We love indulging in Korean cuisine, especially Korean barbeques! Unfortunately, Korean food does not come cheap in Singapore, and this reflects even in food courts.
So when one All-You-Can-Eat Korean BBQ comes to mind, one would often think that it is going to be a wallet-damaging meal. Well, you are neither wrong nor are you right.
Korean BBQ Buffet in Singapore is indeed usually expensive, but that’s not the case at Maru Korean BBQ Buffet. The no-frills Korean restaurant is located along the stretch of Cheong Chin Nam Road and only a stone’s throw away from recently opened Beauty World MRT Station. Buffet prices are incredibly affordable and start from S$9++ per child and S$14++ per adult during weekday lunch. What a steal!
Chicken rice is one of the must-eat Singapore Food. Naturally, there are many places serving this popular dish around the island, you can find it in almost every coffee shop and hawker centre.
When it comes to the best chicken rice in Singapore, most people will definitely think of Wee Nan Kee, Tian Tian Hainanese chicken rice, and of course Boon Tong Kee chicken rice.
Is Boon Tong Kee Chicken rice as good as before? Or has the standard dropped since the rapid expansion of the chicken rice chain?
The grass is always greener on the other side. I think this is very true as my food adventures totally reflect this. Even though I stay just 10 minutes away from Bukit Timah, I tend to go further in search of good food in Singapore. Come to think of it, I have never really explore the stretch of restaurants at Cheong Chin Nam road (directly opposite Beauty World).
As I was walking along there last week, I realized that there’s actually quite a few eateries that open till late night, and they are now officially my prime-targets for supper. The chicken rice craving gave us the choice between Five Star Hainanese Chicken Rice and Boon Tong Kee since both of them are arguably famous chicken rice in Singapore.
