Staples like beef, seafood, cabbage, and radishes are boldly seasoned with fiery dried chilies, and nutty, aromatic oil crushed from roasted sesame seeds.

Another option for late supper!

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.

Cheap free flow of meat

First of all, it is my first time visiting 2D1N. 

They have limited choices but the meat range is fine. The meat are rather good, but for side dish I only had kimchi. I was hoping for more authetic side dishes. They small salad bar and rice too. 

As for drink, I only had free flow of lime juice. 

The food is good. You can cook green chilli, garlic and onion and wrap it in the lettuce. AWESOME!

After eating, you will smell like a BBQ pork. The smell is really strong.
The waitress there keep dropping and breaking plates too but they helped us changed the aluminum quite often.

Lots of delicious BBQ meat but too stuffy

A lot of juicy, delicious meat available free-flow. There were two sauces available: I liked the orangey sauce better than the red sauce. It isn't spicy at all but there's this fragrant taste to it that fit well with the meat. I liked chicken meat best (spammage of chicken meat) as compared to beef (which was tough) and pork (which was oily >_

very authentic korean dishes

It's located at the far end of Tanjong Pagar Road near Duxton Hill. It seems always a long queue. The deco wasn't the cool or anything but the dishes are very authentic!

I think their Korean Style Char Siew (Bossam) is amazing! Very tender and it comes with a little sweet but very fresh Kimchi to go with.

Quite a few service staffs too. It is better with a big group to try different dishes to share. I loved their various selections of soups as well.

Authentic Korean Food, But Terrible Ventilation

Full 2D1N Soju Bang review here: http://ivanteh-runningman.blogspot.sg/2014/02/2d1n-soju-bang.html


Among the oldest Korean barbecue restaurants in Singapore, 2D1N Soju Bang is still going strong, offering authentic Korean food at really affordable prices. Notorious for their terrible ambience, 2D1N Soju Bang still manages to pull in the younger crowds, with queues of over an hour during peak periods.

2D1N Soju Bang is famously poorly ventilated. The buffet area upstairs is worst, with smells sticking to your clothes. 2D1N Soju Bang knows that not much can be done, because of its shophouse location, and thus offers Fabreeze at the door. The ala-carte area downstairs is much nicer, and has some wall decorations. 2D1N Soju Bang is showing signs of aging, furniture is wearing down, and the place doesn't look sparkly clean.

Service at 2D1N Soju Bang is decent. There isn't much service at the buffet upstairs, as most of it is self-service, but tables are cleared quickly. The ala-carte area downstairs has some service, but it's rather average and functional, not memorable.

The cheap prices of food at 2D1N Soju Bang is the main draw, with ala-carte costing less than SGD $18 per person, and the buffet costing about SGD $20 ++ per person. Plus, the food is of above average quality; in particular, the meats are well marinated, and the vegetables are fresh. The selection of banchan side dishes is pretty varied. Good, tasty food, but the terrible ambience will make me think twice about visiting again.
