Hidden in a maze of Korean restaurants on Tanjong Pagar Road, this joint may not stand out. However, once you find it you'll be faced with an amazing Tteokbokki ($28.90) stew which sees tteok with fried chicken, glass noodles, instant noodles, quail eggs and fish cakes. For an extra cheese topping add on the Cheese Fall ($5.50)! For sides get their Giant Mandus ($12) and Fish Cake Soup ($8) for a truly authentic experience!

SO GOOD......sometimes carbonara sauce can be overpowering and heavy but this isn’t at all!! Got the cheese waterfall ($5) that added to the creaminess of the dish so 4 people shared this and felt full (this pot was meant for 2 pax). Tteokbokki was soft enough and there wasn’t any difficulty chewing them!!! Super yummy 10/10 recommend + the delicious fried mandus ($3.50 for 2)

Finally made my visit here! Tteokbokki stew is good enough for 2 of us. I like the balancing taste of spiciness and sweetness of Korean food.

Red Holic opens till 2am so it makes the perfect supper or late night dinner spot. Even if you’re not dining with a group, there’s the option for the miniature Tteokbokki pots, or mandus. Prices are very reasonable for an eatery within city area, and the place is manned by 3 young Koreans. This is Korean comfort food at its best, and would be infinitely more comforting when savoured on a rainy day!

I haven’t seen giant mandus in Singapore before so this was a delightful surprise and a welcome reminder of my Seoul trip.

There are a few types of mandus on offer - these include the giant kimchi mandu, giant meat mandu, grilled meat mandu, and fried long mandu.

The giant mandus are quite affordable by Singapore standards at $2.50 Per piece. They’re steamed when ordered so you can be sure you’ll receive them piping hot!

Although these mandus couldn’t compare to the ones I had in Seoul, I found that they were not bad for a quick fix since we can’t travel to Korea as and when we have a mandu craving. They were both plump with meaty filling, but I was a little disappointed with the meat mandu as the filling tasted a little bland. Needed to dip it in the mandu dipping sauce provided to add a little more flavour. I preferred the kimchi one in this case as the kimchi added more taste to the meat filling! The mandu skins were soft and easy to bite through, yet still retained their integrity when handled with chopsticks. Overall quite a decent Korean mandu offering here in Singapore. Would return for both the stews and the mandu!

Spicy tteokbokki can be found almost anywhere, but restaurants specialising in tteokbokki stew aren't too common a sight. After torturing myself by rewatching the tteokbokki stew scenes from Korean drama series "Let Eat", a visit to Red Holic was inevitable.

The Beef Brisket Tteokbokki gleefully bubbles away, a pot of red: tteokbokki, ramyum, glass noodles, mandu, leeks, cabbage, tender beef. It is the stuff of my dreams. It is one I willingly embrace, over and over again. It is a messy affair, but I don't care.

You can ask for the sauce to be "extra sweet" or "extra spicy" but I think it's perfect just the way it is. Don't forget the side of fish cake soup ($8), for that extra special touch of authenticity.
