Hakuna Moo-Tatare —$18
.

The magical Korean Beef Tatare with egg, pear and cucumber and we love the way we get to add garlic, brown sugar and sesame oil however we like! The texture is 👍🏼.

Waking up to Sunday brunch with this bunch. Thanks @joobarsg for the fun hospitality and @geekyelephant for extending the invite.

Not a hardcore beef tatare fan but I don't mind having it from time to time.

So guess how pleasantly surprised I was when this precious bowl of Hakuna Ma-Tatare came out to be my favourite dish today.

So much love for the addition of brown sugar, sesame oil and garlic, which elevates the seemingly boring meat cuts, making it sweet and fragrant.

See IG story for more of the tasting!
Thanks @geekyelephant for the invite, @alvinhighonfood for hosting and @joobarsg for having us!

Pig Bang ($26)

A huge slab of kimchi braised pork collar that is so irresistibly tender, served with a corn purée, watercress salad and radish. The Pig Bang will definitely send you straight to meat heaven due to its massive size, so it's best to share! This is part of Joo Bar's newly launched brunch menu that is available every Sunday 1130-1600.

NEW Sunday Brunch: Hakuna Moo-Tartare ($18++)

I N V I T E D T A S T I N G
Of everything we were fed today by chefs @datbearchef and @paulchong28, the Hakuna Moo-Tartare has got to be my favourite.
Ladies and gentlemen, ordinary beef tartare this ain't. Not when presentation has a theatrical flair (better standby that Boomerang!). And definitely not with the interesting touches it comes with.
For instance, mixed in with the chopped raw Korean beef are sweet pear and a 24-hour house-cured egg, while three saucers containing raw garlic purée, brown sugar and sesame oil are served alongside. These are to allow customers to season each bite to their own liking. Well, I discovered I actually enjoy beef tartare more with sugar.
Do note this wittily-named creation is available only on Sundays for brunch at @JooBarSg (11.30am to 4pm).

NEW Sunday Brunch Menu - Bull-gogi Ssam ($26++)

I N V I T E D T A S T I N G
Guess what? There's no need to fly around to enjoy the cuisine from the ASEAN countries when you can go over to @JooBarSg on Sundays for their brand new brunch.
Inspired by their multi-national team, the dishes created by Head Chef @datbearchef and Sous Chef @paulchong28 reflect different countries of origin in the region but with a unique "cafe twist".
First up, and in tribute to their brand heritage, was this Bull-gogi Ssam ($26++), a Korean take on the classic Sunday roast.
The thick slices of Argentinian grass-fed beef were tender and I really liked how they tasted wrapped in lettuce with the housemade kimchi and chimichurri. Interestingly, the latter's made of roasted leeks and spring onions which is a departure from the norm but no less appetising.

D.I.Y. Bibimbap

Very value for money-oozey egg atop purple rice(carbs), plus choice of meat and 3 ingredients. I went with beef bulgolgi, which was tender and flavourful, and carrots, cucumber and marinated spinach, all of which were very fresh and added nice crunch! I especially like the spinach-all in all, a very wholesome and hearty meal!

Makgeolli Sampler Set ($35) 🍶 This was the grand finale of the nite.

We had double of this as it was 1 for 1 promotion. Makgeolli overdose!! House Brew Organic Makgeolli, Yucha Makgeolli Slush, Passionfruit Makgeolli, Blood Orange Makgeolli, Lychee Makgeolli. So which one is your favorite? My love goes to Lychee 😘

#burpple

Porktatoes ($12++) 🐷🐷🐷 One of my favorite sides here.

Potatoes fried in the flavorful fat from the confit of mangalitsa pork and anchovy emulsion.
New Sunday brunch menu from @JooBarSG.
Available only on Sundays from 12-4pm. .
Thanks @joobarsg for having us!

One of my favourite dishes of today's tasting of @joobarsg new brunch menu -> Pig Bang ($26), essentially braised kimchi pork collar.

Love the aesthetics and flavour of the dish, and the thickness of the pork collar. Spiciness is pretty mild as well, good for people with low heat tolerance like me.

Thanks to @angwman & @joobarsg for hosting and @zanthrea for the kind invite!

Not the easiest to find, since not all are kind
Some will lie, and turn me blind
Mess with my mind, and give me binds
The death note I sign, often had me confined.
.
But I am glad to find, people who are kind
On my side they lie, keep me from being blind
Give me an ease of mind, into my life they bind
The friendship I sign, break boundaries and confines.

Mangalitsa Pork Belly
☻☻☻☻☻☻☻☻☻☻
In every girl, there's a beastly side
Nothing to hide
No need to lie
It's not about pride
Nor a need to fight.

Take things in stride
Against all odds we tide
Ignore the snides
Be our own guide
Together, we walk side by side
Our presence magnified.
🔅
The place I have been to over five times for their light snacks, food, makgeolli and sojurita, while I immerse myself in great company and Korean music. Their signature mangalitsa pork belly is a must-order! The tender slices of pork belly with charred edges and melt-in-the-mouth fats paired with some onion salad and sweet mustard is sinfully delicious.

Thanks @makanarts for the invite and @joobarsg for the awesome Korean food!
