Red Pig Korean Restaurant, Amoy Street










It was almost a full house slightly before 7pm on a Tuesday night. Food here's (93 Amoy St, tel : +65 6220 7176) not too bad. The service staff seems to be quite overwhelmed and there weren't any refills of the banchan and I'm wondering if it's because of the fact that the limited wait staff are constantly having to attend to the tables.

One thing to note though - one should wait for the charcoal grill to be heated up before attempting to cook that galbisal as I doubt that the servers took enough notice when they assisted in the cooking. Having a grill that was still heating up only meant that there wasn't enough heat for you to get respectable grill marks onto the meat without the interiors being overcooked. Meat doesn't come salted, but that's easily rectifiable. Their signature Red Pig cuts of marinated pork were pretty tasty in a spicy, nutty and sweet sort of way. What was outstanding was their crispy seafood pancake which was a medly of textures from the exterior, the chewy insides, bite from generous portions of squid and crunchy spring onions.
