Wang Dae Bak Holland Village Korean BBQ Restaurant

Wang Dae Bak Holland Village or Wang Dae Bak Grill, it is located on the top floor of the whimsical Holland Piazza building. Come to think of it, this building reminds me of the Gaudi buildings in Barcelona. WDB has two other outlets in Singapore – Amoy Street and 22 Cross Street.

Korean Restaurant in Holland Piazza

Holland Piazza is a building which we have passed by often but seldom entered. One reason for going there was the Little Farms market. But now that it has moved across the road to the new Little Farms Holland V outlet, there is one less reason to go to this building. But this is offset by the discovery of Wang Dae Bak Holland Village which we would like to make a repeat visit.

This Korean restaurant has an interesting interior that takes advantage of the quirky design and layout of this building. Big windows, high ceilings, curved walls and generous spaces combine to make this an interesting Korean restaurant in Holland Village. The different seating areas appear to have different personalities. From a modern loft-like atmosphere….

….to very traditional Korean restaurant vibes.

Wang Dae Bak Holland Village Menu

As we were going up the escalator we saw these posters : 15% discount for Korean BBQ during lunch on weekdays and happy hour promos of free beer or dumplings at 5.30pm to 7pm on certain days.

The full restaurant menu is available online so I will only show you the Wang Dae Bak Holland Village weekday set lunch menu. The items here look like good value for money and we decided to order the Pork BBQ and small pancake set ($19++) and the Ginseng Chicken Soup and small pancake set ($20++),

Our Korean Food Lunch at Holland Village

A set of six side dishes or banchan arrived soon after we placed our orders. This was one of the better banchan selections we have tried in Singapore. As usual, they were replenishable without charge.

The ginseng chicken soup was a substantial dish. Half a chicken was cooked in ginseng soup which contains cooked rice. It was a watery version of porridge or pao-fan. The soup had a robust ginseng flavour and was lightly salted. Additional salt was provided on the side for those who prefer a heavier taste. For us, the default seasoning was good enough.


Also substantial was the pork bbq and pancake dish. The quantity of BBQ sliced pork was too much for us. We left behind the more fatty bits. The taste of this was not as impressive as the soup.

One thing that both dishes had in common were two small pancakes – one kim chee and the other seafood pancake. Both were nice but we preferred the seafood pancake which contained adequate quantities of prawns and squid and the seafood taste was good.

Our visit to Wang Dae Bak Holland Village Korean BBQ restaurant gave us a good intro to their offerings. We are likely to return to try their other dishes. Ginseng chicken soup and a full sized seafood pancake are likely repeat candidates on a future visit.
