Initially, I was keen to try the porridge, but I just couldn’t decide which one to order. Seafood? Oyster n Mushrooms? Salmon? Kimchi? At the same time, knowing that I am very fussy when it comes to texture of rice and porridge, I decided to order Bibimbap…hehehe..to be on the safe side. True enough, the texture of the porridge is not what I fancy. While I prefer the Chinese version which is smoother (Meen) and watery, the Korean version was a bit dry and you can still see some grains in the porridge. I tried Boo’s and Lemongrass’s porridge, although it taste good, but I know definitely I won’t be able to eat one bowl by myself.

The first time I had Bibimbap was in Lotte World, Korea and somehow, I could not find any of it served here as good. But I simply love the bibimbap in Bonjuk, the spicy sauce with octopus was really flavourful and appetising. Served with seaweed soup and Kim Chi (Korean preserved chinese cabbage), the meal was rather satisfying.
The owner of the outlet, Andrew Kim was rather amused when he saw us snapping photos of the food upon being served. We told him that the photos are to be posted on our blogs, hence free advertisement for him. I guess he was really happy about it and treated us to Korean Seafood Pancake. Haha…goodie..that means more photos! The pancakes I had elsewhere were more flourish but the pancake here was soft and full of clams, mussels, shrimp and squids. Nice!
After the yummy dinner, we decided to have some dessert (notice some trend here?) and so we walked over to Alberto’s to try their highly recommended Kinder Bueno’s flavoured Gelato. But to our disappointment, the Gelato greeted us with semi-melted face at a discounted price….sigh. So we walked off to Hayn’s Pizzeria for their Lecka-Lecka Gelatos. Ended up with coffees, tiramisu, brownies and crème brulee since the gelatos were way too sweet for us. And of course, another round of photo snapping.
