Kimchi restaurant’s interior looks sleek and chic, making it look like a high-class korean restaurant, but it’s actually surprisingly affordable, especially if you’re going with a group of 3 or more. Manned by 100% Korean chefs, this place aims to prove its credibility as an authentic Korean restaurant. Even the wall is made up of rocks from Jeju Island!
Furthermore, side dishes such as kimchi are self-service and most importantly, free-of-charge, plus it’s free flow! It can’t get any better than that right? Wrong. Kimchi has now revamped its menu and it’s looking better than ever, with the dishes looking more unique and tasting even better.
I know, you’re probably thinking, “Is that pizza?” Nope, it’s just the Buffalo Mozzarella Samgyeopsal Bumbuk ($59), which we all have to agree, looks amazing. This pizza-loooking dish is most definitely cheesey, with mozarella cheese on top, and the yellow puffy ring is actually mashed sweet potato that mimics the pizza’s crust. A bite of the various ingredients inside this dish which includes succulent Kurobuta pork belly, along with the chorizo sausage, mushroom, tomato, green chilli, onion and garlic is like a party in my mouth. The ssamjang sauce makes it even more flavourful, which makes this dish one of my favourites here.
The best thing about this is that tortilla skin is served at the sides, as well as lettuce and tobasco sauce. You can scoop up the cheesey and meaty parts of the dish and wrap it in the tortilla skin or lettuce!If you are thinking of sharing with a group of 3-4 people, try the Kimchi So Kalbi Jjim ($50) which is a slow cooked beef short rib with braised kimchi soaked in kimchi broth. Combine with a wide array of vegetables inside along with Korean noodles, this dish is to-die-for.
Missing a nice hot bowl of kimchi soup? I recommend the Chamchi Sundubu Jjigae ($14.90), which contains tuna and soft tofu soup that comes with everyone’s favourite kimchi soup. Switching tyatypical kimchi soup up a bit, which actually tastes more appetising than the one we are used to. You can even have it as a meal because it is served with rice and vegetables in the soup as well!
Vegetarian Bibimbap?! Yup, they have it here. The Gondraw Ya Chae Bibim Bap ($15.90) is served in a hot stone pot with seasoned cirsium setidens rice, with various types of vegetables along with an egg. Although it’s a vegetarian dish, it doesn’t taste as bad as we’d thought, it actually tastes palatable.Seafood lovers will love this! This bowl of delectable clams and octopus that comes with Korean noodles is the Moon-Eo Rameon ($17.90). I love the beef broth, especially when it is mixed together with egg, seafood and vegetables which makes it taste flavourful.One of Koreans’ favourite delicacies would have to be the Haemul Gae Ran Jji ($13.90) which is basically delicious steamed egg with seafood. If you dig further into the fluffy steamed egg, you’ll find loads of goodies from squid to flying fish roe. The steaming vegetable stock tastes heavenly, definitely a must-try!
