No GST too.

Mukshidonna is a popular chain restaurant from Seoul, Korea known for their budae jjigae (Korean army stew) with tteokbokki (Korean rice cakes). 


It opened its first and only branch in Singapore at Downtown East, Pasir Ris late last year, but here's the news: it just obtained its Halal certification.

Unlike typical Korean army stew, Mukshidonna offers five options to go with their sweet and spicy base — Cheese, Sausages, Bulgogi, Mussels, or Mushroom ($13.90). Fishcakes, rice cakes, and vegetables are included in the mix.

Korea's toppoki stew is in town and I'm happy to find out that it is the same restaurant that my friends and I used to frequent in Seoul. We had the Bulgogi & Budae toppoki stew ($13.9 per pax) with 4 add-ons ($3 each — cheese, ramyeon, dumpling, yakki dumpling) and it was so satisfying! The gravy thickened over time with the toppoki turning soft and chewy with a good amount of heat and a hint of sweetness. .

If you want to add any of the other four options, or other ingredients, such as ramyun noodles, dumplings, fried squid rings, and eggs, it'll cost $3 per serving:


The stew gets thicker as it boils on, and you can choose to use it (and any leftover ingredients) to fry some fried rice ($5). Add another $2 for cheese.

So here's a heads' up for Muslim foodies — you've now got a great new option for your Army Stew fix.

Where you can find it: Market Square @ Downtown East, 1 Pasir Ris Close, E! Avenue #02-324, Singapore 519599

When it's open: Mon - Sun, 11:30 am – 10:00pm
