I've been meaning to post this for the longest time but always failed to do so until now. Maybe it is also partly due to the fact that I am way past my cravings for Korean food. But still, Kko-Kko Nara is worth visiting if you happen to go to Singapore.
Located in Tanjong Pagar, Kko-Kko Nara is housed in one of the district's famous shophouse row. Very picturesque. Of course, the food tastes great as well.
We've tried a lot of dishes at Kko-Kko Nara but I'll just mention three favorites such as this lovely bowl of bibimbap.
Bibimbap is a complete meal in itself, with protein, carbohydrates, and veggies. It is a common Korean meal that is very easy to whip up. Here at Kko-Kko Nara, one get to taste it in its purest form.
Galbi Tang is another favorite. This comforting soup doesn't just warm the stomach, in fact it has ingredients that has healing properties. It can be eaten as is, or with rice. Yes, rice.
Here now is the famous Budae Jjigae a.k.a. Korean Army Stew. This colorful stew is really a no-brainer especially if you know of its origins. Having a filling meal during the war is next to non-existent so whoever thought of incorporating several different ingredients to create this delicious stew is a genius. If you'll notice, there's noodles, luncheon meat, sausage, mushrooms, canned beans, etc. This is a popular choice for families or large groups.
This is how Kko Kko Nara looks on the outside. You'd be surprise because it is very spacious inside and even has a second floor.
