Time Out says

The newly-opened restaurant, a well-known Korean BBQ chain in Korea, has proven to be extremely popular among Singaporeans, attracting long queues outside its Boon Tat outlet every day. Though it’s a KBBQ restaurant, the main draw here is its Busan-style gukbap, or pork and rice soup ($21) – a rare find in Singapore. Um Yong Baek’s Busan-style gukbap consists of rice and a mixture of pork cuts (cheek, collar, and belly), submerged in a clear broth. However, it’s currently only available for lunch. Only Jeju-style BBQ (also a rare find in Singapore) is available for dinner, along with other mains like stews and cold noodles. Either way, expect a queue.
