Decided to head down to I’m Kim Korean BBQ which is conveniently located at School of the Arts to celebrate our end of exams after hearing good reviews about it with it’s affordable prices! They have student price for their buffet, so we paid around $14-$15 for their lunch buffet after all the taxes and charges.
I must say, their spread of food is really goood! I’m definitely loving this place more than 2D1N Korean BBQ or Ssikkek Korean BBQ now! You’re advise to either make a reservation or go early, otherwise, be prepared to queue and wait for around 15-30mins. We reached about 1 hour later after the BBQ buffet hours has started, so it was already full house by then. But their staffs are really friendly and cherry, always updating us how long more do we have to wait and offer us to get some drinks first while waiting.
Let’s cut to the chase – FOOD!
Variety of appetizer available to start off your meal and also the various sauces to accompany your meats
the vegetable choices and kimchi!
& of course! whats korean BBQ without the meat?! Highly recommend to try their ‘volcano’ chicken! Gets the kick of spicy-ness as you chew on it one after another. All of their meats are well marinated, fresh and of appropriate thickness. Personally, i prefer the meats that are more strongly flavored which means they are marinated with hot sauces.
Choice of drinks! Yes, they have my favorite – Shikhye – korean rice punch! and the korean barley tea. Good for cleansing the oily-ness after eating all the BBQ meats.
When you think that’s all for the variety, you are so wrong! They have quite a number of cooked food ranging from commonly known korean delights like kimchi fried rice, tteokbokki, japchae, ginseng chicken soup, kimchi jjigae to others finger snacks like fried nugget, wedges etc. I will not say that the korean delights are authentic but at least i felt that it was passable for the price we are paying for and of course, not to forget the main reason we are here for are for the BBQ meats!
It was really an enjoyable dining experience. The whole area is spacious with sufficient ventilation but its a korean BBQ after all, so dont expect stepping out without smelling like one k! Thumb up for the food, service and ambiance!
