I really want to write a review for this place because I think it’s one of the better Korean BBQ buffets I’ve gone to . The prices are very worth going for and the variety is good .
Price List . The fact that it’s a buffet and the prices stated are Net , it’s quite worth one’s money .
So the moment you take your seat , the waiter will bring you a pitcher of cold water , some scissors and tongs (which you will find really useful) .
Soft drinks are available at the counter . There is also this Korean Rice Water that tastes very similar to barley water , it isn’t overly sweet and I did take many refills of it .
I will also mention that drinks are also free flow (some buffets don’t offer free flow) .
What I like about the variety of food here is that they do provide quite good cuts of meat , including chicken , pork and beef . Seafood , vegetables and other misc. items also available . The pieces of meat are all quite big (look at the steaks !) and they also provide pork belly !
(For the meat , top row is non-spicy , bottom row is spicy .)
The watermelon is the only available fruit but it is quite sweet .
Korean spicy rice cakes .
Fried Dumpling and Tempura Prawn .
Kimchi Soup and Seaweed Soup .
There is also white rice available if you’re particularly hungry .
So we pretty much tried all the non-spicy meat choices since neither of us took spicy foods .We skipped the Korean rice cakes as well as they were spicy .
The coleslaw was cold and tasted good .
The tempura prawn was crunchy on the outside and soft on the inside , and the seasoning was just right . The only problem was that the breading overpowered the amount of prawn in it .
The fried dumpling was also quite good although it was a little cold .
The grill cooks the meat really fast too , so you don’t have to wait very long for them to cook . Then again , beef steaks are best when they’re not fully cooked !
The one with the bone – the beef steak that tasted heavily like lamb .
The large slabs of beef slices are very juicy and tender and I can easily bite through them . The seasoning is also adequate and I could taste ginger in it .
The beef steaks has a stronger flavour and taste compared to the slabs of beef slices . They are juicy too , but with a little more chewing . The seasoning may be a tad salty for some people , but goes well with some white rice . The strong taste could also translate into the taste and smell of lamb/mutton , this was something both my friend and I felt .
The pork collar and pork belly are marinated nicely and quite juicy too ! It’s really rare to see buffets providing pork belly as they’re quite expensive .
The chicken was juicy but very salty . They would still go fine with rice though .
The Kimchi Soup has tomato , mince meat and tofu . It is slightly sweet and sour and a little salty . Not really all that spicy .
The Seaweed Soup has seaweed , mince meat and tofu . The soup is lightly salted and may taste bland but it’s to my liking , and would go well with the rather salty meats .
Verdict : We actually visited this restaurant because it was located close to where my friend lived . It’s quite a surprise that the new ITE Headquarters in Ang Mo Kio has so many stores that made it feel like a mini mall , with supermarkets , bookshops , computer gadget stores and a few different restaurants .I was quite impressed with the price and the variety of food available , some hits and some misses but overall it was a good place to have lunch .
I’d say it would be better to go during a holiday (we went during the school holidays) then there would be fewer people as this is located in an ITE . That , or maybe drop them a call before you head down ?
This restaurant is also non-Halal as they do serve pork and alcohol .
