Best Korean BBQ in Singapore
Korean BBQ
The glory of Korean BBQ lies in grilling and consuming marinated meats in one hand, while chugging down a glass of soju every now and then. Settle for nothing mediocre and grab your best mates down to try one (or all) of these 11 best Korean BBQ in Singapore.

1. Bornga

With two outlets at Vivo City and Star Vista, Bornga is a Korean BBQ concept led by celebrity chef Jon Won Paik, whose portrait graces the front of his restaurants. Its dedication to deliver an authentic Korean dining experience is shown through the patient guidance of the staff who advises diners how to consume the meat the Korean way. First, wrap the grilled meat within the inner folds of the ssamcheban vegetable, then add scallions or soy bean paste before eating it at one go. A must-try signature, Woo Samgyup ($28 for 200 grams), is essentially thinly sliced beef marinated in a unique sauce that retains the meat’s natural color and taste. However, do take note that the meat choices encompass mostly beef and a limited selection of pork. The Star Vista, 1 Vista Exchange Green #02-24 Singapore 138617 (Image: OpenRice user hoohuiqin)
