Chang Korean Charcoal BBQ Restaurant Review

Chang Korean Charcoal BBQ Restaurant is located at Dempsey Hill – the place where you can find many fine dining restaurants in Singapore, which is located near Orchard and Holland Districts. Shuttle Bus Service are available are different pick-up points of Orchard.

The interior of the restaurant has pretty good ambience.

Traditional Korean wooden floor seats are available if you come in a big group. There are also nice cosy rooms available.The best seats are probably along the windows. It gives a sense of serenity. Probably the restaurant is named after their excellent window view as “Chang” – from the word “창문 (窓門)” , which means window.

Many of the staff here has above average service. However, some non-Korean waitresses couldn’t understand me when I asked for “Gochujang”.

Ambience: 8.5 / 10
Service: 7 /10

Ggul Tteok(꿀떡) and Makgeolli (막걸리)

tteok and makgeolli

tteok and makgeolli

Koreans have lots of varieties of traditional sweet rice cakes or in Korean –  tteok (떡) which are usually made with glutinous rice flour. I do not usually like sweet stuff but I definitely can’t resist tteoks which are usually not too sweet. The above picture shows Ggul tteok (꿀떡) which literally means honeyed tteok.  Unlike the name, they are not stuffed with honey but with Korean syrup.

Usually tteoks are eaten with a cup of tea but I chose having them with a can of Makgeolli (막걸리) !
