First dinner of the week and we already went big on it. @bumbusatujkt was our pick and despite its Indonesian name, they are serving Korean cuisine and by far was the most proper and authentic Korean Restaurant I've had.
Pork trotters/feet, grilled marinated eel, marinated octopus, blood sausage/sun dae, and beef soup was the menu that we ordered, and was surprised that it can feed more than 4 people. Portions are big here so if you're after a restaurant that could host your big family/circle of friends, this is one of the place.
Side dishes flowed out generously, making my table pretty and colourful. Each of them tastes great, I personally liked the pajeon and kimchi. The table setting was on point, love it 👌 you don't have to wait for too long for your orders to be served, enjoy a bit of their side dishes then your orders will be delivered smoothly. Ours took around 5 minutes after the side dishes are served.
The beef soup was light and hearty, you can taste the beefiness in the broth, yet it's not being overpowered. Season it with salt to your liking as it's served unsalted.
The blood sausage tastes nicer than I thought. It's like eating vermicelli rolls with chewier wrapper, and the blood tastes kinda grainy. It sounds weird in words, have a taste yourself and you'll understand what I mean.
The marinated octopus and eel, loved this. Octopus was still juicy and not tough like a piece of rubber. The marinated eel was too ginger-y for me, but I don't mind, it took the fishyness away and was cooked too perfection, giving you delicious plump juicy eel to enjoy.
The pork feet. Served 2 ways, hot and cold. Served in slices, Both of them are equally good, a tad chewy from the collagens. Have them with those pickled banchans (side dishes) and all to reduce its gaminess. Dip them into the sauces provided as well to elevate its flavour, and alternate between dishes to entertain your tastebuds.
