    Compare and contrast Singaporean and Jeju cuisineSingapore cuisine vs Jeju cuisine

    Beloved cultural dishes from any nation come with a deep history, a rich cultural heritage and love by its people. Here are some popular Jeju dishes compared to some Singaporean favorites.

    Laksa vs Meat Noodles (고기국수)

    Both Laksa and Jeju’s Meat Noodles are noodles served in a hot broth, but the similarities end there. While Laksa is traditionally served with a broth made from coconut milk or sour asam, meat noodles are served in a thick and hearty pork broth. Laksa typically comes with chicken, prawn or fish, but the traditional jeju meat noodle dish is made from pork, served with thick slices of pork in a pork broth. Laksa is oftentimes made spicy, but the spiciness of meat noodles will vary by restaurant. Some restaurants put spices in the broth as it stews, and others add a red hot sauce to the dish, which you can request to withhold, if you are not a fan of spicy foods.

    Bak Kut Teh vs Haejangguk (해장국)

    Bak kut teh and haejangguk may taste vastly different, but the concept is the same: a thick and hearty meat stew seasoned with a variety of other spices and ingredients. Korean haejangguk is sometimes called “hangover stew”, as it is traditionally consumed after a long night of drinking, or eaten for breakfast while you are getting over a hangover. There are various types of haejangguk, but one of the most common types is a thick and hearty beef broth with cabbage, vegetables, meat and usually sliced congealed ox blood, or pork blood sausage.

    Char Kway Teow vs Bibim cold Noodles (비빔국수)

    While char kway teow, an immensely popular dish in Singapore, is stir-fried and mixed with various types of seafood or meat and vegetables, you can experience a different type of mixed noodle dish in Jeju. Bibim cold noodles is a cold dish made with noodles mixed in a sweet and spicy red bean paste sauce. It is a very popular dish in Korea and Jeju, especially in the hot summer months.
