Hidden Gem for your Korean Fix

http://poohlovesfood.com/2015/01/19/kim-dae-mun-korean-food/ for full review with pics.

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.

Hidden gem in town!

If you are in town area and craving for delicious and affordable Korean food, you probably won't regret dropping by Kim Dae Mun located at Level 2 of Concorde Hotel. Started off as one of the food court stalls at Basement 1, it has since upgraded to occupy a shop on its own.
 
 For each main, one may choose rice or brown rice with red beans, accompanied with a selection of 2 banchans (anchovies, kimchi and cucumber slices).
 
 For the healthy peeps, you will definitely be glad to hear that their hotplate mains are cooked with hot water, and not oil!

Moved to L3 but quality remains the same

Happy to see that our preferred #koreanfood stall is now a full-fledged restaurant. #kimdaemun is now at L2 of Concorde Hotel, serving up familiar favourites like the dumpling soup with chicken ($6). We like ours spicy with the side of pickled cucumber.

authentic Korean food you shouldn't miss

I've been supporting this stall for more than 7 years since my school day. I was recommended by my Korean friend to here and got hooked by this stall after my first try. The bibimbap / slice fish set / kimchi soup you must not miss! :)

Great, affordable and authentic Korean dishes.

Good to see that Kim Dae Mun is still in operation. Been going to this stall since 94 when it was still located at the Orchard Point basement food court. After all these years, nothing's changed. Good quality food and VERY reasonable prices. Have tried almost everything on the menu, but my favourite will be the Spicy Chicken hotplate set. Juicy mildly spicy, succulent chicken pieces on a bed of lettuce set on a sizzling hotplate... its just Yum!! Queues can get a bit mental during dinner, but patience is a virtue!!! And it's well worth the wait!!
