Kko Chi Bar – Auto-Rotating Korean Skewers With A Touch Of Spicy Chinese Flavours

Kko Chi Bar Tanjong Pagar

Walking down Craig Road in Tanjong Pagar, it would be easy to miss the unassuming Kko Chi Bar, a Korean BBQ skewer restaurant. It took us quite awhile to find the restaurant as it was tucked away in a corner with a signboard featuring only Korean words. However, our little adventure to Kko Chi Bar was just so worth it.

The restaurant is run by a Korean owner who spent most of his early life in China, hence the menu has a very distinct Chinese influence. Each table has an interesting auto-rotating BBQ machine where you can simply place the skewers on and the machine rolls each skewer periodically to ensure that the meats and vegetables are cooked evenly.

Lobster Dishes Singapore

Once upon a time before we were born, lobsters were considered food for the poor. There was an abundance of these crustaceans then for nobody bothered to eat them.

Who would have known that such an unwanted seafood could evolve into such a pricey and highly sought-after delicacy? There are many lobster species available in the market and each breed has a different price tag. When cooked fresh, the fresh ones will taste succulent and sweet. Needless to say, the consumption of lobsters today still remains as an expensive affair.
