Eee Mo BBQ (이모), Maxwell Road

Eee Mo BBQ (이모), Maxwell Road

Check out those banchan. It's better than what I'm used to getting with the processed food and all. We've walked past Eee Mo (32 Maxwell Road, tel : +65 6509 4173) numerous times (what's new at this point eh?) and finally came to eat.

Back to the banchan. Battered and fried squid legs, pretty solid kimchi that had a good balance of spiciness and sour and some pig terrine thing where I saw ears - just to name some. Not bad at all.

Eee Mo BBQ (이모), fried rice

I forgot what this was called but it's a fried rice with beef briskets and kimchi radish. I know, not much can be seen of those kadugi bokkeumbap. The rice was nice and peppery with some beefiness.  It was delicious, I enjoyed it but the portions were unfortunately dismal for $20. For that price, I thought it would have been reasonable to be expecting at least twice those portions. Expensive it was.

Eee Mo BBQ (이모), kongguksu

We were pretty excited that they had kongguksu on the menu so we ordered one. If you didn't know, it's a bowl of chilled wheat noodles in a broth of soy milk. The flavour of that broth was nutty and pretty much how I imagined that it. Don't know if there were other ingredients other than soy beans though. We were given a bit of salt for flavour but at the back of my mind, I couldn't help but think that it would taste better sweet than salty. 

Eee Mo BBQ (이모), bassak bulgogi

That's an order of their bassak bulgogi - a bulgogi variant that is said to originate from Eonyang in Korea. It's a dry variety which I believe was pressed into a pan and fried. Sweet, garlic-ky and savoury. It was a lot lighter than it looked too. Pretty good. At $39, also pretty expensive for the portions.

I heard long term pass holder Koreans do not prefer this restaurant, only some Singaporeans prefer due to its price
