Food Review: Daessiksin Korean BBQ Buffet


Hello everyone! Today, I am going to introduce you guys a good and value for money Korean BBQ Buffet restaurant. 

DaeSsiksin is an All-You-Can-Eat Korean Grill Barbeque Restaurant offering 10 to 12 different types of signature marinated meats, fresh ingredients and a range of Korean delicacies. The Korean Barbeque or Gogigui (meat roast) over a grill releases a pleasant, unique blend of flavors that tastes as good as it looks. Each item on the buffet line is authentically created by the team of Korean chefs to complement the décor 
reminiscent of a busy street in Seoul - perfect for friends and family to dine and have a good time. So if you are looking for a place to celebrate a special occasion or culinary change, ask for the special add-ons to augment the barbecue experience. 

When down to their latest outlet at westmall to catch up with my friends. We decided to have Korean BBQ buffet as I was craving for it. 

During dinner time, it was so pack in the restaurant. We reached around 8pm and it almost full house. So my advice is to make a reservation with them before coming down for your dinner.

The buffet station.

Chicken Wings -

The chicken wings was well marinated but it was slightly soggy maybe due to the heat and was live it too long in the heater container.

Japchae (Glass Noodle) - 

My favourite noodle in Korean cuisine. This glass noodle was slightly disappointing as it was a tad too dry and lack of taste.

Fried Sweet Potatoes - 

The sweet potatoes was good. Trust me, you should try it yourselves.

Fried Potatoes -

Potatoes will love it too. Sweet potatoes and normal potatoes both are good and well fried.

Braised Pork Belly -

Good and worth it. The pork belly was well braised with the aromatic braised sauce. The pork belly was soft, tender, well cover with the aromatic braises sauce and the fats was that fatty and oily.

Cheese - 

You can add $3 for a bowl of cheese. Heat up the cheese on the bbq grill till it melted. The cheese goes well with almost all things. The cheese lover definitely will go crazy about it!!

What we had on our table! Feasting all the yummy food and enjoyed it.

What is on the buffet station?

Meats: Pork Belly, Pork Bacon, Pork collar, Marinated Pork, Chicken Bulgogi, Spicy chicken bulgogi, beef bulgogi, beef ribeye, beef short rib, beef short plate.

Vegetable, seafood and others: cherry tomatoes, prawn, squid, sausage, corn salad, short mushroom, enoki mushroom, pancakes, spicy rice cakes, orange, kimchi, red bean soup, seawees soup, mushroom soup and fish cake soup etc.

My Verdict: 
Meats is always my favourite in buffet. I like their spicy chicken bulgogi, beef bulgogi, and beef ribeye. The spicy chicken bulgogi is the must to try, the spicy chicken bulgogi is well marinated and it spiced up your taste-bud. The beef bulgogi is well marinated too, I really their marinated sauce. Try not to grill the beef bulgogi and beef ribeye for too long. Best to eat it at medium texture. Try to dip with the melted cheese, it will give you different taste.
