i wrote in another review about how much i love ajumma’s so i won’t go too much into my love for it here.

- crispy samgyeopsal with scrambled egg on rice: delicious!! elaborated in another post so won’t do it again

- kimchi pancake: was a little oily but i liked that there was a distinct sour-spiciness of the kimchi that you could taste through the pancake

- army stew: also a very classic dish that never goes wrong, with baked beans, spam, hotdog, vegetables, kimchi, enoki and maggie. i however prefer the kimchi pork stew!

When the craving for Korean cuisine hits, I find myself heading down to @ajummasg these days. All of their mains (bar one) are under twenty dollars, and they are quite massive meals on their own. I’ve had my eyes firmly fixed on their Crispy Samgyeopsal with Creamy Scrambled Eggs & Soy-Yujia Sauce ($15.90++) for a while, and I finally got myself a bowl of this long anticipated dish.⠀

For possibly the first time ever, the picture on the menu sold this dish short as the portion was gargantuan! Colossal cuts of pork belly (samgyeopsal) roast are mustered in orderly rows on a firmament of scrambled eggs over white rice, garnished simply with shredded seaweed & drizzles of that soy-yujia sauce. It’s a simple dish of just five elements, but it’s primally satisfying. The savoury roast pork boasts a colossally crunchy rind, and the meat is fairly juicy and well seasoned. The scrambled eggs are a little unevenly cooked, with some parts being more omelette than scrambled egg, but there’s nothing particularly egregious about the egg.⠀

The pork belly isn’t the most tender, and compounded with the tremendous thickness of each slice, the samgyeopsal can become a bit of a jaw workout. Still, it is far from being a dealbreaker, and the flavour of the roast pork belly will keep you powering through. At the end of the day, Ajumma’s doesn’t have the most stunning Korean fare out there, but they certainly maximise the return on your modest investment, and they’ll satisfy even the most avaricious of appetites.

pretty much have every korean dish in their menu👍 Got their Kkal Guksu with Pork Bone Broth with fish cake 🐟 - was really surprised that it taste really similar to the one i had in Seoul 😮💕 the broth is light but flavourful and the knife cut noodles have both bite and slurp satisfaction 💯

💡: definitely one of my top lunch spot option now 😊👍 come during off peak 3-5pm for $9.90 meal‼️

It’s nearly impossible to go wrong with anything kimchi, and @ajummasg Kimchi Pork Stew ($15.90++) is more proof of that. Ajumma’s has been around since 2014, but it’s only recently, when they opened shop in PLQ Mall, that I’ve sampled their food.⠀

Like the restaurant’s name suggests, this Kimchi Pork Stew feels & tastes like your favourite kindly aunt cooked this for you in her kitchen. A vibrant spicy & sour kimchi infused pork broth conceals its bounty of sliced pork belly, tofu, mushrooms and more kimchi. Ajumma’s really puts in effort to make that sixteen-ish bucks feel worth it by loading a copious portion of pork belly & tofu into the soup, plus you get four different but equally tasty banchan (side dishes).⠀

The kimchi infused pork broth was the only source of flavour for everything in the screaming hot bowl, and this is where the broth shines. The combination of the robust, thick pork broth and the spicy & sour kimchi results in a deep, multilayered and incredibly satisfying stew. The kimchi pork broth is salty, sour, slightly spicy and it stimulates appetites like nothing else. Better yet, it has more than enough flavours to donate to the pork belly, tofu and other veg floating in it and to spare. Even if you aren’t hungry, you will find yourself compelled to drain every last drop of it. Come to think of it, the Kimchi Pork Stew would also work wonders as a hangover meal.⠀

Ajumma’s may look like any other fast casual Korean restaurant, but their homely & hearty food feels like a warm hug from grandma.
