15 Best Korean BBQ Restaurants in Singapore

I’m constantly searching for authentic restaurants to satisfy my Korean food cravings. I love classic bibimbap as well as spicy and cheesy tteokbokki, but nothing beats a decent Korean BBQ.

Fellow Korean food lovers, don’t let Phase 2 dining restrictions keep you from digging into succulent grilled meats with friends. While keeping in mind that only a maximum of five diners is allowed per table, here’s a list of 15 Korean BBQ restaurants in Singapore where you can get your KBBQ fix. We’ve also included a small note of what to expect from your favourite Korean BBQ joint, now that buffet setups aren’t allowed during Phase 2.

Ask any fan of Korean BBQ in Singapore about their favourite joint and you’re likely to hear Super Star K.

This restaurant reminds me of those ajumma–operated joints located along the alleyways in downtown Seoul, especially those in Myeongdong; you’ll just eat and leave, smelling of charred meat bits.

Meats here come in pretty decent quality cuts (no fancy stuff though) like Seasoned Beef Ribs (S$36) and Pork Belly (S$19), and they are also quite reasonably priced.

If you aren’t a heavy eater, Super Star K is a better alternative compared to the all-you-can-eat buffets. Servers also help to grill the meats while the individual table vents reduce smoke from the grills.

Phase 2 Dining-in Considerations: Business resumes for this popular Korean BBQ joint, with menu items beings delivered straight to your table. However, they also have a delivery menu, which started since the ‘Circuit Breaker’ period, which you can find more information about here.

2. I’m KIM Korean BBQ

Credit

Located at SOTA (School Of The Arts), this no-frills I’m Kim Korean BBQ joint offers an affordable buffet selection—the signature volcano chicken is a must-try, along with the multitude of other meats.

Lost? Just keep an eye out for the cheery caricature resembling Winter Sonata’s legendary actor, Bae Yong Joon.

Buffet lunch prices start from S$14.90++ (weekdays) and S$24.90++ (weekends), while dinner ranges from S$24.90++ (weekdays) to S$25.90++ (weekends).

Reservations are recommended as this place is popular for its crazy buffet prices, plus the influx of hungry students after a long day at school.

Phase 2 Dining-in Considerations: As this Korean BBQ place is constantly packed, it’s wise to book ahead of time. It’s also one of the more wallet-friendly places for a Korean BBQ meal with friends. In place of their buffet line, they’re tweaking their service to table service, where you’ll be able to place your order with their servers.

I’m Kim Korean BBQ: 1 Zubir Said Drive, School of The Arts, #01-04, Singapore 227968 | Tel: +65 6238 7218 | Opening Hours: 11.30am – 3.30pm & 5.30pm – 10.30pm (Daily) | Facebook | Instagram | Website

Although Nanta Korean BBQ positions itself as an eatery delivering a modern Korean culinary experience, the traditional elements of a Korean meat BBQ still exist.

Compared to other joints, there is a significantly larger number of Korean expatriate patrons who dine here, which means it’s bound to be authentic.

A must-try is the popular Cheese Deng-galbi (S$59) set which comes with spicy pork spare ribs and melted mozzarella cheese on a sizzling hot plate.

Don’t worry, you can also adjust your spicy level from BBQ Mild to Spicy or Hot Spicy. It’s all the rage in Seoul, and you won’t be disappointed.

Phase 2 Dining-in Considerations: Nanta Korean BBQ serves BBQ sets with a minimum of two portions per order, which will be served to diners at their table.

Nanta Korean BBQ: 175 Thomson Road, #01-175 /01-177, Singapore 307624 | Tel: +65 6258 1391 | Opening Hours: 11.30am – 3pm & 5.30pm – 11pm (Daily) | Facebook

This is another Korean joint which offers a good value buffet at S$14.90++ for lunch and S$24.90++ for dinner. Opened by the same Korean owner of Nanta BBQ, K.Cook has a good open-air ambience (not the usual cramped ghetto sort).

If you dread the burnt stench after every BBQ session, do request to be seated outdoors. With only a basic selection of BBQ meats and Korean dishes, one can’t complain given the price point and convenient location.

Phase 2 Dining-in Considerations: While K.Cook Korean BBQ Buffet is now open again for dining-in, they’ve also established a take-away menu for those who still prefer to dine in the comfort of home. For those who want to dine-in at their restaurant, can certainly do so, but do take note that the buffet line will be replaced by table service during Phase 2.

K.Cook Korean BBQ Buffet: 181 Orchard Road, Orchard Central, #07-01, Singapore 238896 | Tel: +65 6884 7282 | Opening Hours: 11.30am – 3pm & 4pm – 10pm (Daily) | Facebook

Ssikkek Korean BBQ is a meat-lover’s dream come true—there’s so much meat available! The buffet is extremely popular at just S$22++ per adult.

The Tanjong Pagar outlet tends to have long queues and reservations are recommended. Otherwise, do check out the Novena outlet (which is also unfortunately equally crowded). Eating time is limited to two hours per table when you place a booking.

Be prepared to leave smelling like someone stuffed some BBQ pork belly down your shirt but hey, Febreeze is conveniently located by the exit for a spritz.

Phase 2 Dining-in Considerations: Ssikkek Korean BBQ has come up with a buffet menu as a solution to the disallowance of buffet line set-ups in restaurants during this phase. However, that only means better service for diners, as they minimise close proximity with other diners and you don’t have to spend time queuing to pile your plate with ingredients!

Ssikkek Korean BBQ: 101 Thomson Road, #B1-15, Singapore 307591 | Tel: +65 6225 6964 | Opening Hours: 11.30am – 2.30pm & 5pm – 10.30pm (Mon to Fri), 11.30am – 10.30pm (Sat & Sun) | Facebook

6. 2D1N Soju Bang

Many people confuse 2D1N Soju Bang with Ssikkek, but 2D1N Soju Bang is the sister restaurant of Ssikkek located just downstairs (they have the same owner).

2D1N Soju Bang, however, offers an a la carte Korean BBQ selection instead of the usual buffet option, along with other Korean dishes like Stir-fried Ocellated Octopus ($28) and Seafood & Chives Pancake ($20). 

ADVERTISING

Hey, who doesn’t love options right?

Phase 2 Dining-in Considerations: Since October 2019, 2D1N Soju Bang has implemented a BBQ Buffet Menu that allows diners to order while still at their table. This menu seems to still be rotation according to their Facebook page, and the best part? It’s only S$25++ per person on weekdays and S$27++ per person on weekends!

2D1N Soju Bang: 44-46 Tanjong Pagar Road, Singapore 088465 | Tel: +65 6227 6033 | Opening Hours: 11.30am – 2.30pm & 5pm – 3am (Daily) | Facebook

7. Chang Korean BBQ Restaurant

One of the more pricey Korean BBQ joints in town but with really awesome premium cuts like Wagyu Ribeye (S$52) and Kurobuta Belly (S$37), Chang Korean BBQ Restaurant has since relocated to Loewen Road.

The meats have beautiful marbling and the charcoal grill gives them a delectable smoky taste. If you love good service, this is the place where the staff proactively do all the cooking for you. So all you have to do is eat till you drop.

Phase 2 Dining-in Considerations: You can now enjoy the premium cuts of juicy meat that Chang Korean BBQ Restaurant consistently offers by ordering their takeaway and delivery menu. Otherwise, gather your family or friends of up to a maximum of five people and dine-in at their restaurant with table service.

Chang Korean BBQ Restaurant: 71 Loewen Road, #01-01, Singapore 248847 | Tel: +65 6473 9005 | Opening Hours: 12pm – 3pm & 6pm – 10pm (Sun to Thu), 12pm – 3pm & 6pm – 10.30pm (Fri & Sat) | Facebook | Website

8. Kim’s Family Food

Kim’s Family Food offers a rather authentic Korean BBQ experience with its extensive menu. Although the menu selection is pretty big, they also offer BBQ sets so you don’t have to pull out your hair thinking of what to order.

Credit

Do opt for the Meat Platter Set (S$40) which comes with beef short ribs, marinated pork collar and belly if you are going for the BBQ as it’s sufficient to feed two hungry adults. The family-style restaurant also offers other dishes like a comforting bowl of oxtail stew and good ol’ spicy kimchi pancakes.

Phase 2 Dining-in Considerations: You’ll still be able to enjoy the soothing grilling sounds of tender meats at this neighbourhood Korean restaurant in Bukit Timah. The menu retains its table service ordering, but just remember, only five people per table!

Kim’s Family Food: 17 Lorong Kilat, Kilat Court, #01-06, Singapore 598139 | Tel: +65 6774 4643 | Opening Hours: 12pm – 2.3op0 & 5pm – 10pm (Daily) | Facebook

9. Eight Korean BBQ

An American-concept Korean BBQ, Eight Korean BBQ is famed for their 8 Colours Set (S$98), which features eight differently flavoured Kurobuta pork belly pieces in flavours like curry, miso, garlic and wine.

This set feeds about four people and also includes free banchan (appetisers). With a range of choices like Japanese Wagyu and Argentinian Grass-fed beef, cosy broths and fresh seafood, Eight Korean BBQ is more of a contemporary choice at Clarke Quay.

Phase 2 Dining-in Considerations: Apart from their well-loved BBQ, they now also have delivery options for you to enjoy right at home. If not, enjoy their table service where you can order and they’ll serve and grill the meats for you as well! Do take note, though, they have also imposed a two-hour time limit for dining-in.

Eight Korean BBQ: 6 Eu Tong Sen Street, The Central, #02-79/90, Singapore 059817 | Tel: +65 8692 1188 | Opening Hours: 11.30am – 2.30pm & 5.30pm – 10.30pm (Mon to Fri), 11.30am – 10.30pm (Sat & Sun) | Facebook | Website

10. Guiga Korean BBQ Restaurant

The BBQ meats at Guiga Korean BBQ Restaurant promise to satisfy even the most begrudging customer. To top things off, the restaurant’s interior is nicely decorated complete with fairy lights, making it really inviting with a very Korean feel.

The ventilation is not the best, so do expect to leave smelling smoky!

The staff help to barbecue your meats to perfection which is fantastic for lazy folks out there. I definitely recommend the Barbecued Beef (S$30), Spicy Beef Soup (S$15) and Kimchi Pancake (S$18). From experience, their dishes never lack in flavour and the meats are always well-marinated.

Phase 2 Dining-in Considerations: Since the start of the ‘Circuit Breaker’ period, Guiga Korean BBQ Restaurant introduced a takeaway/delivery menu that even includes BBQ sets from just S$55! Dining-in has also resumed, with table service available for diners’ comfort and safety.

Guiga Korean BBQ Restaurant: 134 Tanjong Pagar Road, Singapore 088538 | Tel: +65 6221 3001 | Opening Hours: 11am – 3pm & 5pm – 12am (Mon to Thu), 11am – 3pm & 5pm – 2am (Fri), 11am – 2am (Sat), 11am – 12am (Sun) | Facebook

11. Hansik Korean Restaurant

Hansik Korean Restaurant is an immensely popular restaurant at Heartland Mall and it serves both BBQ and other Korean dishes on a family-style menu. If you do choose to head there, be warned that there will be throngs of people queuing outside.

The must-tries at this restaurant include the Boneless Beef Rib (S$38/100g), Green Tea Pork Belly (S$23/200g) and Ginseng Chicken Soup (S$23). The Green Tea Pork Belly was indeed unique and would make for a delicious twist to your usual Korean BBQ experience.

Phase 2 Dining-in Considerations: This heartland Korean BBQ restaurant is certainly a hit with the neighbourhood, and is now able to seat families and friends of up to five persons per table. Like many other Korean BBQ restaurants in this list so far, they also provide table service for this period.

However, if you have more than five members living at home and still want to enjoy their appetising spread, they are available for delivery on Grabfood!

Hansik Korean Restaurant: 205 Hougang Street 21, Heartland Mall-Kovan, #02-00, Singapore 530205 | Tel: +65 6288 2448 | Opening Hours: 11am – 10pm (Daily) | Facebook

12. Chowon Garden

Situated a stone’s throw away from Tanjong Pagar’s ‘Korean Town’, Chowon Garden offers its customers a more tranquil setting for them to enjoy their BBQ meats and sojus.

This BBQ restaurant is especially known for its gopchang (pig intestines) but apart from the brilliant BBQ meats, it also offers several favourites like Kimchi Fried Rice (S$13) which comes topped with a sunny-side up peppered with toasted sesame seeds.

Phase 2 Dining-in Considerations: Although Chowon Garden is open for dine-in, they have certainly jumped on the delivery/takeway bandwagon and are offering a wide selection of scrumptious traditional Korean fare. Their Pork BBQ Set is only S$100 and there’s even a 20% off the bill for takeaway orders.

Chowon Garden: 2 Peck Seah Street, Singapore 079305 | Tel: +65 6225 1317 | Opening Hours: 11.30am – 2.30pm & 5.30pm – 10pm (Mon to Sat), 5.30pm – 10pm (Sun) | Facebook

13. Wang Dae Bak Korean BBQ

Credit

Dinnertime is prime time at Wang Dae Bak Korean BBQ on Amoy Street, so it would be good to make a reservation before you head over! Apart from the cosy interior and helpful staff, the barbecued meats also deserve a mention.

The Marinated Pork Shoulder Loin (S$18) and Marinated Prime Rib (S$28) alike were chewy and very juicy. The barbecued meats owed much of their flavour to the strong burning charcoal, which was allowed us to cook them to the perfect doneness.

Phase 2 Dine-in Considerations: As one of the most popular Korean BBQ places in Singapore, they are welcoming back the crowd for dine-in with a 15% discount off their Charcoal BBQ Lunch (with table service, of course). But to cater to every one of their fans, they have also set up a delivery service, which includes BBQ Meat Kits (from S$48) with uncooked ingredients so you can cook their marinated meats as you like at home!

Wang Dae Bak Korean BBQ: 98 Amoy Street, Singapore 069918 | Tel: +65 6226 0450 | Opening Hours: 10.30am – 2.30pm & 5.30pm – 10.30pm (Daily) | Facebook | Website

14. Seorae Korean Charcoal BBQ

Credit

Many may not know this, but Seorae Galmaegi was established in South Korea in April 2007 and started as the leading brand for pork skirt meat. Later in December 2015, they opened their first barbecue outlet in Plaza Singapura.

Fast-forward to today, and Seorae Korean Charcoal BBQ is known locally for its high-grade cuts of meat and a wide variety of a la carte dishes, from stews to single-portioned Korean meal sets.

Credit

They’re notably famous for their signature Galmaegisal (S$24.90), US pork skirt meat marinated with authentic Korean spices, as well as La Galbi (S$29.90), US prime beef short-ribs cut across the bones. It’s marinated overnight and grilled till well-done and has even been featured on CNN’s ‘Top 50 World Most Delicious Food’!

Phase 2 Dining-in Considerations: As the restaurant is now open for dine-in, they are serving diners with table service. However, do take note that they have temporarily suspended their reservations and only accept walk-ins during this period. But what is more appealing is that anyone can enjoy the same premium meats delivered straight to their homes.

They have Bundle Deals (from S$48) as well as their Char-grilled Meat selection (from S$15.90), which come to you raw. The meats also come with free banchan (kimchi, potato, and salad), and Gochujang dipping sauce.

Seorae Korean Charcoal BBQ: 68 Orchard Road, Plaza Singapura, #02-01, Singapore 238839 | Tel: +65 9181 2709​ | Opening Hours: 11.30am – 10pm (Sun to Thu), 11.30am – 11pm (Fri & Sat) | Facebook | Instagram | Website

15. Ju Shin Jung Korean Restaurant

Credit

The spacious dining area of Ju Shin Jing Korean Restaurant makes it very popular with big crowds and for groups that are celebrating birthdays. As such, their menu caters to larger groups, with BBQ Sets starting from S$130++.

These sets are customisable, as in diners can choose from a variety of accompanying soups and side dish, and it even comes with one bottle of Korean rice wine per set!

Alternatively, you can order a la carte meat—both raw and marinated—so everyone at the table can get what they’re craving for. Be sure to complement the meal with their tantalising range of sides such as Pajeon (Seafood and Spring Onion Korean Pancake) (S$20) and Topokki (Stir-fried Rice Cake With Seafood) (S$25).

Phase 2 Dining-in Considerations: Here, you can get the servers to not only serve you at your table, but they’ll graciously grill your meat for you too! If you already have a portable grill at home, you can easily order delivery from Ju Shin Jing Korean Restaurant, with Takeaway Sets starting from S$90 and BBQ Sets from S$138.

Ju Shin Jung Korean Restaurant: 11 Unity Street, Robertson Walk, #01-30, Singapore 237995 | Tel: +65 6235 6787 | Opening Hours: 12pm – 3pm & 6pm – 11.30pm (Daily) | Facebook | Website

The staff serve quickly and change our side dishes when requested. The food was great! Huge portion of beef at affordable price. The beef is tender and soft. Which was good and the sauce was savoury.

“Stumbled along this place and was glad we took the leap of faith. Despite the long waiting time and small restaurant size, was not disappointed by the BBQ meat and the sides as well. For each order of meat entitles you to a free serving of steam egg. Ordered King sized beef ribs ($35). Meat was soft and tender. Seasoning was nice but Koreans do like their seasoning to be slightly sweet. The salted pork neck meat ($18) was tasty but nothing to rave about. Was satisfied that it doesn’t have a very strong pork taste. Seafood pancake ($26) was a pleasant surprise and would encourage customers to order this too! Overall was very satisfied with the food here and will definitely return for more.”

The restaurant has been started as an idea of Big Mama who was a former maths and science teacher. She decided to utilize her experience in cooking Korean food to serve Korean students studying in Singapore. She has succeeded in attracting customers from different backgrounds, indeed.

Highlights

  • A place to have one of the best Dakgalbi in Singapore: It is hard to find a Korean restaurant serving Dakgalbi in town. Fortunately, Big Mama offers Dakgalbi as one of its two signature dishes. Tender chicken chunks, vegetables, rice cake, sweet potato, and spicy sauce are included as ingredients, pan-fried on the spot at your table. The dish is delicious to taste and entertaining to watch. And the best is to save a small portion of your Dakgalbi in the pan and add a bowl of rice (S$3) to be fried with the remaining foods. The fragrant fried rice will certainly satisfy both your palate and stomach.

A real gourmet adventure is the so-called Hawker Center , where you can taste any Singaporean food at a minimal price. There are hundreds of fresh food stalls, usually outdoors. In addition to the iconic dishes of Singaporean cuisine , which we have already talked about, you can try many others here. For example, oysters fried with egg, or seafood barbecue, or the unusual but delicious and extremely popular Asian ice cream.Of course, it’s a little strange for us when, for example, red beans are included in ice cream.

Of course, dining in such places is very unusual, but certainly exotic. It is difficult to navigate in so many dishes, and even more so in their unknown names. To do this, there are such a large number of pictures with images of dishes hanging in the food boxes – a hungry tourist just needs to point to the most appetizing one and name the number of his table in order to bring the prepared food there (or you will be given a stand with a number to find your table by number).

Seoul – sights of the main city of South Korea in the guide 34travel

Tourist classic

Five royal palaces of the Joseon Dynasty await the meticulous tourist in Seoul – that is, everyone who ruled the country from the 14th to the 19th centuries.It is not necessary to visit all five, the main thing is to visit two of them: Gyeongbokgung Palace (161 Sajik-ro, Jongno-gu) with a secret garden and Changdeokgung Palace (99, Yulgok-ro, Jongno-gu) , more secluded, especially beautiful in autumn. A ticket to the main palace of Gyeongbokgung costs $ 3 for an adult, $ 1.5 for youth. The palace is closed on Tuesday. You can get there by subway – Gyeongbokgung Station Line 3 (Exit 5). Do not miss the opportunity to watch the changing of the guard in national costumes (takes place every hour on the square in front of the palace).To the palace Changdeokgung the price is exactly the same and it is also easy to get to it by metro – Anguk Station Line 3 (Exit 3), walk straight from the exit for about five minutes ahead.

Another significant place in Seoul – Gwanghamun Square (76-2 Sejong-ro, Jongno-gu) – on it you will find a monument to Admiral Lee Sun Sin and the inventor of Korean writing, King Sejong.

In front of the square there is a symbol of Seoul – Cheonggyecheon stream, which is almost invisible, but especially good in summer and autumn, when lush trees turn green or yellow around, and locals arrange light festivals.Then installations are placed on the water, which light up at night and look like volumetric colored sculptures. An excellent sight!

Bukchon Hanok Village (Samcheong-dong, Jongno-gu) . Check out this folk village if you’re interested in seeing how people lived in South Korea a long time ago. It is an open-air museum of small tiled houses selling souvenirs, tea ceremonies and small museums that tell the story of the city.Very large-scale “Dudutki”.

At the moment, the prison houses a historical museum, where you can view documentary materials, wander through the spacious corridors along the former cells and see what the torture rooms used to be.

Demilitarized Zone DMZ is one of the most visited places by foreign tourists. Getting to the border with North Korea is possible only as part of an organized bus tour. From Freedom House, tourists can observe the North Korean side through binoculars. Also, depending on the chosen tour, you will have the opportunity to go down into the underground military tunnel and visit the “blue houses” of the UN. Inside them is the official border of the two countries – an invisible line dividing South and North Korea.

90,000 Gastronomic trends of 2018 | BURO.

What awaits the gastronomic world in 2018? If it is easy to follow trends in fashion and beauty, some replace others in a timely and logical manner, then the situation is different with food. It is impossible to answer in monosyllables that last year the trend was Israeli cuisine, and next year everyone will get carried away with Peruvian. A lot depends on the countries, people who bring certain products and technologies to the world market.But there are trends, and it is very interesting to track them.

Middle East, India, Mexico

The wide and vibrant cuisine of these countries, with their bold flavors and creative weaving of spices, is gaining momentum, and next year it has every chance of becoming the most popular, predicts Whole Foods. Tkhina (sesame paste), skhug (Yemeni hot sauce), za’atar (mixture of Middle Eastern herbs), curry in its wide variety, mono-cafe with tacos and churros – the guest was ready for an abundance of spices and fresh combinations.

Street Food

Now even Michelin recognizes street food in its guide. In 2016, Jang Hong Myung received his star in Singapore. A street vendor has a modest Hong Kong Soya Sauce Chicken Rice and Noodle stall where he cooks soy-sauce chicken with rice. And this is an interesting case when the first place is not the place, but the food itself. They cooked food on the street at all times, but only now it has become a public view among chefs, guides and all foodies.Fried noodles, tacos on Indian paratha (flatbread), hot dog with pork belly, famous Momofuku chicken wings, BBQ ribs with Cuban mojo (variation of salsa) – people love easy-to-eat food, hence its popularity. And desperate food fanatics are always ready to rush to Penang or Istanbul just for a noodle or fish sandwich.

Korean Food

Korean cuisine is no longer Asian cuisine, but world cuisine.In 1993, New York Times food critic Ruth Reichl wondered why Korean cuisine is not popular in the United States. Although it contains real culinary wealth: tofu, bibimbap, seafood pancakes, kimchi and other fermented vegetables. Captured and fell in love with the Korean cuisine of Americans only two decades later. Thanks to two Korean Americans, David Chang and Roy Choi, the country’s most influential chefs for the past 10 years. The first is David Chang – an important person in the New York and the American restaurant industry in general, the founder of the Momofuku empire and the creator of Lucky Peach magazine.Roy Choi is the founder of the Kogi BBQ trailer network. 300-500 people gathered in Los Angeles to try his Korean-Mexican fast food, which, thanks to its intense taste and bright combination, became an incredible discovery. In 2008, Roy Choi was named the best chef in the United States, and the film “Chef on Wheels” was made based on his story.

Bowl! Bowl! Bowl!

The boom on the bowl (“bowl” in English) happened in America.First, among the adherents of a healthy diet, vegetarians, raw foodists, athletes and vegans who fell in love with smoothies with nutritious topping (seeds, fruits, berries, herbs, nuts) from a deep plate. Today, bowling is not only the prerogative of healthy people and vegans. In a bowl, mix cereals, fiber, protein, herbs, fried vegetables and all kinds of dressings. After taking a decent portion of a balanced meal, you do not feel hungry, but you also do not feel heaviness, as after a plate of pasta. Perfect harmonious food in terms of taste and health.

Bread is back

Today any self-respecting restaurant and chef strives to bake their own bread. Chefs, bakers and even home enthusiasts are experimenting with sourdough, grinding flour using ancient grains, and reverting to older cooking techniques. If you are interested in bread more than an ordinary consumer and you are haunted by greedy curiosity, then a book has been published for you, almost a gastronomic bible about bread – Modernist Bread: The Art and Science.

Locking

Locally grown, restaurant or restaurant-grown products have been the subject of much talk over the past few years. Own vegetable gardens at restaurants are a common theme in the West. One of the founders of this idea is Dan Barber. The American chef and food theorist has opened his second Blue Hill restaurant in Stone Barnes, a science hub dedicated to promoting organic food, sustainable farming and other health benefits.All of the food Dan uses in his cooking is local grown. The bacon is smoked in a local smokehouse, and he feeds the chickens with red pepper, which gives the egg yolk a red hue. In Moscow, brothers Ivan and Sergei Berezutsky are now doing this. Their new restaurant, Twins Garden, has their own 50-hectare farm in the Kaluga region, where they grow vegetables, herbs and keep Nubian goats and fish. The rest of the restaurateurs and chefs, who cannot afford this luxury, tend to use local products.Our local chefs are also trying to adhere to this correct trend.

Fermentation

Everyone is trying to keep up with the new sixth taste “umami”, and one of the technologies that helps in this is fermentation. All processes that occur under the influence of bacteria, enzymes and fungi are called fermentation. In non-chemical terms, these are the well-known processes of fermentation and oxidation. This is not a new technology, everyone is familiar with sauerkraut and kombucha, but it is thanks to knowledge in the field of chemistry that chefs manage to surprise the gastronomic world.In Noma, pork tenderloin is used to prepare an analogue of tuna shavings for dashi broth (dashi): the tenderloin is simmered in sous-form, smoked on sawdust and sown with Aspergillus fungus. The meat is fermented and dried at the same time, and then used for shavings. By the way, a newfangled product – kombucha – has come to replace kombucha. This is a sweet and sour carbonated drink originally from China, which can already be found in craft bars and on the shelves of interesting supermarkets.

Of course, these trends don’t happen all at once.Not everything will reach the Kazakh gastronomic market, it is logical – we are just beginning our restaurant and gastronomic history. So, you won’t surprise our guest with Korean food, but you need to understand that this is a very adapted Korean cuisine. Not all chefs in our country turn to seasonality and locality, use products at the peak of their good condition, but in vain. With street food, in my opinion, we will not soon have love, here we need to remember that for the development of this direction of gastronomy, a decent flow of pedestrians and suitable places are needed.While with fermentation, some chefs are already familiar. Of all the above trends, the Kazakh guest is most ready for the Middle East today. But the good news is that we have more and more progressive chefs burning with ideas, which means that changes are just around the corner.

USA Memphis How to cook meat without burning your lawns. Memphis BBQ Championship

There are many variations on the origin of the word barbecue. It is attributed to French travelers, Spanish conquistadors, and even Indians.It was first documented in 1759 in an English newspaper. Then a Christian vicar who came from America said that the locals love to relax in nature and fry meat on a grill called “barbecue”.

The history of American barbecue has deep roots – it is known that Abraham Lincoln, a great lover of this dish, after taking office as president, organized mass festivities at which people ate fried pork ribs and proclaimed the glory of independence.The history is connected with the city of Memphis itself, which the French, Spaniards, British and even the inhabitants of the Caribbean islands managed to visit. On its territory lived the tribes of the Chickasaw Indians, who, communicating with the settlers, including, taught them the recipe for cooking meat. The Indians dried it in the hot sun, and a large number of flies were driven away from the fire with the help of smoke – the meat itself was smoked and became especially tasty.

Follow us on social networks

Subsequently, Memphis became one of the key points in the slave trade, which could not but affect the composition of the population – today African Americans make up two-thirds of the city’s population.It is possible that the recipe for the famous smoked ribs was invented by the Negro population – the white traders took the most juicy cuts of meat for themselves, and the slaves were given what was left, including the ribs. In order to somehow soften the meat, the Negroes cooked it by smoking it on the fire and it turned out to be so tasty that after a while the “recipe” was borrowed by the rest of the population. And with the adoption of independence, grilled meat has become a kind of symbol of America’s liberation from the shackles of the slave trade. This is the trick of the barbecue championship – the rallying of the whole city, because there is nothing better than putting everyone together at the same table.

In May, in Memphis, there is no escaping the aroma of fried pork, people pull their barbecues and grills out into the street, farmers put up the best products for sale, a general holiday reigns everywhere. Everyone is equal here: black and white, thin and fat, women and men, congressmen and workers from the factory. The indicator of coolness in a championship is how great you are at barbecuing.

During the days of the event, Memphis is overwhelmed with crowds of visitors. The championship is held in Tom Lee Park – 33 acres on the banks of the Mississippi River are filled with tents, vans and mobile homes, and just hand-built huts from everything that comes to hand.By the way, the competition starts here. One of them includes a competition for the best home design. As soon as people do not show their imagination: someone makes a kiosk in the form of a fire engine, others decorate a dwelling in the form of a pig, and still others turn their mini-van into a small Gothic castle.

By the way, anyone can get to the championship – you just need to buy tickets that appear on sale in advance. The price for such an event is low – from 5 to 9 dollars per day of attendance.

There are a lot of options to have fun on the territory of the Memphis May festival (of which the championship is). First, farmers from all over the state put their produce up for sale in an informal competition. Rustic delicacies can always be purchased at a low price. Secondly, games, relay races, numerous competitions, theatrical and circus performances are held on the street. But most importantly, we must not forget that Memphis is adjacent to Nashville, the cradle of country music, and therefore a huge number of musicians come to the championship, whose performances can be listened to for free.

But music is music, and first of all, it is still a barbecue championship, the prize fund of which is 100 thousand dollars. No less than 250 different teams come from all over America to play for this serious amount. Most of them carry deliberately funny and absurd names (there is even a corresponding competition): “Grunts”, “Santa-Pig”, “Pigmen” and other “Members of the Holy Swine Church”. The principle “the funnier the better” generally dominates the entire championship – everyone should have fun here.

The team captains, by the way, contrary to all prejudices, in most cases are black chefs, who are called pitmasters . The team can include representatives of any class – the mayor of a small town and a carpenter from a local factory, a well-fed owner of a car repair shop and a slender owner of a beauty salon. If they know how to roast meat better than anyone else, then the rest does not matter!

What criteria is used to determine the quality of barbecue? The participants are assessed by a special commission according to the following parameters – the taste itself, the appearance of the meat, tenderness, its presentation, aroma and temperature.There are also special contests for the best combination of spices used, the best marinade, cooking technique, and even speed.

Any experienced pit master will tell you that the ability to correctly adjust the fire and the degree of roasting of meat are indicators of the chef’s experience. Beginners can overdry, not fry, over-smoke or oversalt the dish, but this is just the beginning. Some put on a real show in front of the grill, tossing meat into the air, experiment with fire, create “special effects” with specially poured fluids to kindle the flame and change the aromas of the meat on the go.For meat lovers, this is a real gastronomic show.

How to properly cook barbecue

  • It is better to always have enough coal in stock in order to correctly calculate the degree of roasting of the meat and, if necessary, add more. This will maintain the temperature and the meat will be fried evenly – it will not dry out or burn.
  • Grease meat with sauce not earlier and not later than 10 minutes.before the start of cooking, otherwise it will either not “take”, or it will burn out and will taste bitter, killing the aroma and taste of meat.
  • In order not to interrupt the taste of meat and not to overdo it with the sauce, it is better to spread it with a special brush in an even layer.
  • Do not mix meat and vegetables with each other – peppers, tomatoes and eggplants cook faster, and therefore there is a risk of either overexposing them (and then the aroma of burnt vegetables will saturate the meat), or leave the meat undercooked. Better to put them on the grill separately.
  • Cooked meat is not eaten immediately after it is cooked. Juicy pork in the process of frying gives off a lot of juice, which will simply go to the cutting board if you try to cut it right there. The best option is to let the meat cool slightly (2-3 minutes), and then wrap it in foil, making small cuts. It will once again be saturated with juice and will be especially juicy and tender.

Foodis

Singaporeans discover any country through cooking, they are literally gourmets, so gastronomic immersion here is possible to any depth.Their imaginations quickly take on something new, preferably spiced with interesting facts or personal history. In general, wealthy local residents are tired of traditional dishes, so the leading establishments are constantly reworking and rethinking the menu. Food courts are wildly popular. The complexes, which include many small eateries, are open from early morning until late at night and offer Chinese, Malay, Indian, Vietnamese, Thai and Korean cuisines.

Smith Marine – a place where delicious chili crab is prepared

For special occasions, locals choose unusual French cuisine or establishments with 2 cherished stars.The Michelin Guide confirms the dynamics and quality of Singapore’s culinary history, with 39 restaurants listed in 2018, 5 with two stars. It is currently the highest category. Until 2017, the city boasted a very beautiful three-star establishment – Joel Robuchon (Resorts World Sentosa) , but after the death of the chef, the restaurant dropped out of the star list.

The folk trail can lead to a very unusual place where they are treated to a very democratic, even cheap, but Michelin-starred food – Hawker Chan .It looks like an ordinary cafe like McDonald’s, but has a Michelin-starred sauce for rice and noodles.

Hawker Chan serves Michelin sauce

The owner of the Hong Kong Soya Sauce Chicken Rice and Noodle , which serves rice and noodles with chicken, Cheng Hong Meng, earned a one star for a street vendor for the first time in the history of a Michelin guide. Tan Chai Seng is another chef and owner of a small street food stand that has received one Michelin star. His Hill Street Tai Hwa Pork Noodle is famous for its noodles.

Party People

In Singapore, it is customary to choose an institution based on its atmosphere, opportunities to communicate and meet new interesting people. The slogan “Make your plans come true!” every year interesting people are brought to the masses, proving by personal example that on the way to a dream a person is only hindered by his own excuses. This year, the bar manager of the famous Singapore bar Operation Dagger , Sasha Vigides ( Wijidessa ), was chosen to be such a messenger.It was her ideas that helped propel the Operation Dagger to the 19th place on the list of the 50 best bars in Asia 2018 (this year the bar was at 22nd).

Operator Dragger Bar not only offers inventive cocktails, but also a pleasant atmosphere

At this year’s landmark ceremony in May for the industry, 11 bars in Singapore were victoriously included in the top list, three topped the top five: Manhattan, Native, Atlas . With a sinking heart, guests of honor are brought to the bar 1 Altitude on the roof of the 300-meter skyscraper One Raffles Place – here you can enjoy Singapore at night, listen to fashion sets and treat yourself to a glass of the famous cocktail Singapore Sling ( Singapore Sling ).

Bar 1 Altitude awaits guests at an altitude of almost 300 meters, on the roof of the skyscraper One Raffles Place

Chinatown and national flavor

Cozy houses, shops and establishments that preserve the memory of antiquity are densely concentrated in Chinatown. The most famous architectural monument is the Temple of the Tooth of Buddha.

Singapore Chinatown, Tooth Relic Temple

In Chinatown it is easy to find both Peranakan ( Peranakan is an Indonesian (Malay) word that means “local”), and Thai dishes, they are the same, but as an alternative for vegetarians: kong ba (braised pork belly), but with a substitute for mushrooms, sweet and sour pork – from soybeans and pineapples.Be sure to try at least once the “magic mushroom” (baked portobello with ricotta cheese, spinach and pesto, seasoned with tomato sauce with basil and mozzarella) and vegetable tandoori (a mixture of fried mushrooms, eggplant, paprika, onions and tofu marinated in yogurt, chutney made from mango and rice).
Many shopkeepers are very proud of the attention of the press – they specially decorate the shop with newspaper clippings with a mention of their loved ones. The law – the longer the line from the locals, the more reliable the catering point – is valid all over the world.

The most interesting authentic cuisine is in the food courts. One of the largest is Maxwell.

But if you are interested in local, Peranakan history, take a walk on the East Coast – in the Joo Chiat – Kallang area. The Kim Chu Museum, for example, has preserved and still operates a small traditional dressmaking studio. Here, like in a house-museum, household items, unique beaded items are carefully preserved, they offer to evaluate the skills of embroiderers and join a traditional meal.

Kim Choo Peranakan Museum

With special honor, guests are served bak-chzhang (rice dumpling with minced meat, wrapped in a pandanus leaf), for dessert – three specialties. Ang ku kueh – Tortoise shell-shaped cakes with the Chinese character show, or longevity, in the center. Ondeh – Steamed tapioca cakes topped with fresh coconut flakes. One bite, and some strange piercing cream explodes inside, it is difficult to find an analogue of which in Russian, but we are talking about a liquefied “hum melaka”.For those with a sweet tooth, ongol ubi is a multi-layered multi-colored tapioca jelly with coconut.

Little Little India

In Little India, just steps from Metro Little India , is the famous wet market and food court Tekka Center . The upper floors sell everything from Bollywood music CDs to silk sarees, and downstairs a variety of edible exotics.

Tekka Market has applied to UNESCO for inclusion in the World Heritage List

The local food court is dominated by spicy and spicy Indian and halal food, with an abundance of curries and ginger, very decent and fair prices.Many guides take tourists here to gaze at the mesmerizing spectacle of making foaming tea Teh Tarik . This is the so-called “stretched” tea with milk: the seller, like a fakir, with quick and dexterous movements stretches the syrup threads in the air, saturates them with oxygen, due to which the drink is obtained with a strong thick foam. Don’t forget to try pea donuts, brown rice burger, crispy tofu steak sandwich and enchilada in Little India.

Singapore Walking

Do not be afraid of stories about the terrible heat and humidity.Almost all buildings and many pedestrian zones have a canopy or awning, many are connected by bridges, covered or ventilated crossings, all urban transport is air-conditioned.

The city is surrounded by lush greenery, much of it stands on the hills and is well ventilated. More than a third of the territory is occupied by parks (there are about 300 of them).

Singapore Botanic Garden

Singapore, true to its nickname “city in the garden”, perfectly combines the achievements of landscape art and the comfort of a bustling metropolis.For example, the recently opened hotel The Outpost in Sentosa is an oasis of tranquility and excellent service. The windows offer a marvelous view of the sea, there is an outdoor pool in the courtyard. Beautiful territory, excellent cuisine, convenient location – everything you need for the happiness of a tourist.

The Outpost Hotel – Shelter of Peace

The simplicity of a bygone era, rustic idyll and the atmosphere of Singapore of the 60s have been preserved on the Pulau Ubin Island Reserve. The motorboat will come here in 15 minutes – find an opportunity to get out to look at the kampongs, see the life of ordinary people, as they say from the plow, walk along the shore where small crabs frolic, wild boars run across the road, and the langoustine burrows have turned the soil under the palm trees into a lunar landscape …The food here is very simple and straightforward and based on seafood.

Pulau Ubin National Park

An integral part of the “green” concept is, of course, the Gardens by the Bay complex, located in the new city center – Marina Bay. It covers over one hundred hectares and consists of three coastal gardens – Bay South, Bay East and Bay Central.

Steel Trees Satay by The Bay

Even the last hardened pragmatist and skeptic cannot hide the delight of the night light musical show of trees – Garden Rhapsody .The crowns of the trees are crowned with solar panels, and this charge accumulated during the day provides 15 minutes of musical extravaganza.

OCBC Garden Rhapsody

By the way, nearby there is a cozy complex with small restaurants – Satay By the Bay , which serves all the unmistakable dishes for fresh air: sauté kebabs, seafood, grilled vegetables and traditional ice cream – ice kachang.

Family Traditions: Lunch in a Private House

We visited the food blogger Dershini ( Dhershini Winodan ) – in a beautiful and cozy house, with a well-thought-out program of an easy and sincere meeting.

Visiting food blogger Dhershini Winodan, she is very hospitable and charming.

An Indian-style meal was built around special thin pancakes baked in the form of deep vases – appoms – from a mixture of rice and corn flour.They are filled with various appetizers with eggplants, tomatoes, rice, chicken, eggs – spicy, spicy, viscous and extremely tasty.

Video master class from Dhershini Winodan: she bakes pancakes – appoms

The hostess prepares ice cream from tapioca with coconut milk and mango puree, and it would be better if she forgot about the dessert, since it is impossible to keep herself within the bounds of decency and not ask for more.

Eternal values ​​

Treasure, pearl, pride of the nation – what epithets you will not hear about the National Gallery.The complex unites two buildings – the Supreme Court, erected in 1929, and the former municipality.

The entire gallery space has been rethought in a modern format. The buildings are connected by an atrium: a transparent sloping roof, imitating a pagoda, is supported by the trunk and branches of a tree.There are water tanks on the roof, and when they are illuminated by the sun, waves seem to run on the steps of the gallery. You won’t see all the exhibits in a day or two, but this is exactly the place where you can feel the local history.

There are more than 8 thousand exhibits in the collection of the National Gallery .

About seas and corals

Making the dream of an ideal vacation come true – swimming in the sea, plunge into the world of entertainment, diving or kayaking – is easy on the beaches of Sentosa: Siloso, Tanjong and Palawan.

Siloso Beach on Sentosa Island

Imported Indonesian white sand, palm trees, turquoise clear water and a light breeze will instantly carry away all thoughts on the other side of the equator. Sunbeds are given here in exchange for a purchased drink in coastal establishments or when paying about $ 25. The entrance to the beaches is free, and the price of the rest depends solely on the method of getting to the island itself: by car $ 7, monorail $ 4.5, on foot $ 1. Showers and toilets are free. Rangers, the local police service, are constantly running on the island.You can go for a walk at night, but after 19.00 you are not allowed to swim. There is also a wild beach in Singapore, with mangroves, with no infrastructure at all – East Coast Park .

The beaches on Sentosa are the cleanest, the sea is blue-blue, and the palm trees run into the clouds
