Having Korean tonight? Now, there’s a Korean restaurant guide to help you pick the best Korean restaurants in Singapore and Hong Kong.
Launched by the Ministry of Agriculture, Food and Rural Affairs in Korea, the ‘Korean Restaurant Guide Singapore · Hong Kong’ includes details and recommendations on the various handpicked Korean restaurants in the two cities. Apart from listing restaurants that offer the ‘true taste of Korean in their hometown’, the guide also recommends restaurants suited for romantic dining, family gatherings, business meetings and casual outings with friends. It is available in print and as a mobile app.
Some of the restaurants listed in the Korean Restaurant Guide for Singapore include Bigmama, ‘8 E!ght’ Korean BBQ, Han Kook Gwan Korean Restaurant, Chowon Garden, Guiga and Ssikkek BBQ.
For Singapore, the guide features 20 Korean restaurants out of 150 restaurants operating here by a team of local food experts. The restaurants were evaluated based on the quality of taste in their dishes served, service, hygiene and interior of the restaurant.
The guidebook also includes a segment on “50 Popular Menu Selections” on Korean dishes in Singapore and Hong Kong. “The Story of Korean Food” is also an additional segment depicting fun facts to raise awareness of Korean food among locals.
The guidebook will be distributed to embassies, Korean Cultural Centers, tourist information centers, university libraries, and Korean language institutes within the two countries for local residents. In Korea, they will be distributed for free at major airports and in tourist information centres in areas where tourists from Singapore and Hong Kong visit frequently, such as Dongdaemun, Itaewon, Jamsil, and Myeong-dong.
