~ 食客 Ssikkek - Korean Grill BBQ Buffet ~

食客 Ssikkek is a Korean restaurant offering Korean grill BBQ buffet. Currently its outlets are located at North Bridge Road, Bras Basah and United Square. We hopped by the branch at Oriental Plaza to try out its buffet spread. 


Weekday lunch pricing is more affordable and attractive for our family where adult and child are charged at $14++ and $9++ respectively. This includes free flow of drinks. 

Each table has a built-in grill, scissor and metal tongs. Looking at the buffet counter, there is a section for salad lovers with corn salad, mixed salad, mixed vegetables and salad sauces. There is a smaller selection of vegetables with lettuce, mushroom, potatoes and raddish wrap available on the buffet bar. But that is fine with us as we are meat lovers! 

Moving on to the raw meat section, Ssikkek offers squid, chicken sausage, pork collar, pork bacon, pork belly, marinated chicken, beef and prawns! That got us excited already!

Other cooked side dishes include Kimchi, Dak-bbokeum (Spicy Stir-fried Chicken), glass noodles, spicy rice cakes, soup and rice. 

We got hold of most of the meat and started grilling. Pork bacon was too salty for our liking but the others were just right. Our preference still goes to the thin slices of pork belly and pork collar as it was quicker to grill and cook. The tender and juicy meat tasted great on its own or wrapping it with a piece of lettuce.

The other side dishes were just as satisfying, particularly the glass noodles. I lost count on the number of rounds I went to refill my bowl. :) I was disappointed with the flavour of the soup as it didn't suit my liking. 

Overall dining experience at Ssikkek was enjoyable. While digging into our food, the Korean MVs and songs also kept us entertained. Our kiddos were also humming along whenever they heard a familiar song. :) 

The only downside, as in most grill BBQ restaurant, would be the smoke emitted during cooking and leaving a strong stench of food smell on our clothing. Nevertheless, we love to be back again and maybe visit the other Ssikkek outlets.
