For those working in the Central Business District (CBD), I bet you can all agree that this is the most used phrase come lunch hour. Funny thing is, of all the areas in Singapore, I'd say that the CBD has the most food options from the quick and easy fast food joints to the very Singaporean hawker centres to the slightly classy restaurants and hipster cafes. Then again, with more options comes greater confusion on where to go for lunch every single day. Unless you're a create of habit like me who frequents her favourite places on a weekly basis to the point of being known on a first name basis by either the stall owner or the restaurant server, then choosing your lunch venue would definitely be a daily dilemma.

We went up the small glass lift that just connects the lobby up to the second floor. It's quite funny to have it there but whatever makes life more comfortable, right? When A and I got to the restaurant, we had to queue up for a few minutes. Wow, this place was popular! In fact, I saw tables of Koreans dining there. To me, seeing real Koreans dining at a Korean restaurant is always a good sign of the food's quality. The wait wasn't that long and I always enjoy chatting with A so I didn't really noticed how long it took for us to get our table.
For the number of times that I've visited this restaurant, I got to admit that I tend to stick to just two choices which I would interchange every so often. First was the Beef Bulgogi (S$12.90) which I can boldly say is one of the best that I've every tasted not only in Singapore but even outside the country too. The sliced beef has always been so tender and I love dipping this in some sesame oil-salt mixture which I would specifically ask for every time I dine there. This was actually the first set that I was able to try and I would also recommend this to everyone who dines there. This is definitely a must-order.
As much as I love discovering new places, I actually find greater happiness in being able to take friends to try my favourite restaurants too. I guess, this is why I've been blogging all these years in hopes that I can help you in times of need to answer the dreaded question -- "Where should we eat?"
