Seoul Garden KL Festival City Mall

A couple of days after my first visit to KL Festival City Mall, I was back there again yesterday night. This round, it was to celebrate a dear colleague, Vennisa's farewell from the company and the venue we chose was the Seoul Garden Restaurant. Now I have passed by Seoul Garden's other outlets elsewhere but did not really dine there yet.

With a tagline that reads "The Table Barbeque People", the first impression I had on Seoul Garden was it is a typical dual steamboat restaurant, one where you could have your steamboat in the middle of the pot while grilling the meat on its side. I wasn't that far off from the truth, except Seoul Garden was priced at RM36.88++ per pax for an all you can eat steamboat buffet. It had less choices of food than I expected though.

Seoul Garden's decor

Seoul Garden KL Festival City Mall had a simple, and clean no frills decor, with the bowls and plates made from "kindergarden" plastics. For a moment, I thought I was back in my company's canteen. Probably they were afraid we will break the plates I guess. Anyway we reached the restaurant at around 7pm plus, just in time to jostle with the dinner crowd for the food.

Varied meat, seafood and vegetables for our steamboat

Now the choices of food available in Seoul Garden KL Festival City Mall were pretty limited. There were the mandatory beef, poultry and lamb meat, thoroughly seasoned, as well as seafood, but I've been to other steamboat buffets, and this place pales in comparison. Anyway we were there for our dear colleague's farewell, so I guess it's the company that matters.

Various Sauces to spice up your meat.

Personally I'm not a big fan of steamboat, but i do like to grill my own beef, lamb and chicken meat. It was rather amusing to see a few colleagues going for the vegetables while my table had meat overdose. Just check out a couple of shots of our steamboat in progress.

Overall it was a rather good meal, filling but not really fulfilling. I had my ice-cream for dessert, which surprisingly was the best part of my dining experience there. Do check out some photos which I manage to capture of my colleagues' happy faces that night. I guess the best part about dining at steamboat restaurants such as Seoul Garden was the feeling of friendship over a hot boiling pot of steamboat.

One for the album, Good Luck in your future endeavors Vennisa!

If you do drop by Kl Festival City Mall, do take note of Seoul Garden's new outlet there on the Ground Floor at the end just opposite Tang Shifu Restaurant. The prices to me does nto match the quality of the food, but I guess that's just my opinion.
