Launched last August amidst much Korean fanfare, YG Republique is a fully-integrated K-style food and entertainment space located in TREC Kuala Lumpur. It is a fully integrated K-style food and entertainment space outside Korea.
Recently we checked out some favourites at YG BBQ Restaurant. The Butcher’s Sampler was a good choice. The sample of 3 Iberico cuts – neck, shoulder and belly came wrapped in a nostalgic newsprint butcher paper, reminiscent of olden days. The premium cuts were then placed onto the table grill and before long, we got to savour the sizzling hot succulent meat. We dug in, initially eating the pork on its own to enjoy its natural sweet flavours and then eating it topped with some of the barchans served. The tangy and refillable dishes of tasty vegetables in the banchan proved to be a hit with us.

Next we tried the spicy but addictive Butcher’s Fried Rice. We really liked this dish – it’s full of “wok her” and tossed with chunks of pork, aged kimchi and chipotle sauce.

Another popular dish here is their Andong Jjimdak – a traditional Korean chicken stew with glass noodles. The flavours were robust, full of umami-goodness and perfect with a bowl of white rice.
