This follows Chef Jung’s first restaurant, MyokjaHe continues his project to bring authentic Korean cuisine to the Muslim community in Singapore. Since Muslim-friendly East Asian food is difficult to find here, we decided to head to Sangwoo Street to review their food.

Food on Sangwoo Street
Sangwoo Street has a small, focused menu with a selection of gimbap and bibimbap along with kimchi jjigae and teokbokki.
We started with Ttokbokki ($5)topped off $1.50 to cheese. Aside from the rice cakes, the dish also comes with a fried fish ball cut into two parts.
While I enjoyed the QQ texture of the teokbokki itself, my dining companion and I felt that the sauce was a bit sweet. The cheese also didn’t melt enough, so it was a little crumbly when eating it. However, its saltiness helped balance out the sweetness of the sauce.
the Sao Gimbap ($7) It was my personal favorite – it has pickled radishes, carrots, cucumbers, eggs and fried shrimp with mayonnaise sauce.
I liked the crunch of the vegetables and the fried shrimp batter, which gave some contrast to the softness of the rice and eggs. The sauce also added some moisture and flavor to the dish as a whole, and helped bring all the ingredients together.
Then, we had it Kimchi jjigae ($9.50). It stars kimchi, silken tofu, and chicken luncheon meat served in a refreshing soup. It also comes with a bowl of rice, which pairs well with the soup itself and its ingredients, making the meal more filling.
However, my dining companion and I agreed that the lack of fresh protein in this dish made it somewhat unsatisfying. If I were to go back, I would try them Fried chicken ($8.50) or Bulgogi Bibimbap ($9) Instead for something heartier.
Atmosphere on Sangwoo Street
Sangwoo Street occupies a stall inside Kedai Kopi, a small all-halal café located directly across from Yishun metro station And Yishun Bus Interchange.
Kedai Kopi doesn’t look like your average coffee shop, with rows of string lights, brightly colored signs, and wood-topped dining tables, making it feel like you’re in a mall food court.
There’s no air conditioning, though, so it’s a little stuffy. Fortunately, the place wasn’t crowded when we visited on a Friday afternoon, so we had to choose one under the fan.
Given its proximity to the subway station, Sangwoo Street is worth a try if you’re looking for Muslim-friendly options in the area. I also recommend it to Muslim food lovers who can’t get enough of Korean food and want to add another Korean restaurant to their list.
