Sae Ma Eul

Spicy Pork Ribs Soup / Gamjatang

I don't think I've ever ordered this - it came with a huge bone on its own! Their soup is always my favourite, we would usually get the kimchi jigae instead. I'm guessing they use everything the same since the soup tastes pretty much the same too.

I have not been to Sae Ma Eul for a very long time and guess what, they have added CHEESE to their menu to keep up the game! 

Unfortunately, I find the bowl isn't really the right one - the cheese at the bottom was stuck to the bowl and burnt, almost unable to eat. The fire right in the centre was too hot so it burnt the bottom later and it did not melt the middle.

Nevertheless, it's a good thing to know they serve cheese now - pretty much what every other Korean hipster shops are doing.

Other than that's everything else is still the same. Only 3 side dishes, not really cheap meat now, outdoor seats, limited air-conditioning.

One thing I have to remind you patrons out there - beware of the hot pot in the middle. There is no protection beneath the table and it just happened when I automatically crossed my legs. It started off with red skin, then the whole area was injured for the next 3 weeks - allowing little movement and yes it left me a scar. I've dined here for more than 10 times but I've never had this problem, it's just one of those unlucky days where I'm not quite careful!! Moral of the story, be extra careful when you dine here....

Likes: Affordable, fresh meat, casual place
Dislikes: Can be very slow service when the place is packed, tables are not very safe
Other Info: They do have branches across Klang Valley. Solaris being their first, Jaya One, Publika
