K.Cook Korean BBQ Buffet, Singapore @ Orchard Central

There’s just something visceral about sizzling meat on a hot grill – a communal meal to be enjoyed with friends, it’s no wonder that Korean BBQ is so popular. Along with K-pop, Kimchi and Bibimbap, BBQ is yet another export from Korea that has taken off in a big way around the world.

Located in Orchard Central, home to many good restaurants with long queues, K Cook Korean BBQ Buffet is no exception: with their attractively priced Eat-All-You-Can BBQ buffet, the queue to have a taste of this BBQ was a whopping one hour wait! Be forewarned: coming here with an empty stomach is not advisable.

We started off having a taste of all the side dishes; the Kimchi was one of the dishes that stood out amongst all, the freshness of the vegetable, perfect sweetness and spiciness. Be it the traditional cabbage-based Kimchi or the rarer onion Kimchi, it was a thumbs up from all of us. The other side dishes were pretty average.

Salad was the usual green veggies and cherry tomatoes; you can have sweet and sour sauce or pineapple sauce as seasoning. Fruit cocktail and limited choices of cut fruits with mashed potatoes to complete the meal.

BBQ meat and seafood are the stars here – the meats were tender, fresh and well seasoned. Prawn and squid were the only two seafood items available. What a heavenly smell when the meat hit the grill!

The interesting part of eating Korean BBQ is not just the taste of the meat, but also how you can wrap it with lettuce leaves, making for a much more fun eating experience.

Unfortunately we didn’t enjoy our entire BBQ experience; nothing to do with the food quality, but the weather played a prank on us. The table we were given had no extended shelter and guess what happened? As we started our BBQ, the sky turned orangey followed shortly by a heavy downpour, and the strong winds brought the rain directly to our table. We couldn’t change our seats, what with a fully packed room and limited space to move our table – in the end we had extra sky juice added into our food!

Our verdict, with the affordable pricing and the variety of BBQ meat available, K Cook BBQ Buffet is a natural magnet for youth and young adults looking for a good place to chill at night.
