Interestingly, “Bap Sang” means “table where meals are enjoyed”, the same can be said for the dining ambience and seating in the restaurant. The dining area is large and spread over a bare concrete floor. Furthermore, you pass through a small market (Lee market) area selling various Korean food produce and food to-go, such as ramen, sauces and condiments.

Moreover, the restaurant sits on the pedestrian bridge linking Suntec north wing to the east wing between tower 2 and 3. It provides a great overlooking view of the Suntec Fountain of Wealth in the background especially if you get a window seat. You might remember the mall being home to Wolf Burgers where we visited them at Pasarbella.

Great for small groups

Also, you can pick on the skewers like a satay on your main dish, or split them out of a plate for sharing. Also, another go-to dish is their Egg Jjim ($5.80). It is also known as Gyeran Jjim (also known as egg Jjim) is a mellow and clear dish which is paired well with rice and goes well in neutralising the more harsh fermented items on the menu.

In addition, service is prompt and friendly, with food served promptly too with all dishes served within 15 minutes from ordering. You also get free-flow of Malt wheat tea as a drink. Also, your serving cutlery uses metal chopsticks and spoons just like an eatery in Korean. You can’t get any more Korean than that.
