Bornga Restaurant Review

If you ask me what is the new hype for food now, hands down, it would be Korean BBQ. No surprises really, as Singaporeans, young and old, are so addicted to K-Drama and Reality Shows, even my parents would once didn’t really like Korean Food, after they watch so many K-Dramas, we seem to be eating Korean food much more frequently now…

There are no shortages of Korean Restaurants, specialising in BBQ, some just in classic Korean food like Kimchi and Bibimbap. However, while wandering around The Star Vista, we came across this Korean Restaurant called Bornga, which had both Classic Food and BBQ, so we decided to give it a try….image

It was extremely packed when we requested for a table, so we ended up sitting outside, which was ok as it was quite a breezy Sunday evening. A straightforward menu, and an interesting placemats teaching you how to eat Korean BBQ for the beginners, haha… Oh yea, if you want to order Korean BBQ meat, u have to order at least two plates, and they also cook the meat for you, so don’t worry about it, just concentrate on stuffing your face, haha…

Just some of the sauces and sides that come along with your meal and BBQ meats, they are refillable, by the way. But they won’t very tasty, especially the Kimchi, which was just sour, sour, sour…

This is the rice you can order with your meal, which is called Chadol Dounjang Jjigae ($16.00) cooked in front of you with a broth, but it was slightly bland in my mind…

It is the Haemul Pajeon ($22.00) which is a Korean Pancake, not a seafood one, typo error in the caption… It was nice and crispy, but it lacked in taste, and was sticky on the inside, which gives it an odd texture…

On the top, is the HUGE plate of vegetables if you order the meats, in which you are supposed to wrap the beef in it, and dip in the sauces. The meat on the top is Ggot Sal ($38.00) was a 160g boneless, tender cut of beef. Like I said, the servers will cook it for you, so you don’t have to lift a finger. But, the beef itself was not as tender and juicy as I hoped, just above average in my mind. Now, the meat on the bottom is their signature dish there, which is called Woosamyeop ($28.00) which is 200g of thinly sliced Beef Brisket. This was the better one, stir-fried on the hotplate, it has nice and juicy, and it goes well with the vegetables and condiments. This is my favourite of the two!!!

In conclusion, this was not the best Korean Restaurant I have been to in Singapore, but it is above average, and taking into consideration that the servers cook the BBQ meats for you and the Beef Brisket, I would return again, if I has the budget to…. It was actually quite expensive if you think about it…
