We appreciated how they automatically changed the grills when they started looking charred without us even asking.

Supulae’s meat comes in sets for two to three diners. When combined with Korean side dishes, rice, soup and steamed egg, you’re definitely getting more than what you bargained for!

Go! K-BBQ is a must-go for meat connoisseurs when it comes to the best Korean BBQ in Singapore. This is especially so given the effort that goes into preparing the meat!

Once done, the staff will check that the grill is 320 degree celsius before grilling the meat. 

Worried you’ll mess up the precious aged meat and end up over or undercooking it? You’ll be glad to hear that the staff will do all the grilling for you, so much so that there are signs asking you to leave it to them. As the meat is aged for a fixed period of 15 days, there’s limited quantities for sale. That’s why you should make a reservation with your meat of choice prior to the visit to prevent disappointment!

When it comes to authenticity, Wang Dae Bak offers the best Korean BBQ in Singapore by using charcoal.

Charbroiled meat aside, there’s plenty to love about Korean BBQ at Wang Dae Bak! Firstly, you can get creative with eggy side dishes due to the free flow egg mixture that’s refilled on request.
