So what do Bulgogi, Jeyuk Bokkum and Galbi mean?
What is Bulgogi?
Bulgogi or some like to call it, Korean BBQ sauce is a savory-sweet sauce. Bul means fire and gogi means meat which gives you fire-meat. In this case, our Bulgogi Beef rice bowl, Fu-yoh, is slices of meat that’s drenched in a savory-sweet sauce that’s torched to perfection.
What is Jeyuk Bokkum?
Jeyuk Bokkum‘s directly translate to Pork Stir-fry. In our local, Singaporean sense, it’s slices of pork that has been wok-hey-ed, stir fried in grandma’s iron pan. Traditionally, Jeyuk Bokkum refers to thinly sliced of pork shoulder marinated in a spicy gochujang sauce then stir-fried, this recipe is full of flavour and beyond satisfying. At Cha Re Re, we prepare our rice bowls on demand and fire it up when you order and we have muted the spiciness and tweaked it for our local palette. Get “The Stuff” today.
What is Galbi?
Galbi, also known as “galbi gui” or “Korean BBQ short ribs,” is a mouthwatering and popular dish that originates from Korea. It is a true culinary delight that combines tender and succulent beef short ribs with a delicious marinade, resulting in a flavour explosion that is sure to satisfy any meat lover’s cravings. The ribs are traditionally marinated in a mixture of soy sauce, garlic, ginger, sugar, and sesame oil, which infuses them with a perfect balance of savoury, sweet, and slightly smoky flavours. The marinated ribs are then grilled to perfection, either over an open flame or on a tabletop grill, enhancing their rich flavours and creating a tantalising caramelised crust. Cha Re Re follows a sous vide method followed by a searing of the meat which packs in the flavour and seals the deal. Try my personal favourite, O.M.G!

Every bowl of Cha Re Re comes with our house made Kimchi, seaweed, a sprinkle of sesame seeds and an on-sen egg, mixed well you’ll experience a blast of flavours with every bite.
