Order from: https://order.capita3eats.com/ajummas
If you are craving for comfort, Ajumma’s is the place to go to for casual Korean dining in Singapore.
Walk pass their restaurant at Funan basement and you would often find a long line waiting to get in. Alternatively, you can always pre-order takeaways for that added convenience.
Offering authentic Korean fare at value-for-money price points, Ajumma’s (meaning “auntie” in Korean) has something to warm your heart and your tummy, like a hot bowl of kimchi broth.
But that is not all. They have got the staples like classic Korean street food, different cuts of meats, rice and noodle dishes, stews, and meal bundles that won’t hurt your wallet.
Ajumma’s Best Seller Bundle ($30, available exclusive via Capita3Eats) is highly recommended. Good for 2 persons, this set features their signature Prime Beef Kalbi, Kimchi Fried Rice with Prawns, and Fluffy Steamed Egg.
Only USDA Prime Beef is used, marinated in an in-house secret sauce and grilled till smoky. Expect quality tender and succulent bone-less rib meat on your plate. Served with a stir-fried Kimchi Fried Rice fried with prawns and topped with roasted perilla seaweed.
A bowl of fluffy steamed egg completes the set. This side dish is simple yet feels luscious with its creamy texture and a light clean broth flavour, punctuated with a whiff of sesame oil.
Get the Kimchi Fried Rice
The Kimchi Fried Rice is also available ala carte ($12.90) prepared with kimchi (the main star), shrimps, assorted herbs, and roasted Korean seaweed.
Served with a topping of fried egg with runny yolk, best to break and mix into your rice for an added silkiness.

The Korean Fried Chicken restaurant offers over 20 variations of fried and roasted chicken, using only fresh chicken, never frozen ones.

For 6 hours the fresh chicken is marinated in a special blend, then battered and deep-fried until it is worthy to be called Crispy Fried Chicken. The meat remains succulent and flavourful not only on the skin, but all the way to the bone.
If not, get the Spicy Chicken ($18.80 for half, $30.50 for whole) slathered with a sticky spicy chilli sauce with a hint of sweetness, then topped with nutty almond flakes.

You get 2 options for Ramyun: Ssamjang Chicken Shin Ramyun or the meatless Shiitake Mushroom Samyang Ramyun.
Pair your Ramyun of choice with a crisp thin-crust pizza, topped with either spicy chunks of Ssamjang Chicken, Shiitake mushrooms, or kimchi+cheese. Complete the set with your favourite Cruffin.
Order the Set A with Caffe Latte, Cold Honey Grapefruit, Sunny Cruffin

Enjoy a toasty crisp croissant as a muffin sandwich, filled with sunny-side up egg, premium turkey ham and melted cheese. A hint of sweetness comes from dal.komm’s special blend of Korean honey.
Your savoury Cruffin goes well with an ice-cold cup of Honey Grapefruit, a healthy fresh grapefruit juice sweetened with a kiss of honey.

Order the Galmaegisal, US Pork Skirt ($21.90 for 170g)
There are many types of meats used for Korean BBQ, but one type stands out from the rest: Galmaegisal.
Galmaegisal is a premium meat cut found between the ribs and the belly of the pig, an extension of the sirloin.
In meat parlance, it is known as a pork skirt or skirt meat, or the “wagyu of pork”. You get the idea. It has that perfect lean meat to fat ratio, making it a superiorly tender and juicy meat for grilling.
Weighing only 250g in every full-grown pig, it is once said this special and rare meat cut is reserved only for the Korean royalty of the past.
Seorae is one of the first Korean restaurants in Singapore that offer the signature Korean galmaegisal. The meats are carefully marinated and massaged to elevate the prized meat’s texture and taste.
While it may not taste the same as when you freshly barbecue it there and then, you can still taste the richness in flavour and characteristics of Wagyu from this Korean Galmaegisal.
Available in original, spicy and garlic flavours.
