UPDATE: We have decided to remove some establishments from this list based on feedback received from our readers. Some of these restaurants use halal meat and are pork free but there is doubt as to whether all their ingredients used are alcohol free. 😞 Restaurants that are Halal certified or pending certification still remain on our list but as always, please do your own checks before heading down. 😊

The K-wave has swept all over Malaysia, with good reason too! Comfort food, street food, spicy food, barbeque – Korean food has got it all and more.

If you can’t try halal Korean food in Korea, these restaurants in Kuala Lumpur are definitely the next best thing!

 

*Do note that most of these restaurants are NOT halal-certified, however, we have checked that they use halal suppliers for their ingredients / meat. We’ve marked them accordingly. All information is accurate at time of posting. We advise all readers to double check before visiting and to visit at their own discretion. 

1. Sweetree

Sweetree not only serves certified halal Korean food, it also has a culture centre – the Episode On Culture Centre where they hold bazaars, classes and the likes. Sweetree is a place to chill in a cosy environment or even host a party at!

Besides traditional Korean dishes like samgyetang and kimchi jjigae, Sweetree also has other cusines such as Malaysian style kampung fried rice, Italian pasta and even Vietnamese beef noodles – Definitely a place that will please almost any palate.

2. Kyochon (Pending halal certification from JAKIM)

One of our writer’s favourite places to get a comforting bowl of sundubu jjigae, B.Bap serves various types of bibimbap, noodles, rice and snacks (traditional kim bap or fried chicken anyone?).

    • Hi,Thank you for visiting our blog! We called each of the eateries to clarify on the status of the restaurant and from the feedback we received, we called Jakim, which advised us to remove 2 restaurants from our list. For those remaining on our list, they're either pending certification or are already certified. As always, we advise our readers to dine at their own discretion. Thank you for your feedback and for your support! :)
  • Hi, when you said you've removed 2 restaurants from the list, does it means they are Sopoong and Bbap? Because I wonder why the review for both restaurants got crossed entirely.
    • Hi Mira! We personally checked with the restaurants and the meat used is halal and they are pork free but there is doubt as to whether all their ingredients used are alcohol free, hence why we crossed it out. We advise you to dine there at your own discretion :) Hope this clarifies!
    • Hi Najwa,Seoul Garden only has Jakim certification in some of their outlets in other states (Penang, Perak, Johor etc). You can check which ones have halal certification from their website. We would advise you to call the restaurant that yo would like to visit for clarification. This article only lists some restaurants in KL :)
  • […] kimchi right from kimchi land? Sign us up please. Korean food just tastes so so good, and while you can easily get it in KL, nothing beats eating your bibimbap, samgyetang, bulgogi, etc in Seoul, […]
  • I've been to SweetTree, B.Bap and Dubuyo. Among these 3 I think bulgogi is the best for their Bibimbap. For Kimbap, the best one is b.Bap Restaurant. May I know why you didn't include Bulgogi brothers cos they've the best Kimchi so far.
  • Hey, thank you for sharing this! Was wondering why you cancelled Sopoong? I was going to try it, is it not halal? And halal meat available meaning they also serve non-halal meats?
    • Hi! We decided to remove some establishments based on feedback from our readers as there is doubt whether all their ingredients used are alcohol-free. Also, from what we've checked, there is halal meat at these establishments. However, we're unsure if all the meat sold in the restaurant is halal. It'll be best to double check with the restaurants before visiting them :)
  • Thank you for the guidance! May Allah rewards u!Btw, I think it need to be update eventhough this article already satisfied! (Sorry if im mistaken )Thanks again!
  • You should include Kung Jung. A favorite among Korean expats here (a testament on its own). Dubuyo is a joke! Oiso in Menara Hap Seng also frequented by Korean working in the tower, tho slightly of lesser quality.
      • Hi, do you mind to get information for Chicken Up located at SS 15, Subang Jaya for their chicken & other ingredient halal status? I mean their supplier.I can confirm they do not have Jakim Halal cert because they are serving Soju & other alcohol.Thank you in advanced.
