Dimibang takes its name from one of the first Korean cookbooks written during the Joseon Dynasty. When asked if they use the book’s original recipes, the owners (a couple) shook their heads and laughed, saying: “People today couldn’t eat Joseon food—it’s too bland!” However, the restaurant is inspired by the philosophy of Dimibang, which championed Korean cooking methods and ingredients for maximum flavor. A bite of the soft bean curd soup proves their philosophy true. The rich and soft bean curd is balanced with bright, crunchy leeks and the subtle flavor of pork adds to every bite. Other popular menu items include the stir-fried pork and beef soup that you can enjoy as hearty meals or with a shot of soju at night.
