Bornga Korean BBQ Restaurant at City Square (JB)

Date: 27.09.2014



Took me so long to get this posted, heehee....

This is another nom nom post, this time across the borders to Johor Bahru.

We did not wander else where, just stay in City Square Shopping Mall which is just besides the custom.

This Bornga Korean BBQ Korean Restaurant was introduced by hubby's colleague who had been here a few times.  I will murder her if it's not up to expectation.  But hey, not bad!  Which is why I still post it although it's a bit overdue >.<

Arrived around 11.30am, it was rather quiet, the crowd started coming in after 12pm.
Each table is equipped with an exhaust which keeps the restaurant smoke free.

Table setting with a paper place mat with some useful information on Korean BBQ.

Yes, stuff it all into the mouth at one go if you want good fortune, no need to be glam/dainty, nom nom nom.....

A long tray of fresh lettuce and other veg was served before our orders of BBQ meat came.

Charcoal grill, LOVE IT!

Woo Samgyup RM42.00 (pork belly)

We needn't lift a finger, just sit back while the serving staff did the grilling for us.

See and listen to the sizzling...
是香喷喷的咯!

While waiting, we nibbled on the side dishes which occupied the entire table.

The side dishes were so refreshing and we felt less guilty heehee...


The metal grill plate was replaced by a clean one before they start to grill another serving; I appreciate this so much!

Mansinchang RM30 (pork belly)

As I had mentioned, a clean grilling plate was changed, so that we could enjoy the meat and not with any charred bits.

The slices were thick but meat was surprisingly tender.

Yangyum Dwaejigalbi RM33 (beef ribs)

Meat was very well seasoned without masking away it's natural taste.  The BBQ fragrance really knocked us down.  Meat was slightly charred on the outside, yet juicy at each bite.  This is what makes Korean BBQ so irresistible.

Galbitang RM30 (beef soup)
Generous loads of beef chunks, would be perfect if meat were more tender.

The soup was flavor and really tasty.  Most importantly, non oily!
So good that not a drop was to be wasted, slurp...

Towards the end of the meal, we were served this tea which I doesn't know what it is.
Tasted like ribbena with upgraded sourness lolxx...

The 4 of us also ordered rice which wasn't reflected on the bill and 2 soft drinks at RM3 each.
The bill total came to be RM156.20 with 10% service charge.  I would say it's quite worth it for the quality of food, ambience and good service.

Very pleasant experience, we left the restaurant without any BBQ fumes on us.  We weren't entirely full as we were saving some stomach space to try other food.

It was only recently that I found out they have branches in Singapore too.  Haven't visit the local ones.  Can any kind soul comment and tell me the difference between this and the ones here?

City Square have lots of restaurants which looks very promising and tempting.  Bornga Korean BBQ is one of them, do check it out.

Horizon Bistronomy at The Punggol Settlement

*sponsored



Quite some time ago I posted a Complete Guide to the North Eastern Riverine Loop at Punggol.

It's quite happening at Punggol Promenade. There are chalets, horsing ridding, fishing, strolling of doggies, jogging, cycling, nice sea view for pak tor (dating) etc..
Click HERE to read more about this nice rustic part of Punggol.

With all these activities going on at Punggol Promenade, people need food to keep going!  So, The Punggol Settlement is developed!
Image credit www.facebook.com/ThePunggolSettlement
Nice helicopter view and now let's get back onto the ground...
As you can see The Punggol Settlement is a long stretch of 2 storey high building.  It's filled with food restaurants.  There's also a mini Giant Supermarket, a 7-eleven and a bicycle rental shop.

Within The Punggol Settlement, there's a very special restaurant....
Horizon Bistronomy
Horizon Bistronomy offers fine quality French cuisine without burning your pockets.

Cozy at the inside....

Breezy and pretty romantic at the outdoor.
This is a random shot which happens to catch this lady, who's totally 陶醉 (revel) in the ambience, heehee....

Awesome sea view backdrope.  It's as if we are on a overseas vacation lolxx...
Auntie Susan and Uncle Peter are still very much in love, with food.  Okay, with each other as well.

Enough of lovey dovey, food pics rolling in now!

Starters first

Chilled Crab Meat on Angel's Hair S$11.90
Exquisite truffle angel hair topped with juicy jumbo crab meat and salmon roe which explodes with sweetness in my mouth.
HIGHLY RECOMMENDED!

Assorted Tomatoes Salad (vegetarian) S$12.90
Tomatoes from 3 regions are used - Local, Japan and USA, all tossed with special made pesto.  Those cute little white balls are fresh burrata cheese.  They are chewy and light in taste which compliments the refreshing tomatoes.

Mains

Horizon Pork 2 Way S$25.00
2 way means you get to savor meat prepare in 2 methods -
* Pork belly braised for 25 hours, thus melt in your mouth with rich flavors
* Kurobuta Pork Tenderloin, grilled to perfect texture.
Meat is serve with this very unique Cauliflower Puree.  I don't even like cauliflower to begin with, but I was completely sold at the first spoon in my mouth.  Almost wanted to request for more, heehee...  It's like whipped potato, but much more tastier!  The black Grape Mustard is spicy with a tinge of sweet, it's as addictive as our sambal chilli.  Some black pepper sauce is poured over, personally I would omit it.  Everything on the plate is excellent on it's own.  MUST ORDER!

King of the Sea S$22
Miso infused torched King Prawn and King Salmon.  Value for money!

Founder of Horizon Bistronomy, cheerful, young and handsome Chef Chris Fong.
He's preparing us desserts!

Citrus White Chocolate Mousse S$12.00
Beautiful presented on a black slate is a sweet citrus combination of Valhona white chocolate mousse, lemon curd and orange creme on crunchy short crust.  The coarse powder at the side which I mistaken as crushed peanut is white chocolate.  It's gives the mousse a more interesting taste when eaten together with.

Fig and Bacon Sabayon S$9.80
How can bacon be part of dessert?  YES, it can fuse in with harmony cos the bacon is candied with sweetness, very similar to our chinese bak kwa but more crispy.  Together with berries and fig compote, Champagne Sabayon is poured over vanilla ice-cream.  Champagne Sabayon has really given this dessert an extravagant touch with alluring bitter taste.   Perfect and delighting for adults, but not so for children, understandably.

I was so drunk with satisfaction and happiness after completing the menu.  But Horizon Bistronomy's kitchen was still busy......, with potted plants???
They seemed to be preparing some potted plants for us to bring home as souvenirs.
哎哟,太客气了啦 ,heehee.... I was humming 费玉清's song "送你一把泥土"....

这把泥土,这把泥土,祖先耕过敌人踏过,你我曾经牵手走过......
You all go Youtube to search for the whole song if interest, hur hur...

Shortly, lovely pots of plants were brought to our tables.  The surprise came when they announced "Here's our surprise dessert for you all!"
Serious?!?  DESSERTS!!!??  You want us to eat soil??  I look again, hey hey, it's not soil, it's chocolate!

How CUTE!!


Garden By The Bay S$14.00
Innovative and absolutely cute creation!  Beneath dark chocolate soil is apple compote infused with cranberry followed by a generous layer of vanilla mousse with cubes of fresh strawberries and kiwis.
MUST TRY!

Totally yummy, so worth the calories....

Away from the biz and buss of commercialized malls, Horizon Bistronomy is a nice place to chill and relax without distractions from mobile phones (being very near to Johor, local network may be interrupted).

So, Singapore maybe small, but there's plenty of places to explore, just keep an eye on this bloggie, more lobangs coming ahead!

Gonna end this post with a group pic of my table mates and Chefs ^.^
