29th June 2013 - Dinner at Nolboo Hangari Galbi

today is my FIL's birthday and the initial plan is to go my ILs house to celebrate his birthday, but hubby calls in the morning and says my FIL don wan to celebrate this year and so we decide to dine out tonight.. just the 2 of us.. we have no idea wan to eat what and hubby says he has cravings for some BBQ stuffs and so he suggests going to Orchard Central to see what we can have there.. upon reaching, we do not wan to have what and many restaurants here have long queue.. we are so lucky to see no queue at this Korean restaurant, just nice, since hubby wan BBQ food, we can have Korean bbq food here.. and we are seated immediately...
the cute Korean gal statue outside the restaurant

 the sauce and spiced salt for the bbq meats
 we are served this complimentary corn porridge, quite nice.. it taste sweet...
 Usually when we have Korean food, they will serve a range of appetisers before the food is served. The appetisers that were served at Nolboo is very nice, the kimchi is spicy enough and I like the salad they serve, the salad sauce is not the usual mayo sauce but is the wet sauce that taste sourish and a tinge of sesame oil taste. Hubby like the lettuce with the Korean chilli paste and the Korean fishcake. Nice appetiser range that we finish almost all the appetisers

Sam-gye Tang (Korean Ginseng Soup)
Nice soup with ginseng taste, the chicken is cooked till tender and the rice that is soaked in the soup has absorbed the ginseng soup making it soft like porridge and with nice ginseng chicken taste. Best taken while its still hot.
 Dakgogi Bibim Bap (Bulgogi Chicken Bibim Bap)
Hubby and I were so addicted this, this bibim bap is so yummy that we will come back for more for this. The bibim bap is served in a hotplate kind of bowl, Korean chilli sauce and some vegetables with the bulgogi chicken is added into the rice, the hot bowl makes the rice crispy with a little burnt taste. It taste great with the sauce and chicken. Yummy.
 Sam-gyeop-sal (Fresh Pork Belly) - $18.90 for 200g
The staffs here bbq this for us and so it is grilled to perfection, the pork belly is not burnt and still tender. I never try this dish but according to hubby, the pork belly is tender and the pork belly is well marinated with the sauce, making the pork taste great.
 Halgari GalBi (Marinated Beef Short Ribs) - $35.90 for 320g
Again, this is grilled by the staffs and it is grilled to perfection, not burnt. I heart this marinated beef short ribs as the beef is so tender. The beef is so well marinated that when you put the beef into your mouth and bite, you can taste the sauce and with the beef, its heaven. Apart from beef, there is also prawns, onions and corn too. The prawns are fresh and do not stick to the shell. I am so full that I never eat the onion and corn and so no comment on that.
 see our table full of food...
 overall, this place is good with prompt and friendly waitresses.. thou the price is a bit high but i find it worth it coz the food is really yummy and the servings huge.. so if you are at Ochard area and looking for Korean food, you can visit Nolboo Hangari Galbi at
