I bought vouchers for the BBQ Buffet at Hyang To Gol at Resorts World. It’s actually located on the waterfront side which makes it easier to park the car at Vivo and take a shuttle or leisurely walk across the bridge than park at RWS – 13 buckeroos for a slightly over an hour lunch, completely negating any discount I saved on the vouchers. $19.90 for the buffet that is originally priced at $25 before taxes but with a $13 parking fee slapped on, I barely saved!
A couple of things to note:
It has been a while since I’ve been to an ala carte buffet that scared me and the one at Hwang To Gol did. Perhaps it is the clientele – not wanting to sound elitist but hardly do I see people squeeze, crowd and hover around the dish for the hottest serving to swipe it all off within minutes, at a hotel buffet or at least a above medium priced buffet. Certainly relived the days that pizzahut and beach road steamboat buffets were all the rage.
Korean banchan is one way to fill the tum especially with the variety and bite-sized portions. The range was more than decent I say – kimchi, fried tofu, anchovies, octopus, potato salad and a ton of other veggies. Decent start I say though I barely touched the salad corner.
Kimchi for the kimchi fans.
Favourite big headed bean sprouts.
BBQ that was what we came for was an order as you eat system – pork belly, chicken, and ribs were the main features. I like the pork belly best. I was really expecting a proper grill with meats furnished. Anyway beeline for this was crazy.
In all its grease, it was just batter with spring onion.
A tad stale and flesh mushy.
These were wiped off so fast, I wonder why..and these are not even salmon sashimi. A mentality of no prawns but shrimp is suffice?
Nothing much I say.
Decent enough for me to head back for thirds! Juicy and crispy wings.
Singaporean Fried Rice
Surprisingly decent with luncheon meat and egg – never quite thought this simple dish would stand out in a buffet!
Fried too soft.
Just the way they should taste but a bit more spice and ingredients would make this good.
They had it minced and in slices, both were polished off at lightning speed as well. I simply did not think much of it.
There was a variety of soups too – spicy tofu, spicy beef, ginseng chicken and pumpkin soup. I’d say the spicy tofu soup was more like what I’d have at Hwang To Gol main restaurant. Spicy beef turned out more like vegetable soup.
Average buffet with spotty service but for the price, I do not think there’s much to complain.
