Dinner @ Superstar K

September 24, 2016 in Korean by thywhaleliciousfay

My crossfitters decided to have Korean BBQ for dinner. And of the 5 places I suggested for us to try, they decided to go with Superstar K. We were box-hopping that day, and it was within walking distance. Unfortunately, Superstar K don’t accept reservation.

So once our (crossfit) class ended at 8pm, we made our way over to the restaurant. And to put ourselves on the waiting list, there was a clipboard hung at the entrance. But we were lucky we didn’t have to wait long cause there was an empty table. Just by the entrance! =)


Seats were in the form of bins with removable cushion seats. So yes! One could put one’s belonging inside to prevent it from smelling. And I always felt it’s a brilliant idea cause it’s space saving too. Ha.

And from the menu (pages 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6), we ordered:-

1) Steam egg, $5 (above)

2) Steam dumpling (kimchi), $4.80 (5 pcs) (above) – But do be careful cause we were told by the staff the kimchi dumplings may contain some meat (pork). We asked cause we had a vegetarian among us.

3) Spicy chicken feet, $13 (above) – Give this a miss. There was barely any meat on the chicken feet, and it was way too spicy! But if one must try, please eat this when it’s still hot. As we ordered lots of dishes, this got neglected when the other dishes came in. So when we re-attempted to finish the remaining chicken feet, it was really awful; Cold and tough.

4) Kimchi stew (pork), $13 (above)

5) Seafood pancake, $26 (above) – I liked this! Pretty good!

6) Kimchi pancake, $20 (above)

7) Cold noodle, $18 (above) – And because buckwheat is used to make the noodles, it’s actually a clean dish since buckwheat is not refined flour. So these days, when I have my Korean BBQ, I would end it with a bowl of cold noodles. Something which I picked up from my Korea holiday! And of course, I had to educate my crossfitter (2 of us were sharing the bowl of cold noodle) that the noodle should be enjoyed by slurping it up. However, the kitchen staff must have cut the noodles before serving it to us. =( I wanted to play tug-of-war with my noodles (since buckwheat noodle can be pretty stretchy). Ha!


8) BBQ (above) with meat options of:

(A) Beef ribs, $29 (above) – I don’t take beef but my crossfitters do. And they preferred this over the king sized beef ribs as this tasted more natural.

(B) King sized beef ribs, $39 (above) – This was feedback to be sweet.

(C) Black pork belly, $29 (above)

(D) Salted pork neck, $19 (above)


(E) Sliced pork belly, $19 (above)

(F) Beef decker, $29 (above)

Will I recommend Superstar K? A definite yes. Although I have to add that the awesome company of my crossfitters added to my enjoyable dining experience. =)

We ordered so much that it was as though the staff who was helping out with the grilling of our food was assigned full time to our table. Haha. But we really appreciated the assistance with the grilling! Cause frankly, we would most likely have messed it up by over-grilling the meat. And I liked that they would use wire mesh or steel plate according to the different meats.
