Riding on the Hallyu wave, there seem to be more and more Koreans cafes or restaurants in Singapore. You can easily get Bingsu, Korean fried chicken etc here now, that you don't have to fly to Korea to satisfy you food cravings.

Fans of @chirchirsg will be delighted to know their signature crispy fried chicken is part of the new
Chirispicy Cheeseburger. Deep-fried crispy chicken thigh sandwiched between fluffy burger buns in special chilli-mayo dressing.

For those who can’t take spicy food, Chiriyaki Cheeseburger is a good alternative. Made of grilled minced chicken patty glazed with teriyaki sauce between pillowy burger buns.

Here I’m having the Family Set ($60) comes with 4 mains and 4 regular-sized cups of @TheAlley.SG Royal No.9 Milk Tea (fixed at 50% sugar with pearls)

Expect the popular Korean "jjamppong" (spicy seafood noodle dish) to be re-invented by having flavours from around the world.

Traditionalists can still satisfy their jjamppong craving by ordering the spicy Cha Ppong ($15.80) filled with mussels, squid, prawns and quail eggs. Come in two level of spiciness, it was hard for me to finish on own especially I can’t take spicy food. Or slurp up Vongole Ppong ($16.80) whereby the clam broth is spiked with white wine and garlic. Springy noodles, rich clam broth with a light spicy kick, the soupy dish was different in a good way.

Birthday Feast! Didn’t expect that the table will be soon groaning under the weight of all the food when we ordered. At lost on what to order, we went for the recommended Set B which comes with
- Heuk Moksal aka Premium Black Pork Collar
- Hujae Samgyub aka Smoke Pork Belly
- Hangjeong aka Pork Jowl
- Mushroom platter
- One choice of soup
- One choice of pancake (chives, seafood or kimchi)
- Makgeolli aka Korean Rice Wine
- Oreo Bingsu
And as we felt it might not be enough, we still add on Ginseng Chicken and Marinated Chicken. OPPSIE!

Luckily there was a staff helping us to barbecue the food so it was pretty hassle free for us. A variety of side dishes and well cooked meat, all we need to do is to polish off the food!

Whenever it gets so hot and humid, means it’s time for some icy cold dessert. Nunsongyee is one of the first to bring in this soft snowy bingsu that previously have to fly to Korea to get.

Green Tea Bingsu that’s generously topped with red bean paste, matcha ice cream and mochi! We just can’t get enough of this. Now quick question, who still remember where is the first Nunsongyee outlet?

What better way to end Friday with, especially when you sip a bottle of chilled beer and soak in the evening breeze by Singapore River. Munching on boneless crispy fried chicken in soy sauce or yang nyum flavour, it feels as though I'm back in Korea again!

Love how the soy sauce complete the fried chicken and just wanna keep having more. Didn't quite like yang nyum as the spicy kicks in after a few bites.

One can hardly miss this fermented rice wine when in Korea, or in this case having Korean food. Served in a huge pot, is easy to drink as it's slightly sweeter as they mixed in natural honey. Plus this goes well with the 4 Colours Pork Belly Set we had!

E!GHT Korean BBQ second outlet is now at Level 4 of Shaw Centre. Similar look and feel as they remain the industrial interior but one thing I love are those Korean MVs that's kept loop, especially happy when Scarlet Heart's OST appear *heart flutters

Didn't have time to visit Korea this year but seem like they're now serving thick cuts of meat. To bring you the same dining experience, you'll get to indulge in Big Hog Plate ($45) an amazingly huge 360g of lightly seasoned Hungarian Mangalisata pork belly. Full fledge service here, allows you to indulge without hassle of getting "smoked", ensure each piece is juicy with slight crisp. Served with thickly sliced onions, king oyster mushrooms and traditional mugwort rice cake with honey dip on side.

Will be nice to enjoy the Design-Your-Own Bibimbap for lunch.

Is one dish I'll love going back for. Chicken tenders, tteokbokki and garlic cloves generously glazed with honey butter but not overly sweet. Just can't get enough of those fried tteokbokki!

Picking one carb, one protein, three complements before choosing either original sauce (slightly spicy) or soy sauce. Interestingly they have Quinoa as a carb option, which is a great alternative to white rice but not found in traditional Korean dishes. Served on the hot plate, sizzling sound of bibimbap just make you want to mix it up and dig in quickly!

Still hungry? Get a side of Honey Butter Chicken ($18), Joo Wings ($18) or Yucha Makgeolli Slush ($36 for large) for a full meal experience!
