A Korean friend recommended a Korean restaurant for us to try and the besties suggested that I should check the place out on my birthday. Yes, it was my birthday and they decided to throw me a birthday celebration right here at the Paniya Korean Restaurant
Paniya is easily located as its located right above above Ravi’s at Solaris Mont Kiara. As you drive in the Solaris Mont Kiara area heading towards SOHO KL, you would definitely be about to spot Paniya on your right; an orange signboard with cheerful & colourful wordings that reads PANIYA
Located on the first floor like most Korean restaurants around that area: Little Korea & Gangnam 88, we are about to find out whether we would have a new favourite neighbourhood Korean restaurants or not.
Unlike other Korean BBQ or Teppanyaki restaurants, no hanging ventilators are in sight & they just utilize the air-cond to blow the odours away
Pa Jeon – RM25
We love the Pa Jeon served here. Batter not too thick, great flavours and well spread out with seafood. However, there’s a bit of inconsistency when we ordered the second one as it was a bit too wet for the later order.
Kimchi Jeon – RM25
Korean pancakes at Paniya is recommended and not many places offer good pancakes. But I still prefer the kimchi pancake form Gangnam88
Kong Sam – RM23
Pork belly slices & bean sprouts on griddle. One of the most ordered items on many tables, Kong Sam is also a recommendation from our Korean friend Tender & juicy pork belly slices that compliments the sweet taste from the pile of bean sprouts.
Dak Galbi – RM20
Pan fried chicken, rice cake with cabbage in a little wok, this dak galbi was not tossed with enough taste though. Still can’t be compared to the maga flavours version from Uncle Jang’s Dak Galbi.
Soondae – RM20
Pan fried soondae with mixed vegetables. One of the must order of you love intestines!
Soondae or Sundae, is a famous Korean dish made generally by boiling or steaming cow or pig’s intestines that are stuffed with various ingredients. It resembles our Chinese “lap cheong” or “yun cheong”. Imagine a plate full of flavoursome intestines & other ingredients drenched and pan fried with their special sauces.
Fried Chicken – RM45
Mixed fried boneless chicken (sweet & spicy). Too sweet to our liking
Still not our favourite Korean restaurant yet, but it was lovely to savour Soondae & Kong Sam for the very first time
