We had been having so much street food, and decided to have a proper, leisure, sit-down dinner today 🙂
오우가 Ouga 五友歌 was highly recommended by our friend Ms. K, and it was quite packed when we arrived! Luckily, there was still a table available, and we did not have to wait.
While the staff might not speak much English, their menu was in Korean, English, Chinese and Japanese, so we managed to order without much difficulty.
We opted to share 2 sets, the 생갈비살식 (Saeng Galbisal) Grilled Beef Rib Meal 鮮排骨肉定食套餐 (₩15,000) and 삼곂살정식(Samgyeopsaljeong) Grilled Pork Loin Meal 五花肉定食套餐. Both sets came with 100g of the meat, as well as green tea bamboo rice, vegetables, side dishes, and sauce.
After visiting the gorgeous 해동용궁사 Haedong Yonggungsa Temple 海東龍宮寺, we decided to head to 해운대전통시장 Haeundae Traditional Market 海雲台傳統市場 for lunch. It was a 25-minute cab ride (₩9,800).
We reached before 12 noon, and the area was still quite empty. We checked out the market to see what fresh produce the locals were selling, as well as some shops selling cutesy items (socks!!!).
There were a lot of seafood eateries, and we had originally wanted to try the 곰장어 hagfish/blind eel 盲鰻, but the eateries seemed to be all empty, and we were not sure which one to choose.

It was time to try something new! OCBC is having a 1-for-1 promotion for Galmaegisal (marinated pork skirt meat), so that kinda made us decide to try out this place.
According to the menu, galmaegisal is supposed to be “well-loved for its perfect combination of tender juiciness”, and “this unique cut that forms only 250 grams of a full-grown pig is said to be only serves to the Royal Family of Korea in the past”. We were quite sold to the idea of eating it already!
[Here is the photostream of Bali 2014, for those who prefer pictures to tell a story. 🙂]
We woke up bright and early at 4am to get ready for our 7am flight! Very excited since it was our first trip to Bali, and also because we had absolutely nothing planned, except for whatever that was inside the 4D3N package that we signed up with Villa Semana Resort and Spa :p Why did we choose Bali? Well… Our expiring air miles could only take us to Malaysia or Indonesia, so we thought Bali was a good option for a short getaway 🙂
Our flight departed on time, and being in the first row of economy class meant that hubby had sufficient leg space. Alas, there were no windows in that row… Food was alright; omelette for hubby and ee-fu noodles for me. We also managed to catch about half a movie… Gotta continue during our return flight 😛
Moo Ka Ta
It seems that Moo Ka Ta is the current food darling of everyone!
We tried coming here without reservations previously and were told in a rather matter-of-fact manner that the place is usually almost full with reservations. So we got a name card and I very cleverly SMS for reservations close to 6pm today. And there were still seats available for 7.30pm! Good thing that I made reservations; there was only 1 table left for walk-in when I arrived at around 7pm 😮
BBQ cum Steamboat
KBB is directly underneath the second branch of Tim Ho Wan in Toa Payoh ERA Centre!
And no, we didn’t go for dim sum because it was the second day of its soft launch, so it wasn’t exactly opened to public yet 😛
