Korean BBQ buffets and restaurants in Singapore


I am not sure about you, but I definitely am a sucker for sappy Korean romcoms. I always end up with baggy eyes and a rumbling tummy from pulling all-nighters to binge-watch the shows. This in turn makes me go on a crazy Korean feast the next day, usually at a Korean BBQ buffet restaurant. For those of you who love to eat Korean food after watching K-dramas, check out this list of 16 places that serve Korean BBQ buffets!


1. I’m Kim Korean BBQ


I'm Kim Korean BBQ

Located just a few minutes’ walks away from Dhoby Ghaut MRT Station, I’m Kim Korean BBQ is often bustling with hungry people during lunch. Among their array of marinated meat, a few popular picks would be their spicy volcano chicken and succulent beef. There is also a wide variety of side dishes available, including kimchi soup, tteokbokki, and a self-serve salad bar. Be sure to help yourself to a generous serving of kimchi pancake, as it often runs out within minutes of being refilled!

The buffet goes at $15.90++ per person for a weekday lunch, and $25.90++ for weekends and public holidays. Dinner goes at $25.90++ from  Monday to Thursday, and $26.90++ from Friday to Sunday, including public holidays.

Michin Korean BBQ And Hotpot is another KBBQ joint that’s tucked away in a residential coffee shop. The KBBQ and hotpot buffet is $17.80. There are plenty of meat options to grill up and enjoy, like the Soya Chicken Leg, Marinated Beef Slices, and Garlic Pork Collar. The meats are high quality and marinated well.

Michin Korean BBQ and Hotpot

Six soup bases are available at Michin. Some options are Mala, Tom Yum, and Kimchi. The kimchi base helps to impart powerful flavours into the seafood ingredients but is a little bit overpowering for the marinated meat. Even though the buffet is under $20, you can still get tons of seafood, such as mussels, prawns, and scallops. It’s definitely a worthwhile deal.

There’s the classic variant we all know and love, thinner varieties, ones stuffed with cheese, pumpkin paste, and some with sweet potato filling! There’s a range of sauces for you to mix and match according to your preference.

There are also tons of other sides, like a free flow of Korean fishcakes on sticks, fried and battered meat, kimchi fried rice and more!
