This is newly opened at Raffles City basement. This is Bibigo and their selling point is that their food is a healthier choice. It is at the forefront to promote Korean culture.
If you ordered bibigo rice, bibimbap or hot stone rice, firstly, you can choose between the normal rice, barley, brown rice or black rice. Then your choice of topping of beef, chicken, tofu or prawns. Lastly you choose your sauces – little disposable packets of Kohot or Ssam hot sauce and sesame oil to mix into your rice.
I had the seafood tofu. It tasted healthy seriously. I would have preferred if the potion was a little bigger. As for the Char Bulgogi, it was very tasty. A pity they don’t offer a free-flow of lettuces to go with the meat.
In order to make this a more authentic experience, the restaurant should offer more varieties of ban chan (side dishes) besides the usual cabbage kimchi and ikan bilis, as well as free-flow of lettuces. The variety on the menu was limited. You will not expect to see the traditional naeng myeong (cold noodles). It was disappointing that their objective to promote Korean culture is missing in many aspects.
Char Bulgogi – $22
Hot Stone Black Chicken – $16
Seafood Tofu – $14
