One casual Korean eatery in the Dhoby Ghaut area where you can get Korea homestyle cooking minus the frills (and service charge) is Ajumma’s.
Hidden at a corner of The Cathay’s basement, we got to know of this place by word-of-mouth recommendations. Diners can find many classic Korean main dishes that are below S$10. Have a meal here before or after a movie or pop by during your lunch break.
Beef Bulgogi (S$8.90+) set comes with plump white rice and an assortment of small side dishes served in plastic containers. The marinated grilled beef was juicy and savoury, best eaten with rice to balance the saltiness.
If you are looking for something simple and comforting, this is what you will get with Ajumma’s Beef Bulgogi.
Our next dish was Kimchi Ramyeon (S$8.90+) which also came with the same side dishes. Hearty eaters will delight in its generous portion of noodles, meat, tofu and vegetables. We found ourselves slurping away the rich kimchi broth which was not too spicy for our taste buds.
Other star dishes to try out at Ajumma’s are Cpicy Chicken Bulgogi (S$8.90+), Grilled Norwegian Mackerel (S$8.50+), Bibimbap (S$11.90+), Oxtail Beef Ramyeon (S$7.90+) and more.
