After the successful launch of their first outlet at the Star Vista mall in mid October 2012, Bornga advanced into its second one in VivoCity.20130725-082143.jpg

This 130-seater outlet is divided into three areas with one section facing Sentosa.

Each grill is equipped with an extendable exhaust that looked alot like an elephant’s nose. It acts as a vacuum to educt smoke from around the barbeques. It looks humourously adorable and I seemed like a fool tickled by this strange object when I first saw it.

I love my pork fatty, especially those lovely bellies. Yes, I am on a diet but please allow me to indulge one in a blue moon?

Salt and pepper. Those are the two key ingredients essential to make these babies tasty. Keep it simple, that’s the recipe. You bet I kept my plate full with a mountain of these meaty treats.

Woosamgyup – $28 / 200g

Chef Paik’s patented recipe of thinly-sliced US beef short plate seasoned in BORNGA’s secret marinade.20130725-082242.jpgI did not heed the service staff’s advice of grilling these longer and I felt ashamed after sending one overdone slice into my mouth. They were gorgeous.

If you enjoy substantial bites of meats, you are going to love these.

Bornga Bulgogi, $45 (serves 2 to 3)

Beef fillets, tons of vegetables and glass noodles piled on a bubbling steamboat with Bornga’s sweet homemade gravy.

Dwaeji Gohchujang Barbeque , $36.

Served on a piping hot hotplate, these red spicy pork slices were first grilled in-house and fried with spring onions. If you wish to have something fast and quick, this could be it.

Bornga is definitely not your average Korean BBQ restaurant. I would however be thrilled if they could serve buffet instead of ala carte, you know what I mean.

*Thank you sixth sense and Bornga for the invitation, it was a great evening with a brimming tummy.
