It is the end of an era as Seoul Garden has permanently stopped its buffet concept from today (Aug. 19).
Instead, the Korean grill restaurant chain has switched to an à la carte menu featuring grilled meats and Korean dishes.
The business, which has seven outlets in Singapore, cites the Covid-19 pandemic as part of its reason for the pivot.
Its media release explained,
"Changes to the rules have understandably needed to be frequent in response to a climate of uncertainty in face of clusters in the community. Seoul Garden’s decision to pivot its dining concept aims to answer this call and was an important consideration in the Group’s adoption of an a la carte dining experience."
The cessation of its buffet menu is also a sustainable way to reduce food waste in the long run, Seoul Garden said.
Previously, weekdays buffets started at S$25++, while weekend buffets cost upwards of S$35++.
