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.

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



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.


Samyang Fried Spicy Chicken Noodles

Some time ago, I wrote about this very spicy Korean instant noodles which almost “killed” me. Guess what? I found it in the supermarket already! Both Lotte mart and NTUC Xtra sells this Samyang Fried Spicy Chicken Noodles. They come in packs of 5 for around $6.90 (in NTUC Xtra) which you need to cook in a pot of water, and also the cup noodles form which costs about $2 (in Lotte mart).

Here’s the cup noodles form.

This is more convenient because I don’t need to wash another pot after cooking the noodles. I simply need to add hot water in, cover and wait for 3-4 mins, then drain off the water.

There is a hot sauce pack (the one that kills) and a garnish pack (seaweed and white sesame).

Add in both the seasoning packs to the drained noodles. Then stir well.

So here comes the bowl of extremely spicy noodles. I would advise to prepare a cup of milk to put out the fire while you eat. For me, I shared it with Pakcik because I just couldn’t finish it all. Both our lips swell and we sweat profusely.
Oh, by the way, the other side of your GI tract will be on fire the next day.
You have been warned.


Korean Spicy Chicken Instant Noodles

Korean instant noodles

Have anyone seen this Korean instant noodles in Singapore?

I have been trying to find this noodles since my bro let me try it. This is the spiciest dry instant noodles I have ever eaten. It literally numbs my lips, tongue, and scalp. My hands were shaking, my throat burning, and sweat broke out uncontrollably. No, I am not exaggerating. Usually, I am quite immune to chili padi and stuff, but this korean chili paste, it almost killed me.
Although it’s so spicy, the noodles taste very fragrant and make me crave for more even though my tongue and throat were protesting.

I found it in Qoo10 but it’s crazily $6 per pack. So if anyone has seen it in any Singapore’s supermarket, please let me know.
