Kimchi Korean Restaurant, Tropicana City

An unexpected visit to Tropicana City led us to Kimchi Restaurant, it was still brunch time and I was not too sure I was up for korean for brunch time.
Nonetheless we stepped in; being the first customer has it's perks I guess. The service was pretty good.
some drinks while waiting for our food..
The Korean Plum tea.
I didnt like it; reminds me of the cough medicine I had when I was young. BQ liked it though..
There were 4 types of side dishes. A lil less compared to other restaurants..Boring selection too.
Complimentary pan fried dumplings..
Juicy, moist center and crisp skin. Pretty good.
The beef bibimbap
Somehow, this felt like fast food korean. The ingredients looked unrefined and prepared haphazardly, i could even see 2 of the side dishes served earlier also served in my bibimbap. :(. Taste wise, it's average.
The sizzling chicken ..
BQ enjoyed it; the chicken was tender and the sauce gets spicier with every bite. I felt it was more chinese- aka chinese hot plate spicy chicken.
Overall an average experience that does not render a revisit from me.
Kimchi Korean Restaurant, L1-57, First Floor, Tropicana City Mall, PJ.

It's nice that they serve complimentary fried dumplings, never encounter that in any Korean restaurants before.

Ok...will avoid this place if I ever return to Tropicana Mall. Think the only place I want to try at that mall is the Indulge cafe.
