This is a Korean restaurant located at Dempsey. They are located in the same block as, and is locate directly behind Huber’s Butchery.
I have driven past this restaurant several times, and I popped it recently for lunch. Its hot, and the air-conditioned restaurant is a welcome respite from the heat outside. They also have an outdoor alfresco area, which will be good for evenings, to have BBQ while enjoying the evening breeze and watching the world go by.
Here are the highlights of my meal:
- Preserved kimchi stew with pork: This is a soupy stew, which is made with aged kimchi. Aged kimchi is more mellow and a deeper flavour which is present in the soup. Younger kimchi which is usually served as a side dish is crunchier and sharper taste. The soup tastes good and I went for second helpings. The ingredients – tofu, pork and kimchi were good.
- Sashimi Salad: This is special, where fresh beef is cut into strips. This dish also had pear cut into strips. It looked like radish. Its topped with an egg yolk tableside and the manager mixed all the ingredients together. The first taste was ‘wow’. Its really tasty and yummy. The beef has to be really fresh for it to be served raw. Recommended for beef lovers and those who like something unique!
- Pumpkin with beef bulgogi: This was unique. The beef bulgogi was cooked and placed into a whole pumpkin. At the table side, the pumpkin was cut into quarters and it resembled an open flower. Beef is well marinated and cooked and goes perfectly with the pumpkin. Lovely.
It’s a good first outing to this restaurant, and I will be back again to try out their grilled meats next time.
Best thing about the restaurant is that parking is free, which is rare in Singapore.
