Korean Food Festival Buffet @ Pullman Kuching

Korean Cuisine is definitely not a foreign term for Kuchingnites. We were crazy about K-pop K-drama and down to falling in love with all the Korean related everything. I’m not sure about you but I am a big fans of Korean Food and were extremely delighted when Pullman Kuching launched the Korean Food Festival!


This is the first ever korea food promotion introduced by the hotel. For our fellow food lovers, the Korean Food Festival will be here from the 26th June to 9th July 2017 for a two weeks buffet style basis and after this two weeks, Korean Buffet will only be available on the weekdays but ala carte is served throughout. Specially thanks to our Korean Chef Lee Seung Joon for bringing us so much good food. And if you were doubting about authenticity, don’t worry! the Korean Food Festival is specially planned by the beloved Korean General Manager of Pullman Kuching, Mr. Charles Choi. #doubletheauthenticity

Lets take a walk through the buffet line: we have the side dish station, the main course station, the grilled station and the dessert station. 

DSC00960 DSC00961 DSC00964 DSC01020The all time favourite, side dishes! Korean Food Festival served more than 16 types of side dishes or you can call you banchan to go with your  main courses. Among my favourite will be the kimchi, the tuna kimbap, jap chey and the silken tofu!

Proceed to the main courses for the night; 

DSC00970Dak Gang Jung | Fried crispy chicken thigh with sweet and slightly spicy sauce
I personally like the dak gang jung. The chicken thigh is fried with a very thin batter and coated with heavy sweet and spicy sauce. Meat is still juicy inside! Yums!

DSC00974Beef Bulgogi | Beef slices marinated and stir fry in the special sauce

DSC00978Saengseon Jorim | Pacific ocean mackerel, radish, leeks with spicy sauce
I absolutely love this dish. The sauce is not too spicy but it goes well together with the mackerel. Mackerel is fresh and its slight grilled before slow cooked with the radish. Radish is cook through and it absorb all the goodness of the sauce. Can’t stop eating it! 

DSC00983Beef Galbi Jjim | Premium NZ beef short rib, radish, carrot cooked with traditional soya sauce, onion & sesame seeds
This is the bomb. My favourite and highly recommended dish in Korean Food Festival. The short ribs is fall of the bone, juicy tender and so well marinated. You know when you ingredients were fresh and good. I had three rounds of beef galbi. Its just so addicitive!
