This store is one of the stores in the food court of JEM. Situated at the uppermost floor, the food court boosts a large variety of different cuisines. From mini hot-pots to korean, it seems larger than the normal food court at other shopping malls. After walking around the food court twice, I decided to try the korean stall as I could see them slowly brewing the ddeokbboki (korean rice cakes) at the counter!

After walking around the food court twice, I decided to try the korean stall as I could see them slowly brewing the ddeokbboki (korean rice cakes) at the counter! The steam that was rising from the pot felt like a tiny volcano waiting to erupt! Upon deliberation, i decided to try the hot stone bulgoli with vegetable soup ($7.30). I did not pick the ddeokbboki as it was about 5 rice cakes with cup noodles type of noodle for about $5.90 or so which i felt wasn't that worth it. I choose the with with beef (option of chicken/beef/pork). The picture doesn't do the food justice as it was really good! I think it was worth the price. Just felt that there should be a tad less pepper sprinkled in so that I can taste the sweetness of the beef. As it was a vegetable soup, the vegetable was in abundance. They also added glass noodle in and I felt that for a small eater like me, I could do without the rice. The kimchi as a side dish also woke up my tastebuds and left me craving for more! It was not extremely spicy and was refreshing at the same time.
I also really like the auntie as she was a Korean (strong accent!) I asked for some sesame seed on my rice and she gladly obliged and while I was taking my cutlery she gave me even more! So generous
Although the food were mostly on the pricey side at that food court, I would go back to try this korean stall after I've finished trying the other stalls as the service and food they provided was really top notch!
