There is no shortage of places that serve delicious mouth-watering Korean food in Singapore. The Hallyu wave has swept and hit Singapore a long time ago and there are plenty of well-established restaurants that serve all kinds of Korean cuisine.

For our Muslim readers (and everyone else really) who are looking for Korean food in Singapore, here are 7 Halal-certified restaurants that will definitely satisfy your cravings for Korean food!
1. Mukbang Korean Restaurant

2. Hanok by Masizzim
Hanok is the Halal version of the well-known (but not Halal) Korean restaurant Masizzim. Hanok specialises in a variety of traditional Korean dishes as well as Korean stews. One of their most popular dishes is the Galbi-Jim, also known as beef rib stew. Hanok’s signature stews are slow cooked in their special sauces and broths so that the meat is tender and flavourful once they reach your mouths. And wonderful news for those of you who cannot handle spicy, stews such as the Seafood Beef Stew has the option of spicy or non-spicy broths! Other crowd favourites include Beef/Crabmeat Rice Ball and Honey Mustard Cheese Egg Roll which would make yummy add-ons.
