With the “Circuit Breaker” measures in place, many have turned to watching a lot of Korean dramas from The World Of The Married, Itaewon Class, Kingdom, Hi Bye Mama, Hyena, to Hospital Playlist.
All these K-dramas may just make you craving for Korean food all over again.
While you cannot dine in for now, why not order some to your place while you eat some Korean Fried Chicken and rewatch Crash Landing On You all over again?
(Just a note: the opening timings of these restaurants are only indicative because as they are likely to change during the “Circuit Breaker” period.)
Seorae Korean Charcoal BBQ
Plaza Singapura #02-01 68 Orchard Road Singapore 238839
Tel: +65 9181 2709
Opening Hours: 11.30am – 9pm (Mon – Sun)
Seorae is one of the first Korean restaurants in Singapore that offer the signature Korean galmaegisal (premium pork skirt meat).
It is known for its Hameul Pajeon. Pajeon is a traditional Korean pancake dish that is made from a batter of wheat flour, rice flour, eggs, and scallions/fresh spring onions.
If you’re a fan of spring onions, you’ll love this dish as it’s stuffed with generous portions of it. And I mean chunks of highly visible long pieces.
Aside from the scallion being its prominent ingredient (the “pa” in panjeon means scallion, “jeon” means pan-fried battered food), this version (Hameul Pajeon) has seafood in it, such as prawns and squid.
The pancake here has a mildly crunchy exterior, but inside it is fluffy and almost mochi-like in texture.

The Korean Fried Chicken restaurant offers over 20 variations of fried and roasted chicken, using only fresh chicken, never frozen ones.
To ensure flavour consistency across all its outlets, all proprietary sauces and marinades are imported from Seoul.
A good starting point is the Signature Fried Chicken available in Crispy, Garlicky, and Spicy. You can enjoy them as whole cuts, just the wings and drumlets, or as boneless tenders.
Note: they deep-dry their chicken only upon order, so may take a while before they are ready.
Some of their special highlights include the Nest Snow which features Cajun chicken tenders stacked with melted cheese and whipped cream; and Honey Butter Chicken made with boneless fried chicken mixed with Chir Chir’s proprietary honey butter seasoning and sauce. Chir Chir (Bugis Junction)
Chir Chir has also partnered with The Alley so you can order Bubble Tea along with your fried chicken.

Nipong Naepong – JEM
JEM #01-16, 50 Jurong Gateway Road, Singapore 608549 (Jurong East MRT)
Opening Hours: 11am – 9pm (Mon – Sun)
Jjamppong 짬뽕? It is a Korean-Chinese noodle dish in spicy seafood or pork broth usually flavoured with gochutgaru chilli powder.
Classic Jjamppong, Vongole Jjamppong, Alfredo-Jjamppong, Thai Jjamppong, Tomato Jjamppong, and even Salad Jjamppong… you get this dish transformed in 9 different renditions inspired by flavours from around the world.
The Jjolmyeon (wheat noodles) used are made in Korea exclusively for the brand, relatively thin and long, with chewy and tender bite.
The Cha Ppong is the Classic Jjamppong noodles, a bowl which came loaded with fried cabbage, mussels, squid, prawn, and quail eggs.
The soup was actually quite addictive, of richly flavoured seafood broth, balanced with the sweetness of the broth.
Cooked in high heat, it imparted some wok-hei and drinking the deep-spicy soup could result in some tissue-worth of head sweat. Nipong Naepong (JEM)

This is perhaps the first Korean fast-casual restaurant in Singapore that offers Korean Burgers AND Korean Fried Chicken in the same place.
These knock-out K-burgers use buns made in-house using potato flour. Baking is done daily so you get hot, fluffy buns in every burger.
The meat patty, the heart of the burger, is made from premium beef imported from the US. The cheese is also US-sourced and is exclusive to Singapore.
Using chicken that is always fresh, never frozen, the Korean Fried Chicken is available in Mix Parts, Drumsticks, or Wingettes & Drumettes.
The all-time favourite is the Honey Chicken glazed with the candy sweet honey sauce; while the Yangnyeom Chicken would be sticky-sweet and just slightly-spicy. Burger+ (Clarke Quay Central)

Dosirak, which refers to the traditional Korean lunchbox, is part of the product concept. Here, they serve the Bibimbap and all its ingredients inside your “lunchbox’, in this case, a capped pint.
The colourful pints which may remind you of those which store ice cream, making it easy for takeaways as well.
The fun part happens when you add the sauce and shake the Bibimbap until all the ingredients mix up and come together.
Their Bibimbap veers away from tradition, mixed by shaking, inspired by the traditional Korean lunchbox.
But how they balance the dish with the right ingredients, nutrition, and flavour remains true to Korean food philosophy.
Expect home-made quality for food ingredients, including kimchi and condiments. Dosirak (313@somerset)

Hongdae Oppa Korean Dining House serves a broad selection of Urban K-Food including its signature Sizzlers (Bokkeumbap), Korean Fried Chicken, Hot Stone Jjigae, Tteokbokki, Ramyeon and side dishes.
Calm down your noodle cravings with this Korean-style Oppa! Ramyeon ($13.90), a signature dish served with springy noodles in a house-made spicy soup.
Joining the party are minced pork, slices of luncheon meat, onion, zucchini, fresh enoki mushrooms, seaweed, seasoned meat, and topped with an egg.
Counting calories? Go for the skinny noodle option with only 10 kcal.
I personally prefer the usual ramyeon for that al dente bite. But the plainer skinny noodles (sometimes called “miracle noodles” or “konjac noodles”) gels with the rich soup quite well. Hongdae Oppa (Plaza Singapura)

Twins Korean Restaurant
7 Craig Rd Singapore 089667 (Tanjong Pagar MRT)
Tel: +65 6221 5205
Opening Hours: 11:30am – 3:00pm, 5:00pm – 12:00am (Mon – Sat), 5:00pm – 11:00pm (Sun)
Twins Korean Restaurant is known for its array of Korean Fried Chicken, cooked up by a pair of Korean twins and their team.
Its revamped menu includes more Korean-Chinese dishes, and the three primary Junghwa dishes of Jajangmyeon, Jjamppong, and Tang Soo Yook can all be found here.
The Tang Soo Yook is prepared based on a recipe shared with the twins, by one of the well-known restaurants in Seoul specialising in preparing this type of pork.
Said to be the Koreanised version of sweet and sour pork, the deep fried battered bite-sized pork pieces were served separately from the sauce. This is so as to retain the crispness. I loved the lemony twang to the sauce.

This home-grown brand has been popular and fairly successful, having gone on to open Guksu next door, and Hanguk Kitchen – which supplies cooked and dry food to other restaurants, cafes and hotels.
‘Sundubu’ is freshly curdled soft tofu stew. Kimchi’s version – the Daeji Gogi Sundubu Jjigae comes with seafood-based broth, soft tofu, pork collar, vegetables and egg, served with rice.
I ordered the pork version, though are other choices of chicken, clam, tuna and seafood.
Between all the stews, I actually liked this best. Perhaps because the taste was cleaner, with not that much going on.

Causeway Point #B1-K11 1 Woodlands Square Singapore 738099 (Woodlands MRT)
Tel: +65 6219 5884
Opening Hours: 11:30am – 9pm (Mon – Sun)
Inspired by the night markets of Korea such as the popular Myeongdong Street Market, 9PM Kkochi is a Korean Street Skewer specialty stall in Singapore, found at Woodlands Causeway Point’s basement.
Calm your pork barbecue cravings and try this Korean-style skewer. The Pork Belly Zig Zag is a skewered pork belly coated in an authentic Korean marinade, then grilled à la minute over charcoal.
The pork is threaded in a zig zag fashion (hence, the name of the dish) with 2 pieces of bell peppers in between.
The torch-flaming melts some of the pork fat and adds to the smoky taste of the Kkochi.
You can enjoy this hearty kkochi with a refreshing radish kimchi on the side, with the Pork Belly with Kimchi.
