Korean BBQ Buffets is considered a past time to us; well, awesome socialising activity while stuffing ourselves silly, if you insist. Having Korean BBQ is more of an activity rather than just having a meal because you usually cook the meats and seafood yourself while chatting with friends; and then, everyone enjoys and have fun together.
Cooking up a delicious meal full of marinated meats and seafood a la minute can only be a good thing – even better when it is a buffet, so you can have them all free flow!

This affordable Korean joint is great for casual meals when you need some catchup sessions with your buddies. The lively atmosphere and bustling crowd sure made us feel like we are in Seoul, along with the busy streets of Hongdae.

What we love most about Don Dae Bak Korean BBQ is that the restaurant uses charcoal grill instead of the usual gasoline grill. That sure makes a lot of difference to our meats!
This small outlet along Kreta Ayer is just like any usual Korean BBQ place – round communal tables that is surrounded by kimchi and pickles (free flow), all your sauces and chilli, and loud Korean pop songs on repeat mode.
At S$23.90+, don’t expect wagyu beef or kurobuta pork. However, what you’d get is a very decent selection of meat such as Marinated Beef, Beef Brisket, Pork Belly, Spicy Pork Belly, Shoulder Loin, Marinated Shoulder Loin, Marinated Chicken, and Spicy Marinated Chicken.
