Get your fix of Korean barbecued meats at the second E!ght Korean BBQ restaurant in Shaw Centre.
At the new outlet, check out the Big Hog Plate ($45), a 360g slab of Hungarian Mangalica pork belly. It is cubed and tossed on the grill with thickly sliced onions and king oyster mushrooms. The dish is served with grilled mugwort rice cake and honey on the side.
There is also the signature Chul Pan (speciality hot grill, minimum order of two portions of meat: $15 for chicken; $16 for pork belly; and $18 for beef), thinly sliced meats stir-fried with vegetables.
For big groups, pick the sets ($58 to $98) featuring grilled Mangalica pork items. The signature 8 Colours Set ($98, for three to four people, photo 1) includes thick-cut Hungarian pork belly marinated in eight flavours. The sets come with house-made kimchi and beansprouts as well as a choice of stew: beef kimchi, seafood bean paste, pork belly kimchi or sardine kimchi. Add $6 for seafood soft tofu or army stew.
Pair your meal with the new organic honey makgeolli (fermented Korean rice wine, $35) and bokbunja (Korean raspberry wine, $35).
