Korean food is much beloved in Singapore, and whether you like your fiery fried chicken, your bibimbap steaming at your table, your bingsu sweet or your kimchi, well, everywhere, then you’ll not be stuck for options in Singapore. The biggest and most beloved of Korean restaurants in Singapore are the BBQ joints, and one of the best names in the game in that regard is 8 Korean BBQ in the Shaw Centre shopping mall in Orchard. Their offer a very special take on the genre is marked by 8 different marinades on their pork – from which they get their name – and Prime US and Kagoshima Wagyu beef for their bulgogi, all cooked as you watch on your table. Take the trip to Scotts Road, by the corner with Orchard Road, to try some of the best Korean BBQ in Singapore at 8 Korean BBQ.
If you’re looking for Korean BBQ in Singapore, you’re not going to be disappointed by the selection in front of you. There are some of the best exponents of the art to be found anywhere south of the Korean Peninsula itself, and one of the table top title holders might well be 8 Korean BBQ in the Shaw Centre on the corner of Orchard Road and Scotts Road in Orchard. Their decor is stylish and very much in keeping with the predominant industrial chic aesthetic of modern Singapore restaurants, and they present a menu that is similarly sophisticated.
The secret to the 8 Korean BBQ success is the meats, of course, and they’re so proud of their pork options that they’ve staked their name on it. The 8 in 8 Korean comes from the eight marinades that can accompany your meat – though 7 might be more appropriate, as one is natural, as in without marinade – including wine, ginseng, garlic, herbs, curry, miso paste and red pepper paste. The pigs themselves are from the Mangalitza, a rare breed of Hungarian hog known as the “Kobe beef of pork”, so you know that when the meat meats the marinade, it’s only going to be the very best in Korean BBQ in Singapore. Pay them visit on Scotts Road in Orchard – and book before you arrive to make sure that you get yourself a seat at the table.
The food was very nice and the service was excellence. The ambient was also nice and i enjoyed dinning at the place. Will return again. Thank you.
I made reservations for 7:30pm on a Monday night, there wasnt much of a crowd but it was approximately 80% full house. The service was good, we were probably served by the owners themselves. They recommended the squid but pity we had too few people to order it along with the 4 colour set and a pot of mangoli. Will try it the next time we are back! Great food and great service, our only greviance is the price point which is slightly pricey for a kbbq, but I guess its quality meat so we cant complain! It totaled to 100$ish for the 4 colour set and a joo brew mangoli.
Great service and really awesome cuts of meat served here! Was pleasantly surprised by how warm and welcoming the wait staff were, despite a busy full house. Will definitely be back!
