There’s a new café in town that’s not to be missed: from aesthetics, to vibes and food, Kimchi Dining has it all! Located at level 6 of Orchard Central, Kimchi Dining boasts high ceilings and clear windows to let in the natural sunlight, and give you a glasshouse-esque vibe and stunning views of Orchard Road below.
The space is also super IG-worthy, with floral decor hanging from the ceilings, lush greenery decorating the space and gorgeous wood and rattan furniture. Kimchi Dining’s concept is elevated modern Korean fare, with a fusion twist, so you’ll see some familiar and classic Korean dishes, each plated beautifully.
Highlights from the menu include Charred Baechu ($18), Pork Jowl Ssam ($33), Makgeolli Bread ($6), Corn Cheese ($18), Gamjajeon ($19) and more. For heartier mains like carbs and noodles, go for their Myeongran Bibimbap ($23), Jeju Pork Noodle ($19), Kimchi Bibim Noodle ($16) or Janchi Noodle ($16), just to name a couple. While the place is meant to be a “café”, we’d say it leans more towards a semi-fine dining experience, given how meticulously presented each dish is.
Of course, with a name like “Kimchi Dining”, you’d expect kimchi to be heavily featured in their menu, and it is! You can try a selection of Kimchi Dining’s signature house-made kimchi in their Kimchi Platter ($10), with 6 different types of kimchi on rotation daily. You can also get takeaway jars of their homemade kimchi to take home with you!
Kimchi Dining also has dessert options like Berry Dalgona ($9) and Black Sesame ($9), as well as unique drinks like Makgeolli Cocktail (from $13), Jeju Tangerine Peel ($9), Omija Float ($9.50), Roasted Bellflower Root ($9) and others.
