Located right at the taxi stand entrance of Clark Quay, Boss BarBQ is a well established brand name in Korea with more than 280 outlets in Korea. But before you close this page because you do not want to dine at a place where the food smell leaves with you, Boss BarBQ is different in that they cook the food for you, ensuring good quality, less effort and you can leave without telling the whole world that you just had barbecue.
Down to the food, I would recommend opening up with traditional rice wine which is served in a pot. Increases the happiness quotient after a long day in the office and also helps numbs the taste buds if you are going to have some of the traditional spicy items to come.
For some soul food, start off with the traditional chicken soup. Unlike many other Korean restaurants in which the soup is bland, the soup by itself here has sufficient essence of the chicken. However, if you are one of those who has strong taste buds, do add a little salt in the mix.
For those looking for milder items, stick to the Deoji Galbi (barbecued pork ribs), the Bo Ssam (steamed pork belly) and the Boss Fried Wings. Meat is tender and these dishes would not burn your toungue.
However, Boss BarBQ is about offering authentic Korean food so if spice is your thing, go ahead for the Goebaengyi, a spicy topshell salad and the Spicy Fried Chicken, dishes ideal in the winter perhaps.
The place however does not just end with the food. At 11pm everyday except Monday, the stage turns in to a Korean disco, with live performances by a k-pop girl band. This is definitely a first in Singapore where people can have dinner before being entertained by Korean singers and a DJ - a all in one concept that I believe can do well in Singapore given the current Korean culture craze.
