New Korean Find at Suntec!

I visited Suntec City recently and came across this new Korean restaurant. They are located near Din Tai Fung Restaurant. I ordered my usual dishes to gauge their food quality. Here's my verdict: - Kimchi Soup: This was my favorite dish. Unlike watery ones you find at most restaurants, the soup was 'thick' and chockful of kimchi, straw mushrooms. Delicious! - Wagyu Beef Short Rib: beef was well marinated and served on a hot plate. Good! - Seafood Pancake: instead of the huge portions that you are usually served, it was cut into nice bite sized pieces and nicely presented on a long plate with fresh salad vegetables. - Seafood rice in claypot: This was a unique dish that you don't get anywhere else. Oysters, prawns and other seafood places atop rice in a Claypot bowl, you can stir in soya sauce and enjoy, much like 'bibibamp' without the Korean sauce. Not heavy and refreshing. Nice. I will be back again when I need to get my fix for Korean food!

Cheap and good Korean food

Kimchi is a brand new Korean restaurant offering authentic flavors along with regional favourites from Busan and Andong. It's guaranteed authentic because Executive Chef Choi Minchul and his all-Korean team of chefs are behind the delicious creations. 

Do not expect free side dishes at Kimchi because the cute boss Hayden doesn't want to hide the cost in the price of your meal. The portions are also healthier sized and more affordable than the usual Korean restaurants.   The Andong Jjimdak ($15) was a satisfying hot pot of braised boneless chicken thighs marinated in Korean light soy sauce. This dish is inspired by Chef Choi’s own family recipe. Be careful not to inhale any of the sauce! The fresh green chilli pepper called cheongyang gochu (청양고추) has a ghost chili kinda silent burn that will get to you if you're not careful. The dish also had a nice smoky sesame oil taste as well. Diners can also enjoy this unique dish in the form of a chicken dolsot bap or as a marinated option for Korean barbeque. Must order!

The Kimchi Soup ($9.80) was prepared as a jigae instead of a guk which is a thicker broth with a rich, deep flavour. Stir-fried with pork, the kimchi is left to simmer and enrich the accompanying broth. The spicy concoction is very addictive and reminded me of the one i had in Korea. 
For a lighter and healthier option, i highly recommend the Ginseng Chicken Juk ($12). Chef Choi prepares chicken stock the day before and selects premium Korean ginseng and Chinese herbs such as dang gui, kamcho (Korean licorice), and red dates to simmer with Korean rice. I love how there is a light sweetness from the dates. S promised to buy this for me every time i fall sick. Yay! Super comfort food i must say. 
  Kimchi also offers Korean barbeque where built-in electric grills allow diners to grill their food without smelling of smoke. Choose from a selection of premium meats which include the delicious Wagyu short ribs [$29 non-marinated; $29.50 marinated. I'm definitely coming back for this.

Craving Satisfying Meal

It was me & my mother's first visit to Kimchi Korean Restaurant. As we have been to several Korean restaurants, we were expecting refillable banchan. Unfortunately, the staff explained that the banchan were also ala-carte orders. Therefore, we ordered the Spicy Cabbage Kimchi, Spring Onion Kimchi & Radish Kimchi. For our main course, we chose the Spicy Seafood Stew & Beef Bulgogi. As for our side dishes, we ordered the Japchae. The seafood stew had a generous serving of seafood, which includes squid, clams, prawns & crab meat. The beef bulgogi was my favourite dish. It was simply delicious. However, the Japchae, in my opinion was nothing great. The meal left me a good impression & hope for a second visit.

Affordable Korean food, worth a try

The prices are very reasonable, fresh ingredients and tastes not bad. But not outstanding. Definitely have better Korean food in town. Have a try if you are nearby, but don't need to rush here if you are far from here!

kimchi korean restaurant?

- kimchi 1/5, kimchi was not fermented, you can still taste the rawness of the vegetable -.side dishes 1/5, limited variety, not impressive - pork cheek bbq 4.5/5, tender, fresh, juicy - marinated pork collar 4/5 - jap chae 4/5, too small a portion for $7.50 - ginseng chicken soup 2/5, No ginseng taste at all, just taste like normal 老母鸡汤 -Service 1/5: service was super slow. took them half an hour to sit us. However, when we enter we spotted 5-6 empty tables. And they continued to sit the people behind us at a super slow rate. After ordering we waited for too long for our food to arrive. And it was only until the end of our meal that they realise they have not serve us our drinks. Service staff were really unfriendly except for one guy. Overall, bad service, decent food. Not coming back agai
