went to my RI bro QTC’s office at central today on 15.10.2018. ^^
after that we went for 2pax lunch at 8korean @ central next to his office. had a great chat & lunch togetther.
I bought $100 chope viuchers for $59..we ordered the server’s recommendations, a flower pork set $68 which included a stew. i chose beef kimchi stew & added a grilled squid $22=enuf to feed 3-4pax actually. lol! 🙂
lunch cost $108 which i top up $8 = total $67 for lots of food for 2pax.
the usual banchan 반찬 was quite limited. there was pickled gourd or zucchini.
something that felt like pasta.
the server did the grilling of the pork set and sotong while we enjoyed lunch and conversation. 🙂
the grilled squid which other bloggers recommended included lots of kimchi and large bean sprouts.
squid was nicely done. good bbq flavour and tasty with the dips.
the S$68 flower pork set consisited of flower prok belly, pork neck steak and pork jowl.
on 8korean website, they stated that they used only hungarian mangalitza pig. and looking at the description these should be more alike iberico or kurobuta, more marbled with fat of lower melting point…i must say i didn’t feel that much different like the pork was more flavoured or marbled when eating. of the 3 meats, the belly seemed tougher.
overall it was a satisfying lunch.
the pork should be like 400g, and the beef stew was a huge serving,
i don’t think i would pay S$68 for this pork set plus beef stew but for 40% discounts at S$40, it is doable and i would come here and have this again.
sadly there was zero customer except us for the entire lunch period on a monday…not sure how singapore dining establishments survive?
we had a great tete a tete having the entire place to ourselves. lol! 🙂
