My girlfriends and I arrived at Kimchi Korean
on a weekday evening with much anticipation. And because we were a big group of 7, we were given a room! Well, okie. It was actually a big room divided into 2 smaller rooms with foldable partition wall. We did not realise we were actually sharing the space with another group (till after dinner) and were talking way too loud. Oops.
The only con of being housed in the room was that it was impossible to get the attention of the staff. We had to step out when we wanted to place additional orders, etc. And to place our orders, we were to write the codes of the respective dishes onto the order slip before passing it to the staff.
And from the menu (pages 1
), we ordered:-
1) Mushroom BBQ, $6.80
2) Marinated chicken, $16
– The chicken pieces were big and thick, and thus took longer to cook. To ensure the meat was thoroughly cooked, we used the scissors to cut them into smaller pieces.
3) Pork belly, $18
4) Kim mari, $4
– Deep fried Korean seaweed wrap, glass noodle, mayonnaise
5) Gun mandu, $3
– Fried Korean pork dumpling served with Korean yang yeom sauce.
I did not like this. Couldn’t see or taste any meat. It seemed to be dumplings of glass noodle instead.
6) Jap chae, $7.80
– Korean glass noodle stir fried with vegetables.
This was good. As the portion was small, we ordered second for this to get more of it! Think thick strands of chewy glass noodles. Nice.
Due to the (silly) 3000 characters limit, continue to read my review on other dishes here:PART2
12) Jang eo jeon bok dolsot bap, $33
– Korean rice, bean sprout, Chinese chive, salmon, scallop, marinated eel fish, abalone, pollack roe, egg sunny side up in hot stone served with Korean seaweed, egg soup + Korean side dishes.
Another must try! And it was an accidental find when we did not stir the rice properly which allowed the rice that was in direct contact with the hot stone pot to be slightly burnt such that it had a slight crunch. I think the Koreans call that scorched rice. Really nice.
13) Kimchi jjigae, $11.90
– Korean traditional kimchi soup, pork, vegetables, tofu.
Since the portions at Kimchi Korean were small and the 7 of us were still hungry, my salt-inhaling girlfriends decided to order this as they felt they did not have enough of the dish ‘kimchi ramen’. Kimchi soup = Kimchi ramen - noodle. But thankfully, this wasn’t salty. But the soup was spicy!
My girlfriends and I enjoyed ourselves. Food was reasonably priced and we got to try many dishes from the menu. However, Kimchi Korean
could improve the service by running through our order slips when we submit it. We happened to pen down the wrong code which got us trying the black chicken. Which… Was left almost untouched. Ha. And Kimchi Korean
being located in Suntec City made it a very convenient place for friends to gather and meet for meal!
