Do you know that there is a Korean restaurant located on level 3 of Regent Hotel? I didn't know that either until a couple of years back when the hotel Marcom shared with me. Since then, I have been wanting to check out Seoul Restaurant and finally got to do so recently. The restaurant serves authentic Korean dishes as well as premium BBQ on charcoal grill. I would recommend making a reservation as the place is quite crowded. I also notice a lot of Koreans dining at the restaurant, it just shows the food gets the recognition from the Korean community in Singapore too.
I decided to have the Seoul A La Carte Buffet ($69.90++ for adult / $42.90++ for kids). Besides the choice of beef, pork, chicken, sausage and seafood for BBQ, Diners also have the choices of a la carte, stew and noodle dishes. Not to forget the flew blow banchan which you can eat to your fill.
Grilled Meat 4.5/5
It is great to see that the restaurant still uses charcoal for the BBQ. It emits a consistent heat to cook the meat while infusing a smokiness to them.
For the beef section, diners get to have beef brisket, marinated beef boneless short rib, boneless short rib and marinated bone-in short rib. As for the pork section, customers can eat their fill from the selection of pork belly, pork jowl steak, preserved pork prime rib and marinated pork collar.
For seafood lovers, the choices are smaller, but diners still can pick from the selection of squid, mackerel fish and prawn.
Just having BBQ meat alone can be a bit heavy for the palate. Hence, it is nice to have something soupy to wash down the grilled meat. It is great that the a la carte buffet comes with a selection of stew dishes too. There are a total of six stew dishes to choose from, and I tried the Sundubu-jjigae (spicy soft beancurd stew with clams and egg yolk). This is legit authentic and delicious. In fact, I asked for a bowl of rice to go with it.
BBQ is quite heaty for the body, so I am glad that among the noodle dishes, there are a few cold noodle dishes. I had the Chilled Buckwheat Noodle Soup (cold), which is really cooling and refreshing.
For those that have a bottomless stomach or prefer more premium items, you can pay for additional charges to enjoy another 10 more a la carte items on top of the buffet. These items include more premium beef, eel, crab, japchae, galbi-jjim, ginseng chicken and kimchi hotpot.
