Half a day in Orchard Rd

Took half a day off today to clear our leaves, and off we went to Orchard for some dining, shopping and soaking on Christmas festivities.

It's beginning to look a lot like Christmas

We had lunch at K.Cook Korean BBQ buffet. Considering it's a weekday, I didn't make a booking and had to wait for a while for a a table. The place was actually packed. Luckily they have a good queueing system - we keyed in the group size and contact number on a device at the entrance and an sms was sent containing a link with updates on the queue progress. When a table was ready the staff gave us a call.

The restaurant is located on 7th floor in Orchard Central, half of it is outdoor with high ceiling and huge fan, another half is indoor. Grill pans are placed on tables, together with tongs and scissors. The decorations are simple but look good.

Food variety was alright. There were 3 types of salad, cut fruits (oranges and watermelon), fruit dessert,  some cooked dishes (rice cakes, glass noodles, rice, chicken wings, scallion pancake), and meat of course (beef bulgogi, pork belly, pork collar, marinated pork collar, marinated chicken, spicy chicken and sausages). There were also some side dishes like kimchi, radish, lettuce, sliced onions, enoki mushroom. Coke, sprite, fanta and ice water for drinks. For $14.90++ (price of weekday lunch), it's worth it.

Service was good too. Food was replenished promptly and dirty plates were cleared quickly. The not-so-good part of the lunch was the heat - it's really warm sitting outdoor in front of a smoking grill. And also that bbq smell that came home with us :)
