Get your <i>chimaek</i> game on at Tanjong Pagar’s Korean restaurants
Few things can be better than knocking back an ice cold pint in the tropical heat, accompanied with a piping hot basket of fried, crispy chicken. A combination of the word chicken and maekju (the Korean word for beer), chimaek is an important part of Korean culture, and Tanjong Pagar restaurants that specialise in these crunchy gems do them just the way we like it. The ones at Kko Kko Nara, for example, come in exciting flavours like soy garlic or hot and spicy, all prepared with the owner’s very own recipe. Hungry for more than fried chicken? Twins on Craig Road dishes them out alongside an assortment of well-loved street food options such as tokkbokki (rice cake with chilli paste), japchae (stir-fried glass noodles), and haemul pajun (seafood pancake), all under one roof. For a true chimaek experience at any of these Tanjong Pagar Korean restaurants, don’t forget to order a round of Korean beers to toast with your friends. Geonbae!
