Singapore’s first and only jjamppong specialty restaurant – Nipong Naepong is back with a brand new menu, featuring unique fusion dishes such as Mala Ppong (comes in both dry or soup versions) – Mala-lovers will definitely like both versions, Iron-Plate Rice Series and Jjajangmyeon! I guess it’s time to jio all your food kakis down for a hearty Chinese-Korean feast! Maybe I should do the same too!
Honestly, I (We) couldn’t decide what was our favourite dish because they were all LEGIT good man! Even though I’m not a big fan of mala, the Mala Ppong at Nipong Naepong was really good (addictive)! Because the portion here is relatively huge, it’s best to jio more of your foodie friends here!
Melon Yoghurt Ade // $13.90
Before we dive straight into our heavy mains, we had this super refreshing and not overly sweet Melon Yoghurt Ade to quench our thirst. Love the texture and trust me, it rids off the greasiness when you start tackling your mains!
Seoul Bulgogi Iron-Plate Rice // $14.90
Oh my! The bulgogi was flavoursome, soft and tender! It wasn’t gamey at all! Paired really well with the rice and egg omelette on the side!
Hallasan Volcano Iron-Plate Rice // $14.90
Honestly, this wasn’t as spicy as it appears to be. I thought it was manageable (plus I can’t really take spicy food). The sauce really goes well with the mountain of rice (with seaweed, ebiko and mayonnaise)! SHIOK AH!
Jeju Spicy Pork iron-Plate Rice // $14.90
Another option for you to choose from if you like pork. Again, the pork was well-cooked, flavoursome and not too ‘porky’!
Chuncheon Dakgalbi Iron-Plate Rice // $14.90
This was my favourite iron-plate dish out of all! This set features spicy stir-fried chicken chunks, a jumbo-sized seaweed, pickled radish and ebiko rice ball, and an inviting puddle of molten mozzarella. It comes with tortilla, sour cream and kimchi.
Jjajangmyeon // $13.90
The rendition at Nipong Naepong reminded me of the Jjajangmyeon I had in Korea! Love the texture and the sauce! I can definitely wiped the entire bowl out myself!
Mala Ppong // Soup ($17.90) or Dry ($15.90)
Are you ready to take the heat? Even though it was spicy for me, I couldn’t help but to keep eating it cos it was so addictive! Couldn’t decide which version was better, so I guess order both (of course with friends)!
