5. Bornga $$
Along Jalan Wolter Monginsidi, or as we would like to call it ‘Jalan Korean Restaurant City’, your choices are seemingly endless when it comes to enjoying a good Korean Barbecue with your friends and family.
As you enter this place, it is set up like a typical Korean barbecue joint with its wooden interior, high ceiling and the very distinctive copper exhaust pipes hanging on top of each table aiming straight at the built in grill. Although this distinctive homey and rustic yet commercialised theme is embraced by many International Korean food lovers, the key to the a good Korean Barbecue is not the concept of the restaurants, rather what makes each place unique is of course; one, the appetizers or free side dished they serve and two; the special sauces in the barbecue.
