Jang Gun specializes in Korean Buffet restaurant. There are more than 200 dishes of dishes ranging from soups Korean, Japanese, Chinese and local dishes. It is quite similar to buffet at Saisaki and Shogun, in that the main differences is the additional Korean Dishes. Price wise, it is quite similar as those in the chain of restaurant.
One of the main additional dishes in Jang Gun is the offering of soup base which you can add to your poached seafood and other condiments (like mushroom and vegetables).
According to the management of Jang Gun, they have a Lady Korean chef that whip up Korean dishes. I gave a try on some of the snacks for example Kim Chi, hard Boiled quail eggs, black beans, lotus roots, eggs rolls, Korean noodles and etc.
The advantage of having a buffet is you get to try a lot of varieties of these offering. It gives you to opportunity to taste these foods which you will not dare to order if it was on an ala-carte basis. I am not a real fan of Korean snack/ appetizer, so to me it was just a so-so experience.
We had a unique experience that night as the management was planning to introduce a new product for their chain of restaurant. They call it squeeze-it – A popular frosty ice product originating from Hokkaido Japan.
It is a cold dessert or rather an ice popsicle but in another form. It looks like a cute little ping pong ball which is frozen. They have to massage the ball. The type of massage, to the ball depends on the preference i.e. whether you want to ice to flush out at a fast rate or slow rate. You can also create an art by controlling the flow of the ice, making a mini mountain or etc depending on your creative style.
The way you eat it, is after cutting a small cut at the tips of the so-called branch. Upon cutting, the frosty ice will shot out continuously. All you do, is continuing sucking the ice from the tip and squeezing the ball as quickly as possible. That is how the name Squeeze it comes from. At the end of the process, you will have a sudden burst of the frosty ice shooting into your mouth. A truly very unique experience.
One of the main selling points is that, this ice flavours are 100% based on the fruits extract not artificial flavouring. There are 11 flavours offering Chocolate, Mango, Strawberry, Wild Berries, Premium Hazelnut Chocolate, Premium Banana, Premium Raspberry, Vanilla, Green Tea, Cherry and Premium Yoghurt.
