Kkongdon is located on the first floor of SAFRA Toa Payoh. It is a 5-min leisure walk from Toa Payoh Interchange. The restaurant is not immediately visible upon entering the cold building, one has to walk right in, past the lift lobby and through a pair of glass doors. We were here for dinner after a company event.The interior is dark because of the dim lighting in the middle and the strong lighting hitting against the walls from spotlights. I think that having Japanese katakana on the board bel
And rice. The service staff did brush a layer of oil or something on the flat pan but our chicken and short ribs got stuck to the pan pretty badly!! They became charred really easily!! So the bits stuck onto the pan kept getting more and more charred. -_-"
The meat was still sticking to the pan even after the service staff came to brush layers of oil, twice. -_-"
Though the pan was really bad, the meat turned out quite okay. Mainly because of the marinate?
The short rib is tough and hard to separate from the bone. But the marinate makes it taste nice. It's not too salty nor sweet.
The spicy chicken is also tough and true enough, it's hot and spicy but nothing I can't take. However, it's a tad too spicy for my colleague.
The stew is okay, still edible. The tofu is soft and Singaporean market tofu. Didn't notice any meat inside though they're supposed to be there.
As for the final dish, it's the rice cakes. Like.. The colour of the dish is okay and may make one think it should taste nice but it's got no taste actually. Bland. Looks are deceiving.
Overall, it's a very bad dinner, it's the first time in a while for me to have such a disappointing meal. I will never go back to any Kkongdon in the future.
