1. Todamgol Korean Traditional Restaurant

No restaurant is (literally) bigger on Korean cuisine than Todamgol.

Easily recognisable for its unique village – themed décor, Todamgol is just as well-known for indulging patrons with noticeably larger meal portions. All main courses on their menu can make a fair meal for 3 adults.

While the joint offers familiar comforts like Korean Army Stew, be sure to also try their signature bibimbap. The difference is in their trademark gochu paste, and many swear by it.

If you’re off work late or raring for a heavier supper, Todamgol can also fill your appetite all the way till 3 am.

2. Wang Dae Bak

Few K-BBQs do their meats as well as Wang Dae Bak.

Being one of few K-BBQ joints that exclusively use charcoal, Wang Dae Bak’s grilled cuts are known to be more fragrant. For the health-conscious,  their cuts also have a better balance between meat and fat.

Wang Dae Bak was always packed till late before Circuit Breaker measures came into force, but even now their online delivery menu is receiving rave reviews.

Want to try the best of Wang Dae Bak? Check out their Bulgogi or BBQ combo meal sets, or tantalise the tastebuds with their all-Korean Three Soup Set.

3. Big Mama Korean

For Koreans studying and working in Singapore, Big Mama is the closest thing to home.

Started by former caretaker and tutor Candy Namgung Ji Young, Big Mama is the culmination of years of heart-warming, authentic Korean dishes personally prepared by Candy for Korean students.

The joint is also consistently voted one of Singapore’s best places to enjoy Korean chicken stir-fry, and patrons have also highlighted the expansive range of Korean side dishes, or banchan.
