Discovering new, low-key, or hidden Korean restaurants brings me great joy. Be it tteokbokki, hwe, or jjajangmyeon, I can never say no to Korean food (AKA one of my favourite cuisines in the entire world), and I’m sure some of you feel the same.
If you frequent East Village along Upper Changi Road, chances are that you’ve probably come across Dalcomhan Bam Korean Restaurant.
Previously known as Dalbam, the relatively hidden restaurant is helmed by the team behind the well-loved Doong Ji Korean Restaurant in Katong, so they’re certainly not new to the flourishing Korean F&B scene.
Expect to find comforting classics you cannot go wrong with, such as Seafood Pancake (S$19), Honey Butter Chicken (S$18.50), and Army Stew (S$35), alongside grilled meats straight off the barbeque, including Beef Bulgogi (S$19.50) and Pork Collar BBQ (S$18.50). Koreans are masters of all things sweet, spicy, and cheesy, after all.
Dalcomhan Bam has even jumped on the trendy rosé bandwagon (a creamy and spicy Korean sauce base) with Rosé Tteokbokki (S$15.50) and Rosé Rice (S$14.90).
Fulfil your Korean street food cravings with some Beef Gimbap (S$11.90), Steamed Egg with Corn Cheese (S$10.90), or even a Cream Cheese Apple Pie Roll (S$8.90).
To get the most bang for your buck, drop by on weekdays (11am–3pm) for lunch sets from S$9.90+ and tuck into hearty bowls of Jja Jang Myeon, Spicy Pork BBQ, and Jokbal Rice.
Reservations can be made by calling +65 6214 0886.
East Village is slowly becoming a hotspot of hidden food gems — don’t forget to drop by for lunch (and a snack) if you’re ever in the area.
