From the Burpple community

Back to Joo Bar but this time without burpplebeyond - of course the tofu chips was the first thing I ordered (as usual). I was questioned by dining companion, visiting Joo Bar for the first time, if the chips were really made with tofu. I agreed that it’s hard to imagine how the soft protein could be transformed into these crispy deep fried chips but all I know was the lighter chips with kimchi and avocado salsas was an item I’d order again.
On this visit I tried the honey butter chicken which were fried chicken chunk drenched in a buttery honey sauce; all I was reminded of was Chir Chir fried honey butter chicken without so much sauce but of much better value if I remembered right.

Joo bossam was easily the winner for us. Soft tender pork belly yet retaining its structural integrity in your mouth, topped with pickled cabbage and radishes.

My friends and I were lamenting the lack of good Korean restaurants here but this is definitely one of my go to Korean restaurants now. They have a mix of traditional and modern dishes that are moderately priced for the environment (modern and a bit fun).

Two great dishes:
- calamari - great spices and fried well
- Kalbi - well seasoned and so juicy

We were lucky to reserve a table for 4 at this cosy joint on a Fri night, the place was packed! It serves up yummy bar bites that pair amazing with their refreshing makgeolli. Star of the night was this L.A. Style Black Angus Kalbi that was beef short ribs marinated in a smoky sweet korean soy sauce 😍 the Yucha makgeolli was supposedly the least sweet but it was still pretty on the sweet side, altho VERY refreshing!!! Prices are a bit steep so would suggest to come with a larger group of friends

Joo Bar is a sleek and inviting venue inside a heritage three-storey shophouse along the historic Quee Lan Street. Although it's technically a bar, their modern Korean bites are top notch with things like tender Grilled Pork Belly ($26) and the Seafood Rapokki ($22), a rich spicy stew of ramyeon, rice cake, shrimp, mussels, and Korean fishcake blanketed in melted mozarella. Burppler C A had his first makgeolli experience here, "great ambience, food and of course makgeolli!"

Pity Burpple 1-1 ended for this amazing Korean bar! Still visit often though as I cannot get enough of their amazing alcoholic drinks and side dishes! Ambience is amazing with loud Korean tunes and jolly conversation filling the small but cozy place! 💕🤟🏻
