Kim Dae Mun: Best Affordable Korean Food in Singapore

Kim Dae Mun is probably the best Korean restaurant I have been to. As a fan of Korean foods, I am a very harsh critic of Korean dishes.

Kim Dae Mun is located at 100 Orchard Road, Level 1 Concorde Food Court, Singapore City, Singapore. You can take a bus to get there, if you are familiar with the routes. Just alight at Concorde. You can take buses: 7, 14, 16, 36, 65, 111, 124, 162, 162M, 174, 502, 518, 518A, 77, 167, 171, 190, 190A, 700, 700A, NR6, NR7, 124A, 502A, 502B, 518B, 174E, 16A, 16B, 14E, 175, 1N, 2N, 3N, 4N, 7N, 6N, 5N, 8N, 106, 128

But the easiest way is to take the MRT and alight at Dhoby Ghaut (purple/red line). Walk towards Plaza Singapura (you will not miss this one) and continue to walk towards Orchard Road until you find Concorde. Concorde is just a block away from Plaza Singapure anyway.

They are open from Monday to Sunday 10am to 10pm.

The Food

They have the best Spicy Beef soup out there for me. Here are some of their offerings:

  • Saba fish set with rice

  • Steamed and fried dumpling

  • Spicy beef, chicken, fish soup

  • Beef bulgogi

  • Kimchi rice

  • Tofu soup and more.

I havenever been disappointed with any of their dishes. Their side dishes (kimchi, cucumber or anchovies) are well-prepared and have large portions too.


Prices range from $4.50 to $8 for set meals. Really, really large portions for low price.

The Ambiance

Since it is in a cafeteria setting, the eating area is not exactly cleanest. The preparation counter is hidden so I can't pass judgment.

The Verdict

Worth the repeated visits. Really.
