This had been my third visit to Brukori since they were opened. If you are interested, click here and here for my previous write-ups. When I posted my first blog entry on Brukori, Sister told me that she wanted to try Brukori on her next home visit.
On her recent home bound trip, I brought her to Brukori and invited Jennifer along. Jennifer loves Kimchi Jigae and was tempted to try Brukori’s version of Kimchi Jigae. We arrived at Little Soho shortly before the clock strikes 1PM. The food court was pretty packed with lunch crowd. We made our way to Brukori’s stall and proceeded to order.
On my second visit to Brukori, I was being told that they were sold out on Kimchi Jigae for the day. Unfortunately, Kimchi Jigae was unavailable until the following week when I was there last week. It looks like I have no fate with their Kimchi Jigae. San Diann even suggested that I should call in to check next time before going. Or perhaps book a portion for myself before going? LOL!
Without further ado, let me show you what we had for lunch the other day, shared among the three of us.
Tteokbokki (Half Portion) | B$4.00
Tteokbokki is a common street food in Korea. If you have a low threshold for spicy food, you might not like this. The pretty Korean lady from Brukori suggested that we add mozzarella cheese to tone down the spiciness. It did have some effect but it wasn’t much in my opinion.
I personally find the texture of the rice cakes a bit too thick and hard for my liking. The spicy sauce was good despite the spiciness. The addition of mozzarella cheese was a dollar extra on top of the regular price.
Tuna Mayo Kimbap | B$4.00
This is how the Tuna Mayo Kimbap looked on the inside. I loved how packed and generous they were with the ingredients. Extra mayonnaise were squeezed onto the top of the Kimbap with toasted white sesame seeds as garnish. Sister and I wanted to try their Salmon Kimbap but it wasn’t available. Hopefully, Salmon Kimbap will be available the next time I visit them again.
Vegetarian Bibimbap | B$6.00
Brukori has two prices for their Bibimbap. They can be served either hot or cold. It would be a dollar extra if served hot as all ingredients will be cooked over a hot stone bowl. I had their Tuna Bibimbap on my previous visit and I found the Gochujang paste to be on the sweeter side. However, the Gochujang paste was spicy this time round but addictive!
My way of eating Bibimbap is to toss in most of the Banchan dishes provided especially preserved Kimchi and radish. The juice from the preserved Kimchi or radish will further enhance the flavor of the Bibimbap. Brukori is currently serving salted anchovies as one of their Banchan. I didn’t add that into my Bibimbap as the saltiness would affect the overall taste of the Bibimbap.
