Conveniently located right outside King Albert Park MRT Exit B is Kong Cafe, a Korean cafe serving hearty meals and coffee.
The cafe is decked in minimalistic white walls with wooden tables and a splash of green from the several plants present. There are also lots of paintings and artworks on display here at Kong Cafe, which is unsurprising since the cafe is opened by a Korean artist, Hanna Mi Kim.
Food At Kong Cafe
A quick look around the tables around us and we noticed that almost everyone had a plate of wings. Having heard lots of good things regarding the Korean wings offered at Kong Cafe, we knew we had to try it for ourselves.
Honey Butter Wings
We have to say, this was one of the better Korean wings we’ve had so far. As cliché as it may sound, the Honey Butter Wings (6 for $15, 10 for $20) were an exact embodiment of ‘crispy on the outside, soft and juicy on the inside’.
Each wing was nice and evenly coated with the sauce, which was sweet and savoury.
Our only issue was that it didn’t taste very honey butter-ish. Instead, the sauce was more on the garlicky side. Not complaining though, the texture and taste of the wings were really good.
The wings are also available in a spicy sauce.
One of their newest items is the Bulgogi Bagel ($18). It is packed with stir-fried bulgogi, in-house pickled onions, pesto sauce and fresh spinach leaves.
The overall taste of the bulgogi tasted very earthy, due to the pesto and spinach leaves. You can taste a slight sweetness from the marinated bulgogi. Instead of just using lettuce, they opted for spinach leaves, which added more crunch to the entire bagel.
This could be quite a messy dish to eat as juices kept dripping out of the bagel.
We were quite impressed by the Bulgogi Ramyeon ($18) from the moment it was served to us. Visually, the dish is beautiful. The garnish played a part in making the dish feel more exquisite.
Unlike your usual spicy ramyeon, the broth for the Bulgogi Ramyeon is slightly more on the sweet side, probably cause of the bulgogi meat. It is a hearty bowl of noodles, comforting food especially for rainy days.
The price might scare some people away as we understand that some people might find spending $18 a bit too much for a bowl of ramyeon.
Well, the good news is, there’s no GST and Service charge here at Kong Cafe.
Korean Cafe in Bukit Timah
Overall, Kong Cafe is a great spot for brunch or to catch up with some friends over coffee along the Bukit Timah stretch. The cafe is easily accessible, and the wings are definitely worth the calories.
Maybe next time we’ll head back to try more interesting items such as their blueberry honey pizza.
