As an ardent fan of Korean stew, it is hard to see why I would give Seoul Yummy a miss, especially when it comes to their bubbling red stew. My record-breaking moment was gracing the popular restaurant at least twice per week because I simply love their Kimchi Jjigae so much!
Every few months, Seoul Yummy would roll out a new promotion for a limited time period. The most recent launch is the Jjamppong Combo $49.80 and Anju Style $27.80.
Jjamppong Combo consists of a Spicy Seafood Noodle Stew, a choice of one appetiser and one dessert. The portion is good enough to fit two to three pax.
For every purchase of the Jjamppong Combo, you can add on $19.80 for the Anju Style which is well-worth every penny for its hearty serving of meats and seafood.
Seoul Yummy’s version of the Jjamppong comes in a broth made from a blend of Korean spicy paste and fermented shrimps, together with ingredients such as prawns, mussels, clams, squids, cabbages, onions and noodles.
The noodles is specially imported and a kind of chewy Korean wheat noodle called Jjolmyon.
I was really excited as the pot started to boil in a sea of red, marking its readiness to be served.
The noodles tasted like glass noodles but with a slight chewiness and opacity.
The crustaceans, having well soaked up some of the spicy soup, was juicy and sweet with a tinge of spiciness. On the other hand, the chopped onions gave no restraint as they cooked to such softness that would make cotton candy cry.
As for the soup, it was mildly spicy, flavourful and irresistibly addictive. I can’t help but have bowls after bowls of these, and mourned the last drop.
One of the appetisers we chose was the Chicken Dumplings. Fried till crispy, each wrap was stuffed plump with scrumptious meats.
Some other selections include Potato Pancake, Fried Prawns, Spam Rice Balls, Stylo Spam, Fried Chicken and Pork Belly (+$1).
Dessert was the Crunch Generation. Fine fluffy shaved ice was topped with a dollop of red bean and crunchy almond flakes, and patted down in cereal crunch. Colourful rice cakes were arranged around the surface, each one surprising us with hidden fillings.
Anju Style was a sizeable platter with 2 grilled prawns, pork belly, chicken & beef short plate, grilled oyster mushroom and vegetables, and served with ssam sauce.
One of the die die must try was the pork belly, braised till tender soft with fats that literally dissolved upon my tongue. My second favourite went to the beef short plate that beckoned to be eaten in vigour.
Seoul Yummy never fails to wow with its creations. Previously, they even had a Spicy Challenge featuring the Level 5 Dak Bokkeum Tang that had burnt the tongues of many.
Looking forward for more upcoming seasonal promotions!
