So a few weeks ago, Fay and I decided to meet up after work and we went to Imago Mall Kota Kinabalu for a catch-up and bikini hunting since our beach retreat is coming soon (watch out for that post)! After the unsuccessful hunt, we were pretty hungry so we decided to have dinner at this new Korean restaurant called The Gaon, all thanks to Maslight post and recommendation on this restaurant on her Instagram post. This restaurant is located in Imago Mall Kota Kinabalu and actually situated above Souled Out.
When we first walked in, the restaurant looked très chic but very comfortable at the same time. The space was decorated minimally and there are also a few private rooms located at one side of the restaurant suitable for private events, luncheon, that sort of thing. I was looking from the main dining area, I could see that the private dining rooms has a huge glass window; rooms with view, what’s not to like! I would say that the restaurant is quite huge and spacious, so it is has that private feel that you could bring your mate, spouse, boyfriend or girlfriend to go for a little romantic meal.
The restaurant offers quite a variety of authentic Korean meals from Kimchi JJigae, Sundubu JJigae, Bibimbap to Korean barbeque. Being so indecisive as always, I couldn’t decide on what to eat. So in the end, I opt for Bibimbap because you can never go wrong with Bibimbap. Fay ordered the same thing and we collectively agreed to include Sundubu JJigae with beef in our order since we wanted something soupy, which in fact these two dishes are actually our fave Korean dishes.
All the elements in the Bibimbap were well seasoned, the Sundubu JJigae was not salty cos I have tried Sundubu JJigae elsewhere and this meal can be quite salty. All in all, I enjoyed our little din-din here.
Until next time, Jess x
