Talk about the hottest Korean BBQ restaurants in Singapore, and we all think of Super Star K at Tanjong Pagar. The outlet specialises in using charcoal grill for its Korean BBQ, and the authentic dining experience explains its popularity among Singaporeans and tourists alike. Perpetually packed and crowded, dinner might have to come with a little wait, but we will tell you it is going to be worth the while.
I have written previously that Korean-style fried chicken is one of my favourite guilty indulgences, and I am always on the lookout to try new places. If you are also a fan of Korean fried chicken, add Woori Nara Korean Restaurant to your list.
While it is relatively easy to find Korean restaurants in Singapore, it is difficult to find a truly outstanding place that will make you go back again and again to try everything else on the menu that you have not tried. Big Mama Korean Restaurant at Kim Tian Road is one of the few that belongs to this category. The food is generally good, and addictive enough to make you return on a regular basis.
Note: The restaurant is now closed.
When I have cravings for Korean food, I like to go to Crystal Jade Korean BBQ Buffet. Their Nex outlet has a decent buffet spread and you can get the usual marinated meat and fish. The food is nothing fantastic, but it is acceptable for the price (weekdays: $24 nett for lunch, $28 nett for dinner; and weekends: $28 nett for lunch, $32 nett for dinner). There is also a students’ promotion $16.50 nett for lunch buffet on weekdays.

I’m pretty sure that I’ve eaten enough to keep me going till 2012. But somehow it is impossible for me to say no to Korean BBQ.
Ssikkek Korean Grill at Novena Ville is one of the places on my list of Korean BBQ Buffet in Singapore that I’ve always wanted to try. At just $12+ for lunch, and $22+ for dinner, it is one of the cheapest Korean BBQ Buffets in Singapore.
Those around me know that I am a big fan of Korean food. I always crave for Korean food when I watch Korean dramas, and it doesn’t help that the popular variety shows like Running Man always feature yummy looking Korean street food and BBQ.
This post is an extension to my list of Korean Restaurants in Singapore, and it includes more details about the Korean Barbecue buffets restaurants.
Here’s a list of the best Korean BBQ Buffets in Singapore.
At the ground floor of Link Hotel in Tiong Bahru, is Blue Garden Korean BBQ Restaurant. It currently occupies the space which was used by the now-defunct Persimmon Restaurant. Much of the interior remains intact: the black and white tiled floor, and the kopitiam-style furniture.
Korean food lovers will be happy to know that Blue Garden restaurant offers Korean BBQ buffet during lunch ($19.90) and dinner ($26.90).
I was impressed during a recent visit to Crystal Jade Korean Restaurant at Takashimaya. They have pretty good Korean food at affordable prices and it currently ranks highly on my list of Korean Restaurants in Singapore.
I have to admit that I wasn’t a fan of Crystal Jade restaurants initially as I didn’t like restaurant chains. But after several visits to the different Crystal Jade restaurants, it’s not too difficult to understand why they are popular.
