Kafe Go To School @ Solaris Mont Kiara

For most Malaysians, Korean cuisine is all about BBQ. Well, that is not entirely true. I’ll be glad to enlighten you on the other ” Korean cuisine”, readily available at Klang Valley.

Kafe Go To School, a rather new Korean cafe that joins the busy “little Korean Town” of Solaris Mont Kiara. Featuring a ‘back to school’ theme, the cafe is designed well to show off the ambiance of classroom furnished with colourful wooden tables and chairs (although ours not as vibrant like these, school in Korea perhaps:P)

Some vintage school knick-knack decorated the place, there is even an old piano placed at the end of the restaurant.

Patrons are allowed to scribble on the walls with the chalks provided, a good activity to keep the kids occupied~ LOL

Fashion Bento (RM 88.00)

Everyone in awe when the first dish was brought to out table, not expecting it to be a such large portion! 5 types of dishes individually served in metal box and 4 side dishes then on a large round dish. A portion to be shared among 4-5 pax.

The set consists of a whole chicken is prepared in dual style, regular fried chicken and Fried Yang Neum Chicken coated in sweet chilli sauce. Deep fried in a rather thick batter which I not really fond of but Sam enjoyed it immensely which she had 2 pieces of the non-spicy version. The sticky sweet chili sauce on the other hand was quite moreish and flavorful, the addition of crush peanuts and sesame seeds definitely the magic touch that compensated the thick batter 😛

Oh ya, they provide plastic gloves to the patrons! A thoughtful gesture to let the diners savor the fried chicken at its best without worry about the oily hands aftermath.

Jab Chae, stir fried Korean glass noodles with vegetables. Well cooked with every strand absorbed the flavor of the seasonings while the vegetables still remained crunchy.

Another giant pot was brought to our table with portable mini stove. I saw huge beef ribs stacked highly on bed of ingredients such as glass noodles, rice cakes (tteok), carrot, cabbage and spring onion. Submerged in a sweet savory broth made from Korean pear, apple, pineapple, ginseng and more, those ingredients absorb the delicate flavors from the broth. The beef ribs unquestionably took the center stage here for its tenderness yet had a good bite in the meat. Highly recommended!

The generous amount of spring onion chunks of this seafood scallion pancake had me really excited. I can taste the pungent taste of the scallion as well as a fragrant egg-y taste in every bite.

Kimchi Jjigae (RM 23.00)
Appeared in fiery red hue, the kimchi soup laden with mushrooms, tofu, spring oinion and pork slices was extremely spicy which really exceed our tolerance for spiciness.
 
While most of the food are spicy, there are dishes which are kid’s friendly too at Kafe Go To School.

The chicken Ginseng soup was quite mild in flavor and dearth of Ginseng taste as it should be. However this milder version was much welcomed by the kids.

Make sure you save room for desserts if you visit Kafe Go To School! Bingsu, the Korean shaved ice dessert is one of the signature here as well as other desserts such as waffles and crepe cakes. Being indecisive, we had 3 bingsu and they turned out to be very satisfying.

Very Very Thank You Bingsu (RM 33.00)

Jeweled with generous amount of strawberries, blue berries, raisins, corn flakes and a scoop of Vanilla ice cream. The shaved ice of the bingsu was superbly fine and fluffy which carried a sleek of pleasant milky flavor. A contenting dessert to be shared!

Green Tea Bingsu (RM 24.90)
The bed of milky flavored shaved ice was generously dusted with matcha powder then crowned with sweeten red bean and a scoop of green tea ice cream.

U-Ja Cheesecake Bingsu (RM 24.90)
An unique combination of blueberry cheese cake & bingsu. Take a mouthful of that cheese cake, milky shaved ice and the citron marmalade, let the multitude of flavors and textures work wonder in your mouth!
Verdict: If you want Korean food but not the usual BBQ, give Kafe Go To School a try for their home-cooked dishes. The service was attentive during our visit, I like the relax vibe of this place and kid’s friendly environment also another important factor to lure me for a revisit.
