Chicken ginseng soupKorean food is all the rage these days and if you’re set on either BBQ chicken or Korean BBQ and skipping the broths, you’ll be missing out on some of the best that Korea has to offer. The broths and soups range in spice, intensity and flavour, but one thing’s for sure, they will all be delicious and full of goodness for your entire body.

When in need of a stew, just look out for the “jjigae” or “tang” at the end. We found it difficult to choose the best Korean restaurant in Singapore for this list so we decided to put the type of stew and then the restaurant we recommend to taste it at below. For our selection of great Korean restaurants in Singapore, check out this article.

• Budae-jjigae (army stew), a sort of sausage stew at Seoul Jjimdalk at City Square Mall in Kallang.

• Soondubu-jjigae, soft tofu stew at Superstar K Tanjong Pagar.

Kimchi or doenjang-jjigae, kimchi or fermented soybean paste stew at Seoul Restaurant at the Regent Hotel in Tanglin.

Samgyetang, ginseng with whole chicken soup at Hansik Korean Family Restaurant in Kovan.

If all else fails, just get a standard ramen, it’s sure to taste better than making it yourself at home and the sides comes standard with most meals.

8. Shabu Shabu Gen

Wagyu beefShabu shabu, also known as a hot pot, is a type of do-it-yourself clear broth. It’s similar in theory to Korean BBQ, where you sit around a communal table and cook your own delicious soup to your own taste.

There are a few shabu shabu restaurants in Singapore ranging in styles from Japanese to Chinese and Korean. Yet the poshest place to conjure up a tasty broth is Shabu Shabu Gen in Tanglin. Under the Les Amis umbrella (think Aoki at the Shaw Centre), this fine-dining extravaganza only serves premium cuts of meat, like Kagoshima and Hida wagyu beef. Try the truffle oyakodon (chicken/egg donburi) for something a little more special than the average. It is expensive, but so worth it.

Opening hours:
