Authentic Korean Food @ Muhan Dojeon Korean Restaurant

26 Oct

With the growing popularity of the K-wave, K-pop, running man, Korean Restaurants are rapidly gaining ground here. Muhan Dojeon is tucked at a corner in Amoy Street, operated by a Korean couple. Though simple and not much decoration, the cleanliness and the authenticity of the food make up for it.

Like many Korean Restaurants, one is served the complimentary side dishes here. They were very generous in the portion and varieties. The best of all, the side dishes were all refillable with the exception of the omelette. What a pity, I had really wanted more of that~~~~~ Nonetheless the side dishes were simply awesome and delicious. In particular, I had really favored the peanuts. Sweet and crunchy at the same time, definitely a must try!

We have a love and hate relationship with the spicy rice cake (Ddukbokki). That being said, this is definitely on our hit list. The spicy rice cake were indeed chewy and tasty. Simply put, the rice cake never disappoint us. However to improve the dish, I would prefer and suggest that the gravy be thicker.

While we were deciding what to order, other than the spicy rice cake. We finally settled on the Army Stew (Budae Jigae). The boss (ajusshi) whom was being friendly and nice, as in he came by and commented that the Army Stew is nice. Wow, thumbs up! this is definitely the kind of service that added a personal touch.

Meanwhile, the portion of the Army Stew was generous, with lots of ingredients (Luncheon meat, sausage, Enoki, Kimchi, mushroom etc) and good for sharing. Not to mention, the taste of the Army Stew is real good and satisfying. Drool~~~~ I would say this is at least as good as others, if not better! No complains…

Conclusion: Long story short, the food here is good with reasonable pricing and value for money. The authenticity of the food and the level of service is worth commendable as well.

Verdict: 8/10

    This is definitely my fav Korean place to fix my Korean food craving.
    Btw u should try their pa jeon (seafood pancake) which i think is the best i have eaten.
    Very generous usage of ingredients and the pancake is pan-fried till yellow crisp. =)

    Any other Korean place for recommendation?
    I have tried a number of places but so far none could match my expectations in terms of price and quality when compared to Muhan Dojeon.
    However I do feel it is a little underrated due to the simplicity of the shop outlook though =/

      Yeah I seconded that. Muhan has been a bit underrated. But hey, that helps to keep the price competitive in any case. Haaaa.

      I came across good words about Auntie Kim’s restaurant and Togi restaurant but I have not had a chance to try them yet. 😛
