How far would you go to try on new food? Luckily for me, it is easy to travel around Singapore due to their amazing public transport. So, this time I went to Hillview area, which is located in Bukit Batok. I was invited by my friend on her birthday to have dinner there. When she told me about this restaurant, I was excited and couldn’t wait to try it. They only make meal sets, which are different every day! Of course, there are some side dishes that are almost every day included in the set menu. The food they are served is Korean home-cooking style.
The restaurant is located in Hillview Community Club on the 1st floor. When we came, there was only 1 table left and the uncle let us sit there. After we sat, we saw a queue outside. How lucky! I only saw three people managing that restaurant. The couple, who are in charge of the dining hall, and 1 lady as a cook. That day they also have a special set with beef ribs soup, so the uncle asked us which set menu we wanted. We told him we wanted the normal set for 2 pax. The food took quite some time to prepare, but it was all worth it!
We can check the menu on their Instagram account @wangfamilykitchen. They posted every day what was on the set. We went there on June 16th, and their menu set consisted of Gimbap (Korean rolls), Yangnyeom-chicken (Seasoned Fried Chicken), Jjolmyeon (Spicy, chewy, sweet and sour cold noodles), Grilled Saba Fish (Grilled Mackerel), Miyeok Julgi Bokkeun (Stir-fried seaweed stem), Homemade Mashed Potato Korean Style, Gyeranmari (Rolled omelet), Kimchi, White Rice, plus Soup of the day which was Soybean Sprouts Soup. Don’t worry, they all came in a small portion. But yes, it IS still A LOT lol.
Of all these, I managed to finish Gimbap (Korean rolls), Yangnyeom-chicken (Seasoned Fried Chicken), Grilled Saba Fish (Grilled Mackerel), Miyeok Julgi Bokkeun (Stir-fried seaweed stem), Homemade Mashed Potato Korean Style, and White Rice. They were all delicious and I really enjoyed them. It can be considered as comfort food for me. Their Jjolmyeon (Spicy, chewy, sweet and sour cold noodles) actually was yummy as well but it was too spicy for me, unfortunately, so I couldn’t finish it. Well, the other reason was that I need to spare space for their dessert. Their kimchi
I am not a fan of omelets, and I also thought that their Gyeranmari (Rolled omelet) was too dry and not fluffy enough for my taste. Their Kimchi is also not that great in my opinion. It lacks spicy, sour, and salty taste, so it is rather bland. The Soybean Sprouts Soup was okay, actually, I almost finished it.
After we finished our meal, it was time to wait for the dessert. According to my friend, their desserts are always watermelon and a waffle. I wondered why no ice cream on the waffle, and I found out the answer when it came! I tried the waffle first and O.M.G.. it was sooo good! The outer was crispy, and when I bite it has a chewy texture. The sweetness was also on spot, just as I like it. The waffle was still warm as well! Meaning it was fresh from the kitchen. I was so happy after chomping it all. Happy tummy! And all that for only $17.90 nett. No service charge, No GST. Wow.
I definitely will come back again next time! And maybe will also try the coffee shop next to it. I heard they sell good coffees.
