This Gangnam-hailing Korean restaurant with chains around Southeast Asia has finally arrived in Thailand.
This Gangnam-hailing Korean restaurant with chains around Southeast Asia has finally arrived in Thailand. The Bangkok branch is the brand's first attempt at going premium, dubbed Bulgogi Brothers Gold, and it features elevated dishes and ingredients.
In addition to the specialty barbecue dishes like unyang style bulgogi (150g minced beef heart-shaped patties, B295 for Thai ribeye or B590 for US beef) and gwanyang style bulgogi (150g of sliced beef, B240 for Thai ribeye and B480 for US beef), there are also hotpots (B550-2,300).
You can also expect jazzed up Korean staples like the Stew Brothers (mix of kimchi and soybean stews, B540), King’s Bibimbap (rice with variations of vegetables and beef, B350), the bonguri kimchi (B280), made from two-day-fermented mushroom, pear and apple, wrapped in cabbage, and seafood pajeon (Korean pancake, B350), which is served in slices like pizza instead of the usual rectangular pieces.
It’s also the brand’s first attempt to go premium, falling under the new name Bulgogi Brothers Gold. Despite the upscale rebrand, we only found small differences between this menu and those of Bulgogi Brothers restaurants abroad. Dishes like abalone chicken porridge (B550), ginseng chicken with abalone soup (B600) and spicy lobster seafood hot pot (B2,300) account for the more upscale direction, but elsewhere it’s business as usual with quite delicious bulgogi (marinated grilled meat) barbecue.
This review took place in April 2016 and is based on a visit to the restaurant without the restaurant's knowledge. For more on BK's review policy, click here.
