My friend use to walk pass Peck Seah St and saw a few korean restaurant there, so we decided to go there to have a try. We picked ChoWon Garden.
The place look quiet from the outside but actually their business was not bad. It loooks quiet because their seats was divided by tall walls which provide a more cozy and quiet environment for the customers. They have both the korean style of sitting on the floor and the normal style of place and chairs. And also they do have private rooms for bigger group. The whole restaurant just look simple but with very nice korean dishes. I think the boss & chef are korea.
We ordered a seafood steamboat which is around $30 to $40 for 2 pax. Portion was big and is enough for 3 pax. They come with some korean small dishes as appetizers. I just simply love how they seasoned the appetizers such as Kimchi, radish, anchovy, green veg. The kimchi taste really nice, purely made by korean.
The steamboat soup was well cooked. However the seafood in it was quite tasteless because they doesn't marinate. If u prefer the chinese style of steamboat then you might not like this. I think the taste of seafood all goes into the soup thta's why the seafood itself doesn't taste much. Just nice to eat the soup with instant noodle
One thing disappointed was the drink they provided in a jar. We were told it was green tea but it just taste weird. Doesn't taste like green tea and we don't know what we are drinking. Ha
Will go there to try their korean BBQ. However the ventilation there was not very good. Be prepare to be smelly after eating
