Authentic Korean fare in Fortune Centre? That’s right, The Asia 2019 Korean Food exists, and it’s run by an elderly couple in their sixties. Expect all the Korean staples like kimchi ramen and kimchi stew along with some other slightly less Korean dishes, like curry rice & udon. Their main calling seems to be grilled meat on a hotplate, and I got the Pork Belly Set ($15 nett).⠀

A decent portion of thinly sliced pork belly is stir fried with thinly sliced onions & leeks, served on a sizzling hotplate with the sauce served separately. The banchan (side dishes) are pretty decent, encompassing kimchi, beansprouts, pickled ginger and a fluffy omelette roll, and the set is completed with a bowl of white rice & soup. The pork & onions are competently caramelised, but the sauce on the side was the one that provided most of the flavour.⠀

The sauce was an interesting cross between black bean sauce and gochujang, resulting in a deeply savoury flavour, but had a touch of unpleasant bitterness. I can’t fathom why The Asia 2019 didn’t just stir fry the pork, leeks & onions in that superb sauce, as it would’ve resulted in much better flavour assimilation into the meat & veg, plus the bitter edge of the sauce would’ve been cooked out.⠀

The banchan was pretty decent, with the omelette roll being notably airy & bouncy. Although I’m not entirely convinced that this Pork Belly Set was fully worth fifteen bucks, my belly & hunger were fully satisfied.

This place is amazing and I'll keep coming back. Thank you to the warm and friendly couple serving this authentic Korean food for us 🙏 really a hidden gem that deserves lots of love. Their grilled pork are the chunky ones! And on top of a bed of onions stir fried to be soft and caramel sweet.

If you're here, the jiggaes are very comforting too. Sundubi jiggae was just packed full of flavours. Love it :)

Ps. Photo taken mid meal so you can expect the serving is way more

Never tofu-ll to have Chendol at @yatkayan 😉

Happened to chance upon @kimtheasia while looking to fix our K-food cravings at Fortune Centre. Run by a friendly old Korean🇰🇷 couple, you might be able to practice your conversational Korean here!😬

Here’s what we had for dinner…
👉Tofu Soup Set - SGD8
👉Grilled Pork Set - SGD11

Long story short, they didn’t disappoint. The food wasn’t mind-blowing, but satisfying enough for us.

❗️No GST & Service Charge

After meal desserts? @yatkayan is just 15 secs walk away sia.

A small stall on the 2nd level of Fortune Centre looked so unassuming but it was owned by a nice Korean couple. Ordered Soft Tofu stew and it came with a rice, kimchi and a fried egg. The stew was delicious, but the tofu used was the rectangular Fortune silken tofu kind. The rice was pretty mushy and it was a little disappointing, but the kimchi was delicious. The fried egg was cold but still nice to have. The highlight of the meal was definitely the soup. It tasted so comforting and homey, and I devoured it. Please note that there’s no meat in it and requires a top-up of $2 but it was delicious nevertheless. They do not charge GST and Service Charge, and I would say that I would definitely return to try out their other dishes!
