Now that we have a 2-month old baby, life is VERY different. These days, destinations for our weekend family outings tend to be those that are baby-friendly (read: places that have baby changing rooms). We also tend to head for malls that can satisfy all our needs under one roof — namely dining and grocery shopping.
One such outing was at Plaza Singapura. When it came to dinner, we were enticed by this quaint-looking, country cottage-like Korean diner. As this casual eatery is by the same management of Manna Korean Restaurant — one of the pioneers for authentic Korean cuisine in Singapore — expectations were rather high.
This was very promising. Generously studded with chopped squid, onion, carrot, and spring onion, the kimchi pancake was delightfully crisp around the edges. A pity the center was too thick, resulting in an undercooked gooey texture.
This was part of a rice set. Crisp skin with gorgeously juicy flesh, we could find no fault with the grilled mackerel.
A pity, then, that the ban chan (side dishes) were severely lacklustre. Especially insipid was the weak kimchi.
The hot stone bowl bibimbap would have been immensely satisfying, if not for the soggy and mushy rice grains.
Total bill after 10% service charge and 7% GST was S$36.95.
Would we come back? Yes, if they fixed the kinks mentioned above. Marginally better but significantly pricier than food court standards, we thought the food we had was fairly decent but wasn’t quite worth the price.
