Today’s radio stations are still airing emo sad songs.
To add on to the emoness, the fiance and I went to Plaza Merdeka, one fine evening, to have our dinner together at BBQ Korean’s No.1 which is located at Lower Ground Floor. We heard many good reviews about this restaurant, so off we went there.
The restaurant was empty at the time we were there. No one serve us when we were at their entrance though they have many staffs in there. So, we chose our own seats.
To be safe, we ordered their popular dish – Chicken Meal Jerk BBQ Meal Set @ RM19.50
Each meal is served with fresh garden salad, rice of the day (which we have no idea what is it and they didn’t seem to intro to us too ) and one side of our choice. They have Kochi, Calamari, Pomme Frite, Grilled Corn, Pineapple Grilled Kochi or Mashed Potatoes. We were just being pointed at the menu on the side dishes, so we roughly chose a grilled pineapple.
We were hoping the food is good since the service wasn’t. Unfortunately, we were served a COLD FRIED RICE . The rice of the day is BELOW the room temperature !!! The chicken was served at room temperature. I’m not sure if it is supposed to be served that way. I thought BBQ is supposed to be served HOT? No?
Then, we ordered tea, wanting to share.
It was served in a cup
Pardon my innocence. I saw the picture in the menu and I thought it will be served in a pot instead
Next, the emo-oily room temperature Mushroom Soup with an over baked butter baguette @ RM7.90 WHY ARE THEIR FOOD ALL AT ROOM TEMPERATURE??!! Not sure about you but I felt any soup below HOT is awful. What more this is creamy type of soup !!!!
In the menu, they have few choices of Premium Sauced Chicken. We ordered the one with “atas name” called Paris Chicken @ RM14.50 for 5 pieces.
It says in the menu – Tantalizing Crispy Wings marinated with special made sauce, tossed with saute garlic, leek and sliced chilies BUT.. upon separating them, we got two wings, two drumettes and one super tiny drumette *felt cheated*
Overall, my personal experience was BAD. Maybe because I read many good reviews saying this restaurant is 9/10 kinda rating and I was hoping for the food and service to be at that high rated but unfortunately, we were NOT being served that well and the food was really awful because they were served at room temperature and below room temperature !! My personal rating would be 2/10 and that 1 is for its interior and another 1 is for the location of this restaurant in Plaza Merdeka.
