In one fell swoop, the team behind homegrown Korean fried chicken joint Chicken Up introduces two on-trend cuisines to Korea-town on Tanjong Pagar Road. In the day, The dabang dishes out Aussie-style brunch plates with a Korean accent. Specialties include kimchi- and bulgogi-filled panini ($12), potato twists, and bingsus ($25) that take their cues from monstrous Aussie cake shakes.
After 5pm, the menu turns K-Mexican, with more kimchi on fries ($18), as well as bulgogi in melted quesadillas ($12) and over bean-and-leaf salads. With an industrial look that fuels its drinking hole ambitions, Don't Tell Mama's booze menu distinguishes itself with its soju and Hite beer offerings, slushie cocktails like the Bloody Mama, and lychee ($10), watermelon-chilli, mango, and blueberry margaritas.
