Jjigae Jjigae – Individual Healthy Korean Hotpot(Interesting Soup Bases!)
Jjigae is a popular Korean hotpot which consists of a heartwarming broth, and a variety of ingredients such as vegetables, meat, and seafood. This Korean stew is perfect for friends and family to share and enjoy. At Jjigae Jjigae, you can have a good time with your loved ones, while indulging in healthy dishes.
The Beauty Collagen Jjigae comes in either single or double pot size, and each pot is priced from $12.90 to $28.90. Begin by selecting your collagen soup base from three choices – yuzu salt, doenjang, and kimchi gojuchang. The initial taste of the yuzu salt broth is savoury, but you’ll be surprised by the zesty twist at the end. Simmered for over 16 hours, the signature house-made beauty collagen stock will give you a youthful radiance, energy, and metabolic boost.
Next, choose your meat. We had the Pork Beauty Collagen Jjigae ($12.90 single portion) which comes with paper-thin pork slices, cheddar cheese, cheese cocktail sausages, cheese tofu, napa cabbage, enoki mushrooms, shitake mushrooms, white onion, leek, tau kwa, baked beans, rice cakes, kimchi, and sweet potato starch noodles. The pork slices are tender, and you get a mix of textures in every mouthful.
You can also have fun moulding your very own rice balls. There are 6 flavours ranging from the unique Thunder Fusion rice balls, to luxurious Crab Meat & Roe rice balls, to the more traditional Bulgogi Beef rice balls. The mini portion costs between $5 and $5.50, while the regular portion costs between $9.80 and $10.80. You don’t have to worry about getting your hands dirty, as there are gloves provided.
The Thunder Fusion Rice Balls ($10.80/regular) is the restaurant’s Korean rendition of our Hakka Thunder Tea Rice. Give the medley of ingredients such as long beans, leek, seaweed, brown rice, dried shrimps, fried tau kwa, sweet cai po, and chilli padi, a good toss before rolling them into your desired shapes. It is flavourful, and the sweetness from the sweet cai po balances out the savoury taste of the dish nicely. These rice balls are not too heavy for lunch, and make a delightful meal.
