Snag my last chance to enjoy 1 for 1 at Joo Bar and no other person to enjoy it with than my mum 😬
It is not difficult to understand why this place is so popular, the slightly pricey Korean small and big bites somehow works with the generous (for light drinkers) low alcoholic content Makgeolli. The above dish feels good till you stop at the salad concoction that surprises you with bites of small anchovies, an excellent well thought side.

Warning: this is really not for the faint-hearted nor diners with low heat tolerance.

Served in a hot plate and lit with a flame torch right in front of your eyes, this flaming chick jumeokbap‘s spiciness is not one to be underestimated. Spicy chicken thighs in chunks, pickled radish, shiitake mushroom, king oyster mushrooms and a ball of seaweed rice. Just as the dish was lit with fire, my tongue was too, with the dish. Thought the combination of the side ingredients especially the rice ball was a little out of place in the dish, but overall still decent taste. Perhaps they might want to consider lowering the spiciness.

But IT IS SO VERY WORTH IT. The bone-in short rib is steeped in some special soy marinade which makes it really nice and sweet and idk just amazing??? Fun Fact: The internet tells us that the “LA Kalbi / Galbi” cut (which means thinly sliced across the bone) originated from Korean immigrants living in Los Angeles. And the LA stands for lateral and not Los Angeles!

Great ambience, food and of course makgeolli! Try the yucha flavour if you’re afraid to try (like me), it is a really nice sweet sour flavour.

Can’t go wrong with tender grilled pork and kimchi, and Joo Bar’s rendition went great with a giant jug of their slushy makgeolli! That side salad was really interesting too, with a light, creamy dressing and umami from little chewy anchovies.

Grilled Pork Belly ($26)
.
Final day to enjoy 1-for-1 @joobarsg . Grilled pork was sliced up into just the right bite size, slightly charred and salted just right and best have with the garlic chips topping. Loved having this with my Makgeolli and munching on the side salad that had anchovies sprinkled generously and lending an aromatic crunch.
