Liv’ED It is an ED original style where we write about our personal experiences on experiencing and reviewing any app/place/website which gives us a feeling of coming back for more.
I’m surrounded by K-Pop enthusiasts and they take their enthusiasm above and beyond to actually immersing themselves in Korean culture. They love the food, the TV shows, the movies and the music groups.
And so I decided to tag along with them to their yet another visit to Korean Culture Centre with the intention of gorging on some good food with good company.
How To Reach:
Nearest metro station is Moolchand on the Violet Line. It’s barely 5 minutes in an auto from the station. Honestly, it’s near enough that you can walk from the station.
Ambience and Décor:
The second you enter the building, you’re greeted with a warm lobby area.
The cafe itself is not very fancy, but its very open and receives a lot of light on sunny afternoons (which is everyday in Delhi) and I love open spaces so that was a definite plus point for me!
Though the building itself is filled with little trinkets and has vibrant happy corners, the café itself lacks a certain ambience that I have come to expect from cafés.
But what the café lacks in décor, it makes up for it in food! And after all that’s what we came here for anyway!

What We Ordered:
The Cafe offers a variety of scrumptious dishes and beverages. They have a separate page on their menu all for Korean Tea!
We ordered the following:
Bi Bim Bab
And Mango Shake, Blueberry Shake, Chocolate Shake, Cold Vienna Coffee, and Iced Tea to wash all those delicacies down with.
The portions were big and the food was beyond delicious. My favourite dish has to be the Shin Noodles. They are basically the ready to make ramen noodles (take your Maggi for instance) you get in your local market, but where the store-bought ramen noodles always leave a waxy coating in my mouth, these were not just better, but absolutely perfect.
The chicken pop was another one of my favourites. But I have to say the beverages were the highlight of the afternoon! Especially try the blueberry shake, if you do visit the cafe!
Prices at this café are very reasonable, especially considering the portion sizes of each dish! We ordered a bunch of dishes, for 5 people, and the bill was around 1700.
We left the place with a full stomach and a happy heart.
