Not exactly a hidden gem, Hwang Hae Korean BBQ restaurant in Solaris Mont Kiara is already quite an eye catching one with their strategic location. For the ultimate Korean barbeque (BBQ) in town, there is certainly no other place but Mont Kiara. Solaris Mont Kiara is home to many awesome Korean restaurants, but if you’re salivating for some sizzling spicy ribs that come with blankets of melted cheese and those piping hot meats, you are in the right place. Apart from those skewers that have been circulating on social medias, Hwang Hae also have this Grilled Back Ribs with Cheese (Cheese Deunggalbi Gui, 치즈등갈비구이) that is obviously strictly for sharing. Cheese lovers, look no further. Dine comfortably and have fun pulling and stretching those cheeses.
Available in two sizes (RM 85 for medium and RM 120 for large), I’d say the medium is good for 2-3 pax. Like every other Korean meals, this one is also served with complimentary side dishes- 4 very simple banchan that goes rather well with the spicy rib. The combination of thick melting cheese, rice cakes and spicy rib was perfect match- cheesy and creamy flow of cheese balances the fiery ribs to leave an excitingly subtle flavour.
With open air and plenty of space for good ventilation, and those typical arrangements of seats aligned with fitted table top grill, it is actually easier to identify it as a Korean BBQ restaurant. But, ala carte stews and few other dishes actually take up 1 out of 4 of their laminated menu. Prices aren’t exactly affordable, so I don’t recommend their dishes. Instead, go for the BBQ. The Haemul Sundubu Seafood and Soft Tofu Stew cost RM 45 with very little seafood and not quite fresh. Tofu was generously added and the stew was no doubt smooth and silky. Good on a raining day if they could keep up with the freshness of their seafood. Each table comes with 4 side dishes and drinking water is free of charge.
