Googled “Best Korean BBQ Singapore” and Bornga came up. I am still on quest to look for a Korean BBQ place that can beat Sydney Madang which is the reigning champion of Korean BBQ in my heart!
I did not take pictures of every single things that came to the table. I recall them giving us some soup-thing at the start of the meal.
The banchan comes in HUGE plates!
You don’t get your usual straw woven basket of veggies here, you get one LONG plate! I doubt any normal eater can finish all those greens!
We also order few side dishes to go with the BBQ:
Seafood pancake tasted like Sio Bee from my hometown. I don’t really mean it in a good way, sadly.
The Jap Chae was too peppery for my taste. Disappointing.
I ordered the pork belly and marinated pork loin. Did not really take picture of the marinated pork sadly (we were too hungry!).
The taste was a letdown. My Dad’s comment was that the marinated pork tasted like bak kwa, which I couldn’t really argue with (rofl). The pork belly didn’t leave much impression on me.
They gave some desert-soup-thing at the end of the meal, too. Reminiscence of a berry-based palate cleanser I had in some fine-dining establishment.
I had high expectation of it, but this one fell short. Considering how big the chain is (or so I thought when I Googled them up), I was looking forward to a good meal (maybe average at worst), but wow, I am starting to doubt my tongue. I was a bit amused that some of the dishes tasted like some things I would get in my home town, considering the name is “Bornga”, which probably meant “Home” (“Home” as in your place of origin, that is).
