Red Oriental Korean Chinese Restaurant, Singapore
There are so many Korean restaurants in Singapore, but this one in particular (76 Amoy Street, 6327-9036) caught my eye, as it boasted of "Korean Chinese" food. The menu items looked largely like Chinese food adapted to the Korean palate, so I figured that it might be an interesting adaptation like that Korean Japanese food at Bakang Tuna. I was wrong.
I asked for a recommendation and I got this rather sad looking bowl of noodles (spaghetti, apparently) and squid sitting in a typical Korean red broth. Fortunately it tasted better than it looked, but it wasn't anything to draw me back.
I am not sure if I understood the background here either. These guys were from mainland China, suggesting that it was actually Korean food adapted for the Chinese rather than the other way around. Then again, the guy talked about making it sweeter for the Singaporean palate, so I'm not quite sure what was going on.
