Undeniably, Korean culture has taken the world by storm. And it is not just because of Kpop or Kdrama. Foodies regardless of age have fallen in love with KBBQ style of dining. Aside from the taste, grilling your food on the spot while catching up with your loved ones is fun and convenient. No wonder, KBBQ food business has been thriving around Yio Chu Kang.
