Wrapped Lettuce at mouthful.
Bornga is a place where one can discover the whole new taste of Korean cuisine.
Born-Ga’s fresh vegetable wraps. Enjoying the food and yet staying healthy at the same time. The creation of Korean Executive Chef and Chief Executive Officer Jong Won Paik.
Instead of doing the barbequing ourselves, this time round I have opted for Dwaeji Gochujang Barbecue.
This dish prepared and cooked in the kitchen before serving so we
don’t have to smell like BBQ after the meal.
These sliced of marinated pork belly fire grilled creating a flavourful spicy fiery stir fry dish goes well with the generous serving of fresh lettuces.
There were seven variety of side dishes (Korean Banchan) which are refilliable The side dishes comprising of various types of marinated vegetables in different texture, taste and colour.
Seven kinds of side dishes as follows:
(Left to Right)
1. Stir-fried Eggplants (Gaji Bokkeum)
2. Steamed shishito peppers (Ggwari Gochu Jjim)
3. Simple Korean Seasoned Spinach Salad( Sigeumchi Namul)
4. Mung Bean Sprout Salad (Sukju Namul Muchim)
(Left to Right)
1. Stir fry dried strips squid ( Ojingeochae Bokkeum)
2. Pickled Zucchini (Oi-Sobagi)
3 .Fresh Napa Korean Kimchi Salad (Baechu Geotjeori)
I only requested one additional refill for the side dish which is the stir fry dried strips squid.
These pork slices smothered in spicy, sweet sauce and fire grilled smokiness are just irresistible. The pork are well marinated that you don’t require additional chilli sauce to go along with the dish.
Dwaeji Gochujang Barbecue Priced at S$36++.
Combined with these belly pork slices are thinly sliced onions, spring onion stalks and leeks which complemented with the lettuce wraps.
At the end of the meal, we received a complimentary drink “Omija”. Also known as five flavour berry tea. Believed to have medicinal values. This Omija served in a small bowl with crushed ice.
This tea has distinctive five taste. Sour taste to protect the liver while the sweetness to improve the function of the spleen and stomach. Spicy or pungent to protect the lung while the bitter taste strengthen the heart and the salty taste to protect the kidney and bladder.
A reasonable size plate of grilled pork belly slices and six side dishes are sufficient enough for a hearty lunch meal.
Further more, the waiting staff are very helpful and courteous.
