Great for party of 4

Went with 3 other friends to Yoogane. Love the service staff there for their attentiveness and also the speed of their service. Our food is served in five minutes, Seafood and Chicken Galbi, with 2 servings of ramen. The Korean Seafood Pancake took a while to come but the taste was so amazing! I'm not a big kimchi fan but my friends love it and they were thankful for the free flow kimchi at Yoogane. I love the strawberry sauce for the cabbage.

The food might be pricey, but I think with 4 people, it's acceptable. We paid about $25 per person. We are happily full when we finish the meal. Love how they have the charging for our cellphones as well! The best thing is that they don't really chase us after we finish our food, so we can actually sit around for a while to enjoy and talk.

Tasty korean galbi

Full review: http://www.jacqsowhat.com/2015/01/yoogane-singapore-westgate-mall.html

The last time I saw yoogane was in Seoul, where they have several branches all over in South Korea. I'm glad they've arrived in Singapore. We ordered the signature Yoogane's Chicken Galbi at $18.90 per pax, minimum 2 person to order. The dining concept at Yoogane is that you order a Galbi as your main dish, and add on fried rice, ramyeon, dokboki, cheese etc. In this case, we ordered an additional fried rice $3.90 which has been fried together with our pan of grilled galbi. We were seated quickly after 10mins of wait in the queue at Westgate. There are currently 2 outlets in Singapore and I guess the queue at Bugis is way longer than Westgate? Be sure to check Yoogane out for authentic korean galbi, the only obstacle to beat is the long waiting time.

Great Tasting Korean Chicken Galbi

Full Yoogane review here: http://ivanteh-runningman.blogspot.sg/2014/12/yoogane.html


A popular galbi franchise founded in 1981 in the city of Busan, in Yeongnam region, South Korea, Yoogane has since gone international, opening its doors in Singapore in May 2014. Yoogane specialises in chicken galbi, which refers to marinated chicken meat that is grilled on a hot pan. The meat itself is marinated in ganjang sauce, a type of soy sauce made from fermented soy beans, giving it a savoury, sweet, and spicy taste.

Ambience at Yoogane resembles a typical Korean barbecue, with large tables sectioned off with low partitions, bright flourescent lighting and a high ceiling. The open space allows for air circulation, always important in a Korean barbecue, and although the smell of grilled meats does still cling to you, it's not too strong. The tables themselves are sparse but functional, spacious enough to accomodate the large grilling pan, as well as several side dishes. I did find the low hanging cabinets under the table irritating though, as my legs kept banging against it.

Service at Yoogane is very good... when it's not crowded. Staff greet you, give you attention, and are knowledgable enough to advise on the menu. They're also trained by chefs from the Korea outlets to assist customers to cook / prepare the food at the table, though they're only able to do this when it's not crowded. Or, you can choose to cook the food yourself, but do heed their advice on preparation. Due to the grill-at-table nature of galbi, there is quite a bit of work in setting up, and tearing down, during your meal, so staff are almost always circling around to assist. Thumbs up for that!

Food at Yoogane is focused on their speciality of chicken galbi. This is typically paired with other ingredients like seafood and vegetables, all cooked together on the hot grilling pan. Communal dining is a must here, as orders are for a minimum of 2 diners, although I find portions to be slightly small. However, taste is very good, their ganjang sauce pairs well with meat, vegetables, and starch! Yoogane also offers a free-flow salad bar, although variety is limited. I personally find prices slightly high due to the small portion sizes, budget about SGD $32 or more per person for a meal here.

I sampled the Chicken Galbi With Chukkumi Octopus (SGD $43.80 for Minimum 2 diners), and the Combination Dokboki / Ddukbokki / Tteokbokki (SGD $6.90), which comes with a trio of rice cakes, including traditional / original, sweet potato, and cheese rice cakes. Each order of galbi is served with a medley of fresh vegetables (spring onions, leeks, daikon radish, cabbage). All the ingredients are cooked together until the ganjang sauce coats everything.
