Seoul Garden switches from buffet spreads to a la carte menu

The halal-certified Korean restaurant chain is introducing its new concept on Thursday (Aug 19). 

Seoul Garden switches from buffet spreads to a la carte menu
Seoul Garden will move from buffet spreads to an ala carte menu from Aug 19, 2021.

Heading out for a meal now that we’re finally out of P2HA? The F&B outlets you used to frequent may look slightly different now. 

Take, for instance, Seoul Garden. 

The 38-year-old Korean grill chain has just announced that it will transform its current buffet concept to an all-new a la carte menu from Thursday (Aug 19). 

According to Seoul Garden Group, this move is in line with Singapore’s road map to an endemic COVID-19. After 18 months of changing restrictions, the chain will stop its buffet service so as to ensure a safer and healthier dining environment. 

Instead, diners can expect a brand new a la carte menu serving up similar Korean fare.

The restaurant’s move away from buffet dining also seeks to reduce food waste.

Andrew Lee, Chief Executive Officer of Seoul Garden Group, said that the company has started a "comprehensive training programme for its staff, including its crew of People with Disabilities (PWD), to help them understand and embrace the new dining concept”.
