Manbok Chinatown – Korean BBQ & Steamboat Combo

Manbok 
Thank you very much to Hungry Go Where and Manbok Chinatown for the invitation.

With Korean BBQ Restaurants swarming this little red dot called Singapore, each restaurant must have its plus points to survive and thrive in the competitive F&B scene in Singapore. Although the idea is Korean BBQ and Steamboat buffet was pioneer by Seoul Garden in the 1990s in Singapore, let must just say that Manbok Chinatown is way ahead of them in terms of quality.

Tokyo – Genpin Fugu Karurazaka : Japan Fugu Experience


Fugu or Puffer Fish. The cute and adorable creature status symbol as delicacy in Japan is legendary. The cute and adorable creature can also be lethally poisonous if it is not handled properly, the Chefs in Japan must be certified before they can handle this fish. The liver (the fattiest but the most poisonous part) and other toxic parts of the fish has to be disposed in a seal container marked toxic.
