Heads up, fellow Korean BBQ lovers, for we have some good news for you! The ever-popular E!GHT Korean BBQ has just opened its second outlet at Shaw Centre with a bigger and juicier menu to boot.

Good things should be shared, and after a delectable experience at E!GHT’s flagship outlet at Clark Quay, we just can’t wait to tell you more about our experience.

Here’s why E!GHT Korean BBQ ought to be on your to-eat list:

E!GHT’s Signature 8 Colours Set

With the restaurant named after this dish, the 8 Colours Set is without doubt, the pride and joy of E!GHT Korean BBQ.

As its name suggests, you’ll be able to savour 8 mouth-watering strips of pork belly, all marinated in 8 different flavours.

The list of flavours to expect, in the recommended order of tasting are: wine, original, garlic, herb, curry, miso, red pepper paste, and finally kalbi.

Included in the set are some side dishes (such as kimchi) as well as seafood bean paste stew.

How’s that for a fulfilling meal?

The proper and oh-so-good way to eat Korean BBQ: wrap the meat inside a lettuce leaf, add kimchi and sauce, and stuff it all into your mouth!

Here’s the seafood bean paste stew that comes with the set!

The 8 Colours Set costs $98, and serves 3-4 people.

If you’re looking for something less filling, you could also go for smaller sets such as the Flower Pork Set ($68) or the 4 Colours Set ($58).

As with the 8 Colours Set, all of these sets come with side dishes and seafood bean paste stew.

If you’re wondering why the meat appears to be slightly pricey, it’s because all of these sets feature Mangalitsa pork, a top-grade Hungarian variety. We can vouch for its quality – it is incredibly juicy and tender.

In fact, Mangalitsa is said to be the “Kobe beef” of pork! Apparently, it is lower in cholesterol, and possesses higher levels of zinc and iron as compared to other types of pork. You’re definitely getting your money’s worth here.

More than just pork

If you’d like more than just BBQ pork, don’t worry, because the restaurant serves other dishes too!

From Beef Bulgogi Bibimbap ($18) to Kimchi Fried Rice ($8) and Seafood Pancake ($20), there’s definitely enough variety for you to complete your meal as you wish.

Those who’re on a tighter budget can also consider the weekday set lunches and specials -rice and stew sets from $8.

Kimchi Fried Rice with Mozzarella, Mangalitsa Pork, Bonito Flakes, and Egg

One of the comfort foods of Korean cuisine – Kimchi fried rice!

Some house brew, anyone?

As any Korean will know, no Korean BBQ meal is complete without some good alcohol.

Keeping in line with this practice, E!GHT Korean BBQ offers a great selection of drinks on its menu as well.

While standard fare such as beer and soju can be found on the drinks menu, the highlight we feel has definitely got to be their flavoured makgeoli (fermented Korean rice wine), all of which are brewed in-house.

Diners can choose from several flavours, such as the new Organic Honey Makgeolli ($35), as well as the Yucha Makgeolli ($35), Passionfruit Makgeolli ($35) and Joo Brew ($28).

We particularly liked the Yucha Makgeolli since it was so refreshing, with the right amount of sweetness – definitely the perfect complement to a savoury meal!

Full service amidst a comfortable setting

With a seating capacity of 80, the new outlet at Shaw Centre looks to be just as spacious – if not even more so – than its Clark Quay counterpart. [=

The place is large and spacious – no worries about bringing a large group of friends here then!

You can also expect full service at E!GHT, where staff will prepare all the food for you. All you really need to do is eat.

Perhaps the most attractive point of all – besides the food – would be the restaurant’s effective ventilation system, which guarantees that you’ll leave the place without smelling like BBQ for the rest of the day. How awesome is that?

So there you have it!

Sounds delectable, doesn’t it?

Now that you know what lies in store for you, all that’s left to do is to head to town and satisfy your carvings!

Best of all, both outlets are centrally located and easily accessible, which means they are convenient for everyone.

Bon appétit!
