Kkongdon means ‘best price value’ in Korean language. Originated from Sinchon, Korean, Kkongdon BBQ opened its first outlet in Singapore in 2012 at Marina Square (Marina Link) and has since then expanded to a total of 4 outlets, including this located at Toa Payoh Safra.
Love the modern interiors and spacious seating areas with K-pop enhancements! Also appreciate this smoke suction device (what is this call?) which prevented us from smelling like BBQ pork after the meal. :D
We were here to try out Kkongdon's newly introduced All-You-Can-Eat BBQ. The price is really competitive with the good quality of meat served!
What's Korean BBQ without the awesome free flow of kimchi and side dishes? :D
One plate is never enough for me. Heh.
7 different types of marinated meat available at FREE FLOW. Right, the carnivores types of heaven!
If you're a fan of spicy food, do give the spicy marinated meat a try! Also, the 30 days aged NZ Sirloin is one that you can't miss out! For the price, this is definitely a steal!
What's better than having some hot BBQ Korean meat while sipping some warm Korean Barley tea on a rainy night?
Besides the BBQ buffet, you can also add on with some of Kkongdon's a-la-carte dishes.
Bibimbap (Korean Hotstone Rice), $12.
$12 may seem relatively expensive, but its all worth the price with the generous amount of ingredients in it!
This portion is good to share between 2!
NZ Ribeye, $22.
If the 7 different types of marinated meat couldn't satisfy you (I don't see why), you can always extra order some premium cuts from the a-la-carte menu as well.
180g of mouth-watering goodness! :D
I like my beef to be medium rare. ^^
I say this is surely worth the $22 and if you're having the Korean BBQ, add on is just $17! Super worth a try to pamper yourself!
Kimchi Pancake, $10.80.
This was perhaps the only let down of the night. I wish the kimchi could be more in the pancake.
Galbitang (Beef short ribs soup), $17.
Comtempated between Samyetang (Korean Ginseng Chicken Soup) and this, but decided on the latter since our host highly recommended us this beef short ribs soup. We were so glad that we adhere to her recommendation! The soup was very clear but definitely not lacking in flavours at all! Best of all, the beef was so tender! Could do with another bowl of this now~
Free flow of sliced fruits to end the night (included in the buffet menu).
Really appreciate that the fruits are really sweet!
Also, unlike most Korean BBQ places, the food are being left in the open, at Kkongdon, all the food are served fresh to your table (beside kimchi)! I think this is a very good practice especially with raw meat.
Overall, we really enjoyed Kkongdon's BBQ buffet (you should see our round tummies after the meal! :P), not only so, the a-la-carte dishes that we had were generously satisfying! I could do with the bibimbap and short ribs soup any time! :')
ps: if you don't fancy Korean BBQ, Kkongdon serves up some really good lunch deals as well! Do check out their website for more information! ^^
