Two years after launching Korean barbecue restaurant Seorae at Plaza Singapura, the same team has opened the new Patbingsoo Korean Dining House in the same mall.
The casual 52-seat eatery's signature item is its Rolling Cheese Pork Ribs ($38.90, above), which includes thick pork ribs and a combination of mozzarella and cheddar cheese served in a Korean cast iron pan.
The cheese is melted until it has a stringy texture and then rolled around the individual pork ribs.
The dish is served with fries, sweet corn in cream and chopped pineapple.
Other highlights include Dynamic Spam ($11.90), in which spam is covered in gochujang and mayonnaise and lightly torched, then topped with chopped onions and served with a side of Korean rice balls; Fried Samgyeopsal ($6.90) or deep-fried pork belly, served with honey mustard sauce; and House Special Ramyeon ($11.90).
Fans of Seorae will be familiar with the picture-perfect Bibim Patbingsoo ($11.90); Apgujeong Bingsoo ($13.90), with cheese cake, cheese wafers and vanilla ice cream; and Sinsa Patbingsoo ($14.90), which includes cornflakes and vanilla ice cream.
