Manbok is part of the growth of Korean culture in Singapore. Run by a Korean family, be prepared to do lots of sign language as the bulk of the wait staff do not speak English.
A simple eatery, the place serves relatively good Korean fare at fair value.
I started with the Haemul Jeon ($22), s beef stoup that was warm and hearty and did well to open up the palette.
I then tried the Yukgae Jang ($20), which is the Korean seafood pancake. It was quite tasty and they were generous on the ingredients.
From the BBQ menu I tried the Deung Sim ($38), which is a premium beef rib eye. The meat was quite tasty and a little searing was good enough.
With such a heavy meal, I decided to forgo on desserts. While the restaurant does have an air suction to take out most of the bbq smell, still be prepared to leave with some remnants of the after-smell on your clothes.
