Seoul Food!

Yup. That is in fact spelled right. I’m not talking about traditional black American food.  I’m talking about a restaurant chain in Singapore named Seoul Garden!

On Sunday afternoon we went out for a movie, and then afterwards we decided to have dinner at Seoul Food.  It was a group decision.  My wife and I had often seen the place but had decided not to eat there.  We just didn’t care much for the way it looked, and this picture of the goat in the window deterred me:

Some of you may remember me posting this photo before.  Well, I guess I gave in.  I ate the poor goat.

So anyhow, the place was pretty surprising as far as quality of food goes.  When you first walk in your put at a table that has a griddle and bowl of broth in the middle.

It’s up to you to decide your fate:

Some of the items are raw, like the meats in the second photo, and some are precooked and just need to be heated up, like the items just past the person barely visible in the first photo.  There’s also an array of veggies that you can either turn into a plain salad (no dressing) or dump into the pot or onto the hot plate.

It’s all really good, and it’s an all-you-can-eat buffet, so you can sit down, take your time, relax, and chat with your family and friends (and eat more because you’re eating slowly and get more for your money).

The photo above is mainly about that small yellow bowl and what’s in it.  One of the people with us prepared it from the dessert buffet area.  I’m not sure what all of the ingredients are, and either I really misheard what she called it or I just can’t find it on the internet.  She seemed to enjoy it, but I passed on that for ice cream and little pieces of cakes.

The place is a pretty good value for your money and it’s located (the one we went to anyway) on the same floor as the movie theater in Tampines Mall, right in front of you when you come off the escalator.

Last, but not least… a random shot of the table:

If you make it over there, enjoy!  Oh, and from what I saw in the Google search suggestions, there are Seoul Gardens located all over the US as well, including New York City.

  1. It definitely was a nice treat! We ate for about 3 hours, little bit at a time. Makes me want to go to Sakura again. I don't think I've done a post on that one… or gotten any good photos from inside.Speaking of food… can't wait to see what's on offer in Thailand!


  2. Yes, chendol. That's it exactly. The person eating it had told me the name but I misheard her and thought she said “tendol”, which I guess is why I couldn't find it on the internet.


  3. Might that dessert be called chendol, a local dessert with some jelly, red beans and coconut milk? It's quite yummy if well-made.Coco de cat


  4. The buffet is pretty nice and we actually wound up eating slowly for about 3 hours. I was kinda shocked when I looked down at my watch. We talked a lot too. It was a nice, relaxing meal.Wow. Didn't realize it was that much. The couple we went with treated us. 25 bucks seems like a lot for Seoul Garden. Sakura is about the same price (26.99 I think) and it's better. That's where we're planning on taking them next month.


  5. Seoul Garden is nice – I like that there is a lot of variety of food there and being a buffet if you can eat a lot, its a good deal.Personally I think that its a tad bit expensive though. I remember that it was about 50 dollars for two people. Kind of iffy when they advertised that the price was $16.99. If you wanna charge $25, just say $25, don't bait us with fake advertising.But this was about 3 years ago though, prices would have probably gone up for now.
