“Expanded menu with more rice balls and signature stews”
One of my favourite Korean restaurants with their legendary DIY balls has introduced new flavours for their rice balls, stews and side dishes! Masizzim always stays close in my heart, because it is only 5 minutes away from workplace and I always enjoy rolling those balls with colleagues and friends.
Beyond their existing Anchovy and Tuna options, now you can have Crab Meat & Roe Rice Ball ($10.80) with snow crab meat, shrimp roe, their distinctive medium-grain white rice mixed with Korean black rice and barley, seaweed crumbs, crushed chilli padi and furikake. Anything with furikake is always awesome, adding on to the crunch and overall palate. The amount of crabmeat was generous, and you could enjoy the freshness of the crabmeat with every bite.
Masizzim seems to be more adventurous with their soups and stews, offering more spicy options beyond their existing signature beef, pork and chicken stews. The Kimchi Beef Rib Soup ($16.80) came with a fixed level of spiciness, but manageable in my opinion (my tolerance is average). You could find kimchi, glass noodles, beef ribs, radish and egg that is cracked directly into the soup, so it is definitely a good comfort food for kimchi soup lovers!
If you are a fan of their signature beef stew with customizable level of spice, now you can enjoy their Spicy Seafood Beef Stew ($38.80) with the best of both world – Seafood and Beef Ribs! The variety of seafood was scrumptious, with crayfish, prawns, a whole squid and mussels, together with the never-ever disappointing tender and soft Australian beef short ribs and QQ topokki. This is definitely good for 2 to 4 to share, and you can select from 4 level of spice and it comes with either glass noodles or Korean Udon.
Fret not if you are not a beef-lover, for they also have Spicy Seafood Stew ($36.80) with squid, mussels, prawns and crayfish. It is similar as the above, though without the beef ribs. Again, you can select from 4 level of spice and it comes with either glass noodles or Korean Udon. The soup was a goodness of clam broth, and you can find tonnes of baby clams right at the bottom! If you are a seafood lover, the richness of the soup will be lip smacking for you.
They have launched the sizzling Spicy Pork ($14.80) as an additional side dish, with marinated pork belly stir-fried with carrots, onions, sesame seed and Masizzim’s special sweet and spicy sauce. You know this is the kind of dish that you should order a bowl of rice to go with. While it is spicy, it is not a killer as the sweet sauce helps to curb it. Ain’t too fatty either!
Saw this all over Instagram, because it is so IG-worthy! Featuring the all-time comforting Honey Mustard Cheese Egg Roll ($9.80) with rolled omelette oozing with melted mozzarella and cheddar cheese, and drizzled with honey mustard. The rolled omelette was fluffy and soft, and the gooey cheese was simply irresistible. A common and simple item, yet done uncommonly well!
Another rolled omelette was Tuna Seafood Egg Roll ($10.80), which reminds me of sushi without the rice. So in this case, the egg replaced the rice and it was stuffed with seaweed and tomato-flavoured tuna flakes. Refreshing concept as well that reminds me of home!
Complete your meal with their Slush Beer ($13.80) or Honey Slush Beer ($15.80) where the beer comes with swirl of ice-blended beer, similar to Slurpee from 7-11. Best if you add on honey, so that you can use your mouth to lick the ice off with sweet honey before slurping the beer away.
For non-alcoholic lovers, you can also enjoy their Grapefruit Yogurt ($14.80) with thirst-quenching grapefruit juice and healthy yogurt. If not, you can add $4 to add a shot of Soju!
