I have always enjoyed dining at Masizzim, be it in Singapore or Korea. After Masizzim debuted in Singapore, it has continually drawn crowds because of its substantial and wholesome stews, and fun DIY rice balls. Now, it has expanded its menu to include more dishes, both traditional and modern.
To start off our dinner, we started with two types of drinks: Honey Slush Beer ($15.80) and Grapefruit Yoghurt ($14.80 non-alcoholic; $18.80 with soju). The beer came with a nice swirl of ice-blended beer and drizzle of premium honey. I preferred the second drink which was sweet and tangy.
Good news to those who love Masizzim’s signature DIY rice balls! They have launched a new rice ball dish called Crab Meat & Roe Rice Ball ($10.80), and now you can have your rice balls with snow crabmeat and ebiko (shrimp roe)!
Next, we had the Kimchi Beef Rib Soup ($16.80). The kimchi jjigae (fermented cabbage stew) is a Korean household staple, and it is no wonder that Masizzim has decided to incorporate it into its menu. The beef is very tender, and the soup is spicy and hearty. This will definitely be a satisfying dish on a rainy day.
Two new dishes available only in sharing or double-sized portions are the Spicy Seafood Stew ($36.80) and Spicy Seafood Beef Stew ($38.80). The bowls are filled with a clam-based broth and lots of seafood such as prawns, mussels and a whole squid.
The difference between the stews is the additional ingredient. For the seafood stew, you have a crayfish, and you get tender chunks of Australian beef short ribs in the beef stew. The meaty flavour is more pronounced in the latter, and in my opinion, you can kill two birds with one stone by getting the best of both worlds.
We moved on to some sides like Spicy Pork ($14.80). This was quite heavy for me, especially after having three types of stews. The pork was well-marinated and stir-fried with carrots, onions, sesame seeds and Masizzim’s special sweet and spicy sauce.
We had the Tuna Seaweed Egg Roll ($10.80) and Honey Mustard Egg Roll ($9.80) and my loyalties lie with the honey mustard one. The fishy flavour of the tuna just does not seem to meld properly with the egg. On the other hand, the honey mustard was awesome with gooey mozzarella and cheddar oozing out of it.
