A good Korean BBQ is every meat lovers dream. I mean, who can say no to savouring tender, juicy slabs of meat grilled on the spot right in front of you.

K-BBQ is usually served buffet-style which means it can get a little pricey but we found 6 affordable Korean BBQ spots in Singapore for you to satisfy your Korean food cravings.
