This is the latest Korean restaurant to have opened along the Tanjong Pagar Road stretch offering Korean comfort food such as spam gimbap, spicy stir fried pork and especially the seafood soft tofu stew that I highly recommend. The stew had a strong seafood flavour and comes packed with ingredients. One of the comfort foods that I love is the kimchi fried rice, though simple but when done right, it absolutely hits the spot. The cheese steamed egg is best eaten when served while the seafood pancake could do a bit more time in the pan to crisp up further.

I managed to get a queue number online first so didn had to wait too long. The gukbap comes with different slices of pork and pig stomach. The soup tasted abit like bak kut teh to me. The pig stomach was clean very well and didn have any gamey taste. The pork were tender too. It may look fatty but doesnt taste that way. Their kimchi was very authentic too. Overall, it was a bit bland for me. Perhaps would try the dinner menu next time.

This has chunks of chewy baby octopus, tender white onions, and crisp spring onions, in a piquant gravy that's savoury sweet spicy in flavour.
.
Lovely smoky aroma, though the heat is just sufficient to tingle the palate, without much burn.

Theirs is one of the best, it's deep fried so exterior is crunchy, and interior was quite fluffy. Seafood was reasonably generous too

The crisp dissipates though, so eat quickly. Further the sauce is quite weak

Opening in April 2023 and headlined by founder Chef Chul Park, the Bulgogi Syo restaurant concepts represents their 'Art Of Fire', bringing together tableside flambΓ©s, sizzling hot stones, huge fire blasters in an open kitchen, and exquisitely marinated cuts of fresh meat.
.
Ambience is spacious and open. The dark shades are interspersed with bright warm lighting, and the sturdy furnishings and comfortable booth seats are decent. The open kitchen offers a view of the action, particularly when staff break out the massive fire blasters.
.
Service is polite and respectful, with staff checking to ensure that everything is well. They display good product knowledge. Staff also play in key role in the overall experience through performing tableside flambΓ©s for selected dishes. They work quickly to fulfill orders, and clean up efficiently when diners leave.
.
Food is exciting Modern Korean cuisine, focused on fresh barbecue featuring well-marinated cuts of beef and pork. Ingredients are fresh, and quality is consistent. Portions are medium sized for individuals. Prices are reflective of a typical restaurant, budget about SGD $38 per person.
