Korean restaurant Seoul Jjimdak in City Square Mall has been in the spotlight lately for introducing authentic Jjimdak and Korean Army Stew that is very tasty and wallet-friendly.
Today we have some fantastic news to share!
If you missed their previous lunch deal, the folks at Seoul Jjimdak have introduced a new special deal for both the Jjimdak and Korean Army Stew – which will be going at only S$23.90++ each. This is a whopping 30% off its usual price of S$36.90++, and they are available daily from 11.30am to 3pm, including weekends and public holidays!
With so many Korean food places popping up all over Singapore, we can safely say that the Korean wave is not losing its popularity in this city anytime soon. Apart from the usual K-bbq and bibimbap, a rather underrated Korean dish called jjimdak deserves to be glorified too. The words ‘jjim’ refers to ‘braise’ and ‘dak’ refers to chicken, and a Korean jjimdak is really a tasty chicken stew braised in soya sauce and is usually slightly sweet.
Located in City Square Mall, Seoul Jjimdak is a Korean restaurant that specialises in authentic Jjimdak, and it is one of the very few destinations in Singapore where you get to savour this hearty Korean stew. The best part? Prices are wallet-friendly, portions are generous and needless to say – the food is legit and authentic!
From now till 31 August 2016, Seoul Jjimdak is extending an exclusive 51%* off Jjimdak and Budae Jjigae (Korean Army Stew) during lunch every day. All you have to do is flash this article or quote ‘ladyironchef’ to Seoul Jjimdak’s staff.
After the promotion, you can get the Jjimdak and/ or Budae Jjigae at only S$16.60++ (U.P. S$33.90++). Now, surely you know this is a deal not to be missed.
There are way too many Korean BBQ restaurants in Singapore, and one that we tried lately and had a good dinner at is Don Dea Bak Korean BBQ at Kreta Ayer Road.
What we love most about Don Dae Bak Korean BBQ is that the restaurant uses charcoal grill instead of the usual gasoline grill. That sure makes a lot of difference to our meats!
If you are exploring the Bras Basah and Bugis districts, you might want to join in the artsy-fartsy crowd and head over to the first container cafe in Singapore – yes, you heard us right! Situated at DECK, Snowy Village offers a noteworthy selection of Bingsu in an unusual container setting. A good dessert never hurts, right?
As its name suggests, Chicken Clinic at Upper Thomson is a hospital-themed eatery specialising in Korean Fried Chicken. It is the only Korean restaurant in Singapore utilising surgical equipments in its fried chicken presentation.
Sure, they might be a tad too gimmicky, but our cameras love them.
Korean fried chickens are all the rage right now, but Chicken Clinic has cleverly stood out from other competitors with its unique display of injection syringes, metal trays and medical tweezers. While they may not serve up the best Korean fried chicken, it is still something you might want to check out when you are next at Thomson.
Samgyetang means Ginseng Chicken Soup and it is one of the most well-loved delicacies to have in South Korea. A warm bowl of Samgyetang is especially comforting in cold weather, and it warms your heart up instantly. If you are planning to visit Seoul soon and haven’t tried Samgyetang, this is a definitely must-try!
If you like Korean BBQ buffet and do not mind paying slightly more, then Han Geun Doo Geun Korean BBQ Buffet Restaurant, an under-the-radar outlet at Chinatown Point, is for you. Well, they may not have the cheapest buffet prices (S$26.90++ for lunch, S$36.90++ for dinner) in town, but hold your horses and do not just strike them off your list yet. Let us tell you why.
Not only does Han Geun Doo Geun serve a selection of decent meats, it also has a buffet station with 12 to 14 banchan (side dishes) that you can stuff yourself silly with. AND, ala carte servings of noodles, bibimbap, topokki, and Korean soups and stews.
Located in the buzzing Serangoon Garden enclave, Hanwoori Korean Restaurant is one of those under-the-radar restaurants that only Korean food lovers in the know and residents will find their way here. The fuss-free outlet may be easily missed from the road, so look out for OCBC Bank and you are on your way to a splendid meal.
