Food Review: Taste Of Korea At Amoy Street | New Korean Restaurant For Korean BBQ In Telok Ayer

The Place There have been a couple of new restaurant openings along Amoy Street the past few months. After Kulto and CarneTaste Of Korea (JJIN) is a month old Korean restaurant which offers Korean barbecue meats and authentic Korean dishes run by a Korean culinary team.

The shophouse setting of the restaurant is narrow and long, where each table comes equipped with its ventilation system and stove.

The Food While you can get your barbecue at Taste Of Korea, I went for the other ala carte dishes instead.

I started with the Sundubu Jeongol (S$28), my favourite tofu stew which is placed over a charcoal stove. Hearty and comforting dish with ingredients like egg, mushroom, clams and generous serving of tofu.

My favourite dish is definitely the Kimchi Pancake (S$18/medium). Very crispy texture and kimchi flavour, this is a must order.

I was curious about the Jjin Jjajang Myeon (S$15) since this dish is one of the recommended dishes on the menu. It comes with a thick black sauce of Chunjang (Korean black bean paste), and it is interesting to try this Chinese-style Korean noodle dish.

The portion is huge, and is good to share with 2-3 people. In terms of taste, I find it quite singular after a few mouths.

Skip the Sulungtang (S$15) though, ox bone soup with glass noodles and sliced beef. I am personally not a fan of the light broth, and it leans towards the bland side for me.

Rants Some hits and misses on the dishes I had.

Will I Return Again? I wouldn’t mind returning for the Korean BBQ the next time round, so it is a yes. It also helps that the ventilation of the restaurant is not bad if you are concerned about the smoky smell.
