This Affordable Korean Army Stew In A Hawker Centre Will Leave You Feeling Seoul Shiok

Korean food has seen a surge of popularity ever since the rise of KPOP nearly a decade ago. With multiple Korean food chains popping up all over Singapore, it’s easy to satisfy any Korean food cravings.

From fried chicken to Korean BBQ, we’re really spoilt for choice. However, most Korean restaurants are pricey. What we need, is good and affordable Korean food.

Located at Fareground, on the 2nd level of the Pasir Ris Central Hawker Centre, this humble hawker stall serves up authentic Korean food at affordable prices.

Meet Seoul Shiok.

Seoul Good, Seoul Shiok

Having opened their first stall in Sengkang, Seoul Shiok now brings their affordable Korean fare to Pasir Ris.

We’re all familiar with those days when we’re craving Korean food but the coffeeshop downstairs only sells the cheap, overly salty “Korean” kimchi ramyeon and hotplates. (Is it just us or does every coffeeshop nowadays have a stall like that?)

Seoul Shiok aims to bridge that gap and provide authentic and affordable Korean fare.

Seoul Shiok serves up 3 different sizes of Korean Army Stew. There’s the Mini Army Stew ($7.90 without cheese, $9.40 with cheese), the Army Stew ($24.90), and the Army Stew with Cheese Dip ($29.90).

The Mini Army Stew is perfect for 1 person and comes with a generous portion of ramyeon, luncheon meat, hot dog, artificial crab stick, kimchi, and pork belly slices.

Mini Army Stew ($7.90, $9.40 With Cheese)

The broth, while not overly spicy, does still work up a sweat on our foreheads. Maybe it was just a really warm day. Either way, the Mini Army Stew is satisfying and filling.

If you’re coming with a group of friends or family, Seoul Shiok also allows you to completely customise your Army Stew With Cheese Dip from a list of ingredients.

Customise Your Meal At Seoul Shiok

For sides, we highly recommend their Korean Fried Chicken Wings (2 pieces for $3.90, 6 pieces for $11.50, 12 pieces for $22.90) which come in 3 flavours, Original, Spicy, and Soy Garlic.

Korean Fried Chicken Wings ($3.90 for 2, $11.50 for 6, $22.90 for 12)

Our favourite is the Soy Garlic-flavoured chicken wings which are twice-fried to perfection in a chunky, crispy batter, before being dunked in a sweet soy sauce and garlic marinade. Each bite is Seoul Shiok!

The chicken wings are fried twice. First to cook the chicken wings, and the second time to crisp up the batter, so your chicken wings stays crispy.

Other items on the menu include various rice bowls, kimchi soup, soy bean soup, ramen, and even tteokbokki with cheese!
