Insadong Korea Town, Resort World Sentosa

Insadong Korea Town, specialising in Korean food, has arrived in Singapore at Resort World Sentosa. For the first time in Singapore, you may savour authentic Korean food in Korean traditional setting. With over 200 types of authentic Korean dishes and a variety of street food. It feels like it brought me back to Seoul once again, missing all these food!

Insadong Korea Town is a replica of the famous Insadong Korea Street, one of the most memorable attractions in Seoul and represents the focal point of Korean traditional cuisine, culture and crafts. The food supplies are all air flown direct from Korea, as well as authentic Korean recipes brought in.

When dining at Insadong Korea Town, you can get your orders at the self-order kiosk. Once you ordered through the kiosk paying via cash, a slip of paper indicating your orders and number will be issued. Then move on to the kitchen counter to collect your orders! This is commonly seen in Korea and Japan probably.

Started off the meal with Iced Honey Citron Tea ($4). A balance of sweet and sour to the taste bud, very refreshing beverage to kick start our meal.

A must order drink on the menu for the Koreans, Watermelon Soju ($30). Best when paired with grilled bulgogi meat, such an awesome combination.

The usual starters for a typical Korean meal, Kimchi Pancake! 

Korean's iconic snack, Toppoki which is also known as Korean Rice Cake. Chewy!

Best dish for the cooling weather these days, Ginseng Chicken Soup ($28). It comes with a small portion of milk to pour into which makes it richer. The whole chicken is stuffed with glutinous rice as well.

Another Korean authentic dish would be, Bossam (S $15, L $25). It's basically napa wraps with pork belly, along with kimchi, red pepper paste and garlic. It does feel like I'm in Korea at that instant.

An Korean-Chinese dish, indeed a korean dish with a twist. Here's Xiao Long Bao in Kimchi Soup ($13) for 8 pieces. I was impressed at how well these go along together.

Another fusion of a Korean-Western dish, Pumpkin Spaghetti ($14). It sure looks rich and jerlat for a pasta but I've to say this is an example of 'looks are deceiving'. Tried it after some persuasion and I've to admit it taste really good.

Yet another Korean-Western dish, Beef Bulgogi Baked Rice ($15). It's a tad dry for me personally but no doubt it's a unique dish of pairing bulgogi and cheese.

I'm still all for Korean authentic dishes and here's one of my favourite pick for the night - Mushroom Beef Bulgogi Hotpot ($36) plus meat of your choice at $4. This is best for sharing, for at least 4 or more.

A kind Korean staff offer to cook and mix for us, thank you :)

We capped off the meal with desserts, here's Mixed Fruits Shaved Ice ($11). The fruits are drizzled with honey and vanilla gelato was smooth in texture. Overall it satisfied a sweet tooth like myself.

Next was this Red Bean Pancake ($7.80), my eyes went wide open when I saw it on the menu. I'm a big fan of red bean :P The one at Insadong Korea Town was decent, wish they are more generous with the azuki beans and less with the pancake flour.

Lastly, a famous korean street snack known as J-Cone ($6). You will see a number of people holding it in Resort World Sentosa, and it's from Insadong Korea Town. It's basically a corn snack in the shape of J, injected with vanilla soft serve within. For one person to finish it can be quite filling.
