So-So Korean BBQ @ Seorae on 28May2017

1 for 1 beef belly S$22.90 

 went with family 4pax to seorae for korean bbq dinner on 28.5.2017.

the last time i came with my 2 buddies before our london/wales trip on 30.3.2017 & we quite enjoyed it. 


this time though somehow the arrangements were different, the vibes were different….

there was no queue at 12pm lunch last time. this time we were there 7.30pm there was a short queue like 10mins.

more importantly last time we asked the server questions & he helped us order the food we wanted. this time it was a paper like dimsum you tick off.

for me that makes a huge different, don’t like to guess what i am ordering & not being able to make small changes…eg last time we did not take 3 in 1, but server help us to organise the same dish as 2 in 1.

banchan – replenishable side dishes 

banchan was still good. we had 3 rounds.

last time with my friends who could just go on, we ordered 5 rounds.

banchan – replenishable side dishes 

daughter likes seafood pancake.

this was pretty good, better than what we had at abuirya a week later.

US beef S$29 

we ordered a US beef S$29.

with all the korean names it was hard to order what you are ordering with more personalised service advice from the server.

King Galmaegisal 3-in-1 S$29

& we ticked the 3 in 1, too bothersome to ask the server with this ticking system..

korean charcoal bbq

the hearth is same as at aburiya, quite effective.

kimchi jjigae

kimchi jjigae was not 1/2 as good as aburiya & i think cost like S$16 instead of S$13.

kimchi jjigae 

maybe a bigger serving, but cannot compensate for less yummy dish.

to be fair this was ok dish, just that aburiya’s was far better!


the naengmyeon was also no comparison to aburiya’s bibimen!


again it was ok dish. just NOT as good by comparison.

and likewise the meats were no comparison with aburiya, quite a different league altogether la.

see our recent excellent yakiniku dinner at aburiya on 3.6.2017.

after 2 tries, don’t think i am coming back here again la…
