Halal Korean BBQ and Japanese cuisine are pretty hard to come by, but we definitely have room for more in the local F&B scene. Need a new place for group meetings or relaxing dates? Belonging to a Muslim Seoul Ju Bang in Balestier could become a new weekend favourite.
Situated in HomeTeamNS Balestier-JOM near Toa Payoh MRT Station, the restaurant officially opened in May 2022 to little fanfare. The best part? You don’t have to be a clubhouse member to dine here.
The interior is cozy, illuminated with light garlands and offers a breathtaking view of the swimming pool. There are also omakase-style counter seats for those who want a more hands-on experience, as well as exposed live seafood tanks (so you know the seafood you’re getting is Costs).
You can choose to dine indoors or sit at one of the “semi al fresco” tables by the pool. It’s like having a barbecue by the pool, but with all the work done for you.
Seoul Ju Bang prides itself on being a Japanese and Korean restaurant serving a selection of high quality fresh ingredients. From meats and seafood to stews and rice bowls, you’re bound to find something to please your palate. You also get free sides when you order three or more dishes – yes, please.
Whether yakiniku, mookata, or Korean barbecue, I can never resist grilled beef, and the selection here is quite impressive. He understands the tastes of Prime Prime Rib (S$35), Wagyu Beef Karubi (S$20)and Beef tongue (S$10). Sit back and watch the staff grill your cuts of choice, before enjoying them with lettuce wraps, kimchi and garlic.
If grilled seafood is more your thing, order the plump and juicy Hotate (S$18), Shrimp (S$18) Where Mussels (S$18).
Although the barbecue menu is heavily beef and seafood oriented, other options include Premium Lamb Loin (S$35), Spicy Chicken Leg (S$12), and even Foie Gras (S$18). Hopefully more alternatives for non-beef eaters will be introduced to the menu soon!
Take a break from all that grilled meat with a huge selection of sashimiSushi, don buri, and ramen. Menu highlights include the Salmon Ebi Menai (S$19.90), Amaebi Crab Tobiko ($12)and Live oyster with yuzu jelly (S$7.90).
If you are celebrating a special occasion or just looking to treat yourself, look no further than appetizing University of Otoro (S$29.90), Bafun Uni Gunkan (S$38)and Wagyu truffle gift (S$39.90).
