Nak Won @ Danau Desa

Laid my thoughts on having a Korean meal for quite some time and it happened that mom suggested that all of us should give this place a go. Nak Won, it was named, sited at Taman Desa. “Korean Traditional Cuisine & BBQ”….. written on its brochure with many delicious depictions of the variety and colourful dishes.
I’m even more delighted to try as I’m kinda keen on Korean BBQ.

What are exceptional about eating out at a Korean restaurant are the side dishes that’ll serve upon you. Lots and lots of them for you to find relish in 🙂
From preserved and pickled cabbages such as kimchis to mushrooms and eggs, these multiple appetizers sure did a good job boosting our cravings for the barbecued food.

This is only one side of the table. The side dishes were laid all around!
All of these are complimentary!!

Garden-fresh greenery to wrap up the side dishes.

Different types of flavour enhancing mediators: the sauces 🙂

Let’s get the charcoal stove all warmed up and ready to grill! And the best part was, you wouldn’t have to move a muscle. The staffs here will do all the grilling process and we’re just assigned the eating procedure 🙂

What’s grilling?
3 ply Pork Belly Barbeque. The meats were easy to cut and chew. What more could you say when the meat are char-grilled? Aromatic! RM23 per pax.

Unagi Barbeque. The eel was marinated earlier and when heated and grilled, the thick sauce drizzling over the meat created the ‘it’ factor 🙂 Priced at RM40 per pax.

Our favourite and they finished fast! The Marinated Boneless Rib Barbeque was the most scrumptious one. The marinated beef ribs were so juicy and tender. Flavoursome and wholesome when eaten with the onion. Thumbs up! Priced at RM49 per pax.

Cuttlefish Barbeque with Korean Sauce was another chewy item to savour. This was priced at RM35 per pax.

Other dishes:
Mixed Rice with Assorted Vegetables served in Hot Stone Bowl was another wholesome preparation. A healthy portion to be shared among ourselves with great flavours and it was presented beautifully. Despite it being all vege, it was yummy! Compliments to the chef! Priced at RM15.

We also had the Dumpling Soup for RM18. Containing garlic chives and pork, these were cooked in a throat-soothing broth!

The Seafood Pancake was priced at RM25. It’s an omelette containing prawns, crabsticks and garlic chives. Kinda crispy on the outer layer and at the same time, a lil’ spongy inside.

Complimentary dishes:
Apart from the side dishes that were complimentary, these were too!

Steamed Egg in Hot Stone Pot (we had 2)
With resemblance from a chawanmushi, this was a bigger serving. The eggs were again, silky smooth and laid down with ingredients that fit this preparation. Very delicate.

Dessert: I’m not sure what it’s called, but it tasted like Bali juice to me 😛

The total bill came up to about RM250 for 7 persons and considering the food and complimentary dishes they offer, it’s worth it!
Check this place out with no regrets! ;P

  2. If I’m not mistaken, the dessert that you had is sikhye, Korean rice drink. A lot of bbq meat! Sounds delicious! Didn’t know there’s a branch in Taman Desa, gonna check it then!

  4. Hi Christine…

    My first time putting a comment on your blog 😛 heheh… Anyway, I’ve also tried Korean food once somewhere along Jalan Sultan Ismail. I was quite amused by the array of side dishes served. It was impossible to finish them!

    I also noted that Korean cuisine has a bigger proportion of vegetables as compared to meat! Any reason for this?

    At the end of the meal, we were served with a drink that was similar to that in the picture you have shown. Mine was called Ginger and Rice Water Juice.


  5. the dumpling was so tempting

  6. Your mom sure know how to enjoy food 🙂

  7. oink oink *eyes the large slabs of pork bellies* Wow the feast does look traditionally Korean

  8. the Marinated Boneless Rib Barbeque looks so good…and for 7 people, the price is ok…got people serve you somemore…i wonder if the staff is like daejanggum, complete with the hanbok..hehe…

    sugar bean~
    Yeah! there are some rice in it! Thanks for the info! and go visit them.. 🙂

    xiu long bao~
    haha.. Luckily my hair did not smell like it the time I went… ;P

    Hey gal!!
    You could drop by more often!
    Heard that Koreans eat a lot healthier food than we do, perhaps they emphasize on veges more 😉

    and the drink,.. the we had has no ginger in it 🙂 Just the rice.

    Thisha, maybe we could have a Korean meal together before I go off!! Miss ya! ^^

    it was kinda big too.. 🙂 full of fillings ;P

    I must say…. yeah, she does! 😉

    I’m overwhelmed by the food. An all Korean feast 😉
    You wanna try? ^^

    the rib.. It was my favourite! So super tasty! and the staffs, nothing like daejanggum… haha, maybe they could put on the costumes and it’ll be better ^^

    yea yea.. related. It was before and after. The after ones being grilled and cut into smaller bits by the staffs who served us 🙂

    you’re right 🙂
    Better to go in a bigger group to try more variety and more… ‘tai’! 😉

    They’re charged like that.. Perhaps they calculate for something like per serving / portion. The price were written there 🙂
    You could ask the staff on how many servings you should have depending on the number of people ^^
    Hope you’ll enjoy!

  13. I especially like to roll a piece of bbq pork and grilled garlic in lettuce. Of course not forgetting to put the special paste first. Yummy.

  18. ~Christine~Leng says: Reply

    wow.. sure know how to enjoy the food! Sounds so.. tempting! 😉

    Yea… maybe they should write per plate instead ;P
    Perhaps they intend to show us the price of per portion..
    Dorae’s portion gone smaller? I plan to try Dorae soon 😉 can do comparison after that ^^

    you can count me in as well 😉

    yea, it’s pretty cheap considering the variety of food that we had 🙂
    Maybe you can bring your friends or family over here for a nice and worthy meal 🙂

    It does, doesn’t it?
    The texture and taste was superb I must say.. ^^

  19. Mayb this korean restaurant were better previously. Went to the place today. Not many customers but hardly anyone to serve you. They never refill drink. Our soup was left hanging until we remind them. Pancake was on the other table until we remind them to bring to our table.

    RM5/rice & RM3/green tea. They sure give you lots of cheap sidedish. Have a feeling the owner did precise calculate to cheat customers. there are lots of better korean restaurant around. This sure sucks big time.
