Go! K-Jjajang is a Korean Chinese jjajangmyeon specialty restaurant serving unique tangsuyuk, shrimp toast & more

Oh, the joys of jjajangmyeon. I love having more speciality jjajangmyeon restaurants to choose from — the more the merrier. If you, like me, crave for the iconic Korean-Chinese dish a little too often, Go! K-Jjajang in Telok Ayer is one such place worth checking out.

Helmed by Chef Choi Chil Sung who has over 20 years of experience cooking Chinese cuisine, Go! K-Jjajang in Amoy Street is the sister restaurant of Go! K-BBQ. You can expect top-quality Korean Chinese fare in generous sharing portions with lunch deals for those working in the area.

Naturally, the Go K Jjajang (S$14), or the restaurant’s signature jjajangmyeon, takes centre stage — chewy noodles tossed in a delectable black bean sauce chock full of meat and onions.

There’s even a spicy version at S$15 for those who like it hot.

You might be tempted to just order a serving of jjajangmyeon and the standard Go K Tangsuyuk (S$28), Korea’s version of sweet & sour pork.

However, the restaurant also offers the unique Guangdong Tangsuyuk (S$28) and Gochoo Maneul Tangsuyuk (S$33), tangsuyuk with chilli and spicy garlic respectively. The latter is topped with garlic chips, chopped garlic, and different types of chilli padi — a very fusion amalgamation of flavours.

As a matter of fact, don’t sleep on the other ala carte dishes (kinda like Korean zi char) on the extensive menu.

For starters and snacks, you’ve got the likes of Menbocha (S$18), or fried shrimp toast, popularised by Korean celebrity chef Lee Yeon Bok, and Yangjangpi (S$35), seafood and vegetables in mustard sauce.

Heartier mains include Kkanpunggi (S$38), deep-fried chicken in hot pepper sauce, Cream Joongha Saeu (S$42), fried shrimp in cream sauce, and Go K Bokkeumbap (S$14), fried rice with pork and black bean sauce. I do love the sound of that.

Although the Haemul Jjamppong (S$18) would be your best bet if you’re craving something hot and soupy, the lesser known Samsun Nooroongji Tang (S$38), or scorched rice soup, might just do the trick.

Go! K-Jjajang labels itself as “the best Korean restaurant in Singapore” on social media — you can be the judge of that.
