Born Ga - Korean comfort food in the next level!

There are so many rumours that Korean food industry in Jakarta gonna be expanded at the end of 2015, and i do believe that. Since there are more than 20 different Korean restaurants that just opened in our cityscape at the last quarter of 2015. Despite the fact we get so many option to have any typical Korean dishes, i do think that Born Ga is deserved your attention. A lovely brand that originally brought from South Korea to Jakarta. On the original country itself, Born Ga has been known for their famous BBQ specialty. Check this out folks!

Once i came in to this place, the crowd is so insane. There are so many waiting list name on the board and fortunately i already do some reservation before i came in. Actually the place is not really decorated for fancy or even classic atmosphere. The wooden furniture with a little touch of rustic interior design has been create a casual dining experience for every customer. Possibly this place is pretty big and it could be serving for 80 - 100 pax at the same moment.

Manshinchang Samgyeopsal (IDR 130K / min. 2 pieces per serving)
Fine cut meat that dedicated for every meat lovers. Possibly the most common meat that we ever seen in any Korean restaurants. But the main differences between their meat and another is located on the texture of it. Possibly in many Korean restaurants, their meat is quite dry and not really tasty. But the one that Born Ga served here is absolutely juicy, moist and rich of flavour. Even you can eat the meat without any additional sauce.

Woo Samgyup (IDR 190K / min. 2 pieces per serving)
The best and most famous menu from South Korea. Woo Samgyup is a thinly sliced beef brisker dressed with Born Ga special sauce. For me this one absolutely impressive. Look at that meat. The fat layer has been calculate effectively in case to get moist and juicy texture. Even the meat itself already full of spices and really tasty. Possibly the only meat that i couldn't resist for!

Japchae (IDR 130K)
A stir fried beef, vegetable and glass noodle absolutely magnificent. In Korea, they served Japchae as a side dish and mostly they didn't put it on their menu. But to make it more commercial in Indonesia, they has been added a lil touch of modification to make it more complex and delightful as a proud menu of Bornga. I think every single customer on that area will order this, since the price compare with the flavour is definitely affordable.

Budae Jigae (IDR 250K)
For those who are looking for a hot and spicy stew, i do think Budae Jigae is your right decision. A combination between kimchi, ham, sausages, cheese, yellow noodle and some additional vegetables definitely impressive. I do love the complexity of this dish along with the mild flavour of it. Actually they gonna cooked this right in front of you in case to keep it warmth and hot. Possibly it's too big to enjoy this dish alone, so sharing is recommended. Could be served for around 3 - 4 people. Sharing means caring, right folks?

Overall, i do love this area so much. They have a pretty good Korean dishes along with unique ambience. Probably they food is not cheap at all, you need to spend a little bit more here rather than any other typical Korean restaurants. But for me it's worth it enough. Since quality means everything for me. I do recommend you this folks!
