One Book That’s Worthy Cause You Get To Save Some Cash!

Have any of you stumbled on the Worthy Book (RM29.90 for 180 vouchers, that’s a pretty good deal!) in bookstores and magazine stands recently? Well I picked up the Food Edition 2 weeks back and ever since then, I have visited 3 different restaurants which has been featured on this voucher booklet. Apparently the vouchers lasted from last year till end of August 2015. So I’m a little late on the Worthy Book bandwagon but hey, at least I still got to enjoy 3 deals featured in the booklet. 🙂

worthy book brotzeit
I had cravings for some German food so I made my way to Brotzeit since I saw they had some vouchers for me to use there. I used the 25% Off On Any Sausage Platter voucher and got the their signature pork sausage platter that came with a generous amount of mashed potatoes and sauerkraut.
But I wished they were more generous about the amount of sausages or make it fatter since you’re serving about 5 pieces only per platter. It was about RM45 before the 25% discount. Nevertheless, the mashed potato and sauerkraut tasted great with the sausages, nothing is more German than having your sausages with sauerkraut. Just pass the voucher as you are making your order so that the waiter will include the platter in the order. Remember to hand it to them as you ask for your bill for them to include the discount.

 

worthy book sushi tei
A few days after I popped my Worthy Book’s voucher cherry, I headed to Sushi Tei to get my Salmon Sashimi fix since I could redeem 1- FREE Salmon Sashimi with orders above RM30. Actually it was 5 thick pieces of Salmon Sashimi but the beau stole 1 piece before I took a picture of it but hey, it does look similar to it’s photo on the voucher. It was yummy so I’m happy I got my fix.
Show the voucher when you’re making orders and pass it to them when you call for your bill. They charged me for the sashimi because they forgotten about the voucher that I have shown them so check your receipt before paying.

 

worthy book my burger lab
Last week, the beau and I made our way to My Burger Lab, OUG so that we can try out some new burgers from them. This 50% OFF on Second Burger voucher was a really helpful since we ordered 1 Yellow Submarine set and 1 Bulbasaur a la carte burger to that got discounted by 50%. Pass the voucher to them as you make your order. The T&C for the voucher did not state we can only use 1 voucher per receipt so we had to ask if we are allowed to use more than 1 voucher.

 

my burger lab yellow submarine
The Yellow Submarine set. It’s one of the Secret Menu burgers so we had to try it! It has fried chicken, fried egg, mustard and other ingredients that I can’t recall but you can always ask the friendly workers there on what’s available and inside of the burgers. This was delish as the chicken was crispy, juicy on the inside and the egg yolk was oozing out as you bite into it.

 

my burger lab bulbasaur
The Bulbasaur has fried chicken, fried egg, green salsa and a seaweed sauce. I like how the seaweed adds some saltiness while the salsa gives it some tangy taste to balance it out!

I do wish that we’re allowed to use a max of 2 vouchers per transaction so it’ll be more worth it since some vouchers are free add-ons and some are discounts. Hopefully in the oncoming Worthy Books there’ll be more of the hottest dining spots and we can use more than 1 voucher per visit.

Where did I get my Worthy Book?

Choi’s Don and Dak Gal Bi!

Just when you think you’ve run out of Dak Gal Bi joints to check out, then comes Choi’s Don & Dak! Opened by Mrs Choi who hails from Incheon, South Korea, her restaurant is where you need to go to taste really yummy Dak Gal Bi (Grilled Chicken) and Jumuluck (Grilled Pork). She prepares the marinades, side dishes and meat personally so that everything that comes out from the kitchen is up to her standard. Also, she’s all about fresh ingredients and using less oil and preservatives!

It’s just a few shop lots away from Snowflake.

 

The tables and grills are imported from South Korea which in a way, makes the experience more authentic, don’t you think?

 

I had the chance to try the grilled chicken and pork with other food bloggers. This here is the Jumuluck table where Mrs Choi said is with the spicy sauce. Price per person is RM22.50. Add RM2 if you want the spicy sauce.

 

This is the Dak Gal Bi table which I sat which had the non-spicy sauce. Both pans have the usual ingredients of cabbage, tokpokgi, mushrooms with the marinated meat at the bottom. Price per person is RM19.80.

 

 

It’s not completed yet!

 

At this stage, the waiter will add in the extra ingredients which you can order beforehand, here he added the mushrooms (RM8) and sausages (RM8).

 

At the last stage, usually they’ll add in the noodles, Korean udon noodles (RM7) was added to the Dak Gal Bi.

 

We asked the waiter to shape it into a heart since well, it’s good food porn! The chicken pieces was really tender and sweet, it was so flavourful thanks to the marinade! I like how you don’t feel very thirsty after eating this since it’s not overcooked and the ingredients are all fresh.

 

Here’s the Jumuluck pan, where the same add ons were added but instead of udon noodles, Korean ramyun noodles (RM6) were added instead.

 

And topped with Mozzarella cheese (RM8)!!!

 

Cheese is good!!! Also, it wasn’t as spicy as I expected. The pork pieces are marinated to perfection just like the chicken! However, I prefer the chicken, somehow it’s more sweeter and delicious!!!

 

She cooked us some Korean Ramyun (RM12) too which I think I had before but I can’t remember the brand and flavour. I thought it tasted a bit bland, maybe it’s because of the awesome grill meat.

 

Next, we tried the Korean Jjapaghetti (RM7.80). I guess this is instant noodles like the Korean ramyun. However, I have tried instant Jjajang noodles and I am not a big fan of them. I rather have the freshly made Jjangmyun because the sauce and noodles taste totally different and way nicer than the instant ones.
So, I’m not a fan of this.

 

Lastly, the waiter cooked us some Fried Rice with Dry Laver aka Seaweed (RM7). Cooked rice, seaweed, kimchi and cabbage are cooked in the empty pan because we basically finished both pans. That’s how good it is!

 

Heat some sesame oil then everything is cooked together. Then, it is flattened so that the bottom is evenly grilled and it’s scrapped into a roll and it goes into our tummy!

 

Most of us had Mocktails as it was recommended by Mrs Choi so they have the virgin Mojito and Pina Colada (Both are RM7.50 per glass). The mojito was refreshing after having grilled food while the pina colada has a strong coconut taste.

 

I had the Shirley Temple (RM6.50) which was a strawberry soda. I am not a fan of carbonated drinks but I like Shirley Temples!

 

Thank you Mrs Choi for your kind hospitality! I’m definitely coming back for your awesome Dak Gal Bi! 😀
