New eats: Comfort food with Asian roots for everyone


For quality Korean BBQ in a well-ventilated environment, check out BORNGA‘s third Singapore outlet. Top seller woo samgyup comprises thinly-sliced U.S. beef short plate seasoned in the restaurant’s secret marinade–the marbled meat remains vibrant unlike the usual dull strips in dark sauce. New on the menu: LA yangnyeom galbi ($40, marinated short rib), haemul pajeon ($22, seafood pancake), and hae mul dduck jjim ($32, seafood and rice cake). Soju goes for only $11 a pop, and the banchan variety will please hungry diners. Daily 11.30am-10pm. East Wing (Towers 3 & 4) #01-641/642. Tel: 6836 3291
