Dinner at Wilkie Edge

We visited Daebak Korean Restaurant recently and ordered Dumpling Ramyeon ($9) and Jajangmyeon ($9 with $1 add on for an egg).

It is a self service restaurant. You order and pay at the counter. You collect your food when your number is called on flashed on the digital display. The waiting time was fairly short – less than 10 minutes.

The classic Ramyeon was served with egg roll and kimchi.

Besides the pork & vegetable dumplings, there was a variety of vegetables in the bowl. The steamed dumplings had smooth slightly chewy skins with rather delectable fillings. The noodles were the typical instant ramen but the soup was very flavourful. Overall, it was a wholesome and comforting bowl of hot noodles.

    

Daebak’s Jajangmyeon, or black bean sauce noodles, had a sauce that was really thick and black. The fresh cucumber slices and sunny side up egg made the dish look more appetizing. The cucumber also added a crunchy texture. Daebak’s special Jajangmyeon sauce was smooth and sweetish. The noodles had a good bite. It was one of the more enjoyable jajangmyeon we had tried.

Authentic Korean Feel

If you miss traveling to Korea and eating like the locals there in small intimate restaurants, you can go to Daebak Korean Restaurant at Wilkie Edge. Run by Koreans and patronised by many Koreans, you will hear Korean being spoken as well as K-pop songs and K-drama OST being played in the restaurant. You half expect to see Park Min Young and Park Seo Joon eating ramyeon at the next table. The food at Daebak is nice and does look like the everyday stuff eaten by the people in K-dramas. Were the noodles as wonderful as the delicious dishes seen in the dramas? Unfortunately I can’t really say, because I have never been invited to someone’s home for ramyeon, yet.
