Service: 4 * * * * Dubu Kimchi (두부김치): 4 * * * *
Style: 4 * * * * Bindaeddeok (녹두빈대떡): 4 * * * *
Ambience: 4.5 * * * * 1/2
OVERALL: 4.5 * * * * 1/2
Sanee (산이): 4 * * * * (sweet, light, fruity)
Baekyeon (백연): 3 * * * (bitter, strong, chalky)
Haechang (해창): 3 * * * (sour, sharp, milky)
Muldwinda has a modern stylish interior with plenty of space and a relaxed comfortable atmosphere. There is an attention to detail when it comes to service and the menu has some unique versions of traditional dishes.
What Mamas & Papas liked: The bindaeddeok!! Overwhelmingly positive reviews describing it to be crispy, moist and non-greasy, one Mama described it as ‘The perfect complement to makgeolli!’. Also coming highly recommended was the Sanee (산이) makgeolli, as a drinkable crowd pleaser for those who are not very familiar with makgeolli.
What Mamas & Papas didn’t like: Not much!! However some were unsure of the Dubu Kimchi. It’s done in a very different style and some Mamas & Papas thought it to be too much dubu and not enough kimchi. Note for future visits: You may order kimchi refills as service .

How to get there: Go to Chungjeongno station (line 2 & 5) and take exit 7. Turn right immediately and follow the road for about 7-10 minutes. It’s a quiet street, so you might feel like you are going the wrong way, untilyou will see a shining white building across the street with lights and windows…this is Muldwinda. Or check out the map.
