5 Ways to Choose the Best Korean BBQ in Singapore - One Two Kitchen

Korean Barbeque has long been a weakness for many Singaporeans. From the sizzling of each slice of beef to the carefully crafted lettuce wrap and finally, the explosion of taste as the flavors flood your tastebuds, it is definitely not an ordinary experience.

It is no surprise, as we're seeing Korean restaurants pop up at every corner of our shores at an exponential rate. But now that they're becoming available everywhere, the question is - how do you discern authentic, genuine Korean food from the average fare?

One Two Kitchen is a Korean BBQ Izakaya Style Dining Bar. Serving dishes from the people's favorite, Kimchi Jjigae, to mouthwatering glazed Soy Garlic Chicken, the variety of Korean food will leave you spoilt for choice. 

For their signature Korean BBQ, choose from a selection of meat such as Boneless Prime Ribs, Pork Belly, Chicken, and Prawns.

I. Make sure your Chef is a Korean

What better way to enjoy authentic Korean cuisine than to have it prepared by a chef who is Korean himself? Bred, born and learned in their home country, find a chef that knows the in and outs and specialties of Korean cuisine.

Singapore's most famous Korean Chef, as known as Korean Hungry Chef, helms the kitchen at One Two Kitchen. After cooking up a storm in his home country, he later decided to settle down in Singapore instead and has been here for 3 years since. 

2. Ambience is Key

It is no surprise that the interior design of a restaurant is one of the key factors when it comes to customer satisfaction. Want to experience dining in a Korean restaurant without traveling all the way to Korea? Take a walk around the restaurant's interior and be greeted by walls decorated with posters of Korean idols and celebrities to signs of Korean Hangul at every corner. You might even spot your favorite celebrities and be tempted to take one home.

3. Check the Quality of your Meat

Thick, generous slabs of meat are a sure crowd pleaser. Thicker and higher quality meat means more bang for your buck!

4. Variety of Dishes

Their signature fried chicken! 

Steamed Egg

Their prime ribs are seriously juicy and delectable! I highly recommend this! 

Ginseng Chicken Soup!  

Look no further, Singaporeans no longer have to travel the 8-hour flight to Korea just to have a taste of authentic Korean food. One Two Kitchen provides a diverse variety of Korean cuisine, including  traditional stews such as Bean Paste Soup (Dwaejangjjigae), Ginseng Chicken Soup (Samgyetang), to rice bowls, Hot Stone Bibimbab (Dol Sot Bibimbap) and Cold Noodles (Naengmyeon).
Don't forget to try out their Fried Chicken that comes in 3 flavors - Fried, Sweet & Spicy and Soya Fried. There are also combo selections where you can get one basket at an affordable price so consider that to have a bite of all three flavors!

5. Popularity within the Korean Community

When we walk into a restaurant, especially if it's not a local cuisine, it is a natural instinct to survey the surroundings to determine if it's worth our money. Imagine a traditional Korean BBQ restaurant filled with actual Koreans shouting in glee over bottles of soju, chugging down their glasses with a delighted "AHHHH". With PSB Academy situated just across the road, One Two Kitchen has become a popular hangout for Korean students to take a breather and study with friends after school. At night, the atmosphere takes a 360-degree turn as businessmen and office workers stream in after a hard day of work.

  1. Here the lighting is a little brighter than lounge setting, and you can sit at one of their many tables, or grab a seat by the bar. With a large menu of beers, you might have trouble picking just one. The music at Venues in NYC is always upbeat with a mixture of rock and pop, and the food menu is large as well as their seating.
