Have been eating this for a longgg time, probably for the past 8-10 years. I call this the “korean caifan” - you get rice, 4 dishes, and seaweed soup. My fav dishes are the beef, braised potato slices, taukwa, broccoli, kimchi and omelette. I rotate between these options, depending on what’s available. I also like that they use good quality rice that is slightly sticky! Overall it’s yummy, very homely, with generous portions. I was really full after the meal so rmb to bring a big eater to give some of your food to 😂

Tried some of the pork and I think the beef is much better, but my friend says that the pork is decent and “better than food court korean”. They also have bbq outlets so maybe I’ll try that in future, but the original store (this one) just has a charm that has me coming back again and again :)

This popiah, which is thicker than some I've had before, is on the moister side. Aunty puts quite a bit of sweet dark sauce.

Have been a patron since about 10 years ago and am now sort of friends with the stall co-owner (the aunty) who is friendly if you get to know her. Say hi to her!! :)

Have tried the rojak before some time ago. Not bad either! Try both the popiah and rojak here.

Always quite crowded around here and rather difficult to find seats. But prices are very affordable for an air conditioned space and food is rather recent. Here I have Steamed kaya butter bun ($2.40), also ordered some kopi / teh / barley which were around $1.40-$1.80.

It is unlikely to stay and chat for a long time once you finish your food though, due to the high turnover of tables. Service is so-so as the staff are fast-paced and place is quite busy but staff is still helpful. Overall nice space to chill for a bit after a walk at Bukit Timah Nature Reserve.

Authentic and delicious stews, with great banchans. Very, very small portion of meat though.

[ Food Review — This time, zichar dishes! (You can find my older review of their dim sum items on my insta!) ] Think we are completely sold on the idea of having dim sum at night! And what’s better is even if we wanted s o m e versus an entire dinner’s worth of dim sum, we can do that at Mongkok Dim Sum too!

So that’s precisely what we did tonight!

To start, we ordered the Spinach Dumplings (our fav item from our last visit), Siew Mai (gotta love decently priced, good-sized siew mai…with shrimp!), and Fried Mantou with Chilli Crab Dip. (Dim sum make for great starters because they’re bound to arrive before your main dishes anyway, and they help whet your appetite too!)

The mantou was pretty good — sweet and light + crisp without being oily! While the chilli crab dip tasted very much like a premix (it’s a lil starchy and had a 1-D sweetness), there was a lot more crab slivers in there than we’d expected! So much so that if we didn’t specifically spoon them up onto our buns, we’d have had a bunch leftover. Pretty nice surprise!

For a place that does so much dim sum, we were surprised at the quality of their zichar! Sure, it isn’t going to be comparable to top-tier zichar spots, but given the amount of ingredients and size of each dish, I’m down for eating here in sweet air-conditioned comfort with dim sum sides than at other mid-range zichar spots.

Our hotplate tofu actually looks like hotplate tofu! (We had a terrible hotplate tofu in the area prior, so this was a huge relief.) The sauce was fine — not amazing, not terrible — but what I really enjoyed was how many tofu we got + how even yet thin the egg layer was! Add on the shrooms, shrimp and chicken, and this is a solid well-rounded dish perf for pairing with rice!

The spinach with trio of eggs was great too! The broth was flavourful with an obvious enough profile of eggs (you’d think this is the baseline, but nope, I’ve been unfortunate enough to have eaten many that taste just like…water). The spinach was fresh and well-cooked, just some tail ends of the stalks that weren’t plucked/snipped, which wasn’t too big a prob.

Even the pork was yummy — I’m just not the biggest fan of the dish to rave about it, but it wasn’t too sweet, nor was it fatty! Kudos!

Top 1 will always be my definition of comfort food. Will always recommend their you mian cause I find that it has the best bite among all their noodle options!

Good comfort food on a rainy day☺️ The broth had a good balance of flavour, though it was on the oilier end. The chicken was fairly tender, not too dry. Portion might be a bit small for big eaters though.

The dish itself was nothing to shout about, but overall, price was reasonable for the quality. Do also note that the chicken is not stuffed with glutinous rice, as expected of most Samgyetang elsewhere.

I must say that I really loved their homemade kimchi though! It had a great balance between sourness, spiciness, sweetness and saltiness. Would consider coming back again to try their other dishes!

Ribeye steak with rice.
Doneness : medium
Perfectly cooked steak! Rice and coleslaw delicious as always. Never disappoints.
$18.90

if you’re craving for Korean food any point in time, you can help yourself by dining in at Kim’s family restaurant, greeted by courteous crew! Highlight definitely goes to their banchan (sides) as well as their mini yakult~

Go with the usual, order one or two of their stews to share & you’ll definitely have your stomach filled to the brim — with their unlimited toppings of banchan! ☺️👍🏻

Worth a visit!

📍 Bukit Timah Market and Food Centre
Substantial amount of fish given for the price, and friendly stall uncle!

I can claim this is the first bowl from their Ob Woon Sen concept, because I was the first to order this on their opening day. Unfortunately it's not on the level of Shrimp Prawn Seafood. Besides the prawn, there really were only tang hoon and spring onion. There was no/little lard or garlic to raise this dish. Prawns also meh.
