I choice Korean cuisine when a buddy of mine gave the option of Mc Donalds or Korean cuisine for dinner. It took an hour plus to get there from my workplace due to traffic jam & heavy rain. Drenched, I reached the restaurant in a very cold and hungry state. However, I’m in for a surprise when I got there.
Decorations at the entrance of the restaurant.
Buddy told me that there’s a Korean restaurant behind the Shell petrol station that’s located at Lorong Kilat and I was shocked because I never knew there was one near Upper Bukit Timah. Kim’s Family Restaurant is not easy to spot, in fact, it’s well hidden and requires some uphill walk. After entering a small lane, there’s some uphill walking before passing a coffee shop and few other shops to reach the restaurant. I almost passed the restaurant without realizing but luckily my friends stopped me. On entering, I felt that the restaurant was crowded and a little cramped.
However, the friendly waiters, side dishes and main courses made the trip worthwhile.
Around 10 free of charge (FOC) and refillable side dishes!
There’s even a fish as one of the side dishes (top left) and it’s refillable!
Spicy seafood toufu
We get to cook the beef before gobbling it down with cabbage.
After having our fill, we had free slices of water melons provided by the restaurant. We spent a total of $40 and walked away bloated. It’s a reasonable price when shared by 3 and we had fun cooking, chatting and tasting Korean cuisine in a cozy environment. Special thanks to Soc for asking me out to cheer me up. You rox babe! :p
