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.
