Unlimited or one-time provision of side dishes is a common practice in most authentic Korean restaurants in Malaysia. That way, you’ll be able to enjoy some sides alongside your main meal. These sides generally include dishes like fried anchovies, spinach and kimchi.
If you have a bigger appetite, you can opt to enjoy a Korean buffet instead where you can eat all the meats and sides you want, for a fixed price. Here are 5 restaurants in Klang Valley which offers Korean buffets—and they are all priced at RM45 and below!
