New Korean Find at Suntec!

I visited Suntec City recently and came across this new Korean restaurant. They are located near Din Tai Fung Restaurant. I ordered my usual dishes to gauge their food quality. Here's my verdict: - Kimchi Soup: This was my favorite dish. Unlike watery ones you find at most restaurants, the soup was 'thick' and chockful of kimchi, straw mushrooms. Delicious! - Wagyu Beef Short Rib: beef was well marinated and served on a hot plate. Good! - Seafood Pancake: instead of the huge portions that you are usually served, it was cut into nice bite sized pieces and nicely presented on a long plate with fresh salad vegetables. - Seafood rice in claypot: This was a unique dish that you don't get anywhere else. Oysters, prawns and other seafood places atop rice in a Claypot bowl, you can stir in soya sauce and enjoy, much like 'bibibamp' without the Korean sauce. Not heavy and refreshing. Nice. I will be back again when I need to get my fix for Korean food!

Disappointed with dinner!

Was really disappointed with the dinner that we had at Kimchi Suntec tonight.  We had previously tried their food about 1 year ago, which we found it to be satisfactory.  We were attracted by the large poster which showed attractive photographs of new dishes.  Thinking that the restaurant's food quality was similar to previous ones that we had tried, we decided to walk in.  However, once we entered the restaurant, we could sense that the ambience was different from what we have experienced previously.  Thought it was quite strange for the restaurant to sell titbits & sweets at the cashier and the fridge section. 
We ordered bibimpap which the waiter said would be accompanied by side dishes.  When the waiter brought the side dishes out, we were rather shocked by the small plates of half cooked bean sprouts and onion. The bibimpap rice was too soggy with only raw yellow, red peppers, carrots and some radish.   The soup was very saltish.  The quality of food was much lower from what we had previously experienced at the same restaurant.   

The three of us have spent more that $60 on the dinner.  We felt that we could get better quality bibimpap of cheaper cost at the food court elsewhere.  Would not be returning.

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 1234567), 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!

For the complete review and photos, click here (http://mediumrareandothers.blogspot.com/2015/01/kimchi-restaurant-suntec-city.html) Tired and hungry on a Sunday evening, this place's not one of our must-go list, but having sampled their food by authentic Korean chefs (who looked very much like K-pop stars on their own) at the Korean Food Fair 2014, an event held by the Korean Government held at Ngee Ann City Orchard, plus there is no queue, we thought, hey, why not? The left of the entrance is actually like a mini-mart that sells vegetables and Korean snacks. Very interesting, but definirely not cheap. The seating area is big, with quite a few tables catered for BBQ. As we wanted to just eat and go, we quickly wrote down our orders and passed the slip to the waiter. We waited for quite awhile for the food to arrive. I noticed this on the other table as well. Nonetheless, we tucked into our foods wholeheartedly. We ordered: Seafood Pancake
Beef Dolsot Bap
Pork Dolsot Bap
Kimchi Ramen Overall, the rice portion looks really small, but we learnt to finish the food before we judge. There's alot of meat, hence that amount of rice is actually more than enough. After the bowlful of egg and cabbage soup, it's really filling! The Beef Dolsot Bap is probably the most fragrant among all the three variants we tried. The Pork Dolsot Bap is too spicy, which led to the poor waiter keep coming over to refill my cup of water, and I couldn't enjoy the pork's taste. I hate situations like this, because I end up having to eat just so that I do not waste. Surprisingly, the Andong Chicken Dolsot Bap, which is one more level spicier than the Pork, seemed to be milder. Oh well, I am not one who can take spicy food well, so maybe I shouldn't have been so adventurous...
