K-Tower restaurant is inspired by the Korean gastronomical trend: “9 layers of seafood” that has been the hit for quite some time. Singapore has quickly followed suit, now with K-Tower featuring 3, 5, 7, and 9 tiers of seafood tower as well as a number of other Korean delicacies. The restaurant uses seafood fresh from the tank, to ensure quality and to retain the food’s juiciness. K-Tower is essentially a food haven for seafood and shellfish lovers!
Menu and Pricing:
- 9-TIER SEAFOOD TOWER
Behold, the magnificent tower of steamed seafood, all 9 layers stacked up and served to your table. The 9 layers consists of (in no order):
- Canadian Oysters
- Mussels & Clams
- Australian Abalone & Sea Cucumbers
- Boston Lobsters
- Sri Lankan Crabs
- choice of soup for the last layer – seafood soup base, kimchi soup base (+$10), ginseng chicken soup (+$20) or budae jjigae (army stew)(+$10)
Add-ons: abalone for $90.
Other variants of seafood tower include:
3-tier ($58.00): prawn, scallop and soup
5-tier ($128.00): prawn, scallop, oyster, fish, sea cucumber and soup
7-tier ($198.00): prawn, scallop, oyster, shellfish, fish, lobster and soup
There is even an option to build your own tower!
Each seafood item is strategically placed so that the bottom most seafood layer (crabs) requires a longer cooking time and a higher temperature, whereas the topmost layer (prawns) require the least. Also, being stacked as a tower allows the essence of each layer of seafood to trickle down and mix with last layer, enriching the flavours of the army soup. You can order additional add-ons such as veggies, meat, fishballs, tofu, ricecake, noodles and many more for your soup.
- SHAKE SHAKE RICE BOX
