Three Meals A Day (‘TMAD’) is a Korean Restaurant located near Beauty World MRT Station. The restaurant has the same name as Korean reality cooking show that Little Devil and I like to watch. We went TMAD a few times and the restaurant always packed during lunch and dinner.

Halibut Hoimuchim ($35 for Medium). Halibut is the most common fish used for sashimi in Korea. We got hooked on it when we went to Korea and we wanted to order the sashimi here. Unfortunately, they run out of it already and left with this spicy seasoned salad. According to LD, the halibut is firm, evenly marinated, but super spicy. The chef actually used chilli padi to spice things up and really got POWER that her lips are burning but she could not stop eating it. So it does sum up how nice it is.
Jjajangmyeon ($12). The noodle is springy and bouncy, mixed with the sweet black bean sauce. I find the sweetness from the chopped onion bode well with the noodle. I know that there is pork mixed the sauce, however, I could never find them as it is covered up by the dark sauce.
B. Naengmyeon ($16). The spicy version of Korean cold noodles. It is spicy, sweet, tangy and the cold version of this noodle helps to beat the hot weather in Singapore. LD also like the non-spicy version as well.
Soondae ($10). Korean version of blood sausage, pig intestines stuffed with glass noodles and meat marinated in blood. Normally found in the pork soup, but the version here is served dry with salt and pepper dipping. It is chewy and tasty; however, it can be sticky and difficult to swallow. I find it better if it goes with something soupy.
Fried Chicken ($20 for medium). TMAD only used drummer for their KFC. The flesh is juicy and the batter is crispy but thicker than any other Korean Fried Chicken that tried. Looks more like pisang goreng batter. The seasoning is a bit on the lighter side, but it is still yummy.

Goon Mandu ($12). Korean version of Deep-Fried Dumpling. Crispy doughy skin, filled with delicious pork fillings. It is tasty enough you can eat it without the dipping sauce.
The décor of the restaurant is modern and almost café style. There are no long tables in the restaurant, but the square tables they used here give them the flexibility to combine and accommodate a larger group. Service is friendly but slow due to insufficient service staff.
Overall, TMAD sure served authentic Korean food. So far, the dishes what we have tried is above average. We will come back in the future to try the Halibut sashimi. Geonbae!! Cheers!!
Budget per Person: $11 - $25, $26 - $50
