Arirang Korean and Japanese Restaurant – Batam

Hello! The gf brought me to Batam for a short, relaxing birthday getaway last week where we chilled away at the poolside (another post later) in the afternoon followed by a super fulfilling dinner at this Korean restaurant within the Harris Resort’s compound.

As Arirang restaurant serves a mixture of Korean & Japanese food, we can have a greedy mixture of both! *thumbs up*

 Anchovy, tofu, hotdog, cucumber, egg crepe, broccoli & kimchi – all so nice!

I love Korean banchan! Just this side dishes would be enough for my entire meal! 😉

Agedashi tofu – another of our must-haves whenever we have jap food!

Awesome Pork Bulgogi… I wrapped so many lettuces with this & the gf later that night said I smelled of garlic. O_o

The entire meal cost about S$50+ if I’m not wrong. Pretty affordable for such a spread & portion.
