Sponsored Review : Daessiksin Korean BBQ Buffet

Happy December and nice weather is always a good time to not just stay at home, it is also time to gather some friends and have some Korean BBQ!


Thanks to Daessiksin, I managed to catch up with my old friends like HP and Ck, not so old friend Jon and new friend, Yuki! We were at the West Mall outlet to avoid the crowd but the Korean BBQ Buffet is also available at Bugis Plus, Orchard Gateway, Serangoon NEX, Waterway Point, Causeway Point, AMK Hub, and will be available at United Square and Cathay Cineleisure before Christmas 2016.


Even though we were there to avoid the human traffic, the buffet restaurant was still packed and doing well for a late Monday evening.


Daessikkin offers 10-12 different types of signature marinated meats, and Korean Delicacies, of course all made from fresh ingredients. It might not sound to have a wide spread but good even to satisfied a KBBQ Craving day.

Buffet Pricing:
Weekday *120,mins lunch, 120mins dinner Limit Per Diner.
 Friday dinner 90mins*

Lunch $14.90++ (Adult) & $10.90++ (Child and Senior Citizen)Dinner $24.90++ (Adult) & $20.90++ (Child and Senior Citizen)


Weekend, PH and eve of PH 90mins Limit Per Diner
All day $24.90++ (Adult) $20.90++ (Children and Senior Citizen)Additional Cheese Dip $3++







Jon and I took a little for each side, making sure that we would not miss out to try any of the side dishes and also have a nice flatlay picture hehe but seriously just look at the spread! Jon's favourite is the glass noodles. ( I saw him take two servings!)

And that cheese! (First one is complimentary, top up serving $3++ each)


What I really loveeeeee about the place was the grill pan that the restaurant uses, together with the well formulated marination recipes, the grilled food were done quickly, able to retain the meat's moisture, not too oily nor dry. Even when you accidentally over cook and burn the meat, just wet a tissue and it will be removed easily from the pan and affect the new food you put on top of the grill!

pro tip : Leave your cooked meat at the sides of the grill pan to slow down its cooking.

And of course eating creatively!
Come on, let's move on from the put-your-meat-inside-a-lettuce-and-add-some-kimchi-wrap-and-eat, to just add more stuff! Like what we did below, a piece of meat,lettuce, corn, cherry tomato.

We did do much fun food experiment the other day at the restuarant. We had like pork belly paired with the in house Kimchi (talk about it later cause it was so good), or with the enokitake mushroom. Yumz in the tumz. I am not quite a fan over Kimchi but HP was sharing about how good the kimchi was, I had to try myself to see if he was masking ads (kiddingbro). The Kimchi was marinated with the head chef's recipe and it was moderate spicy, not overpowering, simply put - a very comfortable taste.


Add some carbs in, we try to add cooked Japanese rice to the grill and eat some meat and kimchi and CHEESEEEEEEEE!!!!!



Although it was a sponsored review, I would say that Daessikkin Korean BBQ way exceeded my expectations. To be honest, I went with a mindset that I would possibly be having normal-tasting dishes, and nothing fantastic. I was terribly wrong, I loved it so much I kinda wanna buy the grill pan home and the chicken bulgogi was soooooo good. The chicken meat itself have very little fats, with makes the cooking and eating experience a lot healthier and better. I don't take beef but I looked at the portion and it was huge. I can continue to rave about it but what is better to try it out yourself?
