Nestled on the first floor of Concorde Shopping Mall, Kim Dae Mun is one of the most affordable Korean eateries you can find along the upscale Orchard Road. Popular among families, students and cubicle rats, the inconspicuous restaurant is known for their legit Korean dishes such as kimchi soup and bibimbap that give off a home-cooked vibe.

Kim Dae Mun is helmed by Kim Hyeon Ju, who took over the reins from her father after graduating from Nanyang Technological University. In fact, the restaurant’s name is inspired by her family name, as well as two of the most popular shopping districts in Seoul: Dongdaemun and Namdaemun.

One of the restaurant’s most highly raved dishes is the Spicy Pork ($10.50), a sizzling hotplate dish loaded with marinated pork, spring onions, and cabbage. Don’t be too worried by the meat’s bright orange colour; the dish is said to be manageably spicy, and best paired with a bowl of white rice. Red Bean Rice ($1.50) is also available if you prefer a healthier alternative.

Another popular dish is the Kimchi Soup With Pork ($9.50). This gets you a hearty plate of meat, beancurd, cabbage, onions, and glass noodles soaked in a savoury-sour broth. Diners can also request to swap out the pork for either chicken or beef, if they’d like.

The Tender Sliced Beef ($12) is another dish that’s highly praised, featuring tender slices of beef topped with vegetables. Rice dishes are also available, such as Bibimbap ($10): pickled radish, spinach, seaweed, cucumber, chives, carrots, bean sprouts, and a sunny-side up sitting atop a bed of rice.

If you’re looking for something to share, order the Fried Dumplings ($11): juicy Korean mandu stuffed with lightly seasoned ingredients such as pork, vegetables, and glass noodles. As the dumplings are said to be light on the palate, you can also choose to dip them in your kimchi soup for extra flavour!
