Kkumdang (꿈당) is a fusion restaurant in Sillim that not only serves delicious food but also has become popular among Koreans because of the nice atmosphere.
Once again, this restaurant was introduced to me through a friend. And, it turned out to be another great place to write about.
The restaurant is located on the second floor of a building. So, it is possible to get a window seat with a nice view to add to the experience. And although the place is not huge, they accommodate every guest very nicely. My friend and I did not have any trouble arriving and getting seated right away. The staff is incredibly kind also, so overall a nice establishment.
The restaurant itself has dim lights, which gives the feeling of comfort and a relaxing time. So with that, we found many Koreans chilling there after work.
As an additional cute twist, the workers at Kkumdang give out a pancake to every group that arrives. They write a cute message on it, so it will light up your day. On my turn, although I was with a Korean friend, the staff made sure to give me a message in English, and I thought it was funny and cute at the same time.
The fusion menu did not disappoint. My friend and I shared a ragu pasta and a takoyaki. Both were amazingly cooked and I would definitely recommend the pasta! No wonder it is on their recommended menu.
As for the prices, I found them to be average. Depending on the plate you will think you can find cheaper options around, but let me tell you that their food is definitely well made and cooked with good ingredients. Also, my friend and I ordered those two dishes, and it was enough for both of us, so you will not be hungry if ordering one plate for each person.
You can find their menu with prices on their Kakao Map page.
The takoyaki, since it was a side dish, was only 8,900 Korean won, while the pasta was 17,900 Korean won.
Kkumdang was once again a great find and it became my go-to place in Sillim. Make sure to stop there if you need to relax a bit and eat some great food. Also, I would suggest going for their recommended menu, you will not regret it.
