Specialising in a variety of authentic Korean fare from its homemade noodles (guksu), Korean fried chicken and even their signature Korean-style hot pot (jeongol), Guksu over at Suntec City is a tribute of all things traditional.
This new-age Korean Restaurant also happens to be the first specialised Jeongol house in Singapore and although their menu boasts mainly stews and noodle dishes—including the highly popular hae shin tang and yuk gae jang meon—their Korean fried chicken wings are a must-try as well.
So round up your squad, whether they may be Korean food enthusiasts or simply your beer-drinking buddies because Guksu is a restaurant worth checking out.
In need of a something to go with your beer? Then be sure to order up a platter of Guksu’s stellar Korean fried chicken. The menu boasts a pretty impressive array of deep-fried options to choose from such as soy, spicy, wasabi and of course the good-old classic but we decided to go with the Snowing Chicken (S$34.90).
Great for sharing among up to 4 people, this mammoth-sized platter sees a long stack of Korean fried chicken wings slathered with a savoury garlic cream and generously topped with their homemade snow powder (essentially a honey butter and garlic mixture).
Striking the right balance between sweet, savoury and crunchy, we can see why this is a crowdpleaser. The dish is served with a side of mashed potato and pickled radish that both do well to cut through the grease and sweetness of the chicken wings.
CHICKEN CHEESE FONDUE
Who doesn’t love nuggets of crunchy fried chicken—or anything for that matter—dunked in bubbling hot cheese? If just the thought of it is enough to get you pumped, then the Cheese Chicken Fondue (S$39.90) is something you must try.
Great for sharing, this sensational dish comes with potato wedges as well and everything is generously topped with their signature snow powder for added flavour.
CHICKEN CHEESE FONDUE CHOCOLATE
For the adventurous, you might also want to try their Cheese Chicken Fondue Chocolate Flavour (S$46.90) that is essentially the same except with the addition of literal chunks of dark chocolate. The idea of chicken and chocolate might take some getting used to, but believe us when we say that the combination works.
BEEF SHORT RIB
Featuring marinated prime beef short ribs, lettuce, rice and another garnishing, the So Kalbi Sal Set (S$28) is essentially a miniaturised version of Korean barbecue.
Marinated for a long period of time, the beef was flavourful inside and out but the real kicker was having the edges caramelise on the grill.
PORK SHORT RIB
Another barbecue item to consider is the Samgyeopsal Set (S$23). Essentially the same line up of ingredients except swapping out the beef short rib for pork belly, this dish offers diners a much more fatty but flavourful experience.
