The filling is quite a lot, it's very big and nice for sharing, the taste also not bad with bits of crispiness here and there. It's quite thick so the middle and the inside feels a bit mushy tho.

The sauce is not that spicy and more to the sweet side. It's not bad, I just wasn't expecting it to only have tteok and instant noodles with 2 piece of fish cake. It's totally full of carbs.

It's basically rice with furikake and seaweed flakes. I expect korean rice ball, not furikake rice. It's not bad, but for the price it's very disappointing.

Went past the Kopitiam at VivoCity’s basement one day and found this stall named JMT hidden within the food court. Whilst most Korean cuisine stalls within food courts around tend to serve up what they deem to be Japanese-Korean cuisine featuring Korean soups and stews alongside other familiar dishes such as Kimchi Fried Rice, Ramyun, Bibimbap and stir-fried hot plate meats, JMT caught our attention with its offerings that seemed to be more aligned towards indie Korean restaurants. Items available on the menu at JMT includes the Donkatsu (interestingly, they do serve two renditions — Chicken and Pork; both unfortunately unavailable during our visit), Fried Chicken, Korean Rice Ball and Seafood Pancake, just to name a few.

We initially wanted to go for the Donkatsu given how value-for-money they were at $9.90 and $10.90 for the Chicken and Pork variants respectively — this is especially after having seen social media posts where the Donkatsu does come in a pretty large size whilst coming with just a small portion of rice; basically pretty much the same sort that are served in some Korean establishments here such as The Butcher’s Dining, and Myeun-Ga II (the latter which we have tried, and posted some time ago). Unfortunately, the guy over the counter had told us that it was sold out for the day; that was how we eventually ended up with Jjajangmyeon. Having tried a couple of Jjangmyeon around at this current juncture, JTM’s rendition is one which we felt was a good eat within a food court that is conveniently located within a shopping mall. Being priced at $8.90, the Jjajangmyeon was actually pretty close to restaurant-grade here; we liked how the caramalised black bean sauce in their rendition of the Jjajangmyeon was not overly sweet — in fact, the flavours were well-controlled and that made it particularly easy to eat. Personally felt that the noodles were a little bit on the soft side — not exactly something to our liking, though we did not find that particularly disturbing either; perhaps just a matter of preference. Here, the black bean sauce also comes pretty wholesome; there are actually chunks of potato that are soft-to-the-bite here — almost akin to the boiled potatoes one can find in a bowl of curry chicken, while there were also big chunks of pork to chew on that has been coated with all that black bean sauce, which are also probably the largest chunks of pork we have found in any rendition of a Jjajangmyeon which is served in Singapore thus far. The Jjajangmyeon at JTM also features slices of pickled radish; a good addition which provided a refreshing crunch when all gets a little heavy here from all that thick, gloopy sauce and the carbs in the bowl.

Whilst we only tried a limited selection of items which JTM has to offer, one thing is pretty much for certain — JTM does bring the average food court patron a glimpse into Korean cuisine that is away from the Japanese-Korean cuisine which we are all too familiar with in the food court setting. Considering how their food is priced rather competitively against other slightly more “pricey” options such as that of western or Japanese cuisine, JTM still manages to make restaurant-style Korean cuisine rather accessible to the masses; an important factor to introduce such items to the food court crowds. We found the food served at JTM of food quality — at least the Jjajangmyeon was an item that was comparable to some renditions served at Korean-Chinese restaurants; more than enough to satisfy any itching cravings for the dish. Still hopeful to be able to give their Donkatsu a go some time soon — definitely something that we are going to grab some friends along for … just in case!
