Powerplant @ Pearl Shopping Gallery

Furnished with foliage & fuelled by Korean fusion fare, Powerplant channels a cheeky sense of fun: Tapas-style treats include the perilously playful Mandu Roulette (RM19); one out of the five gochujang minced pork dumplings on the platter is electrifyingly spicier than the rest, even though they all look identical before being bitten into - this is ideal for sharing among adventurous companions. Other high-voltage temptations span the steamed & fried mantous, stuffed with a flavoursome mix of pork, pickles, carrots & kitchen-made kimchi mayonnaise (RM23), & the gluttony-generating potato wedges & fries slathered with cheese sauce, green onions, bacon bits, more of that kimchi mayo, & our favourite component, crispy pork lard (RM17).

Customers with an aversion to cheese may find their taste buds short-circuiting if they order the mozzarella-rich boneless garlic soy chicken wings (RM25) or the pizza topped with chicken, chives, crunchy ramyun noodles & hot pepper paste sauce (RM28); it may be necessary to recharge with a soju-flamed brownie (RM35) or cool cocktails with bases of soju & makgeolli, some showcasing surprising Korean-inspired ingredients like corn silk tea, a galbi marinade, & even noodles (RM25-RM35).

  1. I like what I see! So those chicken wings served with a pool of melted cheese is something I should avoid >.< but the rest, I can see myself enjoying especially the brownie :)

  2. Pearl Shopping Gallery? Old Klang Road. Is that Pearl Point where the hotel is or is this a new place altogether? Food looks good, and the place too - nothing like anything at Pearl Point, the one I used to know.

  3. When I read the name Powerplant, I wasn't expecting the place to be filled with...well, plants...kekeke! ;D Ah, so the name has something to do with their high-voltage spicier-than-norm food...ooo, I don't think I can handle such heat! ^_*

    1. Contact.ewew: heheh, yeah, i think they intended to have multiple layers of meaning for the name - i do like the decor, with its hybrid of industrial and green elements! :D and yeah, the spicy stuff was a tad too fiery for me too! :D
