I remember the Seoul Garden’s glorious days when there is an outlet in almost every shopping mall and it was the synonym of Korean BBQ, but I have always felt that Seoul Garden is over-priced and lacks variety. Nowadays, the Korean BBQ chain has almost disappeared from the Singapre food scene. Seoul Garden has now come up with a new concept restaurant called Seoul Garden HotPot.
Curiosity got the better of me and I decided to check out the new concept restaurant by Seoul Garden.
Seoul Garden HotPot offers bibim bap, hotpot and jjigae.
Korean Pan-Fried Seafood Glass Noodle (Tang Hoon) is not a common sight in Singapore. Thick springy dangmyeon or Korean glass noodle are tossed together with rich earthy mushrooms, sesame oil and seafoods.The serving is moderate but surprisingly filling. It is a little salty though.
Most Singaporeans are probably familiar with Beef Bulggogi as it is a staple Korean food that can be found in any Korean restaurant. Tender beef slices are marinated in sauce made of soy sauce, sugar, garlic and pepper. The marinated beef are then pan-fried and served alongside kimchi, beansprouts and vegetable and a raw egg.
Prawn Omelette Kimgaru Bap is a simpler affair compared with Beef Bulggogi but is also delicious with an omelette that is runny on the inside and slightly crispy on the outside.
There is promotion of free-flow Cinnamon Tea. It is sweet with a tinge of spiciness that warms the very soul.
I can’t say I am really fond of the new concept outlets. Well, the food is edible and really just very normal. There is nothing here that makes me want to come back here again.
Addresses, telephone numbers and opening hours of all 5 outlets can be found here.
