They held their grand opening event on 7 Dec and have already garnered 300 reviews. Diners have noted they offer dishes under S$20 and even spotted a no GST sign outside. With the GST hike next year, places like this are a godsend.

For those wondering what ‘pocha’ is, it is short for pojangmacha. That’s a Korean word meaning “covered wagon” and refers to the carts from which street vendors sell comfort food. 

That’s why Hankang Pocha has staples like their Kimchi Stew (S$12), which has the option of Tuna or Pork meat.

Both have their own array of meats so it’s up to your personal preference. Another 2 good options are the Hankang BBQ Platter (S$38) or Stone Plate Kimchi BBQ (S$26).

If your group craves Korean fried chicken instead, they have the Fried Chicken Platter (S$40) consisting of 4 flavours – original, soy, garlic and spicy.
