Very fine shaved ice just the way I like it. The generous portions & price points here put many bingsoo outlets out there to shame.
Really enjoyed the different combinations of flavors and textures but that being said I think I'll just stick to the classic fried chicken the next time. 🙃
Pity that the overall dining experience was let down by subpar service 😒
A tad apprehensive at first as I didn’t enjoy the mul-naengmyun I had in Seoul a couple years back, their rendition was surprising good - having the right amount of mustard sauce and splash of vinegar to give it a pleasant piquant and tangy finish. Prepared typically with beef broth and “radish water kimchi” broth, the clear, icy-cold base was refreshingly sweet. The added textures from the shredded pear, crunchy cucumber, pickled radish, boiled egg, thin beef slices atop the small mountain of chewy buckwheat noodles and even the bits of ice; really enhanced the whole experience with all the elements harmonized. Also doubling up as a palate cleanser, the slurping-good bowl was the perfect ending after a satisfying yet hot, greasy barbecue.
This was a hosted meal.

Love the slightly foggy looking ginseng soup that was loaded with tender fall of the bone flesh!
Vanilla ice cream + cornflakes can never go wrong. The honeydew was a bit hard though.
Everything about this is comfort. Think bacon, chives, cheese, on a pancake base fried to a crisp. Not bad really, if only it wasn't half as oily/sinful and had actual pieces of kimchi instead. Not sure if bacon made for the best topping too, since the texture of fried bacon in itself is craggy, add that to the already-crisp pancake.
Portions here at this mod-Korean bar are on the small side for the price. They have makgeolli which tastes more like soda.
At this sleek Korean seafood joint on Amoy Street, you'll be served staggering seafood towers filled with ingredients like scallops, Boston lobsters and even Sri Lankan crab — all stacked on top of a soup broth of your choice (seafood, kimchi, ginseng or army stew (additional $10)). Each table bears its own in-built induction plate which heats the tower and keeps it steaming, allowing the natural flavours of the seafood to flow back down into the broth. Prices start from $58 for a Three-Tier Tower that is good for two to three to share, and go upward to $298 for a feast that would feed a group of eight to 10. We like how the restaurant thoughtfully includes dustbins built into the table for discarding your empty shells. Apart from their signature towers, they also serve Korean dishes like the incredibly flavourful Korean Ginseng Chicken Soup ($17.90) and a fun Shake Shake Rice Box ($9.90) that you have to rattle vigourously to mix all the ingredients!
Avg Price: $30 per person

If you're not in the mood for some crazy tiered-seafood, K Tower offers other dishes like this comforting ginseng chicken soup for the tired soul.
Clean, well-balanced and light, with distinct ginseng flavour without being too overpowering; this might be one of the better ones I've had in Singapore. Cooked for hours to get the best out of it so rest assured all that goodness comes with no MSG!
