Basically my 2nd Home

I've been to Ju Shin Jung countless of times, it all began when neighboring restaurant Waraku continuously served us food that was no longer as spectacular as before. One day, Dad said, "What's that huge building over there? Let's check it out." And that day was the day I fell in love with Korean cuisine. Okay story time ends here. I usually come here with the family whenever we're hungry regardless of whatever we crave for. The side dishes are great, especially the mashed potato which reminds me of an ice cream scoop and the spinach. I've come here for years that we've seen the Korean style ikan bilis switch to a fish cake stir fry to pickled radish. We usually order marinated beef and marinated chicken, the extra seasoning is what we prefer over the pure natural beef flavor. It is sweet and savory, goes great with ssamjang (soybean based sauce) and lettuce. My brother sometimes gets so desperate that he bites the remaining meat left on the beef bone! Not only the food is awesome, but the staff are also friendly and attentive. We've made friends with the Chinese female manager (she wears black clothes unlike the others' white) who is able to speak Korean fluently. She also usually gives us a complimentary steamed egg side dish which we always decline but it gets served anyway :) that's how delicious the food is for us to return without fail each time :D The meal is always finished with watermelon hearts, sometimes they're a little stale but others really juicy, and also with ginger tea which my parents always dilute with the given cold water because it's a bit too strong to their liking. Overall it is the best Korean restaurant by far, every time we try out a new Korean place we always say "Ju shin Jing's better!"

Not a place for Samgetang

It is a total disappointment to have a Samgetang without stuffed ginseng nor its taste at all. According to the chef, the ginseng is cooked in soup and not stuffed in the chicken. I believe the supermarkets sell better Samgetang

Ju Shin Jung East – Unlimited Korean BBQ

For the full review and photos, click here:
http://www.chubbybotakkoala.com/2013/07/ju-shin-jung-east-unlimited-korean-bbq.html

This time around we went there for Unlimited BBQ, available from Monday – Thursday, $35++ for Adult and $19++ for children (0.9-1.2m). You can choose from Pork Collar, Pork Belly, Marinated pork & Marinated chicken for the meat selection. Together with this Unlimited BBQ, each one of the diners can choose one of soup selection: Kimchi soup with pork, soyabean soup, tofu soup with seafood, cold soup noodle, spicy dried cold noodle and seafood noodle.   As Little Devil ('LD') and I have other appointment afterwards, we decided to ask the service staff to do the BBQ-ing for us.   The thing about JSJE is they are not 'stingy' about their bachan (side dish). You'll get the spinach, kimchi, summer salad, salads with dressing, tofu, mash potatoes, marinated radish, seaweed soup, pickled onions, fresh vegetables, garlic and chilli to wrap the BBQ meat. All the side dish are home made, fresh and you can have as much as you want; It will be replenish as soon as you are finished.   The pork belly here is the thick version. It is nicely done with good charred on the meat, while the texture remain juicy and succulent. The same can be said for the pork collar. The BBQ chicken is well marinated, it is BBQ to perfection. Slightly crispy charred on the outside, but succulent on the inside.   For unlimited BBQ, JSJE has a promotion of 50% discount on the beef option. We decided to order Wagyu beef for $29.50 discounted from $59. The beef was cooked to medium, it is tender and juicy, however does not reach the stage where it melts in your mouth. A bit disappointing, I expect the Wagyu is of higher grade and the restaurant should have more experienced in BBQing the meat. Luckily we are only paying half price.   As I don't fancy kimchi or spicy soup, LD ordered a beef soup for me. The broth of the soup is robust and well seasoned. The beef has been cooked for a long period until it is tender and fell of the bone. It is very common that kids in Korea to drink beef soup as it provide extra nutrition for them.   To end the meal, they will serve you the heart shape watermelon and cold ginger cinnamon sweet tea.   Service staff in the restaurant is good, friendly and capable. You can see from the way they bbq our meat. However, I can't say the same about the unfriendly receptionist they posted on the 1st floor. As it is located on the 2nd floor, from the main entrance you will only see stairs to climb up. However, if needed there is a lift to your right, after the Burger King.   Overall, we find JSJE consistently provide good quality Korean food. For price, it might be slightly on the high side, however you are getting what you pay for. Service level can be improved, especially on the reception side. If you are nearby during lunch hour, JSJE provide a good value set lunch menu. Cheers!!
