Pelicana Korean Fried Chicken - ECurve Mutiara Damansara - Delicious Korean Fried Chicken Review.

Most people just loves fried chicken; but a Korean Fried Chicken just came to town. Best Restaurant To Eat was invited to taste out the new Pelicana Korean Fried Chicken located at Level 1, Lot 1-43, eCurve Mutiara Damansara, Petaling Jaya

Pelicana Korean Fried Chicken was established in 1982 in Korea and today has more than 2000 outlet throughout the world. The decor is one of a fast food restaurant style; where you order your delicious fried chicken and then enjoy it.

One of the unique point of Pelicana Fried Chicken is the special recipe batter that it uses to coat the chicken; it does not absorb too much oil during the frying process. This helps the fried chicken to show not too much traces of oil and it also maintain the crispiness even after leaving it for a while. The chicken that is used at Pelicana is a premium chicken which must meet the minimum weight so that each piece of chicken is consistent in its serving size.

Besides serving the 5 types of original Korean Fried Chicken, Pelicana also serves burgers too - much of this later but let start with the signature Fried Chicken.

There are 5 different flavours of Fried Chicken that are served at Pelicana Korean Fried Chicken; the first of which is the Peli Crunchy Fried Chicken.

Smothered with a secret recipe batter, the chicken wings and drumstick are firstly coated with this batter and deep fried to a golden crunch and crisp chicken.

Koreans really love to eat their Fried Chicken with a sauce coating; which the first one; of the four flavour that we are going to eat is coated with the original sauce which is a peanut based sauce that has a tad of slight sweetness and very low spicy taste.

This is the called the Peli Yang Nyeom Original Chicken dose with sprinkle of sesame seed. Note: All the chicken is using the same batter to coat before frying.

While the next is the Peli Yang Nyeom Spring Onion Chicken.

From the taste, we could easily taste that wasabi was one of the ingredient used to make the sauce. 

Next, we had the Peli Yang Nyeom Charcoal BBQ Chicken.

This sauce has a second level of spiciness in it. After your first bite, the spiciness taste will lingers around your mouth for some time. It has that special after effect. For those who loves to eat their chicken that has an oomph, you might want to give this a try.

The last flavoured sauce it the Peli Yang Nyeom Hot Spice Chicken.

This sauce have a level 3 spicy level; in that after your first bite, the spicy taste lingers not only in your mouth but in your throat. Seriously, I too find the spicy level a tad too high for me. If you really game to try this my suggestion is either you be prepared to order lots of ice water or

for me a Pina Colada which is a Pineapple Coconut smoothies to go with the Hot Spice Chicken.

At Pelicana Korean Fried Chicken, the side dishes that are served is the seasoned raddish (Musaengchae) , Seaweed salad (Miyeok Muchim) and the Korean Fragrant Rice. The rice is cooked with seaweed and black sesame which was a good complement to the Fried Chicken.

For a big family or a group of friends, you can opt to order a special platter which can be eaten either as a 4 pax or 6 pax set. Ordering this platter allows you and your friends to taste the different flavours of Pelicana Fried Chicken and side orders.

For those that prefers their chicken to be eaten as a burger, you can opt for the Peli Jumbo Fillet Burger which has a piece of golden fried chicken fillet served with tomatoes, lettuce and cheese.

or if you not game for any chicken, you can try out the Peli D'Fish Spicy Burger which is replace by a piece of Fried Fish Fillet.

If you are a real fan or just plainly loves Fried Chicken, you might want to go to Pelicana at the Curve to enjoy this delicious Fried Chicken.

eCurves Damansara Top Quality Steamboat at Pak John Steamboat and Yong Tau Foo

Talking about steamboat, quality ingredient is of utmost importance. This is because steamboats are cooked and eaten cooked straight from the steaming pot, therefore if the ingredients are not of the freshest and top quality, this will be the biggest turnoff.

We had the opportunity to try out the new outlet, which was opened just 2 weeks ago (although the first outlet is more than one year old) Pak John Steamboat and Yong Tau Foo which is located on e-Curve. As usual, we were very sceptical of new steamboat restaurant as to me, not many make the grades. 

To me, there are a few key things to a nice meal of steamboat. Of paramount importance is of course the fresh and qaulity foods (especially seafood), which is followed by the soup base that are served and lastly the complement sauces. Sometimes it is very hard to get the perfect balance.

As you know, most good steamboat are outdoor steamboat shops and normally we end up feeling very heated up with all the hot stuffs (sauces, soups and etc) taken in especially if you have chosen the Tom yam variant.  But since Pak John is in e-Curve, the place was very cool with good air conditioning system and you can eat in a relax atmosphere which, is very conducive for steamboat.

At Pak John, they offer 3 soup bases, the normal chicken, tom yam and their own creation Miso soup base. We tried all the soup base and ended up with our preference accordingly being Miso the best, follow by chicken and lastly the tom yam (which to me is a tad of being a little too sourish). 

Besides steamboat, Pak John also allows for grilling on a special pot which they use. The good thing is that this grill plate can easily be change with a fresh plate if it is already burnt out after many round of BBQ. 

For the sauces there are four types, namely the Thai Green Chilli, Thai Chilli, sweet sauce and Belacan. The Thai Green Chilli sauce is an own creation by its chef, is sourish based and not too spicy, but my preference was on the Belacan. 

Pak John offers a few specialities item which, you can either BBQ or put into the pot. There are Smoked Duck Breast slices, New Zealand Lamb slices, Australian beef slices and Abalone surimi. For the price that they charge, I considered this as a very premium add-on that this restaurant offers. My personal top preference was the Duck meat as when I put in on the grill, the smoke taste was just right and I can taste the wonderful flavourful of the meat.

Next, we had the fresh seafood, which consists of prawns, squids, lala and clams. The squid was very fresh and springy i.e. after cooking into the pot, it still has a firm and bouncy texture. The prawn was very fresh, but the type of lala that was used was not so suitable for steamboat, as chances are you will overcook it and it become very tiny. Well you could also BBQ the prawn, which I did and if cooked at the right temperature you can taste the sweetness of the prawns.

Normally, I won’t take much of fishball or surimi when I eat steamboat as I dread the feeling to eat something that is processed with a huge amount of flour mix into the fish or surimi. I taken the liberty to try one piece of each of the item and found that it is very different especially in the area of taste. The flavouring was strong and the texture was just right. Some of these surimi fishball have filing too like cheese in it, example are the seafood taufoo and dumpling, while the sotong balls have real pieces of squid in it.

 For me, I find the mushroom offering aplenty as they have many types namely the Shitake, Oyster mushroom, King mushroom , Enoki, Straw Mushroom and so forth. Also I found the “mien kang” a little bigger than the normal size and I really like it, in that when cooked in the pot the soup taste is immersed into the mien kang.

 As in many steamboat buffet, Pak John also serve side dishes like Fried Bee Hoon, Fried Black Pepper Udon, Curry Chicken, Fried Rice (for non steamboat fans). They do have kiddies food like French fries and Chicken Nuggets too. 

There is a waffles making station. For kids, waffles is a nice option for them. They can choose their filling and of course, can be topped up with ice cream of their choice as well. For ice-cream, they have chocolate and green tea serves from the ice –cream machine which is smooth and not lumpy. 

Finally, Pak John also offer ice-cream potong which came in many flavours i.e. durian, jack fruit, yam, cendol and green bean with durian. For me, this ice cream potong is a little too sweet. I will stick with the ice-cream.

I was satisfied with the meal and will not hesitate to pay another visit, when I have another craving for steamboat and BBQ.

Pak John is now offering a special price of RM28.00 (Monday to Thursday) for dinner buffet and RM36.00 (Friday to Sunday). At this price, it is a good bargain comparative to the quality of the food serves here. Let’s hope they will continue providing top quality, fresh food and good services.
