Riding the tides of the K-Pop wave that has awashed Singapore is the cuisine of Korea. And who among us can say no to Korean barbeque (KBBQ), where meat lovers get to savour the tender juiciness of marinated beef, pork, and chicken grilled on the spot.

To top things off, there are also veg dishes served on the side, making sure you stay on track with your balanced diet while indulging in your love for meat.

And the best part? KBBQ is usually served buffet-style. This means that it’s usually pricey, but here are 9 affordable KBBQ restaurants in Singapore, promising to treat your tastebuds without nuking your wallet.
