Running Man – Do not walk and eat! [CLOSED]

Running Man Promo
If you recently tried to locate Gangnam Restaurant Korean BBQ at Temple Street, you will realise it has been renamed as Running Man. The new restaurant facelift sees the introduction of more exciting food in its menu. Operated and patronised by Koreans, you can already judge and trust the authenticity of the food served at Running Man.



Being a meat lover, we were able to rejoice in a meat frenzy. We started off with Sam Gyup Sal and Kkot Sal, which is pork belly and beef respectively, barbecued by the lady boss herself. The fresh meat slices were thick and huge, they needed to be cut into small and thin slices to share. Taste and texture wise, they were fragrant, flavourful and easy to chew.

The dish also came with spices like garlic in special sauce and onion that were kept warm atop the barbecue grill plate. Additional side dishes include glass noodles, chap chye, mashed potato, kim chi, seaweed and dried anchovies. That’s not all! Encircling the barbecue grill plate is a shallow groove where beaten eggs were poured into to slow cook into a kind of Korean egg souffle. In our opinion, the entire dish was value for money. Not only were there lots of interesting add-ons to a single dish, every one of them was tasty, soft, moist, definitely spicy if you add chilli, and so good.

Then, we had the Zucchini Pancake ($12+). Dipped in soy sauce with sesame seeds to savour, the pancake remained light on the palate and crisp at the edge.

The last time we were here we thoroughly enjoyed the Marinated Chicken and Pork with Chili Paste and Rice Cake For 2 ($35+). The dish complete with fresh colourful vegetables impressed us over and again. Eat it wrapped in a lettuce leaf with kim chi and cut chilli to enjoy the full flavours, crunchy juicy and meaty textures, and strong spicy notes. When little of the dish was left, we were offered rice cake or rice to be tossed into the remaining portions of the dish, so again this dish was value for money.

For our final and most gratifying dish, we had the Bu Dae Jji Gae ($35+), which is a stew with noodles. It was placed on the barbecue grill plate as our table was too full. Innovative, right? The rich stew base is made of big dried anchovies from korea, seaweed and various vegetables with no beef, so people who do not take beef can try this. Additional ingredients in the stew include ramen, rice cake, kim chi and cucumber, spam and sausages.

Look no further if you have been trying to find a Korean restaurant that serves authentic Korean food, has a cool atmosphere and great service. The chefs who double up as your friendly service crew reside from Korea but speak fluent English. They are always ready to help and converse with you, so you will feel really welcomed and at home. Just remember to call and reserve your seating to avoid disappointment, since the restaurant houses a maximum capacity of 40 customers only.

      Hi Jay, we think the food is special. It is quite common to name a Korean restaurant after a certain reality show for example, 2 Days 1 Night, but they are actually nothing related to 2 Days 1 Night show, so is Running Man restaurant 🙂
