Kkongdon Korean BBQ - CRAZY CHEAP PRICES!

ANNYEONG HASAEYO~

Recently I have really crazy cravings for Korean BBQ, maybe its the cause of watching too much ROOMMATE(I'm only at Ep 16 now) and all of them are so cute and real with all the real emotions! They have an ep where they had a BBQ outdoor, oh that looks SUPER good, and the episode where they went to Japan to eat the Kobe beef, oh my god.. Haha! All the meat!!

My prayers were heard when I got an invite to Kkongdon Barbeque by JP pepperdine group at Toa Payoh Safra! BULGOGI I'm Coming!!!

Kkongdon Barbecue spices up its barbecue buffet menu with All-You-Can-Eat and Add On options. Offering a new selection of barbecue favorites that are perfect for a treat with friends and families include chicken, pork, beef and the newly introduced premium 30 Days Aged New Zealand Sirloin cut in three marinades, diners are surely spoilt for choice.

Kkongdon’s well-marinated meats follow the authentic Korean formula with a local flair for a minimum of 8 hours before serving, promise a gastronomic pleasure as diners enjoy the experience of barbecuing to their preferred level of meat doneness. Prices start at $19.80++ for adults and $12++ for child, diners who root for lighter and healthier fare should look no further to order the lightly marinated selection and try on the wholesome Ginseng Chicken Soup or the flavorsome beef ribs soup from the add on menu. Looking for something to zest up the gathering, the spicy marinated meats and iconic Bulgogi marinated chicken are must try!

Diners can also opt to order Kimchi Pancake or Kkondgkon’s signature dish, Steamed Egg to share. The best thing to know and to relish will be the free flow of side dishes which include Kimchi, Gyoza, Deokbokki (Korean Rice Cakes), Sliced fruits, just to name a few.

Korean BBQ are best with Friends or Family! The more the merrier!

Notice the slanted pan layout? This is kkongdon BBQ's effort to keep the grease out of your pan so that it would not be that sinful to indulge in afew more pieces, So thoughtful la!! And also, they lay grease paper atop the grill so that there will be less charring and it prevents the meat from sticking to the pan. WOW man, just WOW at all the thoughts for the maximum enjoyment of the customers!

Kkongdon Barbeque has the competitive price of $19.80++ for ADULTS on WEEKDAYS MON-THURS ALL DAY! SUPER WORTH IT LA! Looking at what you get, It is super worth your money!! Did you see the 30 Days Aged Chilled NZ Sirloin Cut???? Woooohooo!
Ala-Carte Order: Pork Belly

Other than meat items, do try out their special items too, like this Kimchi Mandu (kimchi Dumpling). You put it on the pan and grill/pan fry it till slightly charred and devour it. A very unique experience! Kkongdon also provides seaweed for customers to try their hands at making their own Kimbap(Gimbap)! It's really a fun filled dinner experience for me!

A special price is extended to an array of appetizers, soups, stews and desserts for buffet diners.

Appetizers – Choose from Kkongdon’s Kimchi Pancake (Kimchi Buchimgae) or the Steamed Egg (Gaeranjjim). The firm-textured pancake presents itself with kimchi chunks, and a mild spicy sour flavour to whet an appetite for a feast whereas the Steamed Egg has a light texture exudes a fragrant aroma.

Soups & Stew – Choose between the Ginseng Chicken Soup (Samgetang), or Beef Rib Soup (Galbitang). Made from ingredients imported from Korea, these soups promise authentic flavours and provides a nourishing fix. The Pork Belly Kimchi Stew (Kimchijjim Jeongol) is presented in Korean earthenware with pork belly slices, kimchi, tofu, enoki mushrooms and a generous amount of soup, so good you just want to go for another one! I love all their soup & stew!!

The Oh So Famous Galbitang (Beef Short Rib Soup) that I've heard about So many times on Roomate and Korean Drama. I finally got to try it and OH MY GOD! The Beef seem to have held in place, but the moment it touched my tongue, it started to fall apart O-O SOOOOOOOOO Tender omg. I was afraid of the beefy smell/taste in the soup but don't have! Kkongdon BBQ chef are very clever, they used a variety of mushrooms to cover up the smell and the soup was so delightful that we all wanted a 2nd serving! SUPER Recommended!!

Thank you Kkongdon Korean BBQ for this invite.

On another note, how did you spend your christmas? How are you going to spend your NYE?
I've been so lazy this festive season and I've not been blogging. #guilty
But I'm ready to welcome 2015 and I hope it will be a much better year than 2014!!

A Joyous Christmas with Crowne Plaza Singapore

There is no better way to celebrate Christmas than to have your loved ones all gathered under one roof for a decadent feast. Offering traditional selections, unique flavours that will tantalise your taste buds and luxurious choices, the culinary team at Crowne Plaza Changi Airport put together a menu that will give you the best Christmas party like no other.

The salads are so vibrant that I can't wait to savour them. The savoury one would be the Chopped salad with smoked turkey ham and cheddar, super good to start your festive buffet palate, I could not stop eating it. On the other hand, the Festive Apple and Pomegranate Salad with Crushed Pecan Nuts was a little heavy on the dressing, which made the supposed refreshing salad a little pale in comparison to the former. (Both Available on Azur's Festive Buffet)

Also on the Azur's Festive Buffet is the Pan-Seared Scallop with Warm Butternut Squash and Arugula Salad. 4 words - Freshness in my mouth. The Scallops came with their roe and no additional thick sauces were needed for the natural sweetness to spread on our tongue, Yums! I'm sure this item will be a HOT favourite on the buffet line, keep your eyes on them!

Nope, this is not Halloween's Menu, This Sweet Potato with Marshmallow Gratin will be a hit with those sweet tooth out there and the kids! Natural and Constructed Sweetness comes together in this dish but I recommend to take small bites over time instead of stuffing them in all at once.

Though Crowne Plaza Changi Airport cordially invites you to a feast of great food and merrymaking with the ones you love, they have a selection of irresistible festive takeaways for you to celebrate a cozy Christmas with your family in the comfort of your own house with their takeaway items.

For an east-meets-west option, the Festive Baked Turkey with Angelica Root ($165+, approx. 5 kg) is marinated with an Angelica Root powder rub and stuffed with Sweet Corn, preserved Mei Cai and Chinese blood sausage. The tender meat from the turkey almost made me took a second look at it. Complemented with a Cranberry & Orange Marmalade, the sweet sauce did not over power the aroma of the stuffings which made this turkey a real special one!

Meat Lovers, cheers to the Provencal Crusted Rib Eye of Beef ($255+, approx. 3 – 4 kg) roasted to a perfect medium doneness, Available on the Azur Festive Buffet and also for takeaways, the Beef is seasoned with Provencal Herbs so well that no other sauce was required. If you would like something different, they also have the Chermoula Spices marinated Boneless Leg of Lamb ($185+, approx. 2 – 3 kg)  OR an elegant Salmon Wellington ($90+, approx. 5kg).

No dinner will be complete without a sweet treat and Azur is happy to welcome Pastry Chef Wong Khek Cheong to the team and his creations are here to WOW. Offering a refreshing twist to the famous French Yule log cake, the Yuzu Infused Log Cake ($62+) is layered with Meringue Sponge, Caramel Crunch and Yuzu infused Valrhona Dulcey Chocolate. The Valrhona Dulcey Chocolate gives a creamy and toasty flavour while the yuzu lingers on the palate. Definitely a unique take on the usual log cakes! The Eggnog Pannacotta hides a deliciously sinful golden brown caramel sauce beneath, giving you the feeling of bliss when paired with the smooth pannacotta. I want More!

Morganfields Christmas 2014

I always love Christmas Platters and I am always impressed with Morganfield's Sharing Platters, What more their Christmas Platter! YAY! I was delighted to be invited to their new Suntec City Outlet for a Christmas Tasting session along with a few other blogger friends!

Let's start with some delightful drinks. The White Christmas Sangria - $16.90++ is a mixture of white wine, Peach puree, diced apples & oranges, a little alcohol won't do any harm right? And the Red Christmas Cooler - $8.90++ Lemon, Watermelon, Cranberry with Frozen Blackberries is a non-alcoholic version.

Hmm, Starting off with a Bang was the Highly Anticipated Beer Candied Bacon!!! Who can resist Bacon ??? I love Bacon! It taste just like ang moh bak kwa!! Everyone should try!!
Beer Candied Bacon - $8.90++
Basketful of Pork - Beer Candied Bacon again, with Popcorn Pork and Pork Bratwurst accompanied with Ranch sauce! Such a delicious basket to start the night of feasting rolling~
Basketful of Pork - $15.90++
HUGEEEEEEEEEEEE LEG of  Ham! This huge baby here is about 4-5KG. The Bourbon Marmalade Glazed Leg of Ham has the best glazed skin that night, Hands(leg) Down! Sweet yet savory, the aromatic feels in my mouth, the fats that melts on palete.. I Highly recommend it to everyone!!
Bourbon Marmalade Glazed Leg of Ham - $168.90++ (Available for Delivery)
Christmas Hazelnut Roast Chicken is the perfect size for a family of 4 to get a little festive celebration! The beautifully browned whole spring chicken (800-900g) contains traditional chestnut stuffing. Laid with breadcrumbs for that extra crunch for a better contrast of textures with the tender juicy meat in your mouth!
Christmas Hazelnut Roast Chicken - $28.90++ (Available for Delivery)
This year, Morganfield's Singapore is introducing 2 special Christmas edition Sticky Bones sauces to bring Christmas cheers - They are the American Rouge Hazelnut Nectar and the Cranberry Sticky Bones. Accompanied with the many delicious sides such as Roasted Carrots & Potatoes, Assorted Sausages, Cornbread, Caramelized Onions, French Beans and 2 Huge Turkey Legs!

This huge platter has enough meat to feed my family for days, OR a group of 5- 6 friends or even more if you have small eaters in your group! Everything is so delicious on this platter. The christmas sticky bones are fork tender, making it really easy to eat but of course it would have more flavour if you ate with your hands, I'm not lying, Try it! The huge turkey leg is a real surprise because it was still so tender and juicy despite it's size, we were all skeptical at first. There is still ham, assorted sausages, Cornbread, roasted vegetables.. Looking at this makes me salivate again.. ♥
Morganfield's Christmas Platter - $149.90++

And it's never a complete meal without desserts in my opinion. The Cranberry 'n' Peach Crumble is a Hot & Cold combination, bringing you the best of both worlds! The fresh fruits somehow cleanses all the grease from the platter and the ice cream is just... Heavenly when paired with the warm crumble.
Cranberry 'n' Peach Crumble - $13.90 (Top-Up $8.90 for this with every Christmas platter purchase!!)
Did you spot the 2 items that are available for delivery? They are the Bourbon Marmalade Leg of Ham and the Christmas Hazelnut Roast Chicken.
