Drop by this casual dining spot on Tanjong Pagar Road for authentic Korean grub. Order their famous Jjajangmyeon ($12, $2 for more noodles) for soft noodles bathed in a luscious sweet and salty black bean sauce. Otherwise, opt for the soupier but equally delicious Jamppong ($14) that sees noodles in a spicy seafood broth that is incredibly addictive. For larger groups, fill the table with their delectable Ginseng Chicken Soup ($18), Seafood Spring Onion Pancake ($20) and Steam Egg ($5). To avoid waiting, come during off peak hours.

Come in groups of four for after-work dinner and drinks in Holland Village. Order their Dweji Suyuk Bossam ($33) for a satisfying dish of super tender pork buried in kimchi. Also good is their Budae Jjigae ($48) with tofu, sausages, ham, enoki mushrooms, korean dumplings, leek, spring onions, cheese and ramyeon. Psst. They offer a great selection of banchan (think baby potatoes and fresh kimchi that is unbelievably refreshing) so be sure to leave some space for that!

Round up the gang and prepare to get your hands dirty at this Korean joint in Suntec City. Get their Deep Fried Chicken ($3.90 for one, $11 for three, $21 for 6) that comes in five different flavours — garlic, soya sauce, sweet & sour, spicy, and honey glaze. Expect super crisp batter that breaks apart to reveal tender and juicy meat. If you only have space for one, go for the spicy flavour that carries quite a punch whilst being the perfect combination of sweet and savoury!

Easties, swing by Downtown East for slightly sweet and spicy Budae Jigae ($13.90 per pax with a min. of two pax). Choose two main ingredients from chicken sausage, sliced beef, cheese, mushrooms or mussels — a good combination would be cheese with mussels. The stew comes with tteokbokki, odeng, kimchi and eggs. Pro-tip: Do not leave the stew boiling for too lest the ingredients start sticking to the bottom of the pot!
