Thanks to the K-wave that swept the nation back in the early 2000s, Singapore is now home to many Korean food establishments, with many more continuing to pop up.

Korean food is also one of the more popular cuisines among Singaporeans, with the food portions being easily shareable and comforting. I mean, have you ever had Korean Army Stew? That’ll warm you right up on a rainy day.

Now, the Seoul Garden Group has come up with a new concept in the form of Seoul In A Sandwich.

The Taste Of Seoul In A Sandwich

This kiosk in the basement of Century Square might be small (okay maybe not that small), but the sandwiches sure come in big flavours.

As its name suggests, it serves up sandwiches with a Korean twist. Expect western sandwiches with Korean flavours.

Like this Bulgogi Cheesesteak ($8.50). It’s basically a Philly Cheesesteak sandwich, but it uses grilled Bulgogi beef instead.

The result is a sweeter flavour than the usual savouriness you’d get from a Philly Cheesesteak, that’s further accentuated by the sautéed onions and peppers.

The Seoul Street Toast ($6.50) is a neat stack of onion and cabbage omelette, chicken ham, and sliced cheese on white bread.

If you’re looking for something more comforting, how about going for the Kimchi Grilled Cheese ($5.50)? Cheddar and Mozzarella and Kimchi bits are sandwiched between 2 slices of white bread and grilled to cheese heaven.

But the most ambitious crossover sandwich has got to be the Army Stew-ich ($8.50). Just look at this monster of a sandwich.

This sandwich has stewed chicken hotdogs, chicken luncheon meat, tteokbokki, and daikon slaw slapped between ciabatta toasts. This already sounds filling to me.

On a side note, I’m bothered that they didn’t call this the “Bread-ae Jjigae”.

Seoul Sandwich has a few other sandwiches on their menu, including 2 sweet ones – the Matcha White Chocolate ($3.50) and the Citron Cream Cheese and Asian Pear ($4.50).

For first-timers, you can always approach any of the staff and they’ll give you recommendations on what to try.

As someone who loves their bread, and by extension, sandwiches, this makes me very happy.
