Korean “pocha”-style eateries are having a moment here in Singapore, with plenty of such joints sprouting up across the island: like Hansing Pocha that even opens till 6am! And for those who live near or frequent the Holland Village area, 88 Pocha is a new street-style joint to hit up for some authentic Korean fare and booze!
For those who aren’t familiar with the term “pocha” or “pojangmacha”, it refers to a type of casual tented street stalls commonly found in Korea, usually characterised by their bright red covering and plastic tables and chairs. Such eateries usually serve Korean street-style snacks, as well as alcoholic drinks.
The vibe at 88 Pocha is super laid-back, flaunting a striking red and green exterior with iconic red and blue plastic tables and chairs as well as disco lighting illuminating the space to really replicate that authentic Korean “pocha” vibe right here in Singapore.
88 Pocha has a pretty unique tiered menu system for their food, comprising 5 alphabetical tiers, each with a different price point, which makes ordering and keeping track of prices much simpler. Tiered prices are as follows: A ($8.88), B ($11.88), C ($15.88), D ($18.88) and E ($28.88).
Highlights from the menu include the likes of Tteokbokki ($11.88), Sausage Gimbap ($11.88), Oden Soup ($18.88), Corn Cheese Spicy Ramyeon ($11.88), Tuna Cheese King Egg Roll ($15.88), LA Galbi Beef Ribs (from $18.88), Army Stew ($28.88) and more.
For dessert, 88 Pocha also has bingsu ($12.88) in flavours like Red Bean and Sweet Tomato. Korean food pairs best with booze, and 88 Pocha has plenty of that. Pick from various Suntory Highball cocktails (from $8.88) in flavours like Earl Grey, Blue Lemonade, Strawberry and Classic. You can also go for more classic alcohol options like various flavoured soju, beer, makgeolli, black raspberry wine and more.
