I’m Kim Korean BBQ is no stranger to Singaporeans. Known for its value for money KBBQ, the lunch option ($14.90) is something you should check out if you’re free on a weekday and craving a good meal of KBBQ.
I’m Kim Korean BBQ at School of the Arts offers a fuss free dining package. For just one price, you not only get ingredients for the BBQ but also cooked food such as japchae and tteokbokki. Appetisers and drinks are also free flow!
Both items are a must try!!! The Volcano Chicken looks menacing but it actually isn’t that spicy. On the contrary, I loved the savoury flavour that goes super well with the lettuce provided. The pork belly was really fresh and juicy! The thickness was just nice so you still get that crunch and bite after BBQ-ing. Take note that one piece can be rather long so you might want to order bit by bit instead of say 5 strips at one go.
I was initially slightly disappointed that they didn’t offer better cuts for lunch but I quickly took back my words. The beef was well marinated and despite the lack of fats, it was not rubbery at all.
For their lunch buffet, the meats are limited to those two mentioned about with the addition of Black Pepper Chicken and marinated Pork Belly. While it seems very limited, the quality of the meats are rather good so you don’t feel shortchanged at all.
The japchae and tteokbokki are not worth ordering unless you really have a craving for those two items. Sadly I ordered these and became too full to try the other items. That said, nothing else on the menu sounded tempting enough. I’d rather save my tummy space for the BBQ meats.
I’m Kim Korean BBQ also has desserts so you can end off your meal on a happy note. If desserts are not your thing, you can also drink a bowl of Ginseng Chicken soup to wash down grease away.
Note that I’m Kim BBQ imposes a strict 90minute dining to their buffets. I definitely could have eaten more meat, but by the time I wanted to request for more (15 minutes left in my 90min limit), they did not allow me to do so. So bear that in mind and maybe request for more meat upfront instead. Nevertheless, at $14.90, I’m Kim Weekday Lunch Korean BBQ at SOTA is worth every penny.
