GoroGoro Steamboat & Korean Buffet

When I first saw the name of the restaurant, I thought there’s some deep hidden meaning behind the name “GoroGoro”. The company website explains “the name actually are suggestions of a rumbling tummy when you are hungry, and the hot bubbling sound of the steamboat soups when they are boiling”. So much for deep meanings. 

GoroGoro Steamboat & Korean Buffet is one of the 5 restaurants managed by Kingdom Food Group, a Korean food group.

The outlet at The Centrepoint is brightly-lit with ample seating. The walls are decorated blue with the cartoonish GoroGoro and friends. 

GoroGoro Steamboat & Korean Buffet - Price

The main draw of GoroGoro Steamboat and Korean Buffet is its wallet-friendly prices. At S$16.90 – 26.90++ for lunch buffet and S$26.90 – 28.90++ for dinner buffet, it is one of the cheaper buffet in Singapore. There are discounts for students and senior citizens too, making it even more affordable.

GoroGoro Steamboat & Korean Buffet - Meaty Meat Madness

GoroGoro Steamboat & Korean Buffet - Seafood Fiesta

The vegetables, seafood and meat for the steamboat are separately placed in different stations. The ingredients are fresh, but I am disappointed with the lack of variety of seafood. There are only prawns, dory, mussels and squid.

GoroGoro Steamboat & Korean Buffet - Korean Snacks

There are around 20 cooked dishes that you can help yourself to as your steamboat cooks.
Although it’s supposed to be a Korean buffet, it is really more like a Singapore buffet where there is a little of everything. How else should I explain what is Mala Xiang Guo doing in a Korean buffet?

GoroGoro Steamboat & Korean Buffet - Desserts & Condiments

The desserts section is just as disappointing. There is only cut watermelon and honey dew and two dessert soups. 

I am sorry to say this but this is probably the first and last time I am going to GoroGoro Steamboat & Korean Buffet. This reminds me of Seoul Garden with its dismal selection of inferior ingredients, its only draw is the cheap pricing.

GoroGoro Steamboat & Korean Buffet is suitable for those who just want a variety of food for a cheap price but not for those who look for quality over quantity.
