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! 💕🤟🏻

Note this one down for dinner and drinks with your mates. To go with your jug of Makgeolli ($28), order their tender Grilled Pork Belly ($26) that comes with kimchi and a side salad drenched in a creamy anchovy-filled dressing. Another crowd favourite is the Seafood Rapokki ($22) that sees a rich and slightly spicy stew of ramyeon, topokki, shrimp mussels, squid and Korean fishcake blanketed in melted mozzarella.

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.
