This is a pretty ’legit’ casual and authentic Korean eatery I found at Newest Mall at West Coast.

Nana Bunsik serves up a variety of Korean street foods that aims to provide a genuine taste of Korea.

“Bunsik” refers to Korean street food or snacks, typically involving simple, everyday dishes.

This term encompasses popular foods such as Tteokbokki, Gimbap, and Ramyeon, loved for their convenience and comforting flavours.

The bunsik initiated by a Korean entrepreneur referred to affectionately as “Nana”, alongside her Singaporean partner, evolved from a home-based business during the COVID-19 pandemic to a physical storefront.

Upon entering Nana Bunsik, you would be greeted by an interior that combines elements from their favourite Korean eateries, enhancing the dining experience.

(Except that I wished they played some Korean songs instead.)

The menu at Nana Bunsik includes staples of Korean street food such as Gimbap, Tteokbokki, Ramyeon, and Dosirak.

There are also sharing dishes such as Kimchi Pancake ($14.80), Seafood Pancake ($16.80), Japchae ($12.80), and Spicy Chicken Dakgalbi ($16.80).

Call this the Extraordinary Attorney Woo effect, but I happened to enjoy Gimbap a lot better after this K-drama.

Their Original Gimbap ($9.80) features filling of spinach, carrot, pickled radish, ham, egg, and crab stick.

I had the Crabmeat Mayo Gimbap ($11.80) and enjoyed the sweet flavour of crabstick mixed with creamy, slightly tangy mayonnaise, all rolled within seaweed and rice.

The sesame oil used was very fragrant too.

Not sure about you, but I somehow always enjoy original Ramyeon at bunsik because they just prepare it better (than when I cook at home).

Their Original Ramyeon ($9.80) had such as flavourful soup base, spicy and addictive at the same time.

Also, it arrived piping hot served in the traditional container, making this one of my favourite renditions in recent times.

Nana Bunsik also puts great emphasis on the quality of its kimchi (they also sell jars of it), which is entirely handmade, showcasing their commitment to authenticity and quality.

Quite an under-rated Korean eatery to explore.
