Seoul Garden Barbeque Steamboat

This evening we had dinner at the Seoul Garden Barbeque Steamboat restaurant in Bugis Junction. I love their newly renovated restaurant. Actually I don't even know if it's newly renovated as the last time hubs and I visited the place was approximately 10 years ago. I recently went with mum and princess to the Ngee Ann City branch but that one has the hotpot on the table top whereas the one at Bugis has a sunken-in middle so the pot sits in it. It's great as you do not get lots of oil splashes on the table but having to reach in and cook the stuff does stretch your shoulder muscles a little and it gets tiring. But we had loads of fun and ate lots, even princess. She was great with her newly-acquired chopstick skills. Hurray, am so proud that she can use normal chopsticks now. She calls them 'grown-up' chopsticks. In the past month she's had loads of practice with normal chopsticks and has been very successful with her sushi, soba etc. So happy that I have another disciple under my belt. The other being hubby. Well, actually I think she learnt it more from the training chopsticks that she had before. She still has them and still uses them once in a while, but her confidence is surely increasing.

wah, my stomach growling big time..i think the SG branches we have here are like that of Ngee Ann City..

"training chopsticks", what's that? you mean the one by the Combi brand?

shazz - Yes, you'd be so proud of her... can see it soon in a months' time. :) Ok, ok, we go eat when you back, don't say you don't eat meat or diet ah! It's buffet so you make sure you eat!

inspiredmumof2 - Ah, you can eat it anytime you want. I still like them and more reasonable compared to the East Coast Parkway one. Plus one kid eats free with 2 adults on Sundays. Hehe, yup, but at home, she still uses your chopsticks. ;)

hkchoo - Oh, maybe they haven't upgraded your end. Hopefully soon. No, the Edison chopsticks are better. I don't like the Combi one. I bought a pair. She didn't know how to use them.

wow. Princess is so quick! Even I have some problems with my chopsticks...

The thing I like about Seoul garden-it encourages so much interaction! So, can we still make our own Ice kachang? ;p

singairishgirl said...

daphne - Ya, it's practise. Yes, yes, I find the food tastes the same even after so many years of not visiting. Their marinade recipe hasn't changed. Ya, ya, still got ice kachang hehe.
