...I see food, and I eat it. Especially if it's as good as Joo Bar's rendition of a classic seafood risotto. Their seafood gochujang risotto ($24++) switches the standard seafood broth out for a luscious, thick and creamy red pepper paste cream sauce which is derived from the ubiquitous gochujang paste.

The only downer about this risotto is that the king prawn in it had lost its freshness, resulting in a mushy and pasty texture. Other than that, it was a masterclass in how to take the fusion out of confusion.

The rice itself is cooked to a perfect, astonishingly al dente doneness, resulting in tender little pearls that simply melt under the gentle pressures of your jaw. The stellar cream sauce drenched every single facet of the risotto, from the al dente rice to the pleasantly briny clams. The sauce was charmingly creamy, packed full of marvelous flavor and had the mild, peppery heat of the gochujang looming in the background to keep the sauce from becoming overbearingly rich.

Besides the one errant tiger prawn, the rest of the seafood ensemble was sufficiently fresh, and there was just so much of it! Besides the pleasantly briny clams and mussels, a whole ocean of squid was swimming within the risotto, making the $24 price of admission well worth it.

While it's the least Korean dish on the menu, the seafood gochujang risotto is definitely one of the best.

Generously served with shrimp, black mussel, clam and squid. Though the base was supposed to be red pepper paste, it tasted more like any tomato based risotto:(

It was good but not fond of them-M

Joobar always give me comfort food. Really love the atmosphere as we chill at that place too. However yesterday food tastes okay only, but food presentation is always awesome. Will I be back again? Yes, I will! I will give them another chance! ๐Ÿ˜

Joo Bar is one of the bars that serve quality mains and sides. We did find the price rather steep while flipping through the very interesting menu. This risotto was flavorful and savory due to the gochujang (Korean red pepper paste) and broth. It was so creamy and buttery, but the punch of spiciness was weak and almost absent. Slight disappointment there.

We were happy to see the generous amount of seafood - big prawn, shrimps, mussels, clams, and squid. Though the small rubbery texture gave us a hint of possible frozen seafood used...

Fusion at its best! I love risotto and this dish perfectly fuses risotto with Korean flavours. Generous with seafood (mussels, clams, prawns) and parmesan shavings, definitely a must try!

Delish fusion of east meet west. Traditional red hot pepper sauce used as the base of risotto, not too piquant but with the right spicy note to the palette. The seafood used were fresh, plump and succulent. Good ratio of seafood to rice. The texture of the risotto was done to perfection too, not too wet, not too dry but just a lil tiny winny of creaminess. A flavorsome plate of risotto!
