There is a reason why people choose to work in the city.
Even at 9.30 pm, we were still able to secure the Set Meal A (S$34 nett, two pax), which consisted of a soup and a rice dish. For the soup, it was Chicken With Ginseng. The crunchy, chopped leeks gave the soup a nice zing. Stuffed with ingredients like glutinous rice and herbs, the chicken was a substantial meal by itself. The Bibimbap with pork was tasty, thanks to the sweet and salty gochujang. More namul would have been appreciated, though. There were refillable, complimentary starters as well. I thought the lotus root slices soaked in orange juice were refreshing. The mashed potato salad was good too. And there was the ubiquitous kimchi, the Korean achar.
Add another S$6 for two desserts to complete the meal. We had the Obak Creme Brulee, a pumpkin puree topped with caramelized sugar and Kimchi Mousse, based with a vanilla sponge and sandwiched between two pieces of ginger macaron. The creme brulee was mediocre while the kimchi mousse was, well, of an acquired taste. I will stick to my Coke.
That's the joy of working in the city. There is always a something waiting for you, come day or night; good food to prepare you for the OTs, a swanky club to destress on Ladies' Night or simply, a new movie when the schedule permits. The only thing you will wish for is another twenty four hours to a day.
