7-Eleven Korean food
7-Eleven has been upping their game as of late, with their recent launches of halal instant fried rice and ready-to-eat dan dan mian. This month, they’ve rolled out a whole slew of Korean food offerings that go beyond the usual onigiri and sandwiches, with everything affordably priced below $6.
A new addition this year is the Gilgeori Toast Sandwich ($3.60), AKA Korean Street Toast. The convenience stall’s rendition features onion omelette and ham with shredded cabbage, drizzled with a smoky BBQ sauce, mayo, and ketchup, tucked between two slices of toasted bread. The savoury breakfast sandwich is made without added preservatives, too!
There’s also Samgyetang ($5.50), AKA Korean Ginseng Chicken Soup, another new item in the lineup. Perfect for rainy days, this ready-to-eat meal comes with succulent chicken thigh boiled in a savoury broth with jujube, sticky rice, and American ginseng. It’s served with a side of short-grain rice—just like how you’d enjoy your ginseng soup at a Korean restaurant.
The popular Jajangmyeon ($4.20) from last year makes a comeback, too! Slurp up QQ egg noodles topped with chunjang sauce, which is a special black bean sauce imported from Korea, garnished with chopped spring onions for freshness.
Another good ol’ favourite is the Korean Spicy Rice Cakes ($3.20), or most commonly known as tteokbokki. This classic street snack is cooked with gochujang sauce for a sweet and spicy flavour. Don’t miss this deal: you can snag $0.50 off your tteokbokki when you purchase it with your Samyetang, Gilgeori Toast Sandwich, or Yangnyeon Chicken Wrap from now till 26 April 2022!
While you’re at your nearest 7-Eleven outlet, you can also try their aesthetic-looking Banana Latte or Iced Banana Milk. Watch our TikTok video to see what we thought of it!
In the meantime, keep your eyes peeled on the official 7–Eleven Singapore Facebook page so you don’t miss out on their latest launches.
