Kim’s Family Restaurant

A couple of weeks ago, I was at Upper Bukit Timah. Remembering the delicious U.D.D.E.R.S. ice cream that Keropokman and Momo bought for us from the Lorong Kilat branch, I went there to satisfy the ice cream craving. But first, dinner.

Especially popular among Korean kids is this non-soupy, dry version. It’s a cold noodle dish — instant ramyun boiled, drained, cooled, and then dressed in sweet, vinegary gochujang (hot chilli paste).

Not so yummy. In short, that’s the overall impression I have of Seoul Yummy after a late lunch there on a weekday. By the way, is it just me or are you also confused by the odd layout of Square 2?

Cold Korean spaghetti (S$7.80)

An Italian-inspired version of bibim myeon (mixed cold noodles), this dish substitutes thin, silky somen noodles with chewy spaghetti, an update that doesn’t quite work.
