Korean casual dining restaurant in the corner of Square 2.
We went there to try this resaurant yesterday. Similarly we have the set lunch for 2 person with bills totally around $36 after GST and service charge.
They serve korean barley tea with refills which taste like bitter chinese tea.
The main dishes we have is the hotpot mixed rice and the Fried korean glass noodle with beef.
My husgand find the Kimchi a bit more sour than spicy.
But we like the fried class noodle as it is not oily and the taste is just nice.
We find the hotpot mixed rice a bit bland bland though we have done a thorough mixup of the ingredients. However, we like to scrap the layer which is burnt at the bottom.
Last is the dessert of yoghurt ice-cream with banana, watermelons and pineapples. We feel getting being bite in the tonuge after eating the pineapple. Could be due to the rawness.
All in all, everything is still acceptable and I would like to go back to try the kimchi soup and the premium set luch which is at $36.99 before tax and service charge.
One more point of compliment is the environment is very friendly and they have background soft music which made a relax sitting.
Seoul Yummy, another casual dining place that serves Korean food with its entrance hidden at the corner of third floor.
First up was the Hotplate Spicy Octopus – it comes with a good bite and was crunchy. The gravy is quite spicy to eat it on its own but pair it with a bowl of sticky white rice should do the trick.
The Shrimp Roe Beef Hotpot Mixed Rice was one of my favourite dishes – akin to claypot rice, the bottom of the rice was crisp and the shrimp roe adds a nice twist to this dish.
Steamed Kimchi with Pork Dumplings was quite a disappointment – there wasn’t any hint of kimchi in it and we found the meat too overwhelming. The skin of the dumpling is also not the best we have tried.
Everyone’s favourite for the day belongs to the Special Trio Bingsu, or Yoghurt Ice Cream with Kiwi, Strawberry & Red Bean Toppings. The dessert was served on a bed of ice shavings thus every spoonful was delightfully chilled. Ice cream comes with a tint of sourness that should be the way a natural flavoured yoghurt ice cream should taste like (Yoguru might wish to take heed).

Seoul Yummy is a Korean restaurant located in a corner of Square 2 (Novena Square). I've been to Seoul Yummy twice before - and ate the Kimchi Tofu Soup as well as the Chicken Hotplate previously, but this review will be on the Set Dinner for 2 persons ($30.99 for 2 ppl) Its $36 after the taxes.
The dinner consists of a generous amount of food, and in my opinion, completely worth the 18 bucks. It also comes with a free flow of Korean Barley Tea (hot/cold).
Ban Chan (Appetiser) was some coleslaw, kimchi, ikan billis with chilli, pickled cucumbers and a piece of cold tofu. I really like the Korean side dishes and that's why I particularly like Crystal Jade Korean, cos the side dishes are free flow.
For the starter, there's a choice of either Kimchi Mandoo (Steamed Kimchi with Pork Dumplings) or Cheul Pan Gamja Jeos (Hotplate potato pancake). We took the pork dumplings, which were like gyoza but with the sourish spicy taste of kimchi. There was also alot of juices inside the dumpling and the skin is tender and moist.
Next up was a noodle dish (out of 2 choices) and Bibimbab. The Dolsot Bibimbap is a hotpot of mixed rice and it comes with beef. The restaurant is very flexible with the menu and allowed us to change the beef to chicken. Eating Bibimbab stresses me alot because if you don't stir and mix the rice fast enough, it tends to burn and stick to the pot. Good for those people who enjoy eating the crispy layer out of the bottom of the claypot. The chicken is exactly like the hotplate chicken that you will get in this restaurant ($9 something for a huge plate). I liked the overall taste of the Bibimbap, with the egg coating each rice grain well and all the crunchy vegetables and sesame seeds.
There are 2 choices of Myon (noodles) - either Chap Chae Bokkeum or Woo Dong Bokkeum (Woo Dong, as you can guess, is actually udon, and it's fried with seafood and beef). We got the Chap Chae Bokkeum (Fried Korean Glass Noodles with Seafood and Beef). The noodles were nicely done- slightly springy, not soggy, but I found it slightly too sweet for my liking.
To end our overly satisfying meal, we had a Mini Tropical Delight Bingsu each (included in the set menu), which consists of a refreshing light yoghurt ice cream with fresh bananas, pineapple and watermelon. Though the whole bottom part of the bowl is just plain ice, the dessert was of a good size, especially since we were so full from the meal already.
Overall, I think that the restaurant is really value for money and for $18 per person, I had a very filling and tastey meal.
I will definitely go back for more Korean food :)
