Something other than tremendously delightful Korean passage consistently returns me to more joyful, more straightforward occasions—when the only thing I needed to stress over was which city to visit straight away.

8. Jangsu Korean BBQ

Fairly a secret diamond, there hasn't been a lot going around about this modest Korean-run foundation along with Teck Chye Patio. I'll give you access on somewhat private—until a Korean companion of mine as of late recommended Jangsu Korean BBQ to me, I hadn't known about the spot by the same token. It begins with an ahjumma's hello as I venture into Jangsu—their first client of the day, as it turns out. Jjampong (S$15) and Bibim Naengmyeon (S$13) are must-orders in my books whenever I visit Korean foundations, while a companion of mine depends on Jangsu's grilled meats.
We choose the Soy Sauce Chicken (S$19) and Chilli Pork Stomach (S$22), both cooked right at our tables on a hot flame broil. In case you're proposing to go all out for a full-bodied dinner, bar-b-que sets of different levels are accessible as well. Set A (S$68) comprises meat midsection, hamburger sirloin, meat top edge, steamed egg, and soup decision. For more reasonable options, Set B and Set C go at S$57 each, both qualifying you for meat sirloin, pork shoulder, pork midsection, chicken, steamed egg and a decision of soup; with the solitary contrast between the two lies in the chicken's sauce—soy or zesty.
