Opened in November 2014, this is not just “one of the Korean restaurants at Suntec” but a Korean restaurant that sells authentic and hearty Korean food specializing in jeongals and Korean fried chicken. Why authentic? For starters, the executive chef, Chef Choi Minchul, is Korean. Furthermore, it ensures that all meat and vegetables served are top-quality and of course, its homemade noodles. While other Korean restaurants use ready-made noodles, Guksu takes pride in its homemade noodles. The noodles comes with three different types of thickness: So Meon (thin), Jung Meon (normal), and Kal Guksu (thick).
Everyone’s beloved Jjajang Meon ($14.90) is also served at Guksu! You can mix the homemade noodles with Korean black bean paste, pork belly, cucumber, green peas, onion and the egg in order to taste the Jjajang Meon Koreans all know and love. As I prefer to not have too much Korean black bean paste in my noodles, I’m glad they didn’t mix it for me first like most places would. Nevertheless, this is definitely worth a try!
This piping hot dish is the Chix Octopus (Hanguk Mini Platters) ($15.90) which tastes as good as it looks. I love how the deep fried boneless chicken and long-legged octopus rests on a hot plate filled with good ol’ cheese and it even comes with a bowl of rice. The taste is mouth-watering and I can’t deny this dish has go to be one of my favourites! You can dip the fried chicken and octopus on the spicy Korean cheese sauce for extra flavour, and also because it’s cheese!
This Hae Shin Tang ($59.90) is not for the faint-hearted! Its giant long-legged octopus might give you a scare (well, it scared me!) but definitely a treat for octopus-lovers! It comes with the nourishing and fragrant ginseng chicken soup along with abalone, prawn and vegetables.
Need some wings for sharing? Try this Assorted Wings Platter ($31.90) which comes with mashed potato and fruit pickles. This platter comes with 4 very different-flavoured chicken wings: Classic, Soy, Spicy and Wasabi! These wings are not only crispy, their interesting flavours gives it a burst of flavour. Let me tell you, all of these wings are tasty in their own unique ways, so be adventurous and try them all!
This cheesy delight is sure to tantalise your taste buds! The Cheese Kalbi Gui Platter ($48) serves Korean roasted sweet soy flavoured pork ribs with creamy mozzarella cheese in the middle, egg, soup, as well as sweet corn as on the side.There’s just so many things to try in this hot plate, I was spoilt for choice! I recommend you to wrap as much cheese as possible around the pork ribs for that salty and savoury flavour that just melts in your mouth!
If you are up for a Korean Pancake, try Kimchi Jeon ($12.90) which is actually Kimchi Pancake, that is both savoury and spicy!
This dish is not for everyone! If you are a fan of creamy soup and cold noodles, you can give Kong Guksu ($14.90) a try which consists of white bean puree, homemade noodles, cucumber, tomato and an egg.
Kalguksu, which means knife-cut noodles, are homemade noodles that are thin and flat. This bowl of Basirak Kalguksu ($14.90) comes with clams as well as clam soup with vegetables, which tastes refreshingly tasty with the mellow seafood taste and and bouncy noodles.
