The very few times I get to eat Korean food in Singapore🤗 Ratings take into consideration price of the dish, quality of the dish, and overall service and ambience of the location if applicable!🌟

Spicy fire chicken with tteok-bokki, baked with cheese.
Cheesy, stringy goodness which complemented really well with the supposedly overwhelming spiciness set by the buldak sauce. The cheesiness seemed to have help take away some of the spice, but this dish still packs the right amount of punch. Enjoyed the overall flavour of it, as well as the combination of Korean rice cakes and chicken. As an iza-bar, Taan seems to offer a ‘tapas’ selection of Japanese and Korean dishes that is best shared with friends. Similarly, I believe that this dish is best shared, especially with its huge amount of cheesiness and spice!

Without the lunch set, the stew alone costs $13. With the lunch set, for $13 you get the stew, a bowl of rice, and a drink.
An unassuming place whipping up a mind-blowingly delicious spicy tofu stew. Right level of spicy, generous amount of seafood - shrimps and clams, and a fair amount of enoki, shiitake mushrooms and vegetables.
I absolutely love spicy tofu stew, and I foresee myself coming back for this, especially when everything was done right😊

For a single portion it faired pretty small. First time trying mac & cheese combined with seafood, and it’s not bad, though I would think it paired better with meat and bacon instead. The mac & Cheese was on the more watery and milky texture, rather than one that was thick and cheesy. I would think it boils down to one’s palate when it comes to this sizzling plate of mac & cheese. Personally, I was not wow-ed and found it rather mediocre, especially with the price and portion.

Buying in a set gets you a side and a drink as well. The side of honey butter fries was... completely not my cup of tea. Sweet and had a milky undertone.
The crispy chicken was served hot and crispy, just like it should be. It was juicy and oily which was great, but does get too you after a bit. The salsa-like side was an added sour, refreshing kick that which complemented the chicken well. Honestly had higher expectations for chir chir after not having it after a few years. Somehow, it did not amaze me as much this time.

This was a decent army stew. I wasn’t a fan on the taste of the stew initially because it didn’t taste as spicy or sour as desired, but it did grow on me after a few refills and further simmering. A good portion of ingredients and straightforward and easy to eat, not much of a mess made either unlike ala carte steamboat. Comforting on a cold day!

This stall gives a wide range of side dishes like kimchi, seaweed, taupok, and it’s free flow! You can ask them for top-ups😊 I loved the kimchi they served, but for the spicy tofu stew, the taste of the kimchi in the tofu stew was extremely different to me. It wasn’t extremely tasty, sour or spicy like the ones served in the side. A relatively good amount of beef and tofu. A good meal but rather ordinary!

Couldn’t really make out what this dish was - so the experience was kind of ordinary. The steam egg was on the softer side, with what I believe looks like chopped carrots?? And cooked with soy sauce. I guess it does serve as a side to complement your meals but I’m not a fan of it and probably wouldn’t order it again.

I foresee myself being addicted to this. First time at Paik’s and I decided to give the spicy tofu stew, which is a new dish on their menu, a shot. It came in a small bowl, and I slightly upset with how small the portion seemed. However, coupled with rice (which was an add on of $1), it made a perfect meal. The soup was so flavourful because it contained many ingredients, completely taking me by surprise. In this small bowl was a generous amount of tofu, minced beef, sotong, tiny shrimp 2 clams, and finally finished off with a lovely egg. It lived up to its name of being spicy and I’m so glad it did (you know the disappointment when the menu says it’s spicy but it isn’t?). This meal really gave me all that warm fuzzy feeling, it was so comforting to eat as well as it satisfied my Korean stew cravings! For $6.90, the amount of ingredients in an ostensibly small bowl makes it worth it; and it might even be difficult to find.

Was craving something sour and spicy - and this always leads me back to kimchi and all it’s stews. This bowl was really filling, with a generous amount of ramyeon. The chicken bulgogi has a nice marinade, which added a nice carnivorous touch to a usually vegetarian dish. However, I did feel like the soup could do with more spiciness, especially because they declared that it was going to be spicy; and it really wasn’t. So that was a bit disappointing. It came with free sides, which was a pleasant surprise :) it’s a decent meal that did not make me go ‘wow’, but it does serve some comfort eating it.

The kimchi stew was served hot and bubbling, and together with rice it went great! With Kimchi, enoki mushrooms, beancurd and pork chunks, the portion of this dish was just right. The stew was more to the sour side, and with a very distinct kimchi taste. It was not too spicy, although I wished it could be spicier, or with the option to make it spicy/non-spicy like their ramyeon. I also expected the pork to be in slices, and being in chunks made it slightly more difficult to eat and chew, as it was a little hard. Nonetheless, I liked the flavour of the soup and the dish was generally up to expectations, but having to top up $2 for a bowl rice makes it overall a little pricey.

There was a spicy and non spicy option for this. Got the spicy option for this, and the spiciness of this soup really packed a punch! The noodles of the ramyeon seem like the normal kind you can find in Ramen packets. And while it might not seem that worth it, the portion of seafood was not bad and seemed of quite good quality. The prawn and octopus were big, and there were a few clams inside. Topped off with an egg too!
