Posting a photo of you and your cute Korean boyfriend on social media, that’s one surefire way of getting most of your friends’ attention. Better still if his name is Yoo Si Jin. Case in point:
In case you’re wondering what a nutcase/diehard fan I must be, well, my good friend Bumblebee Mum was the one who suggested our lunch venue at Seorae today (and introduced Descendants of the Sun to me)! So really, I’m not as insane as it looks 🙂
I’m no food guru, but I can attest that it’s probably the best tasting Korean BBQ I’ve had in a long while – then again, I’ve eaten Korean BBQ less than 10 times excluding Seoul Garden during secondary school days – the meats were well marinated and juicy that their flavours burst through even after eating with a wrapped lettuce over. The garlic chicken especially, was very tender and even when I left it tad too long on the hot plate because I got too carried away chatting, resulting in charring the meat, it didn’t taste dry at all!
However, my 2 favorites “dishes” from Seorae were actually part of the “free-flow” side dishes: the very fluffy egg (the photo with the golden kettle) which was sooooo good I kept eating portions after portions, and the melted cheese to wrap our barbecued meats with, oh my! That combo of flavours was just life-changing.
And of course we had to end our very satisfying meal with Bingsu.
Having tried my first Bingsu at Bingki 2 weeks ago and becoming an immediate fan of the Korean dessert, plus there was a 50% promo off PatBingsoo at Seorae during lunch hour; the 3 of us had to get ourselves one each!
While the shaved ice wasn’t as fine as the one I had at Bingki, the flavours of the different combo went very well together!
Mabel’s Patbingsoo was a combo of popcorn, cornflakes, azuki beans, vanilla ice cream and condense milk, while Bumblebee Mum’s was a refreshing combo of rock melon, vanilla ice cream, azuki beans. I chose the chocolate combo of wafers, cookies, chocolate sticks, vanilla ice cream and wafer toppings only because I spied the table next to us having the chocolate one earlier and it looked really delicious.
Seorae is at Plaza Singapura, level 2 (#02-01), right next to the escalator and Itacho Sushi at the old wing. And if you’re wondering if it’s worth the trip there, hand over heart, it is!
