냉면 on a hot day is the best. The price though... 🤔
(Have been mega bz at work, promise to upload more!!)

Bornga's Yeo-San Tteokgalbi was definitely the surprisingly superb dish of the dinner. Made out of chopped beef meticulously mixed in with Korean rice cake and grilled to perfection, it's soft and tender to the bite. While it's a little overly salty on it's own, the mayonnaise-ish sauce served on the side magically removes the salty edge and plasters it over with its smooth, creamy texture that is guaranteed to tantalize the tastebuds. Best savored with a bowl of steaming hot white rice.


It's rare that I prefer pork over beef when it comes to barbecued meats, but this pork belly marinated in Bornga's special soy sauce was downright delicious, especially when compared to the lackluster beef. It's tender, bursting with flavor, and it has no off putting porky odor. The only blip was that we forgot to ask the server to cook the skin thoroughly as well, resulting in delicious, tender pork that had a chewy, tough rind that was out of place on the otherwise outstanding piece of porcine.


A meal for 2 pax, from this highly acclaimed franchise hailed from Korea. And the outcome, would be this generic, banking on the Korean craze standard of food. The portion although told by the server that it was meant for two, I think they meant for two mouses (I bet mouses ate more). The sides, well I have to comment that they were on point, and rarely anyone serve acorn jelly! So that was a small hurray for me. The pork belly, were like bacon-thin, thus making me feel a tad cheated. The side main of kimchi jjigae, was little thinner, but using pork ribs gives the jjigae a good meaty flavour broth. Thankfully the lunch deal, was reasonable. But I am sure with this price tag, you can get better food anywhere else.


Our only intention was to try out tteokgalbi on the island and we finally had our first at Bornga after talking and planning about it for so long. Truth be told, Bornga has THE BEST tteokgalbi and haemul pajeon! Now I can understand the price rationale behind these dishes. Worth every single penny spent on these two. I can't wait to go back again for another round of tteokgalbi. Serious shit here. Not kidding. Definitely beats away my season finale GOT blues.


This dipping sauce reminds me of a saltier version of "dou jiang" that Chinese use for our "zha jiang mian". This special sauce is what makes Bornga stand out from the rest of the Korean BBQ restaurants in Singapore (if only it's slightly less saltish!) 😋😍
