Patbingsoo Korean Dining House

Conveniently located at the basement of Plaza Singapura, Patbingsoo Korean Dining House, opened by the same team who brought us the wildly popular Seorae Korean Charcoal BBQ Restaurant, is the first eatery that brings together both bingsu and the hottest trending food from South Korea (or at least their take on it, since they’re all inspired by the founders’ experience with Korean street snacks).

Apart from the obvious wide selection of bingsus, they have some delicious-sounding Korean dishes, such as their Rolling Cheese Pork Ribs, a combination of premium mozzarella and cheddar cheese with thick pork ribs doused in spicy gochujang ($38.90, there’s also a non-spicy version) and the House Special Ramyeon, a bowl of noodles, spam and nori in spicy soup ($11.90), as well as smaller, shareable plates of tteokkochi ($5.90), popcorn chicken ($5.90) and honey-garlic or spicy chicken wings ($11.90).

After you’re done with all their savoury goodness, it’s only natural to move on to what they’re known for. Each of their bingsus are named after various metro stations in Seoul, and are highly Instagrammable, and not to mention, appetizing/ Choose from a bowl of snowy shaved ice topped with condensed milk, ice cream and red bean; the Bibim Patbingsoo, which has fruits, nata de coco, strawberry sauce and vanilla ice cream ($11.90); or their new creation, the Sinsa Patbingsoo, where they use special tools to cut and maintain the shape of the rock melon and place red beans, cornflakes and vanilla ice cream inside ($14.90). While they do serve a small selection of soju, makkholi and smoothies, you’re better off having their desserts than booze here.
