I still remembered the first time I saw the picture of this dish, I thought to myself, is that a bowl of cake?
but no! it is a bowl of curry udon! just topped with loads and loads of crean. Tokkijung of Gangnam (3 alleys behind Gangnam CGV) is the place that first came out with it and even after over a year of its debut in the stylish restaurant, the restaurant requires around an hour of wait in average to get a seat. but fret not! because they have a waiting app that notifies you when you should go back to the restaurant! (the directions to download the app is stuck outside the restaurant door!)
the restaurant takes up an entire bunglow and it is much bigger than it looks! the whole setting is very clean-cut and Japanesey. perfect for instagrammers.
unlike most popular restaurants in Seoul, this place has a lot of space between tables and lighting’s great where ever you sit!
first up! we ordered marinated pork over rice or 돼지고기덮밥 (8,500원). it was very flavourful and delicious. absolutely loved it! however, I am not so sure about waiting for an hour to have this dish.
and of course, the famous Curry Cream Udon! 카레크림우동 (11,000원). I have to say, the cream was much lighter than I thought and the creaminess of the whipped cream gives the heavy curry a great twist! not to mention how photogenic the whole dish looks! (PS: it actually doesn’t taste like this dish will make you put on 5kgs) just think of putting some milk into your curry udon, that’s around how I took it. I definitely enjoyed the dish! worth a try but 11,000won for udon may be off the hook for my pocket to have it often.
oh hello! like my new bangs? (although it’s very much grown now..)
잘 먹겠습니다! let’s eat! mmmm.
