Superstar K Korean BBQ @ Circular Road

Before I start my essay, let me just say that I’m glad to be back after a rather long hiatus mainly due to two back-to-back long vacations, followed by some unprecedented problems in life. But guess what? I’m back on Foodiepink full steam and with more determination ever to continue my Eastern Europe series… as well as…

East 8 New York Fusion Tapas + Bar @ Grand Park City Hotel

More and more, we see the concepts of tapas and fusion food colliding and East 8 is the epitome of it. When you step into the restaurant, you’ll hear a playlist of Korean songs and gorgeous covers of chart-toppers (the playlist was so awesome that we had to enquire about it after dinner)! It’s interesting that…

Foodiepink’s TOP 10 Must-Go Cafés in Seoul

I love Seoul for its café culture. It no longer boils down to the best cuppa, for me at least, but the story and character of a café that reveals what its owner may be. With dedicated café streets and countless awesome cafés in this dynamic metropolitan that retains its unique culture, I have put…

Buffet: Seasonal Taste @ The Westin Hotel

After my staycation at Westin and trying every restaurant possible in this hotel (Dinner at Cook & Brew and High-Tea at Lobby Lounge), I was left with its buffet dinner to conquer. I loved how the restaurant overlooks the Marina Bay port from the 32nd floor. Tables by the window have the best view –…

Hoho Myoll Café @ Seoul, Korea

Folks, pay attention to this one alright! This café is by far the most impressive and most memorable one I’ve ever been to. If you’re intending to café-hop in Seoul, Hoho Myoll is one stop that you mustn’t miss. It is not located at any famous café streets; in fact the nearest ‘café’ from it was Danji….

Wang Daebak Korean BBQ Restaurant @ Amoy Street

When my ex-boss said that she had found the best Korean BBQ place in Singapore – Wang Daebak, I knew I had to try. By coincidence (or not), Daebak also means awesome in Korean. I suppose there’s some truth in that! I visited the outlet at Amoy (the other one at China Square Central) and…

Thanks Nature Café [Sheep Café] @ Hongdae, Seoul

Thanks Nature Café or much better known as the sheep café was at the top of my go-to list, simply due to my adoration for sheep! Furthermore, where else could you get a cuppa with 2 fluffy white sheep frolicking beside you? The café is located at the basement of a building, so if you’re not…

“Coffee-drinking Cat” Café @ Samcheongdong, Seoul

If you happen to be afraid of cats like myself, this is a reassurance that there’re no live furry animals in this café. On the other hand, if you’re cat lover, don’t go away just yet, ‘cos this is one café that is worth a visit. The inviting storefront stands out amongst the endless options at Samcheongdong, thanks to…

Danji Café @ Seoul, Korea

This café wasn’t on our to-go list but because we were wandering about the area for the longest time ever, nit-picking at every restaurant/café we walked by, that we got so tired we eventually settled on this cosy, family-run café. The restaurant space was really small – barely accommodating 15 people, so my best friend and I had…

Mister Bossam Cafe @ Sinchon, Seoul [Korea Trip]

Near Ewha Womans University, there are many eateries and cafes that are extremely friendly to the wallet – think student-meal prices! I love Sinchon as it has my favourite waffles place (post next week) as well countless budget-friendly boutiques. We headed straight here on the first day and as it was around 10+am, many shops…

Magosaburou BBQ @ Ion Orchard

I’ve always wondered what was hiding behind the long corridor from the entrance between Jones the Grocer and another Japanese restaurant at ION, Level 4. From its posters, I could guess that they serve prime, premium beef from Japan. A quick glance at their menu, the pricing sure daunted me and urged me to back…

Togi BBQ & Salad Bar @ Triple One Somerset

Togi is one of the more popular Korean restaurants in Singapore, with their original shop at Mosque Street. With their second one at Triple One Somerset, a much more convenient location, I finally headed down to try out their authentic Korean fare. The restaurant has a modern vibe to it with traditional wooden-sandpaper partitions separating…

Big Mama Korean Restaurant @ Tiong Bahru

You’ll have no chance eating here if you walk in at 7pm on a weekday night. Yep, that’s Big Mama for you! Not exactly the most fanciful restaurant around in Tiong Bahru, Big Mama garners many diners with its hearty Korean food and reasonable price point. As you can see, their walls act as canvases to…

Korea Bistro @ Tanjong Pagar

A sister branch of the famous 2day1night, this Korea Bistro serves ala-carte dishes. Upon entering, I felt as though I was back in Korea, especially with the Korean owner sitting at the corner of the restaurant. There were 3 LCD screens playing music videos of the latest Kpop, however the audio was playing more slow…
