Baro Baro – Popular Korean Street Food Under One Roof
Find Korea’s best Korean street food here – even egg bread! We probably did something amazing in our previous lives to deserve this. Baro Baro is conveniently located at Tanjong Pagar Xchange, joining the stretch of eateries feeding hundreds of hungry souls during lunch hour.
I’m sure fans of the egg bread snack are curious about the taste. “How do theirs compare to the ones in Korea?” There are 4 flavours ($3 each) available – Original, Corn Mayo, Bacon Cheese and Chicken BBQ. I would say, just get the Original – classics will remain classics. The bread isn’t a regular fluffy bread. It has a dense cake-like texture and is slightly sweet. When combined with the savoury whole egg, it makes for one of the best snacks in Korea. However, with much difficulty, I have to break it to you that you will still need to fly to Korea for the real deal.
Kimbab ($6) is another street food that you cannot afford to miss out on. It’s fuss-free, healthy and absolutely delicious – what’s not to love? Baro Baro’s rendition of a Tuna Kimbab won’t blow your mind to the ends of the globe, but good enough to keep your Korean food cravings on hold. After all, it’s really hard to get kimbab to taste bad.
I know it sounds like a stupid idea to pay $7 for a bowl of Ramyun. But we just can’t help it sometimes okay… The Spicy Noodle Soup ($7) kept calling out to us that day (conveniently shifting the blame…) so of course, we just had to go with it. However, this was a tad disappointing. If I’m paying $7 for a bowl for a bowl of instant noodles, I would expect at least some accompanying dishes, not just an egg and some mushrooms… For the noodles and soup, I’m sure that we all know how it tastes like.
We requested for Noodle Toppoki ($6) without noodles since we already ordered Ramyun. Hmmm, as usual, it’s really average. After gobbling down like ten chewy rice cakes, it might be a tad spicy for some. And that’s when their light bulb coolers come in handy to put out the fire.
The Blue Lemon Soda ($5) was just too fizzy. The novelty is present, but I will not order that beverage again. The only plus point is that you can bring the light bulb home afterwards!
There is nothing amazing about this Korean eatery, but I wouldn’t mind popping by to enjoy some Kimbab. Baro Baro is having a promotion now – order any set meal and you’ll receive a light bulb cooler on the house.
