📍90 minutes (dhoby ghaut/bencoolen) @90minutes.sg

Adult Weekday Lunch Buffet ($15.90++)

Appetisers - Deep Fried Snacks Twigim (튀김)
The twigim was cooked a nice golden colour and were perfectly crispy on the outside without being overly greasy. We got fried chicken wings, Gimmari (crispy seaweed wrapped around glass noodles), fried sweet potato and fried mandu! We highly recommend the gimmari 김말이, a popular korean street food snack thats crispy on the outside and soft and chewy on the inside.
.
Korean Hotpot - Assorted Tteok
We went with the Classic soup base were pleasantly surprised when the soup turned out on the sweeter side! Those looking for a spicier soup can go for “The Best” or “The Bomb” where they add volcano sauce 🌋 or even try your hand at making your own sauce combi! We were delighted by the spread of foods we could add into our hotpot! The vegetable selection was quite good with your standard greens. Those looking for tteokbokki will surely not be disappointed as they have your classic long tteok as well as cheese-filled, sweet potato tteok and fun shaped tteok! Our personal favourites were the cheese and sweet potato ones as the fillings would ooze out once boiling in the broth. There was also eomuk (fishcake) on stick which really reminded us of the cold winter days in korea when we would huddle under food trucks and fill up on fish cake soup and skewers 🍢
.
Kimchi Fried Rice
Stuffed from the hotpot, we requested for a smaller portion of rice. We made sure to pile on some pork collar and wangbok greens to add more flavour to the mixture! A generous amount of seaweed, luncheon meat, sweet corn and kimchi were tossed into the pot along with rice and the staff would fry up some delicious Korean fried rice right in front of you!

Taste: 4.5/5

Overall: 4.5/5

We came here on a weekday lunch and the restaurant wasn’t too crowded! :D We really enjoyed our meal at 90minutes as the food was great and definitely value for money and the staff were friendly and attentive! We highly recommend leaving some space for the fried rice meal and saving some meat for that as well! It was really a great way to end our meal and we were so satisfied!! Will definitely be paying a visit to 90 minutes again for the hearty, value-for-money korean hotpot that they provide!

What do you normally do when you’re done with your hotpot? Turn it off, loosen your belt one last time and let out a legendary belch that can be heard around the world, right? Not at @90minutes.sg! Here, you finish your hotpot by frying rice in the same broth that you were previously using to cook all your meats & veg.⠀

The broth has been fortified by the flavours of everything you’ve been cooking in the pot, and all of that flavour is suffused into the rice, corn & seaweed. There’s no egg added into this rice, and it’s really just a fried rice. However, remember when I said that the cheese & corn was a surprise tool that would help us later? Well, the time is now.⠀

After the waitstaff is done frying up your rice, quickly dump all that cheese corn into the rice while it’s screaming hot for a sexy, stretchy & sumptuous carb & cheese laden end to your little pot session. Rice is nice, but with cheese it’s sure to please.⠀

Kamsahamnida for hosting us, @90minutes.sg & @burpple!

At @90minutes.sg , you get the option of adding on a molten cheese ring to your hotpot for $9.90++. As the name may suggest, it’s simply a metal ring filled with melted cheese & corn, and blowtorched for that aesthetic af crust. I haven’t been to a Korean hotpot in a while, so this is the first time I’ve seen a cheese ring and the hotpot be completely separate entities.⠀

The metal mammoth fits onto the handles of the pot, which isn’t very structurally sound especially when you’re digging out that cheese. But most notably of all is that the heat from the hotpot does not transfer over to the cheese ring at all. So this means that you gotta dig into that cheese as fast as possible before it gets cold & congealed, and you just gotta find a way to shoehorn it into every bite you take.⠀

90 Minutes does have some deep fried foods on the buffet line that are ready to eat if you simply can’t wait for your hotpot to boil over. The only really noteworthy fried food are the drum/winglets, which you can use as a very convenient implement to dig out that molten cheese & corn. The chicken wings are left out in the cold, so bring ‘em in and warm them up with the heat of the molten cheese & corn.⠀

While it might seem like the cheese ring isn’t quite worth the extra expense, I would still order it. Why? Well, it’s a surprise tool that will help us later. Trust me on this one.⠀

Thanks for the invite, @90minutes.sg & @burpple!

@90minutes.sg has absolutely nothing to do with football, but they have everything to do with tteokbokki (Korean rice cakes) & hotpot. In a Singapore that is admittedly over saturated by hotpot restaurants, 90 Minutes is a little different as they are a tteokbokki hotpot buffet place, plus they have a few truly unique hotpot broth bases.⠀

We chose ‘90mins The Best’ and ‘90mins Red Hot’ broth as our bases. The Red Hot, which is ironically the non spicy one, stood out more because the broth contained jajang paste (fermented black bean) and carried the unmistakable pungency of fermented black bean. It does get increasingly diluted the more you refill the pot with chicken stock, so it might be worth it to enquire if 90 Minutes do top off the seasoning mix after a couple of refills.⠀

The usual hotpot suspects are here, from the sweetcorn, to the leafy greens, to the thinly sliced pork belly, and the prawns. The vegetables were surprisingly fresh for a buffet joint, and the protein options, while not the freshest, were well within acceptable limits and they were free flow. Since this is a Korean restaurant, they’ve got the iconic fishcake on a stick, and it’s actually quite addictive after you let it sit in the boiling soup to soak up all the flavours like a sponge.⠀

As for the tteokbokki, which are 90 Minutes’ pride & joy, they come in four variants. The traditional plain one, sweet potato, yam, and cheese stuffed tteokbokki. The yellow sweet potato tteokbokki & the purple yam ones were stunningly sublime, with a delectable sweetness to both that compelled me to finish them all in short order. The cheese stuffed tteokbokki was incredibly unique, but the cheese tasted like butter instead of cheese for some reason. Still, the tteokbokki was good, and I even went back for seconds of sweet potato & yam tteokbokkis.⠀

At $23.90++ for weekday dinners, this is a superb budget buffet spot. Better yet, #burpplebeyond has 30% off lunch & dinner buffets for two! Thanks for the invite, @burpple & @90minutes.sg!

Do not get full from the hotpot! Leave some space (and soup) behind, so that the staff can use the remaining essence to cook up a bowl of fried rice for you. Taste wise, well, it's largely dependent on what you threw in your hotpot prior, so if you threw in lots of meat, then the fried rice is gonna taste like 1 😂
