Back to the story, this is my second visit to Korean Village and I went there with my another two food hunting friends. We drive off from Petaling Jaya at around 6.15pm and managed to reach there around 7.30pm due to the heavy traffic after working time. One of my friend who is the Ampang local lead us to the Korean Village and recommend 우가촌 Woo Ga Chon (牛家村） - an authentic Korean Restaurant where my friend dined there before for several times.

I just had some Korea food last two weeks and here I go for Korea food again. I looked through the menu and the displayed food photo attracting me. Whenever I go for Korean restaurant for its very first time, I would really like to try their Kimchi soup - the traditional and routine food of Korean. However, the restaurant is famous for its beef set as well. I'm a beef lover and I wished to try it too. Therefore, I ordered the Kimchi soup set and my friend ordered beef set, so that I can try both :) Besides that, my another friend order mixed vegetable rice. The food are very tasty and authentic. For the Korean lover, you are worth to pay a visit here. Thank friend for the recommendation too.
My order: Kim Chi Jji Gae @ RM15
Kim-chi soup. Most popular Korean traditional food, It cook together with kim-chi, taufu, various vegetable and some meat. It served with a bowl of Korean rice.
Friend's order: Dol Sot Bi Bim Bap @ RM18
Rice with assorted vegetables on top and mix it with Korean red pepper sauce. It served in hot stone pot.
Friend's order: Bul Go Gi @ RM20
Beef marinated in soy sauce and it served with rice and several side dishes.
The side dishes come together with Bul Go Gi set and they are refillable!

The restaurant is not big but it has two dining sections, one is open and one is closed section. Other than that, the restaurant is very authentic in Koren style regardless the environment or decoration. Korean words are all around and you are hardly to find other languages here.

Even the receipt with some Korean word too.
During my degree study, me and one of the friend attended Korean class for a semester. We used to practice Korean during or even after class. We can talk in Korean for some simple conversations and read majority of the Korean word even we can't understand the meaning. However, we hardly refresh the Korean language now due to lack of practicing in daily life.
After the dinner, we went for nearby Korea mini market and bakery shop hanging around. In the mini market, most of the food are Korean food. I spotted some mini drink bottles that attract my attention. If I were in Korea, definitely I will buy some for trying but not in Malaysia. Hopefully I can travel to Korea in one day (Opps, Korea so far is not in my travel list xD.
What can you spot? Starbucks?
Before we drive back to Petaling Jaya, we went to our friend house for a visit which is also the main purpose of us heading to Ampang. This is my second visit to his house after the last reunion visit. Me and my friend would like to borrow tent from him. I never experience camping before (actually I did before during secondary school time but memory is fuzzy) and hopefully the tent can be "useable" for upcoming trip if the planning is on.

Kick start the month of August with some good food and goodbye to my supposedly month of Lucky July. Hopefully this month will be a smooth and motivated month so that I can complete my task on time.

To stay with happy,
Let go the sadness.
