If you are a big fan of Korean BBQ (like me), but haven’t been able to enjoy Korean BBQ since having a kid (because it’s really not easy having Korean BBQ with a baby in tow), Ju Shin Jung is the place to go!
I was there recently with my family to celebrate my niece’s 3 year old birthday… I wasn’t sure why my sister chose Korean BBQ when we had 3 kids (ages <1 year, 1.5 year and 3 year) around.. Until I arrived. Firstly, we had a tatami seating, and my 1.5 year old nephew was fast asleep on one of the cushions, and MF had a great time walking around the platform (I think he was just thrilled that he need not be confined to a high chair). But what was really good about this place was that it had a playground!
The family members took turns to be babysitter of the three kids at the play area, so that the rest could relax and enjoy their meal when we were not on duty. Anyway we had the tatami seat right next to the play area which offered a good view of the play area. My older niece and nephew would come to the glass and bang on it once in a while to get our attention.. It was kinda fun for them. So if you are there as a big group with kids, you may want to reserve that table in advance.
Right in the centre of the play area was a castle structure… Nice.
There are some chairs inside the castle, but I’m not sure why kids would want to sit there when there are stuff around to play.
At the play area, there are two ball pits, one with more balls, the other with less balls but with a slide.
There are also two of those bead chasers around and a wagon (which MF and his cousin fought for.. MF lost and was ran over by the wagon.. bah… Boys.)
Outside the play area, there is a row of kiddy rides.
I thoroughly enjoyed myself at Ju Shin Jung. The food was not fantastic. In fact, I think I can make better bibimbap. But to be able to savour Korean BBQ while MF keeps himself well-entertained at the playground, I’ll be glad to travel all the way down from Yishun to visit this place again!
PS: I’m told that this place is PACKED during dinner times, so make sure you call to reserve a seat in advance.
