After binge-watching mukbang videos online, having a bowl of instant ramyeon just won’t do you justice. But at Hongdae Oppa, get your money’s worth with their comforting, satisfying and mouthwatering Korean dishes. Whether you’re craving Sizzlers (Bokkeumbap), Tteokbokki, Jjigae or Fried Chicken, this vibrant eatery at Plaza Singapura and Jurong Point will whet your appetite.
If you love your food served piping hot, try the Chicken Sizzler (Mild-Spicy) ($13.90) – also known as Bokkeumbap. Order this and get heads turning when the staff sends it sizzling hot to your table! It includes chicken, onions, scallions, sweet corn kernels, fried egg, rice, and crispy chicken skin for that extra crunch. You may request the staff to help mix it up for you, but it’s always more fun when you DIY!
For a heartier dish, try the classic Pork Kimchi Jjigae ($13.90) cooked with a generous portion of pork belly, kimchi, tofu, enoki mushrooms and white onions. Although it’s best to eat with steamed white rice, it’s still good on its own.
A true testament for a praiseworthy Korean restaurant is the fried chicken, and at Hongdae Oppa they checked all the right boxes by using 100% fresh chicken, marinated for 12 hours for maximum flavour. Featuring the 6pc Oppa Chix (Signature Gochujang) ($18.90), each piece is generously coated with spicy Gochujang sauce, sprinkled with sesame seeds, served with cheese sauce to keep the fiery heat at bay. There is no polite way to eat a chicken, so go ahead, dip it with cheese, take a big bite, and be transported to the streets of Hongdae.
If you’re still feeling ravenous, order the classic soul food, Bibimbab (Pork or Beef) ($10.90) and Chix Skin ($5.90) – keep the calorie counter at home, you won’t need it here.
