What we love most about Don Dae Bak Korean BBQ is that the Korean restaurant uses charcoal grill instead of the usual gasoline grill. That sure makes a lot of difference to our meats!
If there was any good reason at all for someone to forgo their diet plans and let loose, it would be at an all-you-can-eat Korean barbecue restaurant. All-you-can-eat Korean barbecue is probably the most popular form of Korean barbecue there is.
What’s not to love? With unlimited servings (and varieties of cuts) of marinated beef, pork and chicken and a whole array of side dishes and mains to choose from, all at one affordable price point, even gym junkies with the strictest diets are bound to cave every once in a while— but do you know how to make the most of it?
Yet, more often than not, we find ourselves paying a lot more and eating a lot less than what we originally intended. We all get how frustrating that feels but don’t worry, because there’s an explanation for it. Here, we give you the lowdown on how to hack all-you-can-eat Korean barbecues.
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.
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.
Korean BBQ restaurants are, without a doubt, abundant in Singapore and the vast options cater to different needs—whether you are after something easy on the pockets or really looking to indulge in quality meats.
Some days, cheap Korean BBQ restaurants just don’t cut it (although prices are insanely attractive) because honestly, nothing beats having your meat grilled over charcoal; it is the most authentic way of having Korean BBQ and not to mention that heavenly smoky and charred flavour on the succulent meat.
