Myung Ga II Korean BBQ – Family Style Korean Food in Bukit Timah
I don’t travel to Bukit Timah that often but when I do, it’s usually for lunch at 名家 (Ming Jia) 명가 II Korean BBQ or brunch at Atlas Coffeehouse. Tucked away in Bukit Timah Plaza, Myung Ga II Korean BBQ is a family-style Korean restaurant that’s very busy during peak hours. Most of the diners are usually Korean.
I think the main reason why the restaurant is so popular is because the food is delicious and reasonably priced. The restaurant doesn’t just serve babe dishes, but hearty and authentic Korean fare too. I really enjoy the cooked food, so I haven’t tried the BBQ yet.
We were first served 4 sides – kimchi, seaweed, tamago and ikan billis. The sides are freeflow and I loved the tamago and kimchi.
Addictive and delicious, the Jeyuk Bokkeum (Korean Spicy Pork Stir fry) is served with a bowl of rice. The meat is marinated in a sauce similar to bulgogi but with an added kick of spiciness that comes from a mixture of gochujang and gochugaru.
A real foodie will know that Kimchi Stew and Korean BBQ is the best combo ever! Loved by many, the classic kimchi jjigae is a must eat when in Korea. I don’t go home without having it! I selected the seafood stew instead because it has lots of ingredients such as prawns, clams, mussels and tofu. This is a comforting stew that will put me in a good mood everytime.
To go with our mains, we ordered a seafood leek pancake. The crispy fried pancake came with lots of leek and seafood and was tasty even without the soy sauce. However, I have tried better pancakes at Seorae!
Expect very simple yet authentic Korean dishes at Myung Ga II Korean BBQ. I suggest that you go with a few friends so that you can try a variety of dishes. And be prepared to wait for a table, and also your orders, during peak hours but the food is well worth the wait.
