This restaurant, I would rather call it an eatery in Singapore’s context (due to its family-run style), is located all over Seoul, & sells all sorts of home-cooked style Korean food you can think of. Take a look at its extensive menu:
There’s various types of Kimbab (it’s like Japanese sushi but a bit drier), from original kimbab (원초김밥), vegetable kimbab (야채김밥), salad kimbab (셀러드김밥) to tuna kimbab (참치김밥), egg kimbab (계란말이김밥) etc (price range from KRW 1,500 – 3,000, about S$1.70 – 3.50). These are popular food-to-go, especially if you need to have a quick bite. Then there’s also various types of ramen, udong, rice and soup dishes for you to eat in the eatery. The most expensive item on the menu is a mere KRW 6,000 (about S$7) for 1 person. So isn’t it a very wallet-friendly place? ^^ In a way it’s also like a mini food court in Singapore’s context since it sells such a variety of Korean food.
We found 1 outlet just in front of exit 4 of Myeongdong subway station line no. 4, which is about 8 mins’ walk from where we stayed (Han Suites), and had 1 breakfast and 1 dinner there.
Cheese Ramen may sound like a weird combination, but it’s actually very yummy! I love it & I think I will try making it myself at home – just put a slice of Kraft cheese into the instant Korean ramen hee.
OK, it’s not the best Bibimbap u can find in Seoul, but this can’t go very wrong in any Korean restaurant, & I really like it served in stone pots hehe. I guess the “problem” lies in their sauce (고추장), not spicy enough, but it’s no big deal. 괜찮아 ㅋㅋ
So, next time you visit Seoul, and you happen to feel poor or don’t want to fuss too much on food, pop by Kimbab Paradise (김밥천국) for a quick meal to satisfy your hunger! 🙂
