Update: Young Dabang is now called “Young Dabang Soulfood and Soju”. With the name change they did a slight renovation to their interior and now selling soju 소주. (October 19, 2018)
This is a newly opened place on the main road of Senopati. Young Dabang 청년다방 means ‘young coffee shop (da bang 다방)’. The franchise is setting a fresh trend among boon shik 분식 (Korean snack) lovers in Korea and hopefully Indonesia ;). Young Dabang 청년다방 reinterprets street-food Ddok Bok Kki 떡볶이 into a premium “dish”. Here, you could make customized Dduk bok kki 떡볶이.
we had Chadol Toppoki 차돌 떡볶이 (spicy rice cakes with beef) with mozzarella cheeze topping. It was pretty close to the Korean authentic taste. The dduk bok kki soup 국물 was a bit watery, I think, but overall wasn’t bad at all. Simply, Chadol Toppoki 차돌 떡볶이 was amazing! Original crispy chicken and Sweet chili chicken were surprise discoveries as the meat were amazingly soft and tender. Fried calamari was a bit out of my expectations. Was expecting stick-style fried calamari rather than onion ring style.
Of note, I think price is a bit steep, but overall, this is a place to revisit!
