Fast and tasty food

Went there on a weeknight for dinner. We ordered a kimchi soup, ginseng soup, chicken/beef bbq combo, the spicy rice cake and 3 cans of drinks. All the first 3 orders come with a small dish of ikan bilis and kimchi. The bbq combo comes with additional seaweed soup.

The order-taking process was simple and fast. The lady took our orders and relayed them to the kitchen. So by the time we reached to counter to pay, the food was already ready for collection. Fast! :)

I love the kimchi soup. It was spicy and tasty. They have the usual ingredients like kimchi, tofu, pork belly, tang hoon in there. What I really liked about it is that the soup is temperature hot like how soup should be, not just warm. I was hooked on to the spicy and tangy soup and finished it to the last drop. Even my kids loved it though it was too spicy for them.

Next is the ginseng chicken soup! It was temperature hot and delicious too. The soup was very flavorful with some chicken chunks and bits of glutinous rice in there. Loved it!

The bbq combo was alright, though I feel the beef was a bit too dry.

As for the spicy rice cake, the portion is quite small for the price of $3.50. As for the taste, at least the rice cake is not overly soft nor soggy, so I guessed that's good. But I guessed I won't be ordering this dish again.

Overall, a very affordable and tasty dinner, with fast service. Will definitely come back again!

Hwang's at NUS's University Town run by Mr Hwang is indeed a hidden find. Check out its wider than usual range of food at very affordable prices. I tried the cold noodles and pork bulgogi for dinner. They were delicious. The place packed a crowd during dinner time which indicates that the food is good and the queue clears fast. Situated at at a nice location, I would certainly go back for more.

Mr Hwang explained that some of their items are not available due to manpower shortage. Hope that will be resolved soon.

The environment there is like those American canteen layout whereby you take a tray and move along the line to grab 1stly the drinks, then order then finally to cashier, like a pipeline. They also play korean songs in the place with korean staff doing the servicing, it really feels nice.

The assortment of korean drinks here is fantastic, they even have the famous banana milk and other healthy and non gaseous drinks!! The food here is cheap and delicious with filling serving! At $4.50 you get to eat the hotplate marinated pork slides. All the food are prepared only upon order to whenever they serve the food to you, its sizzling hot. The Gingseng chicken soup is also very sweet and full of flavor. The kimchi fried rice is full of flavor and with an egg on top. Taste rather authentic. Every meal comes with small side dishes of kimchi and ikan bilis like in usual korean fare. They serve many other variety of food and side dishes like rice cake and kimchi pancakes as well.

The staff are very friendly and always greets us with their smile, the queue move fairly quickly even in peak hours.

For such affordable price and great tasting food, it would one of my favorite stall in school.
