Before I popped over to Manna Story @ Plaza Singapura to try out their Korean cuisine, Kim Dae Mun was my first conquest of affordable Korean food. Despite being situated in a food court, it's a far cry from what is deemed as "Korean cuisine" in every other food court.

During my previous visit (hence the lack of photos), I gave the spicy cabbage soup a shot, and it was the best version I've tried so far. Just a warning for those who cannot handle spicy food, give the rice cakes and spicy dishes a miss. The Korean lady boss is really generous with her kimchi and spicy sauce! Oh, and do keep a lookout for the lady boss signal while waiting for your order to be prepared. She remembers faces. :)
Other food bloggers also recommended the potato pancakes and the fried dumplings, which I've seen many diners ordering during both my visits.
With Kim Dae Mun around, it isn't impossible to find affordable yet delectable Korean nosh anymore.
Ambience: 2.9/5 (expect it to be noisy during lunch hours)
