With so many Korean food places popping up all over Singapore, we can safely say that the Korean wave is not losing its popularity in this city anytime soon. Apart from the usual K-bbq and bibimbap, a rather underrated Korean dish called jjimdak deserves to be glorified too. The words ‘jjim’ refers to ‘braise’ and ‘dak’ refers to chicken, and a Korean jjimdak is really a tasty chicken stew braised in soya sauce and is usually slightly sweet.
Located in City Square Mall, Seoul Jjimdak is a Korean restaurant that specialises in authentic Jjimdak, and it is one of the very few destinations in Singapore where you get to savour this hearty Korean stew. The best part? Prices are wallet-friendly, portions are generous and needless to say – the food is legit and authentic!
From now till 31 August 2016, Seoul Jjimdak is extending an exclusive 51%* off Jjimdak and Budae Jjigae (Korean Army Stew) during lunch every day. All you have to do is flash this article or quote ‘ladyironchef’ to Seoul Jjimdak’s staff.
After the promotion, you can get the Jjimdak and/ or Budae Jjigae at only S$16.60++ (U.P. S$33.90++). Now, surely you know this is a deal not to be missed.
Korean BBQ Buffets is considered a past time to us; well, awesome socialising activity while stuffing ourselves silly, if you insist. Having Korean BBQ is more of an activity rather than just having a meal because you usually cook the meats and seafood yourself while chatting with friends; and then, everyone enjoys and have fun together.
Cooking up a delicious meal full of marinated meats and seafood a la minute can only be a good thing – even better when it is a buffet, so you can have them all free flow!
Here are the Best Korean BBQ Buffet Restaurants in Singapore that we love. #FoodForTheSeoul!
I’m Kim Korean BBQ is a Korean buffet restaurant at the Singapore School Of The Arts (SOTA). The concept of the restaurant is pretty straightforward – pick from a selection of cooked food, soups, condiments, meats, drinks and more.
They have two services – one for lunch and one for dinner. The lunch service starts from S$14++ and the dinner service starts from S$22.90++. The lunch offerings is pretty similar to the night service, with the exception of a few meats and cooked dishes.
It is precisely the price and the extensive fare that will keep you going back.
There are way too many Korean BBQ restaurants in Singapore, and one that we tried lately and had a good dinner at is Don Dea Bak Korean BBQ at Kreta Ayer Road.
What we love most about Don Dae Bak Korean BBQ is that the restaurant uses charcoal grill instead of the usual gasoline grill. That sure makes a lot of difference to our meats!
As its name suggests, Chicken Clinic at Upper Thomson is a hospital-themed eatery specialising in Korean Fried Chicken. It is the only Korean restaurant in Singapore utilising surgical equipments in its fried chicken presentation.
Sure, they might be a tad too gimmicky, but our cameras love them.
Korean fried chickens are all the rage right now, but Chicken Clinic has cleverly stood out from other competitors with its unique display of injection syringes, metal trays and medical tweezers. While they may not serve up the best Korean fried chicken, it is still something you might want to check out when you are next at Thomson.
