6 Authentic Tanjong Pagar Korean Restaurants To Get A Taste Of Seoul

Travelling to Seoul may seem a little far fetched at the moment, but did you know that you can satisfy your craving for authentic and traditional Korean food right here on our shores?

Remember when Seoul Garden used to be the only restaurant that served up Korean barbecue?

Well, gone are the days. Over the last few years, Korean cuisine has taken over the country by storm, with countless restaurants popping up at every corner. As we all know, one of the biggest food trends to hit Singapore was Korean barbecue, where everything else followed.

If you’re on the hunt for your favourite japchae or bibimbap, here are 6 restaurants in Tanjong Pagar that can take you straight to Seoul with their authentic Korean flavours, without having to leave the country!

Superstar K

This restaurant is a household name among Korean barbecue joints in the country and truly holds up its ‘superstar’ status. Superstar K is known to be one of the best charcoal-grilled barbecue restaurants that boast a wide variety of the juiciest cuts ranging from beef ribs (S$36), pork jowl, and pork belly ($19.90++).

Besides their selection of food, the reason why people keep coming back to this place is its no-frills interior and atmosphere, which is reminiscent of the barbecue joints in downtown Seoul that adds more authenticity to the dining experience.

If you’re looking for healthier alternatives and are worried about messing up your diet, they do provide vegetarians options and give customers the choice to steam their meats instead of frying.

Fun fact: Kko Kko Na Ra is actually the first-ever restaurant to bring Chi-Maek (Korean Fried Chicken & Beer) to Singapore in 2008, which paved the way for plenty of other Korean fried chicken joints in the country today.

Since then, they have been perfecting their signature fried chicken while adding more Korean favourites to their menu. Don’t miss out on the crispy soy garlic (S$20 for 8pcs) and yangyum (S$23 for 8pcs) chicken, and pair that off with a cold glass of beer.
