GoroGoro Steamboat & Korean Buffet @ Orchard Gateway Emerald | Somerset, Singapore

Wednesday, March 09, 2016

GoroGoro Steamboat & Korean Buffet Restaurant is helmed by the team that managed I'm Kim Korean BBQ and Kokomama Marketplace which are both located in School of The Arts (SOTA). Being the new venture, GoroGoro takes on a new location in Orchard Gateway @ Emerald, accessible via the lift in Crate & Barrel.

Besides having a strategic location, they are also distancing themselves from the pricey image of typical steamboat buffet restaurants situated in town area, by providing a light-hearted gleeful dining experience without having to burn a hole in your pockets.

The name GoroGoro came from the sound our hungry/empty stomach makes, it also signify the sound of steamboat broth boiling. Hence the brand is represented by a cute hungry monster, and each broth has its own mini mascot providing the fun element. Having said that, they offer six soup broth to choose from, namely Ginseng Chicken, Beauty Collagen, Mala, Tomyum, Tomato and Vegetarian. 

It comes with two soup and my first pick would be Vegetarian as it is light and tasted like Japanese oden or rather white radish soup, followed by Beauty Collagen which also has a lighter taste as compared to those thick collagen soup.

If you want an additional soup, you can top it up at $5++ per table. Looking for something spicier, go for Mala though it isn't very spicy in my opinion. Whereas, the rest of the soups tends to be saltier, if that fits your palette, give it a try.

You can expect up to 50 selections of fresh meats, vegetables, drinks & Korean savouries for weekday lunch and over 70 choices for dinners and weekend dining.

Do note that the tasting session was held on a weekday dinner and I would say the buffet offers quite an extensive variety, especially so for the steamboat spread. All the essential steamboat ingredients are here!

Eat to your heart’s content with these Meat Madness counter containing from pork, chicken, beef and seafood such as squid.

Not forgetting the Korean savouries - cooked food at the buffet line. A long stretch of dishes to choose from, I personally recommend the Korean Fried Chicken and the Korean Soy Chicken. It’s usually gone in minutes but thank goodness it’s being replenished quite timely. Other dishes includes Japchae and Korean pancake.

Drinks, fruits and condiments range are decent. Glad there’s Korean Brown Rice Barley drink too!

A reminder, only take what you can finish if not may have to pay a penalty for any wastage of food!

How can you end the Korean feast without a Korean dessert? These ice-cream are available for sale at $2 - 3++ per stick. The Melon flavoured ones got me falling in love at my first bite! Others includes Soda and Chocolate, which I have yet to try haahaa.
