Not to worry, we’ve compiled a list of the best Korean restaurants in PJ, so you don’t have to!
Eid Authentic Korean Cuisine (Halal)
Pork is a common element in many Korean meals; hence many Korean eateries in the market are non-Halal. The cuisine served at Eid Authentic Korean Cuisine is certified Halal, ensuring that it is suitable for consumption by all Muslims. Bibimbap, rayon, fried chicken, and many more genuine Halal Korean delicacies are available. Korean street cuisine such as cheesy corndogs and dumplings are also available.

Mido Korean BBQ Restaurant
The interior of Mido Korean BBQ Restaurant is stunning. There is a lot of attention to detail in the design of the building, from the entryway to the inside. This is especially true for their grill, which is why charcoal has always been preferred over normal induction or gas. It’s also possible to pick from a large range of marinades to go along with the meat, but keep in mind that they’re not exactly inexpensive. There are also the normal selections of side dishes, nothing too extravagant. If you like high-quality smoked pork, this is a must-see.
