Looking for a Muslim friendly, pork-free Korean restaurant to dine in? Here’s one I can recommend: Hwa Ga. Located at level 1 in Empire Damansara, Petaling Jaya.This restaurant offers a wide variety of authentic Korean delicacies with their Nurungji Dak (Korean style stuffed roasted chicken) being their main specialty.
My family and I tried some of the dishes offered on their menu and here’s recommending what’s worth your calories:
Nurungji Cheese Buldak (RM 65).
This is actually a whole roasted chicken stuffed with glutinous rice and topped with cheese and spicy sauce. ‘Nurungji’ refers to a traditional Korean food preparation that involves glutinous rice with roasted chicken. It consists primarily of a whole chicken filled with glutinous rice, black rice, pumpkin seeds, barley, garlic, ginseng, jujube, ginkgo nut and pine nut. The stuffed chicken is slowly roasted in the rotisserie for a two hours for maximum flavours.
Two varieties of Korean fried chicken; the regular and the spicy Korean fried chicken.
Soon Dubu Jiggae with rice (RM15) and 4 types of side dishes
Chamchi Kimchi Jiggae (RM15) and 4 types of side dishes
Deonjang Jiggae (RM15) and 4 types of side dishes.
What’s else is interesting about this restaurant is that they also offer the ‘Ala Carte Buffet‘, adopting an ‘all you can eat’ concept where you can freely order the chicken ala carte dish on their menu as part of their opening promotion. Here’s their Opening Promotion Set- Chicken Unlimited in 3 flavours:
