Hidden korean gem right at Level 2 of Concorde Hotel. It was previously located in the basement food court of Concorde, but after the food court has closed for renovation, Kim Dae Mun has moved up to occupy a shop in Level 2. A very simple interior almost as plain as it can be without any decorations or designs; simply filled with portable lightweight table top and chairs. But it's definitely one of the best place to get your cheap authentic korean fix in town.
Menu mainly filled with localized korean delights ranging from spicy rice cake to bibimbab to kimchi soup to mandu soup and more all at affordable prices. Each main comes with a side dish of your choice.
Generous serving of Korean Rice Cake at only $5. Rice cake is a little chewy and best when eaten hot, otherwise it will turn a little hard. The sauce was pretty good, thick & gooey, sweet and spicy. & the sesame enhances the aroma of it.
We ordered both their Kimchi Soup ($7) and Seafood Soup ($7.50). I probably thought they might have used the same soup base for both the soup as that's what most places will do in order to save some cost. But i was wrong! Their soup base are totally different. The kimchi soup is thick and rich in kimchi flavor with hint of tingling sensation. While the seafood soup is much lighter and sweeter in flavor. Both soup are filled with abundance of fresh ingredients. For the kimchi soup, it's filled with pork and kimchi mainly, while for the seafood soup, it's filled with tofu, seafood and some leafy.
Overall, it has been quite a satisfying meal. The food and pricing has definitely make up for the not so appealing outlook.
