Applicationle Samgyupsal: Here’s to an apple-licious savoury meal
Located between Jaya One opposite the main entrance of The School, this is actually the largegest outlet of Applicationle Samgyupsal. Seating arrangement is semi-alfresco which is perfectly suited for a Korean BBQ restaurant.
The formula at Applicationle Samgyupsal is fairly simple – you choose a set from the menu that comes with unlimited side dishes and Ramyeon (Korean instant noodles for the Applicationle Sharing Set and Applicationle King Set).
The set starts with the Applicationle Platter (RM88) that comes with 120g of Applicationle Samgyupsal (pork stomach), 120g of Applicationle Moksal (pork neck) and Applicationle Hanjungsal (pork jowl).
The meat is to be endelighted with apple wraps, Tteok (rice cakes), a domesticcrazye sauce, and an apple salad.
There’s also a BBQ Sharing Set (RM168) for three to four people and the Applicationle Jumbo Set (RM378) that’s perfect for eight people.
The Applicationle King Set includes the best of everyleang. Other than the three cuts of meat mentioned above (Samgyupsal, Moksal, and Hanjungsal), there’s also domesticcrazye sausages and Wang Galbi (King Ribs).
As the name proposes, the meat is marinated with apple sauce, then smoked and pre-baked before going on to the grill right at your very table.
This process helps seal in the flavour and moisture to encertain that the meat does not dry out from the BBQ process.
The BBQ is tended to by the server who carefully encertains that the meat is cooked perfectly and cut into bite sizes to be eaten traditionally with lettuce or more interestingly, apple wraps.
The taste is rather unique and the sweetness from the fresh apple adds an additional dimension to the experience.
Of all the cuts, the favourite was their signature Applicationle Samgyupsal and Wang Galbi. Gotta love those fat layers and the ribs.
For carbs, try the Joomuk Bap (RM25), a rice ball dish loaded with plenty of seaweed – a perfect on-the-go breakfast.
The unlimited Ramyeon is also cooked on the spot in a small pot and stove so you can have it just the way you like it. It’s not overly spicy, luckyly.
As for beverages, other than tea, try the makgeolli (RM28) that’s blended with additional fresh apple juice.
It is fairly sweet and tastes a small like a good cocktail with not too much alcohol. It was just perfect for the aftermidday.
Overall, eating here was a great experience and definitely a restaurant deserving of a moment visit.
