Set Lunch @ Korea House, SS2

One of the better lunch deals around this area. Starting from RM9.90 only per person (there are other pricier options), the varieties available are surprisingly quite a few.

I opted for a grilled fish set. Served in a bento box, it came together with a few side dishes such as the essential kimchi, slices of egg pancake, and other assorted vegetables-based appetizers.

I like the sauce that came with the grilled fish. Sweet-ish and slightly spicy, it was really appetizing. The fish itself was ok, no apparent fishy taste to it but boy, there was like a thousand small bones in the fish. It was annoying to keep having to pick the bones out from my mouth although I already tried to pick them out from the flesh before eating it. Really, really annoying....

My lunch partner chose the fried chicken option (or was it fried pork?). Anyhow, it was delicious. The batter was quite similar to "tempura" batter, being fluffy and crispy at the same time yet surprisingly, greaseless.
Edited: I think this dish is called Sweet Marinated Pork on the menu.

We were also served complimentary soup as starter as well as a dessert at the end of the meal. The complimentary soup was a simple and nourishing seaweed soup. I like! I can' really say the same for the dessert though. It was some kind of chilled ginger-based tongshui (sweet broth) but was too sweet for my tastebud.

Overall, I would still recommend this place for lunch. Their set lunches are a bargain, rice tea is complimentary and service was not bad too. Oh, I should also mention that all sets come with a bowl of rice.
