Tanjong Pagar—also known as Korea Town in Singapore—has no lack of Korean restaurants and you may be lost on where to start.
But if you are looking at an all-you-can-eat buffet option for K-BBQ, then Sin Manbok is one to go to. At S$29++per pax, you get unlimited portions of meat, two pieces of Korean fried chicken (for each diner) in your preferred flavour, a Korean stew to share, a side of tteokbokki and ramyeon, and another side of Korean pancake. Do note that the buffet option is only available during lunch.
People will find any occasion to celebrate—that’s just how it is nowadays. Whether it’s a pay raise, a relationship ‘monthsary’ or even if you’re just feeling a tad happier for no apparent reason, there is always a reason to #treatyourself.
But celebrations aside, let’s not forget that money doesn’t grow on trees, and having yourself fancy dinners on a regular basis is probably not the most ideal. But that’s not to say that you can’t still enjoy yourself a feast every now and then.
From hot pot to barbecue buffets and even Japanese buffets that see endless servings of fresh sashimi, here is our list to 10 student-priced buffets that are perfect for the occasional treat.
We always believe that the best way to barbecue meat is over charcoal. It gives it that subtle hint of smokiness that elevates its overall flavour. Wang Dae Bak has long been our go-to for a seriously good Korean BBQ meal and until this day, it is still one of our top choices when we’re craving Korean barbecue.
Most Korean BBQ places in Singapore use an electric grill where the heat can be adjusted accordingly. However, Wang Dae Bak prefers to use charcoal instead and we absolutely love it. This gives our meats a nice char and a delightful taste that far exceeds that of cooking on an electric grill.
Wang Dae Bak has been around for years but they still garner a huge crowd and snaking queues, especially during peak hours. Call ahead to reserve a seat if you want to skip the long wait. Here’s what we love about Wang Dae Bak Korean BBQ Restaurant.
