How well do you know your Korean dining etiquette? Do you use your left or right hand to pour your makgeolli refills*? And what in heaven’s name is makgeolli anyway? Joo Bar, in bustling Bugis, brew their own makgeolli, which is a sweet-sour milky white 8% rice alcohol. There are a range of flavours – yuzu (Yucha) being a top runner – or sip at them all with the sampler set. Food goes way beyond bar bites and heavily features pork and kimchi, from Joo Bossam – pork belly with cabbage wrap and kimchi – to Mangalitsa Pork Belly Kimchi Stew. Joo Bar’s second floor is peppered with little Korean faux-pas and must-dos so if you want the answer to the refill conundrum, that’s where you need to head. Kanpai!
