Sky 22 @ Courtyard By Marriott Singapore Novena - Flavours Of Korea Buffet

Sky22Courtyard17

For a limited period from 15 March to 28 April 2019, Sky22 at Courtyard By Marriott Singapore Novena will be offering the Flavours of Korea buffet during the weekends. The Korean themed buffed is specially curated by their new South Korea Chef Hwang In Yong (Ian) and Executive Chef John Chye. Guests will be in for a feast of Korean classics as well as popular Korean street foods.

Cabbage Kimchi

Not to be missed is the housemade Cabbage Kimchi, they are so good. It has the right balance of sourish and spiciness on top of the crunchy texture. I was hoping that I can buy some of these to take home.

Spicy Seafood Tofu Soup 3/5

While my group of diners love the Spicy Seafood Tofu Soup, I have different view. The flavour is there but I felt that it lacked the heat to match its description. I really hope it can be much more spicier.

Sky22Courtyard4
Braised Short Ribs 4/5

The Braised Short Ribs on the other hand was spot on. They were well infused in the sweet sauce with fall of the bone meat. A very delightful dish to go with some steamed rice.

Kimchi Fried Rice 3/5

Unfortunately I could not taste the robustness of kimchi in the Kimchi Fried Rice. The chef definitely need to improve on the dish or it will be passed off as normal fried rice.

Sky22Courtyard15
Braised Kimchi Pork 3.5/5

Contradicting to the kimchi fried rice, the Braised Kimchi Pork Ribs came across more flavourful with the distinct kimchi flavour. As for the braised pork, it can be more tender.

Sky22Courtyard14
Sweet and Spicy Deep Fried Chicken Cube 4/5

I actually enjoyed snacking the Sweet and Spicy Deep Fried Chicken Cube. The chicken pieces are well coated with the sticky sweet and spicy sauce, fragrant with sesame seeds. Some of the diners felt that it is a bit dry but I actually like the slightly tough texture for that bite to chew on.

Sky22Courtyard19
Bibimbap 4.2/5

Diners at the Korean themed buffet can also have a little fun creating their own Bibimbap at the DIY  Bibim Bar. Have some fun putting the bibimbap together. The food will always taste better when you make it yourself.

Sky22Courtyard21
Vegetable Pancake 3.5/5

I find the Vegetable Pancake will be subjective to individual liking. If you are not into greens than you will not like it. As for me I like the fact that there was not a lot of batter on the pancake, allowing me to appreciate the greens.

Sky22Courtyard30
Korean Sweet Pancake 4/5

Complete the feast on a sweet note with Korean desserts such as Rice Cakes, Chestnut Balls and Sweet Pancakes. For the buffet spread, on top of the Korean delights, there are also a myriad of seafood from the steam & grill seafood bar to complement the spread.

Ramen Champion & Hokkaido Paradise @ Changi Airport Terminal 3 - You Need Stamina To Finish The Bowl Of Ramen

IMG_4764

After a 2 months renovation, Ramen Champion reopened with a new concept Hokkaido Paradise offering Hokkaido specialty ramen, sashimi, sushi, curry rice and sweet delights, on top of the ramen from different prefectures of Japan.

Stamina Miso Ramen 4/5

IMG_4769

I had the Stamina Miso Ramen ($16.80) which comes with heap of cabbage, bean sprouts, corns, egg, slice pork and char siew. As for the miso soup, it has a garlicky base which I appreciate to balance the richness of the miso. The sweetness of the cabbage also helps to cut that greasiness. By the way, the portion is really huge, order this only if you really have the stamina to finish it.

Sapporo Miso 3.5/5

For a more decent portion is the Sapporo Miso ($14.80). You are not into garlic, then this ramen will be more acceptable and palatable. I also prefer the tender char siew over the one from the Stamina Miso Ramen.

Crouching Tiger Roll 2.5/5

To complete our meal, we tried the Crouching Tiger Roll ($16.80). Unfortunately the taste is not as impressive as the name. The tiger was quite lame. The downfall was the mushy rice that came apart with ease.
