This was a lunch outing with colleagues at Ju Shin Jung along West Coast Highway. Someone in our lunch group wanted to have Korean. That someone was actually thinking of Banchans rather than having the main meals.
We somehow thought of Ju Shin Jung that we all have not gone together as a group for some time. We all hop into a colleague’s MPV and off we went for lunch.
The moment all the banchans came out, all of us, (especially the guy who was thinking of banchans) was so happy!
We were also served some pumpkin paste/mousse that was quite sweet tasting.
All of us settled for our own portions of the set lunch that’s quite affordable.
Everyone thought we wanted some extra meat, so we ordered a spicy chicken on hot plate. It’s spicy but very shiok to eat! What was interesting is that they had raisins on the chicken.
A few of us had the Saba Fish set.
Crispy fish on a bed of shredded cabbage. I could eat up everything because it was nice and crispy.
If you have been colleague for so long, you can actually guess what others will be eating. We all guess the Short Rib Beef Soup for ‘old cat’. We were right. He ordered this and he says it used to be better but it’s still good.
A few colleagues also had the dolsot bibimbap.
Prepare to sweat it out, because as you eat, you feel the heat from the stone. Our colleague eating this was sweating!
Don’t put all the chilli paste in if you don’t want to suffer the consequences of spiciness. It would be double heat. From the chilli paste and the hot stone.
The soup for those who did not order soup dishes. We did not like it. We prefer the beef rib soup that we ‘helped ourselves’ from ‘old cat’. LOL
When we are with colleagues, we always behave like kids. We love to play with this.
The expandable hand tower. Add some water and it expands. The middle one had a few drops of water and it expanded.
Yup, parents with kids will save theirs to bring back and amuse their kids. I am sure we all have loving parents as colleagues who have to think of ways to entertain their kids 24×7!
Our meal ended with heart-shape watermelons.
It was a nice re-visit to Ju Shin Jung during lunch time.
The food’s still good, service during lunch time was good too, still adequately staffed so you don’t need to wait long for someone to get to you. Most of all, the lunch pricing of set meals less than $15 is still making us happy.
