Jokbal - Chicken House @ Solaris, Mont Kiara

During my week stint in Semenyih, my partner-in-crimes took me to this Korean restaurant Chicken House @Solaris, Mont Kiara, for they know that I love Korean food :) The moment they say Korean food for dinner...the first thing that flashed across my mind is JOKBAL !

I watched Nation's Big Three on Astro, whereby in one of their series, they featured Jokbal . Jokbal is a Korean dish consisting of pig's trotters cooked with soy sauce and spices. It is usually braised in a combination of soy sauce, ginger, garlic, and rice wine. . WB and I can only drool while watching the that series . I was so happy when my partner JO told me that Chicken House do serve Jokbal. Hehehe , now I get to eat the real one.  I must say it is really delicious.  Flavorful and the trotters so tender and succulent.  Maybe one day, I should try to replicate and bring for our cell group pot luck dinner :) We ordered one Jokbal and one Spicy fried chicken...and a jug of Mango rice wine (korean rice wine) Makgeolli ).  By the time we finished the Jokbal and the spicy fried chicken , we can't walk properly.....hahahaha it was either the rice wine or we had too much meat that filled our small stomach *wink... it was the best dinner I had thus far.  Love the Jokbal !

one whole trotter for 3 person *wink wink

 tender and can either eat it stand alone or
wrap in lettuce which comes bottomless.  They will replenish
for you when you have emptied the plate

the jokbal comes deboned and cut into thin slices

the Jokbal order comes with a set of banchan - 
a plate of kimchi, pickle cucumber,
spicy garlic scapes and stir fry sausages

and not to miss this...spicy fried chicken...crispy and
garnishes with ground peanuts and crispy garlic
and sesame seed

finger licking good....

Korean  (Makgeolli )  is so good that I know I will
order this again the next time I come here for Jokbal..
every sip is intoxicating

mango rice wine is a great accompaniment for Jokbal

one way to eat jokbal is wrap in lettuce, add garlic and kimchi
and sliced jalapeno ...and go nom nom

a toast to many more jokbal meals together :)
