Nipong Naepong is Singapore’s first jjamppong (seafood noodles) speciality restaurant. It is a dish that has revolutionised traditional Chinese-Korean cuisine.
Nipong Naepong offers jjamppong in nine versions that are inspired by flavours from around the world.
While the textures and flavours vary across soupy, creamy and dry versions, each variation features Nipong Naepong’s own jjolmyeon (wheat noodles), which are made in South Korea exclusively for the brand. Sauces and soup stocks are also shipped in from South Korea.
The jjamppong options include Cha Ppong ($15.80++, above), which comes loaded with fried cabbage, mussels, squid, prawn and quail eggs; and Vongole Ppong ($16.80++), which is cooked with clams spiked with white wine and garlic.
The menu includes pizzas such as Ni Pizza-Sweet Potato ($16.80++), Ninae Pizza-Spinach ($18.80++) and Nae Pizza-Garlic ($16.80++).
