Korean cuisine - Amidst its rugged terrain, Korea harbors one of Asia's best-kept culinary secrets: a hearty cuisine that promotes health and wholesomeness. Staples like beef, seafood, cabbage, and radishes are boldly seasoned with fiery dried chilies, and nutty, aromatic oil crushed from roasted sesame seeds.
Love it there for the buffet spread of meat available for the BBQ. The side dishes taste amazing too. The location is easy to find however the store is kind of stuffy. But otherwise, good food and with great company, it's a satisfying night at 2D1N!!
I called the number provided on this listing last Saturday 9 January 2016 1455 to make a reservation for nine people. The reservation is for today 16 January 7.30pm.
The lady took down my phone number and asked if I wanted the buffet or ala carte. I replied buffet.
Today, our family came to the restaurant but they do not have our reservation. -.-
The staff from 2D1N told me I must have called Ssikkek instead. My aunt checked with Ssikkek too. They also do not have my reservation.
tldr: made booking but wasn't reserved. Pushed the blame to Ssikkek downstairs.
Most would probably have heard about 2D1N because of the BBQ buffet offered at Ssikekk. Both 2D1N and Ssikekk are opened by the same owner, with 2D1N located at ground floor and Ssikekk at level 2.
Being one who don’t really go for buffets (anymore), I’ve been going to 2D1N for their a-la carte menu. Old le. Can’t stuff myself as much like before. Ha! And I have been to 2D1N at least 5 times, no less.
The restaurant’s decor was simple with random Korean posters pasted on the green painted walls. Private rooms are available for big groups, which one could easily get the staff’s attention by pressing the bell in the room too.
Besides their late operating hours, I like 2D1N for their side dishes. So generous! A whole slab of tofu! My friend and I would ponder how would Korean restaurants make money if people order just bowls of white rice for the side dishes. (^^lll)
And from the menu, we ordered:-
1) Gyeranjjim, $15 – Steamed egg. This was pretty good. And I was surprised the parts in contact with the hot bowl did not burn.
2) Sundubu jjigae, $20 (small) – Spicy soft tofu stew. This has (almost) become a staple for all my Korean meals. And the one dished out at 2D1N was not too bad. We were given so much tofu that after 4 big scoops, we were low on the soup with lots of ingredients left. Ha. But hey, I guess that’s why it’s called stew and not soup. =)
3) Yangponi bibimbap, $25 – Big bowl bibimbap. This was okie, although not the best I had. It was lacking the nice crunch against the moist rice although there were sliced carrot and cucumber.
Due to the (silly) 3000 characters limit, continue to read my review on other dishes here: PART2
6) Samgyeopsal, $18 (200g) – Grill pork belly.
So while the dishes offered at 2D1N do not wow, I dine here often because of their late operating hours. They are definitely one of my to-go places for supper. However, it may be a little tricky to dine in pairs as the portion is pretty big. Which means one may have to settle for fewer variety (since the portion is big) or order many and pack the unfinished food home.
