Ssikkek offers quite a wide range of 5 kinds of beef, 3 kinds of pork, chicken, sausage and prawns. There were also many cooked food items in the buffet which includes fried rice, deep fried chicken, Korean kimchi pancake, vermicelli, amongst other typical Banchan (Korean side dishes). The cooked dishes were rather cold despite being placed on the food warmers and we had to re-fry most of these items on our own bbq grill. The soup came in three flavours: kimchi, seaweed and miso. Ssikkek was very generous with the ingredients in the kimchi and seaweed soup. On the list of items was also cold kimchi soup which we could either have it as it is or with the addition of korean noodles to make cold soba. However, the cold kimchi soup was way too salty. The gochujang (Korean chilli paste) that went with the barbequed meat was not spicy enough too. Desserts were sweet rice soup and watermelon. The rice soup tasted seemingly like barley water. Ice cubes were also provided should one find the rice soup too sweet.

There was a wide range of condiments such as sesame oil, sesame salt, garlic, onions, soya sauce for us to use in the grills. One could attempt to whip up a variety of dishes according to your taste buds. Besides barbequing the meat, we had prawns barbequed on a bed of sesame sea salt. Our innovative minds also resulted in us creating stews by wrapping the meat together with the garlic, onions and sesame oil in the aluminium foil.

Service was efficient. The aluminum foil was frequently changed without us having to request for new ones. The place is well ventilated and more spacious than 2D1N Soju Bang. At a price of $24.60 for weekday dinner which is a couple of bucks more expensive than 2D1N Soju Bang, the wider variety of food and the shorter queue at SSikkek gives 2D1N Soju Bang a good run for their money.

  1. Well, I’m deciding whether to go Ssikkek Korean Grill BBQ or 2D1N, which one do you think is better? Thanks!

    • in our opinion, both places are largely similar, but Ssikkek was less crowded and more spacious.. 2D1N can get a lil noisy and rowdy..

  2. My family of 6 visited the novena outlet for lunch and the service is horrible. There was this particular petite girl with big plastic frames who doesn’t acknowledge when you try to get her attention and instead tells you off saying that she is attending to other tables first.
    No smiles, excuse me, please hold on etc and it happened thrice. The Philipino staffs are pleasant and helpful so we turned to them for help instead after this really nasty girl. The “aunties” there are polite so we were unlucky to get that girl serving our section. Our observations confirmed that she is the sort who doesn’t smile at diners and is just plain miserable working as a waitress. Even my dad who is a really patient man shook his head at her curtness. We won’t be going back there ever again no matter how good the food as there was no service recovery after our feedback.
