Happy Chinese New Year Guys! How did you welcome the Horse year?
Dubu Dubu Seoul Food
I had dire cravings for Kyochon Fried Chicken that day, but sadly, the restaurant was closed for the festive season when I dropped by. It was after all, the second day of CNY. Nevertheless, not letting my hunger persist – there I was, standing in front of Dubu Dubu, for yet another round of Korean food.
Despite being peak dinner time, we managed to snag the last table available, right at the corner of the restaurant, in a cosy, yet chi-chi setting.
Moments later, we were handed a menu. A sneak peak – I noticed that prices came much more affordable than the Korean BBQ Restaurants that I’m somehow more accustomed to nowadays. Apart from its price, I was glad that choices came abundant as well. A friend had Korean BBQ the day before and wanted to shy away from those for awhile. Disappointedly though, my favourite Ojingeo Bokkeum (squid with rice cakes) was no where to be found. On a side note, this place is Halal.
Citron Tea (Rm6.90). Peach Tea (Rm6.90). Barley Tea (Rm3.50).
I would highly recommend the Rm2 add on for a set meal. It comes with three banchans, steamed Korean brown rice, and a bowl of soup. The side dishes are not refillable. What was missing though – my favourite sweetened anchovies.
It was certainly more convenient to have my meal served on a tray. At times, I don’t fancy the idea of fidgeting with the tiny dishes when everything arrived all at once.
Honey Garlic Bulgogi Chicken (Set). Rm17.90.
This was a sweet-sweet success!
Chunks of chicken thigh marinated and stir fried in sweet honey garlic sauce, loaded with bounteous amount of onions and peas-in-a-pack, and topped with a sunny side up. Do not underestimate its portion – there was a whole lot going in there. Value for money I’d say?
Honey Garlic Bulgogi Beef (Set). Rm20.90.
Like the former, the beef version was equally good. Juicy and flavourful slices of beef in sweet honey garlic sauce. The runny yolk added an extra oomph!
Kimchi Gogi Chicken (Set). Rm15.90.
One look at the dish and I thought – what a massive bowl of gogi!
A simple dish of stir fried chicken thigh and cabbage, yet made so gratifying. It tasted a touch different compared to the former, leaning more towards the spicy and sour side, from the kimchi. Withal, this was a pretty satisfying dish as well.

Overall Rating: 7.5/10. For me, this is a decently good and cheap Korean restaurant worthy of visiting. Prices were reasonable, portion came generous and the dishes we sampled were delicious all in all. There is another Korean restaurant located at LG Promenade, Old Wing of 1 Utama, Ko Hyang Country Delights. Used to be one of my favourites but with my newly-found excitement at Dubu Dubu, I may just stick to the double-D’s for now on.
Dubu Dubu is located at:
Lot S345, 2nd Floor, One Utama Shopping Centre, Bandar Utama, 47800 Petaling Jaya
