Do you love street food? I guess most of us do, especially if we’re talking about our own local street food. But what about street food famous in other countries? Have you tried some international street food, too, like the ones being sold at MyeongDong Topokki? For starters, MyeongDong Topokki is a chain of restaurants in Malaysia that primarily serves, well, believe it or not, Korean street food! Yes, you heard that right, Korean street food in Malaysia! Let’s take a peek at what this restaurant has to offer.
If it’s your first time to visit MyeongDong Topokki and if you’re not very familiar with Korean street food, I highly recommend checking out their menu first before going to the counter and placing your order. This is to reduce customer wait times at queue lines in case you’re still undecided on what to buy. This will also ensure that you won’tnot regret what you have ordered since you have taken the time to choose wisely.
First things first, if you want to experience authentic Korean street food, then you should order Ramyun Noodles. With thicker and softer noodles and a heartwarming broth that is really creamy, you would want to have Ramyun Noodles again and again. This is definitely a must-try at MyeongDong Topokki.
The next dish you should try is Bibimbap, which means “mixed rice” in Korean. It has everything you need for a balanced diet: good carbs from the rice, fiber and vitamins from the vegetables, and protein and fats from the meat. It is a bowl of white rice topped with delightfully seasoned vegetables (or fermented vegetables, depending on the diner’s choice), with raw egg and sliced beef. A fun fact about this dish – Bibimbap is listed at 40th place on the World’s 50 most delicious foods by CNN.
For dessert, I suggest you try the Korean rice cake called Topokki. It’s soft and sweet and chewy, similar to eclairs. You can also try their MDT (My Drink today) in four unique flavors: MDT Honey Citron, MDT Honey Vera, MDT Honey Apple, and MDT Honey Jujube. Almost no one leaves MyeongDong Topokki without having one of these drinks, which cost RM 5.80 each.
So next time you want to have Korean street food, you know where to go. In case you’re not able to visit the restaurant, then you can even order the food from your home through FoodPanda Malaysia. Just select what you want to have from the Myeongdong Topokki menu and they will deliver it to your home hot and fresh.
