The end product after stiring and mixing the stew with the rice. WooSamYeop - $28
Highly recommended on the menu by Celebrity Chew Paik Jong Wong. This thinly slided beef was specially marinated. Samgyupsal (Grilled Pork Belly) - S$22.00
Even layers of fats well organised on the plate. Succulent porked belly, comes in 2 versions - Crissy and non crispy, specially done up by the chef. Yums! Roll up the meat with the lecture given, add some kimchi, shredded leeks and dab some sauce to your preferred taste . It is believed that by having the wrap eaten up in one mouth will actually give one good fortune! The pork belly and beef brisket was served! All curled up after cooking. The chef had demonstrated the recommended way of eating the brisket by rolling it up and filled with some cooked shredded leeks. Born-Ga Bulogogi - S$45.00
The best recommended dish on the menu by Chef Piak. Comes with beef brisket marinate with the in house Born-Ga's special sauce and boiled with vegetables (mushrooms, onions, enoki mushrooms), vermicelli and served like a korean way. If you like something sweet in the soup, this would probably be one of the better choices. The mixed berries dessert drink (Omija) that closed up the meal. A sour bowl of drink, chilled and is prepared to help in digestion especially after a meaty meal. Service
Excellent service from the guy who served us throughout. He was probably the team lead for the service section as the others were seen following instruction. Well-versed with the product knowledge, he explained the way he cooks and given us choices on how our food should be eaten and served. Alot of communication between us. Alot of "why" and "how" questions were thrown to him when he was serving our table, instead of getting frustrated by our "never-ending" questions, he had actually responded to us every detail in a friendly way. His sharing and service provided is definitely the best I seen so far from a generic restaurant like this. Thumbs up!
In the restaurant, every table is equipped with vacuum to suck away the oil mist and grease from the restaurant. Apart from that, the environment is quite hot due to the nature of business. I was told that usually after a rain, customers will prefer the seats outside as the place is rather windy and cooling. Price
A total damage of S$134.15 for 3 pax including 10% service charge and 7% GST. There are no preferred cards. Pricing was quite reasonable taking into consideration of its service and environment. However the wait was horrendous.
Recommendations / Tips
No reservations are considered. Just wait patiently - I had an hour wait before getting my seats.
