Of course at such a price, one does not get the regular serving of Banchan (small side dishes) but instead about 4 varieties (as compared to the usual 8 or 10 varieties) are served in a lunch box together with the Bulgogi and steamed rice in the usual metal bowl. The set also comes with a bowl of seaweed soup and slices of watermelon.
The Bulgogi is cooked differently if it's the set lunch (unlike the usual Bulgogi I have for dinner). At such a price, the portion is still quite a lot albeit it has added cabbage apart from the usual onions to make up the volume. The beef is thinly sliced, tender and well marinated with soy sauce and sugar. The set will definitely fill you up. For those who would like to try cooking this at home, click HERE for the recipe.
So cute, the watermelon in a shape of a Christmas tree.
Once in awhile, we'll order the Kimchi Chigae. It comes piping hot, it's good stuff but I still prefer the Kimchi Chigae from Haeun Khon located on the 3rd Floor of Amcorp Mall. Haeun Khon is usually where I head to when I'm craving for Kimchi Chigae.
If you're around SS2 during lunch hour, do drop by and try out Korea House's reasonable set lunches. They also serve the usual Korean BBQ fare. The Korean lady boss is really friendly, greeting customers with a big smile and always say the same thing to me each time I'm there "Long time no see you!". Hahaha...service is good too ;o).
