Seoul Yummy

With the opening of Seoul Yummy, it was a matter of time before this cow who churches at Suntec eventually tries it.

And we did one Sunday lunch. Since the mother and sister were overseas, while the grandparents were at a different location, it was a father and son lunch.

Here's the side dishes that were served. I found green leafy veg missing but still enjoyed the other sides- kimchi, tofu, ikan bilis, potato salad, peanuts and radish. I particularly like the radish cubes for their clean, refreshing crunch with a slight lemon aroma.

For mains, we decided to pick two items from their lunch specials.

Hotpot Spicy Beef Soup ($11.99) had sweet slices of beef with tofu, egg and plenty of spring onions in a spicy soup. Pretty nice especially since this brings back fond memories of the Korean food at NTU (Should have eaten more when I was still studying there. So cheap lah!).

The other dish we tried was the Half Ginseng Chicken Soup ($13.99). The ginseng flavour here came from fresh Korean ginseng. This soup is great for those who fear the strong flavours of ginseng. While I would have preferred a stronger ginseng kick, this was a nice bowl of chicken soup! Flavourful and almost good for the soul. The chicken was also surprisingly tasty! I think they rubbed it well with salt. :) The brown rice also had a sweet fragrance of pulot hitam!

Seoul Yummy is a causal Korean place with good value and yummy food. The above lunch specials come with freeflow side dishes and barley tea. The decor is simple but stylish and confortable too.

Anonymous: Not having had Korean ginseng soup in Korea or being a Korean, I would not dare comment if it should 100% taste ginsengy or is supposed to. Just stating my preference that I would like a stronger ginseng flavour in a ginseng soup.

I don't know how many times I saw this on her emails when she wrote letters to family at Christmas.
But I thought, a doctor has this much vocabulary?
But what she had, and always did have, were DEDYS.
And apparently now, she has a billion BEDGOSTS.
