The Corner Place Korean BBQ

Some time ago, I bought a voucher from Groupon for a buffet lunch ($19.90 excluding GST and service charge) at The Corner Place Korean BBQ. It is located on level 4, where the food court is, on the right corner.  I guess that’s how the name comes about? =)

We made reservation a few weeks earlier because restaurants tend to be fully booked when vouchers are sold. The restaurant is very spacious and clean. There is plenty of space for customers to move around to get the food, but be prepared to smell of BBQ after the meal.
We were given a table of 4 seats which was good because we need table space to put all the plates of food.

The buffet includes the usual BBQ meat, seafood, veggies, cooked Korean food, side dishes, drinks, and 1 serving of tofu and pork soup per pax.

These are the meat and seafood counters. The dory fish, marinated beef and pork belly were really good.

These are the cooked food and salad counters. The items are replenished frequently and the counters were cleaned immediately when customers spilled sauces over.

Korean food

 

The Korean spicy chicken were pretty good. But we only eat a few pieces because our main focus was the BBQ meat.

Japchae

 

I like the Japchae~ It’s not oily and the vermicelli was still very springy.

The marinates tasted good. See how pink and fresh the pork belly was~

The aluminium foil was changed frequently by the staff, making BBQ slightly less carcinogenic. Or rather, I feel that it’s less carcinogenic. LOL~

We asked the staff to serve only 1 portion of the pork and tofu soup due to the limited space in our aging stomach. I really like the mildly spiced soup and wished that I could finished it all. It has the kind of comforting taste for rainy days.

Overall, I think this is a very value for money Korean BBQ in city hall area.

The restaurant has pretty good deals for lunch too. Do check out their facebook page for more information.

Korean BBQ Buffet @ Ju Shin Jung

This is another late post.
Pakcik and I went to Ju Shin Jung on a weekend earlier this month. We had the lunch buffet ($29++/pax) instead of ala carte. We were there at around 12+pm and still had plenty of time to enjoy our lunch because the last order is at 2.30pm.

For the buffet, it consists of 1 main dish per pax, free flow of pork and chicken for bbq, refillable ban chan, fresh veggies, water, tea and dessert. There are different types of pork and chicken to choose from and the staff will bbq it for us at our table. I chose the marinated chicken and pork belly only. For our mains, we had grilled saba fish and bibimbap.

Alright, here comes the pictures~

Dessert is the signature heart shaped watermelon and sweet rice drink. It was such a satisfying meal.
I just love dining at Ju Shin Jung~

Hard Rock Cafe

This year, my birthday dinner was at Hard Rock Cafe in Cuscaden Road. Pakcik said that we had too many buffet recently so no more buffet for the time being. He saw me watching Diners, Drive-ins and Dives everyday and always drool over the ribs and burgers that Guy Fieri eats, so he brought me to Hard Rock Cafe.

Frankly speaking, it’s the first time I stepped in a Hard Rock Cafe. Although the café is a bit old, the ambience is pretty good. And I like the chirpy staff who served our table.

Studying through the menu, I was trapped in the decision of whether to get a burger or ribs. When presented with too many choices, SK tends to not make any decision and leave the fate of her dinner to the dining partner.  When Pakcik asked what I wanted to eat, I tried to troll him by saying Seafood Char Kway Tiao. =P
And guess what, it’s really on the menu. They even have Nasi Goreng, Pho and Teriyaki Salmon! Interesting.

Enticed by the picture of the BBQ items, we ended up getting the trio combo, a jumbo starter and drinks.

So I had the Pina Colada. LL introduced this drink to me when we were in Bali earlier this year. This drink has a rich coconut taste with a hint of pineapple. Yummy~

I forgot what Pakcik ordered, but it was a bluish drink that was rather refreshing.

starter

So here’s the Jumbo Combo starter. It includes Santa Fe Spring Rolls with salsa, Hickory-Smoked Chicken Wings, Onion Rings, Potato Skins & Tupelo Chicken Tenders. Served with four different sauces: mayo, blue cheese, BBQ sauce and cheese.

onion rings

 

Special attention to the onion rings~ I like it a lot because of its crispy batter and juicy onion.

This is the Hickory smoked BBQ Trio Combo. It comes with BBQ ribs, BBQ chicken and smoked pulled pork and served with seasoned fries, ranch beans & fresh coleslaw. The ribs are good but kinda lack of meat. The half chicken was very tender and the pulled pork was pretty good too. Both of us almost couldn’t finish the food because we had such huge serving of starters.

Overall, it was a pretty good dinner~
