The dishes

Jjigae Jjigae in Raffles Xchange is now officially MUIS halal-certified.

The restaurant itself isn’t particularly new but the concept seems to have changed since its inception. Some time in 2017, Jjigae Jjigae used to be a non-halal Korean restaurant known for its single diner portion hot pots.

Whilst the tables here still retain the induction cookers when we visited, no cooking is needed anymore.

Today, Jjigae Jjigae (which coincidentally is a brand under The Soup Spoon), serves food that have been fully prepared in their kitchen.

Create your own stew

Jjigae, which means stew in Korean, still remains the focus of the restaurant albeit done in a more personalised way.

The stew bases come in four flavours, each priced at S$3.90.

  • Korean Kimchi Stock
  • Miso Collagen Chicken Stock
  • Spicy Collagen Chicken Stock

However, prices will start to vary depending on the ingredients you choose to add, which include vegetables, noodles, protein and premium items.

A minimum of 4 ingredients must be added before you can check out your order at the self-service terminals.

Check out the menu below for a list of available ingredients:

For a limited time only, diners get a free upgrade (worth S$2.50) of kimchi and a drink.

Fixed menu items also available

If you’d rather leave decision-making out of your lunch plans, you can select several dishes that are already fixed in the menu.

Tip: If you’re planning to make a trip, you should probably make it very soon: the restaurant is running a set meal promotion going from S$9.90 inclusive of kimchi and drink.

Here’s the promotion poster we saw outside:

Dining area

The dining area provides ample seating space for the CBD lunch crowd, although we imagine it’d be stuffy if multiple hot pots are cooking at once.

And honestly, time-starved office workers might not have the luxury of time to cook hot pot during lunch.

Perhaps that’s why they pivot to the current concept now.
