October 11, 2013 Myung Dong 1st Ave
Myung Dong is located on the corner of Harvard and Brighton Ave. The decor is sparse, TV’s on the wall playing K-pop and some graffiti on the wall. Other than that, it looks like a typical Allston bar on the inside. The food however is delicious.
KImchi Pancake: Korean style pancake lightly pan fried with scallions and kimchi; served with seasoned soy sauce. A little spicy, lip tingling. A hearty dish.
Small order of fried dumplings: Lightly fried pork & vegetable dumplings; served with seasoned soy sauce. I love these – a really delicious dumpling – the filling is tasty and the wontons are perfectly golden brown.
Mandoo ramen: Ramen noodles, pork dumplings, scallions, sliced carrots, and egg drop in a spicy broth. The ramen is amazing. The broth is spicy – not unbearable, but spicy. The dumplings plus the noodles make this a carb lovers dream. By the time I was done, I was completely full. I was dreaming about this ramen for the whole week!
Dduk Ramen: Ramen noodles with rice cakes, scallions, sliced carrots, and egg drop in a spicy broth. We went back and had takeout the following week – I had been thinking about this ramen since we were there before. It combines my favorite things, rice cake noodles and ramen. The broth was spicy, but bearable. The soup was good at home, but I think for best results, ramen is best consumed at the restaurant.
