Imagine the sizzle of delectable cuts of meat, well-marinated in a rich, luscious concoction of the finest flavours. Watch the sauce bubble and seep over, like the drool gathering in your mouth as it meets this splendid display of food dancing over the grill. That’s just a part of the experience you get at Daorae Korean Restaurant, where it tempts all your five senses for a complete, mind-blowing experience. Savour every bite of true blue Korean barbequed food with an array of freshly made side dishes and ala-carte food items. Truly #foodporn, if we’d say so ourselves.

3. Restaurant Tai Sam Guan

Bite into succulent, fleshy pieces of crab and let the heavenly taste fill your mouth at Restaurant Tai Sam Guan. Give their Salt Roasted Crab a go, a famous local favourite you’ll only find at this eatery. Made purely with salt immersed into the crab, it’s testament to how simplicity truly is everything.

Its Crab with Salted Egg is one highly sought-after dish, made entirely with salted egg yolk. Every mouthful will leave you with tasty chunks of yolk and fresh meat in a stunning combination.

4. Restaurant Aunty Fatso

A hidden gem that’s also a hot favourite, decades-old Restaurant Aunty Fatso is renowned for its crabs. We recommend the Sweet and Sour Crab, cooked to perfection and covered with thick, savoury gravy.

Find yourself smacking your lips, slurping up every bit of sauce off your fingers and chomping down on the plump, sweet crab meat. Crunch into the fried bread served together with the dish and use it to sweep the sauce clean.
