A Korean restaurant that’s well frequented by regular and nearby visitors, you’d be surprised by the number of side dishes that are served. Any regular Korean restaurant will probably only serve up to 5 side dishes but not here. There are 15 side dishes in total – kimchi, bean sprout, mushroom, mashed sweet potato and the list goes on and on! When it comes to the meat, they’re nicely marinated and the staffs are experienced in cooking it to the perfect tenderness. Just sit back and relax.

If you ask any Johorean to recommend a Korean restaurant, no doubt, most of them would reply with ‘Jang Won’ because it’s one of the oldest Korean restaurants in town! Conveniently located nearby the checkpoint, you’ll notice Singaporeans dropping by as well. Thanks to the smoke extract system, there’s close to being no smoke at all – squeaky clean with no hint of oiliness. Enjoy yourself in the most comfortable setting possible with the best-barbequed meat. Perhaps, a bottle of soju too?

We’re going to let you in on a top-secret. Ready? We heard that they serve one of the best seafood pancakes, each pancake’s filled with generous fillings and fried to the spot-on crispiness. The crunch you’ll hear when you sink your teeth in makes the dining experience here all the more wonderful. Furthermore, a little burnt flavour manages to creep into the pancake as a nice finishing as well. Doesn’t it sound irresistible?

On top of that, rest assured that the quality of the meat used is guaranteed because they only serve the very best. The next time you have the chance, why not try out their clamp soup? Heard that it’s pretty good and the seafood’s really fresh too.
