Best Bukit Timah Korean food places 

While some people call Tanjong Pagar a mini Koreatown, Bukit Timah is the real K-town to me. Having lived in that area for almost my entire life, I’ve seen more and more Korean food spots pop up in recent years. Whether you’re looking for Korean fried chicken, K-BBQ, or just a pot of piping hot army stew, my hood has it all. Check out our list of the best Bukit Timah Korean food spots to try the next time your cravings strike!

Go for one of their signature dishes, Jjamppong ($17++), a bowl of red-hot goodness filled to the brim with seafood.
