Korean BBQ is a restaurant serving Korean cuisines, located at level 2 in City Square Mall.
It's funny because that the last time I had any Korean BBQ was in Yangoon, Myanmar having only taken it once at Sheraton Walker Hill Resort near Seoul. The experience in Yangoon was better than in Seoul, because of the lower price and the better quality meats and the freshest of vegetables in Myanmar (they don't have too much money to buy fertiliser you see, so most of the vegs in Myanmar are organic).
Ambience: It's in a new mall so the restaurant is in the open air with the atrium as the ceiling, more modern than Korean. Decorated with pyramids of Korean soft drinks, beer and soju,
Food: Fresh vegs "fa cai" served with the meats (beef, pork, chicken) with tons of side dishes. The Korean slightly spicy sauce dip was delicious, and added to the pork or beef pieces, you eat it wrapped in the fa cai veg and chomp on it whole, just like in the Korean movies. We enjoyed 4 types of soups, chiken ginseng, seaweed, miso and fish cake soup. The miso soup was outstanding followed by the fish cake soup, which tasted like the fish maw soup I just had for Chinese New Year. The side dishes were OK and my favourite is the slices of marinated potato.
Value: Good value, especially since the veg and meat ingredients are fresh, kimchi prepared here too (not the canned variety).
Service: Friendly pretty Korean speaking waiters. Attentive, helpful and explains how to eat the food.
A group of friends and I had Korean BBQ some months ago. This food is not worth trying especially if you love beef. We have to pay extra for beef slices and it is not cheap.
However, if you love all the other korean dishes such as Kim Chi Soup, pancake etc, you can get it at Korean BBQ together with the buffet. If you love meat, try Jang Shou at Katong Village or 2D1N! They serve much better meat!
