The highly anticipated SEORAE Galmaegisal take grilled meats to new heights by presenting Galmaegisal, a pork skirt meat that said to have been served exclusively to the Royal Family of Korea in ancient times.
Started as a local player in Korea’s food service business in 2007, SEORAE Galmaegisal has grown globally to present 264 franchise restaurants in international markets like Shanghai, Beijing, Hong Kong, Tokyo, Jakarta, Bandung and recently opened its inaugural Singapore outlet at Plaza Singapura.
Korean barbecue at the table is all the rage in Singapore, so what makes SEORAE different from the others?
For first time in Singapore, SEORAE is bringing the local appetite the signature Korean galmaegisal, which is found between the ribs and the belly of the pig and is a unique premium cut that forms only 250 grams of every full-grown pig.
Using SEORAE’s special ‘circle grilling’ technique, the galmaegisal, marinated in a delicious blend of Korean spices, is grilled to perfection; full of rich flavours, tender and juicy, the taste of galmaegisal resembles that of wagyu beef. Amp up the flavour of the galmaegisal using the well-known Korean dipping style into onion and spicy sauces, accompanied with silky folds of egg and fragrant garlic.
To bring diners on an even more exciting culinary adventure, SEORAE offers melted cheese on the grill as well, combining mouth-watering textures and creamy cheese into a burst of flavour on the taste buds.
Prices start at $21.90 for the galmaegisal with spicy and garlic soya options.
