The jajangmyeon is mastered with the springy ramen with caramelised onions, and bits of minced pork. Served together with the endless fried chicken and pork (tangsuyuk), and finished with sweet fruity soju - I love the grape flavour!

The jamppong was abit too spicy for me tho! We left v v v full

Or sweet and sour pork. We got the XL version for $40. Its different from the Chinese floury kinds we know, its more substantial, crispy and engulfed in a sour, tart sauce.

Its at Dong Fang Hong

Celebrated a birthday here, first time at a korean chinese place with jjajangmyeon filled with lots of onions with tangy black bean sauce. Theres a lot of similarities in korean and chinese food, and the marriage of them here pays tribute to the best of them

Got the $12 one, though I recommend to go for the $15 one if you prefer more meat!

The highlight of the meal is the seafood mac and cheese, which exceeded our expectations. While it differ from the usual crisp baked m&c, its creaminess and the tender seafood pieces (prawns, crab meat) go v well together.

(~$11.90)

Also unusual that its in a korean restaurant (fusion heh)

The fried chicken made me slightly disappointed. Never a fan of chicken tenders as it doesnt feel the most authentic. Also the fondue cheese may be nice, but when mixed with the other cheeses (mozarella?) doesnt give off a striking taste. Would prefer going for more authentic chicken bites.

($32.90)

PSA theres 50% cashback on cashback app, which i only realised after paying for the meal...

there's many korean restaurants in the area and always wanted to try this one with their lunch sets. Had the beef bone soup, and felt its creamy but saltier than what I like. The banchans (side dishes) are very much welcomed.

For $13 at this authentic korean setting, its not too bad

Walking by this stretch of jap and korean chains always make me extremely hungry, so finally we found ourselves here! Got the half and half, and was pleasantly surprised by how they shared so many complimentary sides for us (pasta salad, kimchi, ice lemon tea e.g.)

The bouncy noodles goes really well for both Jajangmyeon (jjm) and jamppong

The jjm, i felt, was sweeter than the savoury ones I'm used to. The cameralised brown onions are definitely good, though minced meat remains elusive. (wish its a more meaty dish). Meanwhile the jamppong checked all the boxes, with generous squids, clams, and also a small bit of crayfish. Its also tangy in its spiciness. Good to mix up the taste!!

($16 for the mixed)

First time trying naengmyeon and the spicy sauce got to me! Its a little hotter than i expected (in both sense of the word) and absolutely worth it with Grab's $2 promo.

We got the KFC (korean fried chicken) in Citrus sauce, which is an intriguing sweet taste that I'm not too used to. The crisp and tenderness is well captured. The egg portion was smaller than expected, but given that its just $3.

Highly recommend the chicken!!

Back here for the second time to try my favourite: beef rib soup! (galbi-tang). With burpple one for one, we also got the spicy pork stew.

My strong bias towards galbi-tang had me wolfing it down. While the soup may pale in comparison to the one in Bornga, the ribs are fairly tender and aromatic, accompanied by the broth. Also love that theres glass noodles inside. The spicy pork stew wasnt to my liking perhaps because im not a spice fan, also the meat felt tougher, and also healthier 😅 must say its really flavourful though!

To note that adding a rice means that it is the discounted item for burpple beyond (weird...). Otherwise we enjoyed this place's food thoroughly!

DIY BBB with the sesame soy chicken, tender mushrooms and beansprout + apple cider gochujang and soy sauce is a winner. Was initially stressed by the no. of options available, but this is indeed one neat way to make the bbb you want. (~$6 with entertainer)

Cheese and seafood heaven. Loved jampong since I had it in Korea in a cold wintery night, and I'm glad Singapore has this in a central place. (am very sad because we didn't get the 1:1, and only realise it after we left the place.......) still, a lovely dinner especially with the steaming hot bowl of noodles. ($17.90 each)

This authentic bowl of goodness was so Q. Mixed very well with the black bean sauce and was slightly sweet! Love the pieces of pork meat and crunchy cabbage inside too. ($9.80)
