Masizzim Singapore - Customizable Meat Stews That Are The Latest Trend Hits Town!

10:16 PM Cassan 1 Comments

By the same folks that brought Chir Chir Fusion Chicken Factory to Singapore, Masizzim is the newest addition to 313 Somerset, serving a medley of traditional and modern Korean dishes in hearty portions. Using the amalgamation of the words 'Masi' which means delicious and "jjim" which means stew in Korean, it distinguishes itself from the other Korean restaurants with their signature stews - Beef Rib Stew, Pork Rib Stew and the Spicy Chicken Stew. They are also accompanied by side dishes like mix grain Rice Balls and 3 types of savoury pancakes. 

The spacious interior allows patrons to dine in comfort and ease, with wooden furniture and an industrial-themed interior with textured grey walls and dividers of stone encased in wire mesh. Plenty of warm lighting and Korean MVs were also played in the restaurant to mimic the environment of a trendy casual eatery in Seoul.

Here at Masizzim Singapore, every dish is served with the essential Korean side dishes - Kimchi, Lettuce and picked radish.

Anchovy Rice Balls - S$8

Tuna Rice Balls - S$8

At Masizzim, patrons are encouraged to get crafty and get down to making their very own rice balls with the gloves provided. These DIY rice balls come with medium-grain white rice, Korean black rice, barley, seaweed crumbs, crushed chili padi and a choice fo Tuna (with mayonnaise and kimchi) or Anchovy. All you have to do is put on your gloves, mix the ingredients well and mould them into your preferred shape of rice balls! 

My favourite was definitely the Tuna & Kimchi rice balls (pictured above). I'm a huge fan of kimchi and tuna, so that was a clear winner for me. Every bite into the Anchovy rice balls came with a delightful crunch, followed by a slow heat from the Chilli Padi and most of the people on the table enjoyed it as well. On the other hand, I wasn't a fan of the textures as I did not like how the anchovies were sticking into my mouth. 

Signature Stews

The signature stews are available in an individual or double sized portions, with the individual ones weighing 250g and the double ones weighing 500g. The beef rib stew is prepared with Australian beef short ribs, whereas the pork rib stew is prepared with Australian mixed pork ribs and the chicken stew with fresh chicken meat - each slow-cooked for 6 hours so as to reach the intended succulence. The meat are marinated overnight and then slow-cooked in Masizzim's secret proprietary sauce. 

Diners can choose between spicy or non-spicy version for the beef/pork stew. They can then customise by selecting either Korean glass noodles or udon to be added to the stew, or add on cheese (S$2) and Korean rice cakes (S$2) for an extra oomph in your stews. 

The non-spicy flavour comes in an umami blend of soy sauce, pineapples and Korean pear, whereas the spicy base is made with gochujang (red pepper paste). Diners can also choose from the spicy scale of 1-4!

Spicy Chicken Stew - S$16 individual (250g) / S$29 double (500g)

Pork Rib Stew - S$16 individual (250g) / S$29 double (500g)

Beef Rib Stew - S$18 individual (250g) / S$32 double (500g)

My favourite stew of the night was definitely the pork stew that was lip-smackingly good! Each piece of rib was so amazingly tender and the broth was so addictive! We tried the level 1 spiciness for the Spicy Chicken stew and I felt that it was already a little too spicy and for me with its tongue-tingling heat. Beef lovers would also love the beef rib stew as the stew was cooked to a perfect finish - I thoroughly enjoyed the depth that the broth brought. And of course, I couldn't stop reaching for the Korean rice cakes!

Spicy Cheese Fried Rice - S$9

The spicy cheese fried rice is prepared with kimchi and beef rib stew sauce (a point to note for those who do not take beef) and topped with a generous serving of mozzarella cheese. I've heard many times that kimchi goes perfectly with cheese, and never truly believed it until I tried the fried rice at Masizzim. It is cooked in a cast-iron pot so do remember to mix it quick lest it becomes charred at the bottom! 

Steam Egg - S$6

The Korean steam egg is one of the more popular dishes that can be found at most Korean restaurants and like the Spicy Cheese Fried Rice, the steam egg is prepared with beef stock. Nothing really pique my interest about this dish!

Potato Pancake - S$12

The pancakes served at Masizzim came in massive portions, almost identical to that of a 9-inch pizza, if i remembered correctly. The potato pancake is served with their house-blended dipping sauce. I loved the slightly crisp textures of the pancake that were done just right. 

Squid & Leek Pancake - S$14

Out of the two that I've tasted, the squid and leek pancake was my favourite! I'm personally a fan of both squid and leek, so naturally I would side more with this dish. The pancake was fried to an impeccable golden-brown tan and the flavours came together perfectly well.
