The Gogi is another authentic Korean restaurant, with Korean servers, and Korean cooks cooking up a storm in the kitchens behind.

Having only come to the KBBQ scene only in 2016, it still poses as a pretty good contender amongst all the other Korean restaurants out there – it is almost always packed to the brim with office workers in both lunch hours, and dinner, testament to how good it is.

What perhaps differentiates The Gogi from others is its personable service from its staff, and the attentive care to their customers.

8 Eight Korean BBQ is where you wanna go if you’re a meat connoisseur – or if you straight up just want to try bougie meat, like their specialty meat – the Mangalitza pork meat (SGD 45), a meat of Hungarian origin.

What’s special about the Mangalitza meat is its sheer tenderness and juiciness of the pork, often called the Kobe beef of pork, with twice the amount of marbling than regular pork.

But wait, that’s not all – they also offer three types of premium beef – Argentinian beef (SGD 58), US prime beef (SGD 42), and melt-in-your-mouth Wagyu beef (SGD 110).

Meat lovers (and non-meat lovers!) – you’re sure not to regret coming here.

Sick of the same ol’ same ol’ marinated sliced meats and pork belly or whatever else that comes to mind with the usual Korean BBQ fares in Singapore?

Well, Kko Chi Bar is a BBQ Restaurant as well, but it has a very different appeal altogether, with it specialising in barbecued meat skewers.

While you might think that maybe it’s not too different from the traditional Japanese Yakiniku, what differentiates this and makes it truly special is its very own special auto-rotating skewer machine, where you can watch as the meats cook in front of you.
