Korean Cuisine at Ya Zhou Café in Singapore

17 Oct

The Ya Zhou Café is a Korean restaurant in the ‘basement’ of the Suntec City Mall, next to the Fountain of Wealth. As you can see on the picture below, the menu consist of a card with pictures of dishes. I seriously cannot recall what was on the menu, but just check out the pictures of the food!

That plate above was served sizzling hot. And seriously, the sound of a stack of beef sizzling away on a plate sounds like the best symphony you could compose. The beef was slightly seasoned with spicy herbs and other spices that I couldn’t identify, but it tasted great.

The dish above was a mie soup with a beef broth. Also served with a significant amount of beef. Great.

Add some Tiger beer to the meal and it makes it instantly better.  The only thing I didn’t quite like was the soup that you can see above on the right. It was more like a broth, but it tasted a bit strange. It had a powdery, grainy ingredient which wasn’t really to my liking.

This was another delicious sizzling hot plate of meat. With this amount of meat and some rice your meal is going to get great. If you are a vegetables fan you really should order another dish since the microscopic touch of green on top were the only vegetables around.

On thing that was a great side dish was the kimchi that you can see on the bottom left of the picture above. Kimchi consist of fermented vegetables and it really does taste a lot better than it sounds.

This stewy dish was once again filled with meat, meat meat. Oh, great food times followed.

    Are you sure that was Korean food?

      Well it should have been;). Especially since they say they are a Korean restaurant. But since I am not a regular eater of the Korean cuisine and by no means an expert, I cannot tell you if it was authentic or rubbish. I’m guessing you have your doubts? What is making you doubt? Whatever it was though, it tasted good enough.

        Well, your description of the “powdery, grainy ingredient” makes me think it’s not quite authentic. And by looking at your pics, it seems as if they combined a few dishes into one and made a hodge-podge of stuff. The noodle soup just doesn’t look not right. But don’t mind me, I am sort of finicky when it comes to Korean food because I grew up eating it. I guess if it tasted good, then that’s a good sign.

        No, I can understand that you could have your doubts. I’ve grown up with Indonesian food and in The Netherlands we have our fair share of food that is titled as Indonesian, but has nothing to do with it at all. It’s more of a fusion, adjusted to the taste of the Dutch. But still, it tastes good. The same could be said of this food. And you are right, whatever it was it tasted fine which is the most important part;)

    Look so good!! Note: for a second I thought that “tiger beer” was “tiger beef,” and my eyebrows were sad and raised. Nm.

    I love sizzling meat, and man, that sound is great! That looks like Miso soup?

      Looking and thinking back, it could very well have been miso soup.

    I’ll be in Singapore in February. I can’t wait for some more good Asian food!
