Looking for a Korean BBQ restaurant for a night’s out with your friends in Singapore and cannot decide which one to go to? This is exactly the kind of headache I have as well whenever hubs and I are thinking of which Korean BBQ restaurant is a good one to visit. I have visited quite a few so I decided to share my experience of these restaurants with you! I am not one of those professional foodie bloggers so pardon my amateurish take on them! In the meantime, sit back and let me share with you all the sizzling goodness at these restaurants~! ☆ミ(o*・ω・)ノ

Korean BBQ Restaurants at Tanjong Pagar

CHARIM Korean BBQ

Having been to so many Korean BBQ restaurants in Singapore, CHARIM Korean BBQ is hands-down the best we have ever been to. Not only was the meat of good quality, service was top-notch as well. Even their side dishes were amazing. If you want me to compare it with O.BBa BBQ, I definitely recommend you to visit CHARIM Korean BBQ instead.

Hyang Yeon BBQ 3 (Peck Seah)

Hyang Yeon BBQ 3 is not located on the “Korean BBQ street” at Tanjong Pagar Road but is at Peck Seah Street instead. The restaurant has a few unique points about its service and food, making it one of the better Korean BBQ restaurants we have been to. The restaurant is also rather popular for dinners so remember to make your reservation!

O.BBa BBQ

O.BBa BBQ is one of the most popular Korean BBQ restaurants in Singapore. So hubs and I decided to check it out to see if it lives up to its expectations since our workplaces are just within the area. Sadly, we failed at our first attempt as we totally did not expect a super long queue! Our second attempt was a success and I can only say, it was all worth it.

Sin Manbok

Sin Manbok appealed to us with its over 1K reviews and 4.6 stars rating. Even O.BBa BBQ doesn’t have this kind of rating! The most memorable thing about Sin Manbok is the amount of complimentary items they served to our table. Haha! (´・ᴗ・ ` ) If you are in Tanjong Pagar and looking for a Korean BBQ that is open for lunch and until late (3 AM!), do consider Sin Manbok.

Korean BBQ Restaurants in Town

SSAK3 Bras Basah

For an affordable Korean BBQ in town to curb your cravings, you might want to consider checking out SSAK3 Bras Basah. Hubs and I visited this restaurant when we were on a staycation nearby and wanted something that was value for money. This restaurant did not disappoint in terms of price and it is definitely the cheapest Korean BBQ we had in Singapore

Wang Dae Bak Pocha Korean BBQ

Amoy Street has A LOT of Korean BBQ restaurants and you should definitely visit Wang Dae Bak Pocha! Not only does it have quality meat, but the interior is decorated in such a nostalgic way that it feels like you are dining in an olden Korean street alley!

90 Minutes

90 Minutes restaurant has a unique concept that is rarely seen in Singapore and that is a tteokbokki hotpot buffet. If you are a die-hard tteokbokki lover, this is the place for you. Not only do you have a free flow of tteokbokki, but there are a lot of other ingredients you can add to it like a hotpot! For a super affordable price, you definitely MUST check out this place when in town!

Gyu-Kaku

After so much Korean BBQ, how about trying Japanese BBQ in Singapore? Fun fact but it was actually our first time having Japanese BBQ and we chose to visit Gyu-Kaku at Marina Square to try it out. Be sure to try out the Karubis if you don’t know what to order!
