Woo Sam Gyup

AP and I met up over lunch at VivoCity last week. Since we’ve pretty much tried out all the F&B outlets in VivoCity, we went to one of the newer openings — Bornga. This is Bornga’s 2nd outlet in Singapore, after their first Singapore opening in Star Vista. I’ve visited the one in Star Vista…
