Myeong Dong Topokki - Korean Food Review

A few days ago, I was at Myeong Dong Topokki, 1 Utama Shopping Center with some blogger friends and tasted some very delicious Korean food. Myeong Dong Topokki was established in 2014 and brought together various Korean street food served with a variety of Korean signature delicacies. This restaurant emphasizes efficiency, convenience and quick service. Customers need to order, get a receipt with a number and wait for the number before taking the food.


I have been to Seoul with my mom many years ago and when we were there, the tour guide introduced a kind of rice cake drenched with spicy red chilli sauce called Topokki. This was enjoyed by Royal Koreans before it was widely introduced to others around 1950s. Topokki is very popular in Korea and I remember it tasted really good and we bought it from the hawker stall. In Korea, it is eaten as a snack or full meal.

If you want to try some mouth-watering snacks or main meals with a great atmosphere with friends and family, do check this restaurant.

 Dol Sot Bibimbap is a signature Korean dish served as a bowl of warm white rice topped with vegetables, beef and egg. The side dishes are fried anchovies with peanuts, kimchi and bean sprout & carrot slices. The bowl was very hot and kept my rice warm even till the last bite.

Seafood Ramyum - The soup was quite spicy and a little salty, seafood was fresh and the noodles was springy. I like the seaweed that was sprinkled on top of it. It was really tasty.
