Shop/Food Review

Mr Good Says:

This is The Boneless Kitchen, not to be mistaken as "the boneless chicken"! The first time I visited, I booked a Grab ride here and my driver asked me if the chicken rice here is really that good? Took me quite a while before I realized that he misread the restaurant name! Actually, this place is so named because as a Vegetarian Korean eatery. Since it does not serve any meat, it is a boneless kitchen!

 

Prior to my first visit, I had walked past this eatery many times. The fact that it is a Korean Vegetarian restaurant intrigued me. We often see Chinese Vegetarian, but Korean Vegetarian? I suspect this could possibly be the only one in Singapore! But, curiosity alone wasn't sufficient to lure me in. After-all, where's the fun in Korean cuisine if there's no BBQ meat and allium vegetables (like garlic and onions) in my kimchi?

But after seeing the persistent crowds and many good reviews online, I finally succumbed.

Floor Seating in The Boneless Kitchen

I took an instant liking to this restaurant after entering it because they have a section with floor seats that allow us to sit on the floor and eat from low tables like the ahjummas in Korean dramas. I also like that the no-frills restaurant does not impose any service charge or GST. Consequently, you have to queue up to order and pay at the counter but food will be served to your table. There is free plain water but no free flow side dishes.

Looking at the menu, I found the food to be more reasonably priced compared to the drinks. After trying the drinks, I advise you to stick to plain water.

Jajangmyeon

Food was generally good though! I like their Jajangmyeon. I am not sure how authentic it tastes compared to the non-vegetarian ones since this is my first time trying Jajangmyeon but I like it! This huge bowl of noodles is served with cucumbers, mushrooms, dakon and cabbages and doused in a savoury and slightly spicy sauce. It is flavorful but not overwhelming. Yum!

Odeng Bokkeum

Another dish that I love is their addictive Odeng Bokkeum (stir-fry mock fish cake) which tastes like homemade tofu in sweet and spicy sauce.

But as a pure vegetarian place, allium vegetables (like garlic, onion and leek) are strictly not used. In my opinion, without these important ingredients, the taste of their kimchi and pancake dishes are somewhat compromised so I wouldn't recommend all the dishes here.
