Previously a gem exclusive only to Bukit Timah, popular Korean joint Myung Ga II has opened a second location in none other than Tanjong Pagar, heating up the competition among the many players in the Korean eatery game there.

For those of you who are unfamiliar with the name, Myung Ga started as Ming Jia (名家) Korean Food, a Korean-style cai png stall on the first floor of Bukit Timah Plaza that also had a short menu of a la carte kimchi fried rice, stews and such. Then, they took over another unit in Basement One, calling it Myung Ga II.

This latest Myung Ga II in Tanjong Pagar is their first foray outside of the Beauty World enclave. It has just opened a week or so ago with what looks like largely the same menu as at their Bukit Timah Plaza shop—there are constant long queues here, so CBD peeps, this is your chance to try their fare!

One of the most popular items at Myung Ga II is their massive Donkatsu ($20++), AKA donkkaseu, or Korean-style tonkatsu. Unlike the Japanese variety, which is served sliced, donkatsu comes in thinner cutlets, and is not sliced before serving. It’s also usually served with a gravy ladled atop. Myung Ga II’s gravy is said to be moreish, with notes of fruit and tomato.

Just in time for the recent spate of sweater weather we’ve been having is their Buddae Jjigae ($40++), or army stew, as we know it. This is a portion for sharing, so jio some friends to tag along.

While you’re here, give their Haemul Jjambbong ($19++) a shot; it’s said to be one of the best around. Alternatively, try their Kong Jjajang ($15++) too.

For something off the beaten path, there’s Deulkkae Kalguksu ($16++), where the creamy broth is enriched with perilla seeds for a nutty, fragrant, and rather thick, stew-like finish. If you like, their Mul-Naengmyeon and Bibim Naengmyeon, both priced at $17++ a bowl, are supposed to be legit.
