Dae Jang Keum, Yess Leisure
There's definitely no shortage of Korean restaurants in the CBD, although this one was in a bit of a peculiar place (25 Shenton Way #02-01, 6224-5525). I only noticed it when a cab driver happened to be taking me onto the freeway a couple weeks ago, just before reaching the on-ramp. It is surrounded by a bunch of karaoke lounges or something at Yess Leisure (not to be confused with Yess Centre in the West), which made it even weirder. And even when you get to this restaurant, you have to head upstairs to the second floor to find the dining room.
Anyway, I went for some kind of special unmarinated and boneless kalbi. It certainly was tender and tasty (and they provided my requisite dipping oil), but at a whopping S$38 (US$25.30), I would expect at least that, especially since the portions were so disappointingly small. At least there was tons of kimchee. Even if I won't be coming back frequently, this was much better than I thought it would be, as many of the items they used were admirably fresh and of high quality.
Digested at 9:33 PM
