Hey guys! So I am finally back after such a long hiatus due to exams - now that it's over you can be excited about all the content I will start to post.
A while back I actually dined at this new Korean restaurant called Massizim which specialises in different sort of Korean stews - slightly heartier than the usual fried chicken and also a little more Korean than the fried chicken stores we see nowadays that have western elements as well.
The portion for $16 is honestly decent and you can see there is a sizeable amount of glass noodle and radish inside. The soup was just the right balance of sweet and salty so it was really good!
Another plus for me is that this comes with a healthy brown rice!
The soup had a lot of flavour and it is definitely a rich broth compared to the clear one before. Personally I really liked this a lot although what I wish was that they gave a bit more broth as towards the end (since there is a fire beneath) the soup was sort of concentrated and there wasn't a whole lot to drink. Still, the ingredients were fresh and this had a refreshing taste.
Overall, the experience at Massizim was great. There are just two side dishes which are refillable - pickled radish and kimchi. The price here is rather steep in my opinion, and it was only a good deal to me because I bought their discounted coupon off of Fave (previously Groupon) which gave me a pretty large saving. The soups were a little sweet for my liking so I don't think I would eat this often.
Another thing to note is that in my opinion this is certainly a place to go for more than a person because the prices might be steep for a single diner - it is much better as a dinner place for sharing aka with at least 2 pax. I went to the Somerset313 outlet which was really quite packed that day so service was rather slow and it was hard to grab the waiter's attention (by no fault of their own - perhaps the management could hire a few more waiters)
But that's all for Massizim! I hope you enjoyed this post. I certainly recommend this place to be tried out at least once because there is something different about coming here compared to other places.
Thank you for reading :)
