Why do the Easties always get the good stuff?
Two Hana is a cafe in Century Square serving up Korean-Italian fusion food.
Korean food has become very popular in Singapore and many Korean restaurants have popped up over the years. The problem, however, is that they all serve pretty much the same things.
Two Hana stands out from the rest by taking traditional Italian dishes and giving them a Korean twist.
Like the Korean Seafood Cioppino ($12). A Cioppino is a Italian-American fish stew that also includes other seafood such as crab, clams, shrimp, scallops, squid, and mussels.
You can choose to have your Cioppino with tofu or a bread roll.
Another dish to look out for is the Braised Gochujang Lamb Shank ($24). The lamb shank is fork tender due to the long braising, and the accompanying gravy uses gochujang, resulting in a slightly spicier variant of the classic lamb shank gravy.
Also, this lamb shank comfortably feeds 2, so be careful not to over-order.
For sides, go for the Kimchi Mac and Cheese ($9), Korean Cauliflower Fritters ($8), and the Seafood Mandu with Tteokbokki Cheese Sauce ($8).
If you’re looking for a traditional Mac and Cheese, you’re looking in the wrong place. The one served here comes as a fried cube of kimchi-flavoured mac and cheese.
If you find this too jelak to finish, try it with the accompanying chilli sauce which is a sucker punch to your throat because of the chilli padi. Try it. I dare you.
Now I love Cauliflower Cheese, or any form of Cauliflower, so these Korean Cauliflower Fritters make me very happy. Each pale florette is covered in dakgangjeong sauce, giving them a sweet, spicy flavour.
Lastly, the Seafood Mandu with Tteokbokki Cheese Sauce. For those who are unfamiliar, mandu is the korean version of a gyoza. It’s basically a dumpling.
The ones here come served with cheese sauce and topped with tteokbokki. It’s a lot of textures, so take your time to chew.
Prices at Two Hana are rather affordable, with nothing beyond $24. And the best part is that the prices are already inclusive of GST and there’s no service charge because everything is self-service.
Two Hana also has plenty of lunchtime and afternoon tea promotions available. Do check their Facebook page for any ongoing promotions.

For our Muslim friends, don’t worry. Two Hana is in the midst of finalising their Halal certification, so hang tight!
In the meantime, I’m going to plan how to move to the East side because I’m getting district envy.
