I've had my moments working for a company located at Pantai Indah Kapuk (PIK). Back at my days, PIK was an area which was not as crowded as it is today. You can even say that it was kind of desolated.
But PIK nowadays are way more attractive. It is now becoming a cool dining place, with so many unique restaurants spread around this particular area. The one that I visited was also quite unique. I'm talking about Dubu Jib.
The interior uses the colors of woody brown and stone grey. Giving it a warm and earthly impression, which is comfortable and nice. The service was pretty good too.
Tofu. As the restaurant's main star, for me it's quite good. The texture was fluffy. Not too soggy in particular. It had a decent taste also.
Kimchi. This one was also nice. For me, being served free itself is a good deal since most common Korean restaurant would charge me for this menu. The taste itself was pretty tasty. Had a good level of sourness and for my palate it wasn't too spicy also.
Odeng. Served dry with some chopped onions. Would be really good if there was a little bit of spicy soup along with it like the usual Odeng you might find in the streets of Korea. Tasted quite nice though. I like the savory taste of the Odeng.
Nori. Crispy paper-thin nori which had a nice flavor also. I love the crispy sound in every bite of this seaweed.
I also had the privilege to tried some of Dubu Jib's new dishes. It's coming soon and not listed on the menu book yet. Here they are.
Overall conclusion, to find an authentic Korean restaurant with delicious dishes is never easy. But it really helps to know that now there is such a place which not only over great food, but also great ambience and service.
This is a great spot for Korean food lovers. You will find authentic Korean dishes made by a genuine Korean chef. Prices are moderate. For some people maybe it's going to be a bit high, but trust me it's just totally worth it.
So, what are you waiting for, Korean food lovers? Huzzle up and satisfy your appetite at Dubu Jib!
Keep on chewing!
