First time trying their jjampong! The only soup dish from obba I’ve had is their tofu stew. The soup had a reasonably seafoody taste, and wasn’t too salty nor very spicy, so it’s pretty drinkable. Seafood (mussels, cuttlefish, shrimp) were quite bouncy and not overcooked, decent! For the veggies, there’s black fungus, shimeiji mushrooms, cabbage, onions, cucumbers, but I thought the amount could have been slightlyy more generous as I do love my veggies. Noodles were quite nua so I wasn’t too impressed.

No I did not misspell it, this is how it’s spelt on the menu 😂 Having tried both this (express outlet) and the jjm at their Tanjong Pagar outlet, the clear winner goes to the one at tjpg. The noodles here are a lot softer, lacks that chewy texture. The sauce is also not as nice - the tjpg sauce has more depth of flavour and that wokhei smokiness that I really enjoyed. This was still not bad tho, it’s savoury-sweet and with soft onions and minced meat. I’m actually quite happy with the portion size (slightly smaller than the tjpg/bukit timah) bc it was filling but I didn’t feel ridics full/like bursting after the meal!

The deep fried pork was crunchy, but rather bland on it’s own - the ideal piece was one that was half-coated in the sweet & slightly tangy sauce, so that there’s flavour + crunch. Would have preferred if the meat was at least seasoned just a bit, and the sauce more tangy. The ratio of batter to meat was ~1:1, I was ok bc at least it was freshly fried and crunchy, but it lacks that meatiness. Also the pork was kinda dry, sad. Carrots were raw af, but the raw onions & cucumber were nice to chomp on, as some sort of a palate cleanser. It’s an ok dish I guess, I wasn’t dissatisfied but I’ve had better.

What a glorious KBBQ meal i had at 8korean a while ago! Finally visited and saw what the hype was all about!! We got their signature 8 colours set (which was pork belly set of 8 different flavours - original, garlic, herb, red pepper, wine, curry and miso). Honestly, halfway into the meal i couldn’t tell which flavour was what - there wasnt any explanation by the staff too so all based on feels and guesses!! Certain flavours shone more than the others like garlic and red pepper. While the rest did taste different from each other, I couldn’t really recognise the flavours too. BUT was an experience!! Portion was rather little though - each row (as pictured) = one flavour! Special shoutout to the BANCHAN especially the freeflow kimchi that was grilled :”) Also, the staff helped with all the cooking which was LOVELY.

I loved the kimchi pancake so much!!!!!!!! The edges were EXTRA crispy and the pancake itself was chewy with the crunchiness of the kimchi itself :9 One of the best pancakes… really… (apologies for kimchi pancake photo - too eager to eat anyhow take photo)

We ordered army stew too, which i remembered it to be really good as well (perhaps didn’t stand out as much as the pork and pancake) but the broth was comforting with a kick, coupled with the chewy ramen noodles to accompany our meal.

The banchan was so good tho. I loved everything except the kimchi, which was average.

Seaweed - nicely seasoned, moist and slightly spicy.
Cucumbers - refreshing and slightly crunchy, and didn’t have that raw cucumber flavour.
Mashed potato - it’s pretty sweet, but I liked it a lot. It’s like an egg mayo mashed potato, you can see the egg white bits within.
Kimchi - thought it was spicier than other kimchis, it could be more tangy and flavourful though.
Radish - large chunky cubes of very crunchy radish, was very refreshing and slightly spicy.
Beansprouts - seasoned with sesame oil and mixed with black & white sesame seeds, these were crunchy and fragrant.

Overall, having tried this place on 2 occasions, would say to skip the pork cutlet, bibimbap was ok but not super satisfying, fried chicken is nice, gimbap and banchan is very good. Guess I prefer their sides.

This was terrible, not going to sugarcoat my words. It was really tough and dry, very hard to cut and eat. My cousin who ordered this was struggling to eat it, he regretted his choice. We tried some and was shocked at how tough it was. It came with rice and shredded cabbage doused in too much sauce. This dish had no saving grace, unfortunately.

This was rather average. Rice was moist but I had expected a more plump, sticky short grain rice. It did get crisp at the bottom so that was nice. Ingredients were all pretty decent, they were blanched and tasted healthy. Sliced pork was a little spicy, but meat portions aren’t a lot, my cousin commented. I didn’t add gochujang bc I didn’t want it heavily seasoned. It was a decent lunch option but I’ve had better - maybe some sesame oil would help!

Their pancake is pretty nice! Would get it again :) It has crisp outers (that remained crispy throughout the meal) and soft cakey insides. It’s good with and without the dipping sauce. They are very generous w the ingredients, there’s quite a fair bit of chopped prawns & squids (which were springy and not overcooked), as well as leeks & carrots. It’s huge, best for sharing between 3-4 people!

Jjm here is not v impressive, the noodles are quite soft (similar to woorinara) and felt like 粗米粉. I like 粗米粉, just that in jjm I prefer firmer noodles like those from mukjja. Sauce was quite thin (not that starchy). I don’t remember there being much ingredients. Would give this a miss next time!

I love the omelette! The kimchi and seaweed were decent. Not a fan of the ikan bilis, I would rather have crunchy ones. Decent banchan!

Banchan was nice! I enjoyed the deep fried yellow fish, which was flaky and tender, they rly fried it q well 👌🏼 there’s lots of bones but somehow it’s quite edible?? Like unagi. Cucumbers were sour and crunchy, liked it too! Kimchi was not v spicy, more on the sour side, and was composed of both cabbage and radish. Squid was chewy, seaweed was standard.

This comes with beef slices, minced beef, clams (~3-4), shrimp (2), squid, and crab. The tofu was q nice, on its own (without the soup) it’s rather bland which I like HAHA, and tasted fresh and soft. Soup was flavourful but didn’t particularly have a depth of flavour, could have a more 鲜甜 taste profile given the amount of seafood inside. I opted for mild so it wasn’t very spicy! Their soup base is made with pork & vegetables, so its not suitable for vegetarians 😛 Appreciate that the shrimp is not the suspiciously bouncy frozen kinds, and wasn’t overcooked! Beef slices were reasonably tender. Not bad, but slightly pricey to be an everyday lunch kinda thing.

Rice came in a hot stone bowl, thought this was q special bc I thought it’ll be served in a normal metal bowl. Oh and the hot corn tea was v roasty, yum!

Overall I thought this was a nice lunch, I wouldn’t mind returning since I work nearby! And it was SUPER filling for me even tho 2 of us shared 1 rice so be careful not to over-order :)
