have in S’pore.

What really amazed me is the spice they used to marinate the chickens, beef, lamb as well and not to forget their squid. Wide range of food no doubt … the picture taken were just part of the stuff … the remaining is ice kacang (self-service), cendol, ice creams, fried korean snacks … Besides, the sauces they made compliments the bbq meat nicely!!

Hotplate Steamboat


A tip for u is, don’t go during lunch or dinner hour, u’ll end up lining up outside with hunger pangs … the tantalising smell generated makes u hungry to the max! Another good point is they provide very fresh food …

  27. Alfian Abdul Halin Says:

    Hi all…

    just would like to give some points about the Halal (or some spell it Halaal) thinggy.
    as many of you might know, Halal means food or any other consumables that Muslims can… well, consume…
    according to the rules of their religion, Islam.

    For starters, of course halal means pork free ๐Ÿ™‚ But it goes beyond that.
    Besides pork, there are also other animals and food-ingredients that are non permissible.
    Some examples are:

    1) Pork derived products (and also of course dog derived… but not to worry as not many people eat dogs (openly) in Malaysia… heard of a place in the darker sides of KL that did this… but maybe just an urban legend)… or any hybrid or clones from either 2 what soever ๐Ÿ™‚

    2) Alcohol … there is some literature/scientific Islamic research that allows a certain percentage of alcohol in medicine. But I am not sure whether its allowed at all in food. From what I know, alcoholic beverages, and coking wine etc, are not halal (haram is the opposite of halal, just FYI)

    3) Animals (including cow, sheep, chicken etc.) that are not slaughtered the Islamic way… basically, to be halal, the
    slaughtering process must have…:
    a) The person doing the slaughtering must be Muslim
    b) Must follow the rules of slaughtering, whereby the two main veins (called halkum and merih in malay… not sure bout
    the English translations) must be severed
    c) In a pure environment where the animals do not come in contact with pigs or dogs…

    4) The food in question must be prepared using permissible ingredients and the correct way:
    a) Ones not containing non halal derived elements (e.g. pork derived, or even cow (or any other halal animal) derived
    where the animal was not slaughtered the Islamic way)
    – For example… the use of animal (e.g. COW) gelatin in some sweets etc. If the cow was slaughtered the Islamic
    way, and then gelatine was derived from it… then it should be OK ๐Ÿ™‚

    Well, basically that’s what pops out of my head at the moment ๐Ÿ™‚

    If anyone has any further comments, you can always post a reply ๐Ÿ™‚ or even email me at
    alfianupm AT gmail DOT com ๐Ÿ™‚

    Ok. Cheerios!

  28. kebab Says:

    It’s stated HALAL , no pork served but how the food is processed (E.G: chickens slaughtered by muslim) or the ingredients that goes innit stays UNCLEAR. Just don’t hesitate and you’ll be fine. I’ve been to Seoul Garden at One Utama, The food is great but the place seems crammed at peak hours, the arrangement of tables maybe. The Buffet during ramadhan is great, they never ran out of fresh supplies. Altough the day that i went there, the Ice Kacang (A.B.C) machine didn’t work at all and to make things worst they left the abc condiments and ingredients on the dressing table just for you to see. ๐Ÿ™ i got creatved and eat my ice cream with kacang, jagung and cendol instead of actual blended ice.

    Howdy, your site is on air in the radio! Good job mate. Your posts are truly great and bookmarked. Regards

  34. faezal Says:

    i ran across this website:
    it seems that Seoul Garden at Plaza Gurney in Penang serves pork. it is kind of confusing how the same brand restaurant have different halal status, and serves different food..

  35. Lepixie Says:

    hi faezal, i’m sorry but i think you’ve got some wrong info up there ๐Ÿ™‚
    the link that you gave us were talking about a completely different restaurant. Gurney Plaza’s Seoul Garden is halal, the certificate is from Jakim. The one that serves pork is another restaurant with the same name (but not of the same branch); it is at Sunrise Tower. Hope this helps ๐Ÿ™‚

  36. Sha Says:

    Hi guys, about the Halal status, I’ve checked it in Jabatan Hal Ehwal Agama Islam Pulau Pinang (JAIP), the status is Seoul Garden received Halal Certificate and the cert valid until this 30 January 2011. If you want to check it on your own, here is the link
