1. Mukshidonna Singapore

“Have your food, pay and leave” is what this restaurant is asking you to do as the term Muk-shi-don-na means Eat (Muk), Rest (Shi), Pay (Don), Leave (Na) when translated in English. This restaurant originates from Myeongdong, Seoul. So, even if you can’t travel all the way to South Korea, you can just get your fix of their Budae Jiggae right here in Pasir Ris!

Tucked away in the corner of Market Square @ Downtown East, Mukshidonna serves boiling pots of stew with soft and chewy tteokbokki (Korean rice cakes) on a gas stove. You can customize your stew according to your own preference. There are 5 different flavours ranging from cheese, mushroom, mussels, bulgogi and sausages 😍

West-siders, you’ll love this one! Gracing the West side of Singapore with its presence, FLO is a Korean restaurant but with a twist as they serve Western-fusion cuisine as well. So if you’re on a hunt for Korean food but you’re bringing along someone who’d rather stick to pastas, do consider FLO.

9. DoSiRak

Looks can be very deceiving so don’t be fooled! These may look like little pints of ice-cream but what’s inside is actually so much healthier.


Credit: @dosiraksg on Instagram

Dosirak too adopts the DIY (do-it-yourself) concept but emphasises on the idea of having a quick and healthy takeaway. Vegetables are not heavily cooked so that you won’t miss out on the nutrients your body needs. Wherever cooking is needed, any kind of MSG or refined sugar are not welcomed in these little bundles of joy.

10. 4 Fingers Crispy Chicken

As if we haven’t talked about fried chicken enough, here is another alternative restaurant to enjoy flavourful fried chicken. What’s interesting is that this establishment is not from Korea or from any other country but a home-grown Singaporean brand!

If you want a healthier option, 4 Fingers serves a variety of salads too! A pretty straightforward menu but with such unique pangs of flavours that will make all 4 of your fingers curl in, you’ll be leaving the place with a huge thumbs up!
