Was finding a Korean bbq place for a family treat and found this hyper bbq hideout on the web that was popular among singaporean but also recommended by various food blogs ( media interview) and also sold out reservations in most of the weekends.

The review and its facebook page share of its famous variety of flavoured pork ;beef and chicken with pork having the largest selection of flavours ranging from lychee to curry taste.

Despite the word “fusion” is used in this bbq place which also serve steamboat at its ground floor situated in 2 storey shophouse where bbq is on 2nd floor. The food in my opinion has failed to meet a minimal satisfaction in term even the prices are the same as those major Korean bbq food franchises. The store has a 4 yrs history.

In summary here are the honest info in my opinion for foodies as references :

Pros:
1. There is no time limit for the bbq meaning you can eat from lunch to dinner but if you intend to do so then you have to be prepared to pay for dinner price then. We book at 3 pm but finished at 5pm.

2. The staffs are attentive enough to address to our needs and even help us to change table and provide us fresh utensils when they want us to move to give up table for larger crowd.

3. Waffles are something new which the staff will make as first order for you which took 10 minutes.

4. So far meat marinating has no msg especially gong pao chicken which proofs that. So is the pork collar meat which was the only better choice of variety for the meat.

5. They used Teflon sheet on hot plate which I think is good and innovative as it doesn’t burn the food that easily and is easy to replace rather than constant changing of the hot plate and is speedy.

Cons:
1. Most marinating of meat are either bland or overpowering like lychee pork belly which simply taste like sugar syrup and wonder why most food blog stated it has strong lychee taste. Turn out another table guest actually asked for waiter for the same enquiry and it was answered as lychee is sweet that’s all - u to decide.

2. Houseflies - despite within an aircon room ; our food was constantly visited by houseflies and since the food station is also open concept thus it becomes a concern.

3. Lack of varieties as it deem as fusion ; is more like given same common cut but marinated in different sauces and lack what Korean bbq should have in term of meat cut like beef short ribs.

4.Seafood disappointment on the bamboo clams are huge discount despite I think good intention for owner to supply high end seafood but it failed badly simply the bamboo clams are filled with sand when chew on ; we have to discard whole lot.

5. The air vent to suck in all oily fumes produced by bbq are almost powerless and despite we asked if it can turned up ; we will instead told is due to aircon facing us; after moving to next table ; the fumes suction didn’t seems to improve and we ended overwhelmed from head to our bags with bbq Smokey and oily smell. Additionally no storage of bags to avoid that smell neither.

6. The topping up may seem slow which was assume that is cross over from lunch to dinner as a few items we have requested was not ready except when we are done and dinner time started.

7. Parking is inconvenient since is situated along Dunlop Street but is near to Jalan Besar mrt if you want to come visit.”

Overall ; suitable for those who wants cheap and endless fill of meats without breaking your bank and no time limit and hope the owner can improve on those above mentioned points after seeing my post which I believe will make this bbq place a worthy place again for Long lasting returning customers-every customers walked out seems unsatisfactory and were commenting or complaining in someway since we sat near the cashiers. Prices and time are available at their fb page.
