Reviews at 8 Korean BBQ (The Central)

Reviews of good food at 8 Korean BBQ (The Central)
#tbt the Korean BBQ over at 8 Korean BBQ.

The meat was tender with a hint of the flavors that we've chosen since we ordered the 4 flavors pork. Wine, garlic, gochujang and herbs. I remember liking the gochujang one the most since the flavor is slightly saccharine and hence, bringing out the tenderness of the pork more than the other flavors. The squid was grilled just right by the waiter—not too chewy to the point you might wonder if you were doing jaw exercises. Perhaps it also has something to do with the freshness of the squid. It was quite addictive. Honestly, would go back if the price wasn't so steep. Nonetheless, I had an enjoyable meal.

4 flavors mangalica pork set ($58) @

weekend meat game strong.. a stop at @8koreanbbq - 4 flavors mangalica pork set ($58) and a slab of argentinian beef rib eye ($58). the mangalica pork of hungarian origin, touted as the kobe beef of pork was thick, lean and with melting fats without feeling sinfully heavy. suggest to go with one light flavor to enjoy the prized pork almost on its own and the rest with heavier flavors just for pure indulgence. awesome service but gwadd why issit so dark in there!

dont worry too much about the tilted hotplate like i did. it came with a good reason. you will see why.

Thick. Pork. Bellyyyyy.

Since it was just the two of us, we went for the four colour set, with the recommended flavours garlic, miso, red pepper paste and kalbi. I realize cooking samgyeopsal is more of an aural than visual turn-on, that sizzle on the hot grill... Ooooh yeah.

In a short span of 5 minutes, the meat were all cut up and ready to enter the human chamber *rubs belly* The Mangalitsa pork has a much higher fat-to-meat ratio, and their marbling is touted to be the Kobe-beef equivalent, so be prepared to chew a lot more fat than usual. Our unanimous favourite was the miso, most savoury stand-out.

We also ate the seafood pancake, packed with shrimp, squid and chives, and was crisp and less dough-y, much to our liking.

I can't wait to go back soon to try the other four flavours!

Kimcheese Fried Rice ($20.0).

One of my favourite items at 8 Korean BBQ… how can you go wrong with a hotplate filled with rice, kimchi, egg and gooey cheese?

Ribeye ($38++ for 200gms)

Tonight, my usual favourite, the "8 Colours Pork Belly Platter" had to share the no. 1 spot in my heart with the incredibly tender Ribeye Steak. The friendly staff was skilled in grilling it to our requested medium-rare, rendering every slice velvety soft and wondrously juicy.

Mangalica Pork Belly 4 Flavours (SGD $58 Set) @ 8 E!ght Korean BBQ.

Specialising in the 'wagyu' of Pork, they offer 8 different flavours of pork belly, served in a set! This is the smaller set of 4 flavours, good for 2 pax, served with 6 banchan side dishes, and 1 seafood soft tofu stew.

My personal fav is the Herb rubbed pork belly!

Why I Am A Fan Of 8 Korean BBQ

What I especially like about this Korean BBQ joint is their devotion to pork belly. The appropriately-named "Big Hog Plate" ($45++) is a gigantic, 1-inch thick slab of it that should easily fulfill most pork-lover's fantasies. It did mine. Furthermore, the staff even takes care of the grilling to ensure the meat is cooked to its optimum. As it sizzles away to perfection, you should do what I do - continue stuffing your face on their other tasty dishes.

One that I find really appetising is the "KimCheese Fried Rice" ($20++). Served on a hotplate with an egg cracked on top, all you need to do before digging in is to give it a thorough stir. Then the impact of this fusion concoction built from kimchi, cheese, mayo and bonito flakes, can be fully experienced.

If you are into eggs, you should give the "Seafood Pancake" ($20++) a try too. More eggy-than-doughy, it is filled with ample amounts of squid, prawns and chives. I derive pleasure in having this both with and without the accompanying vinegary dip.

Choco Loco kinda day.

I’m not usually a fan of chocolate desserts, but the combination of chocolate powder, marshmallows, chocolate ice cream and nutella is offset with fluffy, milky shaved ice making it a really refreshing chocolate treat. I could eat a whole bowl by myself.
#8KoreanBBQ #Bingsu *

Rubbed my hands with glee as I picked up one of these beautifully grilled pork belly and stuffed it into mouth.

Extremely flavourful especially my Favourite one - garlic.
Pictured here is the 8 Colour set ($98 - best shared with 4 people). Flavours ranged from wine, ginseng, red pepper, miso, curry and herb.
Taste great with some of their homemade kimchi (better after toasted on the grill pan and soaking up some of the porky juice 😋) and paired with their specialty Yucha Makgeolli that is so easy to drink.
Thank you for feeding us @eightkoreanbbq and @geekyelephant for extending the invite! A big thank you to @angwman for the Super warm hospitality, had an awesome time!

Was pleasantly surprised at how good the chocolate bingsu at 8 Korean BBQ is.

Chocolate lovers will definitely want to have a go at this, especially when there's chocolate brownies, chocolate balls and..(drums roll) nutella in it!! If you want to go into chocolate dreamland, this is it.

A Bingsu That's Disguised As A Bibimbap

A bibimbap that's not hot but cold? Not made of rice, meats and vegetables but fresh fruit, whipped cream and sweet toppings? Whatever this sorcery, it is a super "cool" way to end a pork belly BBQ feast!

I don't know about you but this is the kind of rainbow that I would like to see.

The 8 Colours Set ($98) which comes with 8 flavoured mangalitza pork belly is very much preferred.

OINKINGLY GOOD PORK BELLY! ($98++)

These are not your ordinary pork belly but the healthier, premium-quality Hungarian Mangalitsa variant thank you very much.

The best way to enjoy it is to get this sumptuous "8 Colours Set" which has eight rolls of the pork belly prepared in different flavours. It starts with the naked original (that lets you savour the purity of the clean-tasting meat perfectly) and progresses on to it having been marinated with garlic, red wine, kalbi, herb, curry, miso and red pepper paste. If I were pressed to pick my top three, I would say the garlic, red wine and miso.

Another big plus for me is that the staff does the cooking for you here at Eight Korean BBQ. The attentive service extends to them covering the pork with a sheet of grease paper as it sizzles on the grill, so no customer gets accidentally splattered. Isn't that thoughtful?
