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.

We then set forth with a mission in search of affordable, no-frills Korean eateries in Singapore where we can satisfy our Korean food cravings without breaking the bank. In this guide, you will find a list of Korean eateries featuring mains that are mostly below S$10.
Tucked away in Sunset Way’s enclave of cafes, eateries and restaurants is Hoho Korean Restaurant, an under-the-radar family eatery in Singapore that serves pretty decent Korean cuisine.

While we are on our journey to find the more affordable Korean eateries in Singapore, there were many hits and misses and we are glad to say that Sunny Korean Cuisine is one of the better ones we have tried so far.
Located in West Coast Plaza, an outlet mall which is a few bus stops away from Clementi MRT Station, Sunny Korean Cuisine offers cheap Korean classic dishes below S$10. READ ON
