New in town: Meokja by JUNGGA — Muslim-friendly and authentic Korean restaurant by a Korean-Muslim revert

As a Muslim foodie, I’d often find myself struggling to find authentic and Muslim-friendly Korean restaurants in Singapore, especially when so many of them claim to be genuine. With Meokja by JUNGGA I can rest easy with their claim.

Meokja by JUNGGA is helmed by Chef Jung SangWoo, a Korean-Muslim revert, and opened on 9 Oct 2022 at GR.iD.

When Chef Jung first arrived in Singapore, he realised that many fellow Muslims were not able to experience proper halal Korean food. This made him start a home-based business to share what authentic Korean food should taste like whilst using only halal ingredients. Meokja also means “let’s eat” in Korean.

It also offers lesser-known Korean dishes such as Tangsuyuk (S$11.90), which is a crispy and chewy fried chicken dish served with tangy sweet and sour apple sauce with actual pieces of apples in them. There’s also Eomuk Tang (S$8.90), a warm savoury soup packed with Korean fish cakes.

Those who are dining with company (or have a big appetite) can opt for the differing combo sets available. These combo sets include a combination of main dishes with drinks. One of the sets, Bunshik Set (S$30.80)includes a large TteokBokki, Eomuk Tang, Tuna Rice Balls and any two Coolpis drinks, which are Korean sodas.
