Apple Samgyupsal - Korean Three Layered Pork

I was in Taman Desa a couple of weeks ago when I saw this new restaurant called Apple Samgyupsal - three layered pork belly - and told myself I must try it soon. I texted my good friend pork fan Wee Yin immediately and we made our way there today. 

Samgyupsal is Korean for 三层肉 or saam cang yuk in Cantonese. And it's grilled over a hot plate. 

First, banchan is served. The apple salad is really good.  All these are refillable. 

The beauty of this place is that it uses hot burning charcoal. 

A hot plate is placed over it. 

We ordered the Apple Platter that came with 삼겹살 samgyupsal (three layered pork belly), 항정살 hangjeongsal (pork collar), and 목살 moksal (pork neck or shoulder), 소시지 sosiji (sausage) and 떡 tteok (rice cake). 

The scissors provided weren't sharp enough in my opinion and it's a good thing they helped us. The meat are all cut into strips...

... and further grilled. Notice the apple slices...

...for wrapping. 

The weather was good alfresco but we were soon sweating in the heat. 

It was a very satisfying meal. If you would like to try it, you need to be there early. We arrived at 6:30pm and when we left at 7:30pm, people were lining up waiting for an empty table, and with the crowd they don't take reservations. 

And if you would like try 소주 soju and 막걸리 makgeolli (rice wine), they serve it too. We don't drink and I dare not try it, not yet...
