First ever Korean tapas bar in Singapore, SYNC is one that offers modern Korean food with a twist. With their first outlet at Westgate, this outlet at Serangoon Gardens gives off a different more laid-back and casual vibe, and has a different menu altogether.
On the tapas menu, we especially liked the Cracking, which is basically umami cod chips, fried to golden perfection and pairs perfectly with beer. The Sogogi Jowl, a char-grilled beef jowl in hoba garlic confit will definitely leave beef-lovers craving for more, promising tender slices of beef.
Perfect for sharing, the Dak Gar-Bi is a spicy chicken paella with onions, mushroom, cabbage, sasuage and kimchi. Served in a huge pan, we enjoyed the slight spiciness of this dish, as well as the very generous portion. For those who are not a fan of spicy stuff, the Ssam is worth a try, constituting of tender pork ribs, served with lettuce wrap and steamed buns.
Apart from they well known lava cakes, a lovely addition to their dessert menu is the Hotteok - a pan-fried chewy sweet korean pancake with banana foster, topped off with a scoop of vanilla ice cream. We found it to be absolutely divine, with all the flavours complimenting each component without being overly sweet.
Perfect for chilling with friends or to unwind a long day, we think SYNC Korean Tapas Bar definitely makes a good addition to our ever growing food scene in Singapore. Prices are kept relatively reasonable and there is no service charge. They open till late and also have on-going promotions from time to time.
