It was lunch period and it was hot in the outside. I was finding a comfortable indoor spot to dine in. I came across this Korean restaurant. The dishes there are offered at affordable prices. Hence, I decided to choose the restaurant as the place for my lunch. When I stepped in, I had the feeling that I was in some Korean countryside. I had one of the chef recommended dishes the restaurant offers, mul naengmyeon, a Korean cold noodle dish.

The cold noodles are buckwheat noodles drenched in cold soup and topped with pickled radishes, sliced cucumbers, a piece of beef, a slice of Asian pear and a slice of hard boiled egg. The buckwheat noodles are springy. They taste like chewing gum because they are hard to be bitten. The soup is watery, refreshing and has the numbing spiciness of wasabi. The pickled radishes are crunchy and taste sweet and sour. The cucumber slices are crunchy and refreshing. The beef is tender and chewy. The slice of pear is crunchy and refreshing likewise. It gives the dish some sweetness. The hard boiled egg adds flavour to the dish. The bowl of cold noodles is accompanied with a bottle of sesame sauce and a bottle of vinegar. The savouriness of the sesame sauce and the sourness of the vinegar quench the spiciness of the soup. There are four side dishes to go with the cold noodles - kimchi, stewed potatoes, stir-fried bean sprouts and fried anchovies with chilli. There are people who say that the taste of kimchi is a medley of all five tastes - sweet, sour, bitter, salty and spicy hot. To me, the kimchi is strongly sweet and sour and mildly bitter and spicy. The stewed potatoes are soft and savoury. The stir-fried bean sprouts are crunchy. The dried anchovies are soft and meaty. The chilli gives the dried anchovies a spicy flavour.


The cold noodles was acceptable in my opinion. The environment of the restaurant is cool and calm. There are other good Korean dishes such as dolsot bibimbap and samgyetang and canned drinks imported from South Korea available in the restaurant. Well, if I have the free time, I'll come there the next time.
