Crispy outside, not too mushy inside. This is a carbo-bomb! When I was young-er, the Tanjong Pagar stretch of Korean restaurants really kept me going after nights out in town. It’s like a Korean-styled prata fix. This feeds 3-4 pax sharing btw.

Whoever thinks that the Jajjangmyeon/ Jjangpong set is meant for 2 pax is sorely mistaken! It will take at least 2-3 hungry male adults to finish both noodle dishes and the fried pork/ chicken. The peas really made the dish for me! Well-played. Mix it quick lest the noodles coagulate into a lump of dough.

Make it your personal mission to try all the Ko-Chi places along Tanjong Pagar/ Telok Ayer! Hong Jjajang is usually the spill-over place for O.bba Jajjang a few units down. That doesn’t mean it plays second fiddle to it’s more popular neighbour. The same separation of crispy fried pork and sauce is practiced here. While the meat has more a thicker coat of batter, the really gingery sauce cuts through flour and grease! Definitely a more flavourful sauce than O.bba IMHO.

O.bba does the Tangsuyuk different. One, it adds thick chunks of deep fried lotus root! Two, the sweet and sour sauce is kept separate from the fried pork in a Pyrex beaker! Not a bad idea 💡 I can understand why some of us would like less sauce and crispier pork. Overall the sweet and sour sauce lacks that vinegary tang. Maybe we are too used to 咕噜肉 but it could have been you know... more RED. Lol. Order this as part of the Jajjangmyeon and jjangpong set to stretch your dollar further.

Be prepared to queue even on a weekday. Come at 6pm and expect to wait 15 mins. On Fri/Sat you can probably start queueing from 5:30pm lol. Most Ko-Chi places have the JP+JM+ Tangsuyuk (sweet and sour pork) value set. For 2 pax you will be BEYOND full. 3-pax is about right. This place used to open really late, but now last order is around 10pm~ Top 5 Ko-Chi in Singapore I daresay.

Ko-Chi sweet and sour pork prepared a la minute. I can taste the vinegary tang. Probably the best main to order here! There are some sharing sets where you get 2 x jajjangmyeon/ jjangpong together with the Tangsuyuk for $43++! Value. :D There’s quite some #hype with Mukjja now because of the Singapore K-wave, so reach early on Fri/ Sat as a queue forms quickly after 6pm.

This puts the K in KFC! Crunchy rice flour-battered and served piping hot. There’s not a lot of spice here, and you can just about taste the garlic sauce. The mains at Mukjja are generally pricey ($20-$30), but the idea here is that each person gets a noodle main (either the Jajjangmyeon and Jjangpong) and shares 1 main with 2-3 other pax. Y’all can make it under $25 a pax that way~~~

I can eat Nasi Lemak 3 times a day for a month.
