Kim's Family Restaurant at Lorong Kilat

Lorong Kilat's been busy these days, what with the new shops that are sprouting along that small lane. Within the last few years, a Korean grocery shop (yay!), restaurants, ice cream parlours have opened there. Luckily for me, that area is within 15-20 minutes walking distance for me, and I find myself walking there more often for icecream, or even dinner with friends.


I tried out Kim's Family a few weeks back and was pleasantly delighted with the range of banchans (side dishes) offered at the place. They gave nine banchans, and even a small fish that made up the total side dishes to ten. I had a craving to try something new - thus, the ginseng chicken soup. Siew ordered the raw tuna salad, and we shared a kimchi pancake. It was alot of food for just the two of us, and we barely finished our meal. (:

The food was moderate, a quick fix for Korean cravings when I have the urge. Some banchans were nice, some so-so. I especially like the kimchis type of banchans more just because I like kimchi. The ginseng chicken soup was good, that's a personal opinion of mine without any comparisons to others as it was my first taste of this dish. I thought the pancake was okay, but it could have been better if it was crispier around the edges. That, again, is a matter of personal preference. I miss the pancake from Brisbane's Mad Tong San! The pancake was thin and crisp and the dipping sauce was awesome. Sigh.

Smiley Siew.

Silly Siew.

Nevertheless, I had a good time with Siew there. In fact, we visited it again recently (but I left my SLR at home :( ). And they gave a total of 11 banchans, plus the small fish the second time round! We ordered the barbeque pork to share and I think it was not that great. I think I was spoilt by Woo Aa's homecooked Korean barbeque in Brisbane that's why. I love Korean food. (:
