I thoroughly enjoyed my experience at Cherki!

The Koreans have this popular expression - ‘Rice Thief’, referring to dishes that are so delicious, you don’t realise how quickly you finish a bowl of rice with it. The Rendang Beef Cheeks was this for me.

BUT what’s amazing is that there was an even better dish: the Baba Back Ribs. It was so flavourful, and not just salty….. And the meat was so tender, it almost resembled chicken thigh.

As many reviews have mentioned, the portions are indeed smaller but it was enough for me. Plus points for 1-1 on Beyond 🤩 Plus plus points for friendly staff who knew their menu well!

Will return if I’m in the area :)

Portions are HUGE and prices are very friendly, especially at a place like Esplanade.

Restaurant has an interesting concept - a great conversation starter with your friends/date :-)

Opted for the upgraded version (additional ingredients and fresh prawns!) which costs $5.

Noodles were springy and the upgrade was definitely worth the money. However, the coffeeshop that this store is located in is pretty small and warm so we always have issues finding seats and end up sweating buckets.

Overall, I don’t think the bowl of noodles is spectacular enough for me to WANT to squeeze in the small + warm space but I wouldn’t mind heading there if I’m around the area.

Very satisfying meal of roast pork, char siew and wantons. Remember to ask for the chilli 🌶 (it ELEVATES the meat)

Try not to go on weekdays peak hour. There are too many working adults heading there for their lunch break.
