For small bites, try their Gimbap ($8), one of the most popular items on the menu. There are four flavours: Chicken Ham, Odeng, Tuna, and Beef. Each portion comes with two maki rolls, so if you’ve got a smaller appetite, it’ll be a full meal.


They also serve up Tteokbokki from $6 here. The tteokbokki is cooked on a huge hotplate, similar to those used by street food sellers in Seoul.

They also have Odeng fishcakes, which you can enjoy on the large wooden skewers, just like in Korea. One stick is priced at $4, or two for $7.

For mains, they have a handful of classic Korean dishes. The Beef Set is one of the more popular items. For $10, you get a Korean bento, AKA dosirak, with bulgogi beef, two sides, rice, and a fried egg atop.

Other mains include japchae, bibimbap and more!

Aside from the food, many online reviews rave about how friendly the Korean couple is—all the more incentive to support this small F&B business. The next time you’re in the Kovan or Serangoon area craving a quick lunch or Korean food, be sure to check Myungdong K-Food out.
