Media Food Tasting at Korean Charcoal BBQ SEORAE on 12 April 2017

Craving for Korean food over the long weekend?  Check out Popular Korean Charcoal BBQ SEORAE as it has sizzled up its mouth-watering selection with exciting new additions, sets for sharing and a merry array of soju cocktails and makkoli mixes that guarantees good times all round. 

One plus point to order the grilled meat is that SEORAE uses a special ‘circle grilling’ technique where diners can scoop up silky folds of egg and fiery grilled kimchi for a burst of flavours to go with their meal.  For added indulgence, coat your skewers with a layer of melted cheese that surrounds the grill, offering a buttery creaminess that’s hard to resist.  I am a cheese lover so it is definitely a YEAH for me!

A must firm order has gotta be its signature Korean Galmaegisal (premium pork skirt meat).  Once said to be reserved only for lofty Korean royalty in olden days, the exclusive sirloin- extension—forming only 250 grams between the ribs and belly of a full-grown pig—is now a must-have on every local Korean buff’s platter. Marinated in a delicious blend of Korean spices and grilled to perfection, the galmaegisal takes on the characteristics of wagyu beef; rich with flavours, and promises a tender and juicy bite. 

I also tried a few other grilled dishes like Woosamgyeob which is US beef shortplate, marinated with Seorae's special juicy sauce.  I am not a great fan of beef but this dish doesn't have that strong 'beef' smell and I actually like the flavour of the meat.

The Spicy Samgyeobsal is yet another one of my favourite grilled meat.  I love pork belly because of the crisp bbq fats that go well with the meat... an awesome combination of soft vs chewy texture.

If you are into stews, SEORAE has a wide variety to choose from.

Warm up your bellies with the comforting Budae Jjigae – a succulent selection of sausages, spam, bacon, fish cake, tteokboki, beans, mixed with fresh vegetables and simmered in a special Gochujang spicy stew. 

I also tried Sundubu Jjigae which is spicy soft tofu stew mixed with minced pork and fresh vegetables, clams and eggs.  This will be a great choice for cold days to warm up the body.

This was my first time eating cheese dumpling when Cheese Mandu Tteokbokki was served.  It was an interesting combination of Korean rice cake cooked in Seorae's hot sauce, served on hot pan with fried fish cake, egg, corn-cheese dumpling, ramyeon and pineapple

New on the menu is the fickle-friendly Kkochi Platter – charcoal grilled skewers oozing in an array of delicious and addictive fillings such as melted cheese, kimchi and spicy enoki wrapped in samgyeobsal (premium pork belly) or woosamgyeob (US prime beef shoortplate). 

I strongly recommend everyone to try this out.

Make your meal a merry affair and knock back a toothsome tipple or two. New concoctions include the Rose Petaline Soju and Lime Mojito Soju, both guaranteed to put a happy blush in your cheeks. Flashy meets fleshy with the Pineapple Cocktail, featuring a whole pineapple that’s spiked with soju and scooped straight from the husk.
