The best Korean BBQ restaurants in Singapore

Don't be up in our grill, when it comes to DIY food we love our Korean BBQ as much as steamboat dinners

By Huang Junyi

There are some things Singaporean will never tire off – hawker food, the communal steamboat and Korean BBQ. So what if the smoky smell lingers till the end of the work day? Here's the places to hit for some authentic Korean barbecue fare. 

RECOMMENDED: The best Korean fried chicken wings in Singapore and the best hawker centres in Singapore

E!ght Korean BBQ

Restaurants Korean Raffles Place

Named after its eight selections of sauces, E!ght is famous for its unique premium flavoured pork bellies. Choose from red pepper paste, miso paste, wine, garlic, herb, ginseng, curry and original but get their the wine flavoured pork belly for something different and the red pepper paste is surprisingly a crowd favourite. Soup is complimentary with your meat orders, and it comes in a generous portions that can be rather filling. Note that making reservations are highly recommended as this place can get quite busy.

Seorae Galmaegi

Restaurants Orchard

You can spot this place from a mile away with the snaking queues – and why? People are squeezing to get a spot in this restaurant for a taste of their unique pork skirt meat. First ever Korean restaurant to introduce this, Seorae has earned its recognition. It also provides cheese rings for dipping sizzling meats into a rich cheesy dip. Bliss.



Restaurants Korean Buona Vista

This high-end Korean BBQ might get some stick being a bit pricey but they compensate with premium service and ingredients used. You will be blown away by the selection of side dishes on your table, ranging from sauteed bean sprouts to seaweed soup. On top of the usual grilled meat, try its signature meat Woo Samyup – thin grilled beef slices will melt in your mouth. End your meal with the complimentary dessert, hey if it's complimentary...


Restaurants Korean Chinatown

Head down to Pujim for a premium meaty feast. This three-month-old restaurant has been bustling with customers ever since it opened its doors. Satisfied customers return for another round of high quality marbled meat – they are known for the premium striploin and ribeye. 



Restaurants Korean Tanjong Pagar

Besides really tasty black bean noodles, O.BBA sure knows how to work the grills too when it comes to meat. Get the Yuk Hwe, a Korean version of beef tartare mixed in a medley of ingredients that give a strong garlic aftertaste – stay clear if you're a garlic hater!


Restaurants Korean River Valley

The key word here is cheese. If you love cheese on all yout meats, this cheesy barbecue joint will satify you every craving. Get their cheese Deng-galbi ($50) for a heavier meal option and try the galbi tang ($25) for something lighter. 


Superstar K

Restaurants Korean Chinatown

No stranger to the Korean BBQ scene here, Superstar K has always been popular with the younger crowd. This hassle-free and easy breezy restaurant delivers promptly without much waiting time. Order the seasoned and super tender king-sized beef rib ($36) and pair it with their beef bone soup ($15) for the ultimate beefed up meal.


Restaurants Korean City Hall

Kkongdon translates to 'reasonably priced ' and this barbecue joint is worth a visit with its affordable selections of meat. Set lunches and dinners are priced at $12 and $18 respectively so you can make Korean BBQ a more-than-once-a-week affair.


2D1N Soju Bang

Restaurants Korean Chinatown

The Korean barbecue joint, 2D1N is known for its family-friendly and affordable grilled meats. While you're at it, remember to drop some Soju Bombs with your fam or family on a chill night out. Our favourite? The beef short ribs paired with the scorching Soju burn down the throat. 

Wang Dae Bak

Restaurants Korean Tanjong Pagar

Here you'll learn that their secret to grilling succulent meat is the way they stick to charcoal barbeque grills instead of the conventional electrical sets you see in most Korean BBQ restaurants. A plus point, enjoy their free-flow complimentary egg ring as you enjoy it with your meat.
