This Kkongdon Barbeque outlet is located at the first floor of Toa Payoh Safra, about a 10 minutes walk away from Toa Payoh MRT station. A convenient location to have a satisfying meal if you are around the area, or at the Safra enjoying their facilities.This is my first time dining at Kkongdon Barbeque and I was pleasantly surprised at how clean & well furnished the restaurant is. Each table comes with its own BBQ stove pan and smoke vent. The height of the smoke vent can also be adjusted. When
For my mains, I ordered a Short Rib with Black Pepper & Pork Belly Set ($20.80) to share with my colleague. The set comes with a good portion of meat enough for 2 person to share. The pork belly although a little fatty, is good for oiling the pan as well so the food doesnt get burnt.
The Short Rib marinated with Black Pepper was too spicy for us as we cant take heat well. We feedback to one of the staff about this and she immediately suggested helping us to wash away some of the black pepper on the meat.
Kudos to her and her great service that we do not have to let the meat go to waste. Instead we actually enjoyed the short ribs as the meat was fresh & tasty, after taking away the overpowering black pepper.
Also included in the set is a bowl of Chicken Bean Paste stew soup, and a small portion Korean rice cakes. The Chicken Bean Paste soup is very tasty, with flavours of the Korean miso but not too salty. It comes with generous amount of ingredients like chicken, cucumber, golden mushroom & tofu. The rice cakes are chewy although the sauce that comes with it is a little bland. An okay complimentary dish.
Overall my experience at Kkongdon Barbeque was great. Although it was Ala carte style, the food served was more than enough.. with free flow salad bar, meat, soup & rice cakes for less than $30 for 2 pax, I would say that it is really affordable & worth it.
Coupled with a nicely furnished relaxing setting and great service, I would definitely come back again with some friends for a get-together eating session!
