My 27th Bday celebration Part 2 Daessiksin Korean BBQ & Nunsaram Korea Dessert Cafe with Precious

My 27th Bday celebration Part 2 with Precious
@ Daessiksin Korean BBQ & Nunsaram Korea Dessert Café

Did you realize I started with bday celebration part 2? Why not Part 1? Cos I had the part 1 celebration with AJALYA, but realized we did not take ANY PHOTOS surprisingly. Probably we were too hungry? Also, cos its HAIDILAO again, so I did not bother to take photo.

So, my part 2 was with Precious sisters. Decided on korea bbq as I have been seeing ppl posting at instagram, so the sudden craving, although I shouldn't as I should be on DIET.

Reader out there, please don't show these to Liping. I'm just trying to share the JOY... wahhahahha

This time round, I have told all the groups to just leave out the bday cake. I just thought of having it on my actual birthday itself with my family will do. But, they were all really stubborn bunch. I had birthday every single session. They love me too much, can't wait to see me getting FATTER.

I pretty like the place, as there's a variety of cooked and uncooked food for bbq, free flow of soups and drinks. Pretty well ventilated too, air con was also cooling. So, I don't eat and perspire like crazy when I did at 2D1N korea bbq back then. Price was also pretty affordable, but well it's a treat, so I don't have to pay anyway.

Kimchi soup

I personally like the fried glass noodle.
Sweet and spicy chicken was a little on the sweeter side. Sweet potato was too sweet.
Sushi was alright. Korea pancake was soso, was a little cold already. The fried potato was also a little cold already.

There's the red bean porridge and crab meat soup.
I find the red bean porridge not bad, it's like some red bean paste but slightly diluted.
The crab meat soup was diluted.

Red vinegar and fruits.
Initially I thought vinegar was for the crabmeat soup.
Then when I opened up, it's like a drink with a big ice cube inside.
I wanted to try, but my friend told me someone was pouring into her cup and taste and pour again to her cup, so the ladle seems to like already touched her drinks...
then, arghh.... forget it.

The sotong was very Q Q. The meat taste good.

Cheesecake gotten by Wendy.

Overall, I would give it a 7.5/10. As it's pretty affordable, very clean and neat, a variety of food. Staffs were efficient. The whole eating environment was quite ok, not very smoky, hot or noisy.

Then, we went for our Korea BingSu next. It's kinda the IN thing now too. I saw many ppl posted online too, and since it's just at Orchard Central, so..... Let's GO!

Before we came, I have already checked out the price, ranged from $12.90 to $15.90.
Since I'm being treated, why not? Oops.
No la, even I have to pay, I will still try for at least once.

We ordered Injeolmi and Black sesame.

 photo 20150512_210723_zpsgtzvngpz.jpg
Injeolmi Bingsu - Shaved ice covered with soybean powder and added with some chewy rice cakes.
 I like chewy rice cake.
However, I find this not much taste, have to pour the condensed milk over the it.
But the shaved ice are really very soft.

 photo 20150512_211106_zpsyjuzi3zc.jpg
I would prepare the black sesame one. Cos I like black sesame and red bean!
But the thing is, if we kept eating the top yummy part, then the below shaved ice will be bland.
Just as I thought there's nothing inside.... oooh... Found some peanut inside too!!!
