#2: Cheesy Volcano Fried Rice
The Koreans take cheese quite seriously. There’s pork ribs wrapped in cheese, cheese pancakes, Korean BBQ with cheese, and even cheese topped on braised chicken (google ‘Jjimdak’, if you don’t believe us!). Stretchy, fragrant and oh-so-yummy, it’s no wonder cheese is added liberally to any dish.
At Huluruk Myeon House, the well-loved Korean fried rice is given an “oomph” with extra stretchy cheese! Super Instagrammable and also flavourful! Best part? The 10% off waives away part of the GST charged so you save more.
You might be wondering, what are French desserts and snacks doing in an article about Korean cuisines? The reason is that western-inspired sweet treats are all the rage in Korea! From pretty parfaits to macarons and artisanal coffee, Café de Paris has everything you need to up the aesthetics game on your Instagram wall.
Artists and those with a creative soul will be glad to know that the café often holds art jamming sessions, perfect for dates and outings with your bestie.
If that 20% doesn’t sound tempting enough, we have something to top it off – $10 off your eatigo order! Simply download the CardsPal app and create an account to receive the e-voucher.
Korea is also well known for its stews. The origin of army stew can be traced back to post-Korean war, when the Koreans first experimented with using American ingredients to cook a stew. Filled with sausages, luncheon meat, pork, beef, vegetables, toufu and Ramyeon, this is basically an all-in-one enjoyment in a pot!
Other hot piping stews include the Haemul Jjigae (seafood stew), Twi Gim Jjigae (Tempura stew), Tteokbokki Jjigae and more.
Let Hongdae Oppa show you the way to urban K-food! Stay trendy by trying trending food such as the crispy pork belly, hot wings, and sizzling Bibimbaps.
Plus, enjoy up to 50% off your favourite fares during off-peak hours! In fact, the Tteokbokki is just $5.95 after discount. Top favourites like the sizzlers, and Oppa Cheesy Chix are also on promotion.
Fans of Hongdae Oppa Korean Dining praise it for its good service, satisfying portion of food, and of course, yummy cuisines!
