Darac Bar and Grill

Move over folks! we have a new Korean restaurant in town; Darac Bar and Grill. Unlike its famous counterpart Oriental Spoon which is always cram with people, Darac Bar and Grill is a Korean restaurant offering dinners the luxury of eating in restaurant that offers ambience and service.

The interior has a wow factor for first time customers. Especially those who stop by just to get some lose change for parking, which according to the waiting staff is how people found out such place exist. The wall painting and dim light (not too dim) provide a relax environment for customers.

Although the food does not taste that authentic, it is still pretty good; always tempting one to say 'yum' when a dish is served. Darac Bar and Grill serves dishes from bulgogi to grill hamburger steak to delicious looking Korean stew. However, there is no Korean BBQ - but this is actually a good thing. Given the intimate atmosphere surrounding Darac Bar and Grill, the dining experience would be ruined if you went into a restaurant and came out smelling as though you have just been saved from a fire. Moreover, Darac Bar and Grill has good service; staff who don't show you the 'how can you not know what that is' look when you ask them what is a jap chae.

The take away box is another to brag about. Though I might say it is not very environmentally friendly. It does keep your food nice and neat and if you are a foodie and don't like your bulgogi to taste like salad and your salad tasting like bulgogi, Darac Bar and Grill might have a solution for it - observe Darac Bar and Grill take away box:

The name suggest alcohol, though they don't have a very wide selection of it. Their alcohol selection consist of beer and Soju ( a Korean alcohol). It is a nice place to have a quick drink with a friend however if you are looking for something heavier you might be disappointed. Polaroids are found clipped on a thin line near the bar. The cupboard behind the bar counter is not filled with alcohol instead it holds a kettle, tea cup and various objects for decoration purposes.

Lastly, Darac Bar and Grill would be an excellent choice for those craving for Korean yet does not want to smell bad after dinner or lunch.
