Seoul Jjimdak is our go-to Korean restaurant in Singapore for Budae Jjigae and authentic Chicken Jjjimdak. One visit is not enough, and so, we’ve made multiple visits to this humble eatery at City Square Mall because hearty Korean stew always wins our hearts.
And now, Seoul Jjimdak is having a daily lunch special that gives you even more reason to head down—S$29.90 for a huge pot of Budae Jjigae or Jjimdak, and this special price is also applicable on weekends. How does that sound?
We have never experienced dim sum the way we have at Mitzo Restaurant & Bar. The swanky, sleek and modern interior is a stark contrast to the traditional Chinese cuisine that is served here. To match the trendy interior, most of Mitzo’s classic dim sum dishes are elevated with stunning presentations and intricate plating, while still retaining the original flavour palette.
While we love their tantalising and luxurious dishes in their Weekend Brunch, we are stoked that we now have a new reason to pop by on weekday afternoon - Mitzo is launching the all-new value-for-money lunch sets on 12 October 2016. A 3-course meal goes for S$28++ per person, and a 4-course meal is S$38++ per person.
