One place that lives up to its name and hype - wobbly soft, smooth SoonTofu freshly made in-restaurant daily. Now I am determined to eat it more for #skingoals 😂.

Pick from seafood/beef/pork (our fav)/assorted (mixed of seafood) for the SoonTofu stew, which also gives you options on spiciness (levels 1-4). Let’s just say this was great enough that someone whose brows furrowed a little when first hearing on ‘tofu’ for dinner, left raving.
The banchan sides come with a yellow croaker fish (this is a first), among kimchi, marinated octopus and seaweed. End the wholesome hearty meal with a probiotic drink provided FOC.

Tried out Seoul Garden Hotpot tonight. No, it’s different from the buffet. This is Korean-style stews.

On the table: Army Stew, Seafood Pancake, Kimgaru (seaweed and garlic rice). Not disappointing if you come without expectations. Passable, including the banchan side dishes like the kimchi and pickles.

Korean fried chicken, that is really quite similar to chicken popcorn bites. The star instead, is the bubbling army stew in the background. Surprisingly, the squidball inside has none of that starchy blandness of typical factory-made squid/meatballs. It's flavourful and springy (made in-house?). Couple that with ramen noodles, melty rice cake slices, a gochujang-kimchi soup base that gets more intensely flavoured/saltier(:P) the more you stew it - the spoons just kept going.
💫
Definitely one of the better, if not, the best army stew soup I have had

계란찜 (Gyeran Jim) - Steamed egg in a hot claypot. This Korean-style steamed egg came bubbling towards us. When we scooped into its fluffiness, it was a smooth eggy flavour full with the sweetness from chicken broth. Never knew a simple steamed egg can be elevated this way by so much.

Team lunch at this Korean outfit. The place is crowded at lunchtime, so be sure to reserve. Pretty decent, authentic Korean.

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.
