Indulged in these dishes a bazillion times a week some months ago in the name of work; now, I'm missing them very much, especially the kimchi soup that's given an added depth of flavour with Masizzim's beef rib stew sauce.
The pancake tasted like a pan fried, denser version of a tomato based- mozzarella cheese pizza. Of course with Korean ingredients- kimchi and tiny anchovies (that you could easily miss).
The egg rolls were delightful- with a faultless combination of melted cheese with honey mustard atop 😋
Aside from the killer stews, I really enjoyed the honey mustard cheese egg roll ($9.80) My personal favorite amongst the 2 egg rolls offered, this was egg as thick as a Christmas log stuffed with melty cheese and laced with sweet honey mustard.
The flavours were generally milder which were a nice contrast to the intensity of the stews, providing a nice balance to the meal.
Side note: I really like how you can call a service staff to your table by pressing that white button instead of frantically waving to no avail.
Having this Jjim (stew)on a cold day really hits you in the comfort zone. The pipping hot beef stew from Masizzim is packed with succulent, slightly oversized beef cubes mixed with the glass noodles in the thick beef stew. For an additional $7, you can change the rice provided into their awesome DIY handmade rice ball from their menu, which I really recommend if you are visiting Masizzim.
Ordered this to share with a Friend who cancelled last minute. And you know what, the loss is all his.
Beef stew was hearty and broth was delicious! My brother wasn't feeling well so we opted for the miso broth, no spice. The egg roll was gooey cheesey deliciousness! Couldn't really taste the honey element though😂
We upgraded to tuna and anchovy riceballs as well- I prefer tuna as the anchovy is too crunchy-I lile my riceball to be soft and plus they tuna had mayo which was a total plus point!
We ordered the grapefruit yogurt drink to share and it was really refreshing; it has an icy texture which reminds me of slurpee! The grapefruit atop was a nice decoration.
Tuna Seaweed Egg Roll ($10.80).
Though the Honey Mustard Cheese Egg Roll will always be my first love, the Tuna Seaweed Egg Roll is a good option as well. A fluffy omelette roll stuffed with tuna flakes, seaweed and drizzled with tomato sauce.
This was better than the crab & roe version. A sprinkle of sesame seeds, a bed of shredded seaweed, a side of kimchi, a helping of tuna and a dollop of mayo! Nice la; how can you go wrong with such a combi! 😜🙂🙂😋
That slight sweetness of the crab meat 😜😝😋 went rather well with the mix of crispy shredded seaweed, a scoop of roe, furikake? And a dollop of mayo! Best part of this was witnessing my friend having so much fun rolling them!
A soft, moist and a tad sweet omelette with stretchy mozarella $9.80 (excl. service charges & gst); anyone can do this at the comfort of his/her own home imo (with the right honey mustard sauce, of course!)
Spicy Korean buckwheat noodles; served slightly cold (on purpose); Taste-wise quite subpar, in fact I found the taste of the sesame oil a lil too overwhelming 😅 nothing 2 special sadly 😪🤐
3 munchies: Filled with seaweed and tuna flakes, these moist and chunky egg rolls were undoubtedly homely and utterly scrumptious. The omelette itself was good enough to be eaten on its own, so I thought it was a tad pity that the tomato sauce and mayonnaise drizzle ruined the dish a little for me. Go for the Honey Mustard Cheese Egg Roll instead if you're a fan of gooey mozzarella and cheddar with some zing!
Finally tried the Honey Mustard Cheese Egg Roll a couple of nights ago! But unfortunately this mixture of mozzarella and cheddar with eggs was a bit too gelat. Still worth a try though :) #burpple
I don't know about you, but imma be Team Anchovy. 😛
4 munchies: Cooked in Masizzim's secret recipe sauce, the new signature Spicy Seafood Stew is loaded with prawns, mussels, crayfish, a whole squid and topokki. Not only the spicy base was packed with umami goodness, there was also an abundance of clams in the clam-based broth to excite both seafood and spicy food lovers like me! The Spicy Seafood Stew is customisable with 4 levels of spice, and Korean udon or glass noodles.
This was a hosted meal by Masizzim; many thanks to Rachel for the warm hospitality and invitation!
