*non-halal restaurant but no pork shown on this post 🙂 *
The restaurant name sounds a bit vulgar in Hokkien, don’t you think so? When I phone for reservation, I was greeted with Good evening, KNK restaurant. Phew…Lucky I never have to say, Hello…kanni chi kan ah? Hahaha. Pardon me for the thoughts. I shall payback by giving the place a mention on Malaysia Best.
I read about KNK and its charcoal yakiniku from BadBoyBen‘s blog. His photos got me drooling. We had dinner there last night to celebrate my 20th wedding anniversary. I got married at the restaurant below The Revolving 20 years ago and had wanted to return there for dinner for old time sake. But the thought of eating local foods was not so tempting. So, we decided to go to KNK.
I know Japanese beef are awfully expensive because the Japanese massage their cows, let them drink beer and give them piped in music. 200 grams of the best beef wagyu costs RM228. Eheh, I will go bankrupt if I order that for my hungry like wolves teens.
But fear not, KNK has cheaper sets at only RM118 for four persons. There are 900 grams of meat and seafoods there. So, we ordered a set plus some extra side dishes. The total bill is only RM258 and we were fed well already.
In the set, we get beef tongue, chicken, lamb, short ribs, ribeye, seafoods like large prawns, squids and other stuffs. It is fun to barbeque the meats and then, wrap it in the lettuce and sweetish sauce.
We order extra portion of the ribeyes because it was good. There are several prices for the ribeye, starting from RM20 to RM97 per portion.

They have sets for lunch and the prices are cheaper. So, if you are looking for a place to have yakiniku, try KNK. It doesn’t have any fancy looking Japanese ambience but the service is good. The staff who served us knows how to recommend and they are all awfully efficient.
