The spread of delicious Korean dishes at Daorae; they should have ushered us to a bigger table earlier. They probably did not foresee the impending madness that ensued; food enough for 4-5 pax maybe?
Coincidentally, my first Daorae Korean BBQ experience was another ‘threesome’ at work. No, we did not participate in hot, sweaty and explicit physical exchanges (or union of bodies?). But one not-so-fat monkey and that cheeky gym rat carted this Motormouth off on an excursion to everywhere but the intended destination. Haha …. to imagine we were supposed to go for tea at FRIM in Kepong, only to change to Sumi-Ka for yakitori (ahem, and since they open from 6pm onwards, it does not make sense to camp and wait for half a day more?), and finally a brilliant contingency plan to shift to Mr Mak’s Fish Head Noodles at USJ.
But lo and behold, Kopitiam Que Up chose to be closed on a Saturday afternoon. How (in)convenient. And that after witnessing some reckless driver flying off the divider and crashing into the middle of the roundabout at Subang Jaya; causing the traffic to come to a standstill on most roads leading to and away from that spot.
And if you’ve been driving in Malaysia for long (Klang Valley especially), you can’t help but realize that our generic pastime/custom/tradition is to slow down whenever a mishap on the road happen, and either jot down the plate number, look and see whether you know the poor creatures, OR plain kay-poh-chee and look-look-see-see for the fun of it. Furthermore, punctuality has never been one of our forte to begin with.
Chew on some tongues and grilled raw garlic for that extra punch.
And so, after suffering the almost an hour’s ordeal of warping all around Subang Jaya without successfully feeding these 3 hollowed stomachs, we settled for Korean food at Daorae in Taipan USJ. Already in half-famine states, we rushed up the elevator (which was smelling like some sweat socks …. I did not coin this, the Monkey did!) and thanks-be-to-the-gastronomic-lord-from-above for Daorae’s operating in full swing that afternoon! Read the rest of this entry »
