Since travelling to Korea is pretty much still out of the question for now, we can only scour Singapore for restaurants to indulge in some authentic Korean food.


We found Pocha in a Forest, a new bistro at Prinsep Street serving up Korean-style street food and alcohol, while also recreating the iconic pojangmacha vibe with its space.

Read on to find out more!

In case you didn't know, a pojangmacha is a small tent usually set up along the streets of Korea, selling street food like tteokbokki, kimbap and hotteok.

To recreate that same vibe, Pocha in a Forest brought in a red tent and yellow plastic chairs that are often seen in pojangmachas. The colourful lights are also a familiar sight! Take a seat in the tent and you will be instantly transported back to the bustling streets of Korea.

Apart from the tent, Pocha in a Forest also has many Insta-worthy spots, thanks to the neon lights decorating the walls.

Of course, one cannot miss out on downing some soju shots while at a Korean bistro! Prices range from $18 per bottle to $30 for a jug of Milkis Soju.

Pocha in a Forest's Ice Beer (from $15) is also a must-try! Beer will be served in a frozen mug where ice flakes will float in your drink as it melts. Order the Dried Pollack Fish to go with it too.

Gather some friends and get a taste of Korea soon!
