Big Mama Korean Restaurant: Singapore Food Review
Last Updated: July 18, 2014
"Home-cooked Korean dishes"
I'd heard a lot of raving reviews about the authentic Korean dishes at Big Mama Korean Restaurant and how affordable it was. So here we are on another Korean food adventure.
Tip for readers
: reserve seats ahead
. This place gets packed with walk-ins fast and if you don't book, you probably won't get to eat unless you came at 6.30pm.
Big Mama Korean restaurant looks really simple, and is supposed to be a no-frills home-cooked restaurant. Close to no fixtures and just painted walls with blown up professionally taken photos of their dishes hanging. The restaurateur Ji-young Nam Gung
aka Big Mama, used to be a tutor and cooked Korean dishes for students studying in Singapore. Eventually she realized she could cook for a whole lot more people than just her Korean students. Big Mama also doesn't use MSG and really cooks like your mother. Thus Big Mama was born, a little off road near Tiong Bahru.
