Guiga Korean BBQ Restaurant (구이가 바베큐 한식당), Tanjong Pagar Road

It's been quite a long while since we've last had Korean food. We've passed by this barbeque shop  (134 Tanjong Pagar Road, tel : +65 6221 3001) numerous times before and it's gotten itself lodged in our heads when we were thinking of having some.

Nothing too special about their banchan except for the kimchi which we thought was pretty good. Refreshingly tangy with fizz. From what I heard, that fizziness meant the height of fermentation with all the CO2 driven effervescence.

There was a complimentary gyeran jjim. Or simply steamed egg.

There were a few sets of grilled meat from the menu for variety so we picked A which was pretty much the beef set that had briskets and meat from the rib, marinated and nude.

One of those things I like about Korean BBQ are the lettuces which one transforms into wraps with the grilled meat along with slices of garlic and doenjang. I'm always assured of a generous tasty serving of a healthy greens for a more balanced meal. The dip that they provided was pretty fruity and refreshing.

For good measure, we ordered also a sundae guk. Nice chunky cut up bits of sundae in the somewhat murky looking broth which was served with salty saeujeot (fermented shrimp like chinchalok) and some chilli paste. I don't know if that chilli paste is also gochujang or not but they didn't have the fermented beans in them nor the mild sweetness.
