We wanted to try another highly raved Korean bbq buffet at Tanjong Pagar but gave up when we saw the queue. Was trying to satisfy the birthday boy’s craving for meat & we chanced upon this place further across the road.
The side dishes that accompanied the meal.
Ikan Bilis – One of our favorite.
Kimchi – This is my favorite.
We ordered the Beef & Pork Set ($60) – Included in the set is 1 portion each of prime beef short ribs, beef short ribs, sliced pork belly & pork short ribs.
The pork short ribs are nicely marinated & very tasty. The staff there does the bbq for us & most of the time the meat were nicely cooked. We also like the bbq king oyster mushroom with the meat.
They do provide a basket of fresh lettuce. It does help a bit to remove the greasy taste in your mouth. A healthier choice too perhaps.
Kimchi Soup ($12) – According to him, the kimchi soup tasted authentic. It’s a little too spicy for me though. It comes together with a bowl of rice.
There’s a smoke exhuast hood on top of every bbq stove. You can adjust the height of the hood higher or lower. This helps a lot in keeping the smell & smoke away from us. Though it’s pricier compared to the other Korean bbq joints, we enjoyed the quality meat & preferred the ambiance of this place.
