Just a short promo..

I know there isn't that much time left for this, but if you would like to go for a Christmas buffet over the weekend this December, then perhaps you can check out the All You Can Eat Christmas Brunch at Bella Italia!

Su Ra Sang Korean Restaurant

Su Ra Sang actually translates to King's Table in the Korean language, and this restaurant located on the 1st floor of the D Junction building has been operating since August 2010.


What you will see as soon as you walk into the restaurant entrance door


At the time we were there, the place was very quiet, but don't let this fool you; Su Ra Sang actually offers a variety of dishes that will leave you browsing into the menu for quite sometime, just wondering what to order!


All the dishes that I had to review that night! But it's no fun just looking them from afar, right? So let's get to each dish!

First up, the Korean dishes:

Korean Menu


The Seafood Japchae (잡채), made from glass noodle and seafood.

Japchae comprises of the 2 hanja words: 잡 (jap, literally means mixed and stirred) and 채 (chae, literally means vegetables), so 잡채 (Japchae) literally means a mixture of vegetable! More info on Japchae can be found here.

I quite like this dish as the glass noodle is very fragrant, and even though it's quite bland (as with most of Korean dishes, if you don't know that already), if you eat it with the seafood and the 5 Banchan (Korean Side Dishes), you will not notice the bland taste as much. This dish also for some reason screams "Healthy" to me, so to those of you who wants to order something light and healthy, then you could perhaps order this!

The 5 Banchan (Side Dishes)

The 5 Banchan (반찬, or side dishes) comes with whatever Korean dish you order by the way, regardless of the price!


This is the ever popular Jja jang myun (or Jja jang myeon, or 짜장면  in Hangul, the Korean alphabet). If you watch a lot of Korean dramas or movies, this dish would be eaten all the time! More info on what Jja jang myeon is, click here.

You should give this dish a try whenever you go to a Korean restaurant!


This is the Maewoon Galbi Jjim, or Spicy Beef Rib Stew. 

If you haven't known already, Koreans also love their spicy dishes, like the side dish kimchi, and their variety of noodles (which are mentioned below). So to add on to another spicy dish is this Spicy Beef Rib Stew.

I find that the meat is perfectly tender, but gosh, this dish sure is SPICY! (Yes, I am one who can't stand spicy food!)


This is the Yuk Gae Jang Myun (육개장면, noodle with shredded beef and vegetables in a spicy broth. This dish is believed to be good for the health and is popular due to its hot and spicy taste.

Again, it is a bit too spicy for my liking, but that's just because I don't eat spicy food. The broth is quite delicious actually, but at that time, all I could taste was the spiciness.


This is a common Korean dessert called Hwachae (화채), which is basically a fruit punch that consists of pears, watermelons, black peppercorns, honey (or sugar) and water.

Hwachae (Fruit Punch)

Just when you think that this is just a normal fruit punch with fruits inside, the peppercorns shocks you with its peppery taste! Something different but quite nice, I must admit! A must try for dessert!

For the Korean dishes, I find the prices quite reasonable, especially the Myun, or noodle dishes, starting at just RM10 and above.

Also if you're a Soju lover, then you will be happy to know that Su Ra Sang offers 30% discount on this drink every Saturday!

Since I have quite a lot of photos to post for the Japanese dishes in Su Ra Sang, I shall post them in another post. Will link it here soon!
