A new eatery in Resorts World Sentosa is where you can get your fill of the latest food fads. Insadong Korea Town, located near the Trick Eye Museum, offers more than 200 types of dishes that range from traditional Korean and hybrid dishes to street food and desserts.
It's a self-service eatery where diners make their choices and pay for the food at self-ordering kiosks.
They then pick up their food from various stalls in the 6,000 sq ft eatery that seats more than 300.
My favourite is the Bossam or Korean Boiled Pork Wrap ($15 for small). Slices of pork belly are simmered in mild herbs till soft and eaten wrapped in cabbage with sliced garlic, green chilli and chilli paste. The pork also tastes good on its own with a dab of the paste and does not feel greasy at all.
Other good dishes include the Ginseng Chicken ($28), which comes with a small serving of evaporated milk to add to the soup if you wish.
Desserts include the trendy J-cone ($6), a J-shaped tube made from corn flour that is filled with ice cream. There is also the Churro With Soft Serve And Fruits ($9), an odd Korean twist to the Spanish snack that is rather addictive.
