[Foodie Friday] Korean Food + Cheese = A Match Made in Heaven

15 May 2015, Singapore – Korean food is definitely not just about kimchi – thinking about the wide variety, such as ddeokbokki (spicy rice cakes), pajeon (green onion pancake) and all kinds of barbecued meat already makes me drool. Koreans are also innovative when it comes to food. Besides adding cheese to their staple ramyun meal, they have also incorporated cheese into other well-loved Korean meals. This fad has also slowly began to spread to Singapore, and today we’ll introduce some Korean restaurants that feature these dishes in their menus.

1) Nanta BBQ
Being the first (or one of the first) Korean restaurants in Singapore to introduce cheese ribs in their menus, this place has been bookmarked in my must-visit list for a long time (but I’ve yet gotten the chance to go down yet).

The cheese chicken galbi dish has finally made its way to Singapore after being available for some time in Korea’s Yoogane chain outlets. Cuurently, Yoogane Singapore is also holding a competition to see who can create the longest cheese strand and the winner gets to win a free trip to Korea!

Similar to the bingsu craze that is shaking up Singapore’s dessert scene, we hope that this cheesy fad will spread to more Korean restaurants in Singapore. What could possibly go wrong with cheese?
