E!ght Korean BBQ

Simply Her (Singapore) - - Smartshopper Great Finds - – Lim Tsiao Hui, con­sumer & life­style ed­i­tor

#02-79 The Cen­tral, tel: 6222-2159. Open 11.30am-10.30pm daily. The high­light at this mod­ern Korean restau­rant is the 8 Colours Set ($98, serves four), a plat­ter of thick Berk­shire pork belly strips mar­i­nated in eight ways – orig­i­nal, wine, gin­seng, curry, gar­lic, herb, miso and red pep­per paste, grilled a la minute on the grid­dle that’s on ev­ery ta­ble. The bolder flavours (herb, gar­lic, curry, and red pep­per paste) were our favourites, and we liked that we could choose just th­ese flavours to make up the set. The best thing is, the restau­rant staff will do the cook­ing for you.

The set comes with a Seafood Bean Paste Stew and Scorched Rice Soup, so the sub­stan­tial feast can ac­tu­ally feed up to six din­ers. What kept us go­ing was the com­pli­men­tary ban­chan (ap­pe­tis­ers) of warm kim­chi and as­sorted pick­les, es­pe­cially the palate-re­fresh­ing pick­led lo­tus roots and small onions that made the hearty meal lighter.
