But that’s not all, as you can also head to the self-service bar to load up on ice water and refillable banchan like kimchi, vegetables, and dipping sauces, along with a special Side Dish of the day.

Each diner will also get one Marshmallow skewer each, which should be a hit with the young ones (and anyone with a sweet tooth).

Do note that there must be a minimum of two diners in order to opt for the buffet, and that food wastage will be charged at S$2.86 (RM10) per 100g.
