Okay, back to dumplings…
Am I allowed to say I don’t like Myung In Dumplings?
The bun is nice, a little doughy. But the filling is pretty bland and just not very appetizing.
Again, they’re cooked well, but the fillings are stiff and just not very flavorful. My cousin likes them; which is curious, since the (very similar) gyoza she makes are far better.
The other problem I have with their dumplings, there’s always a piece of bone or some other undesirable inside.
Beef Ribeye Soup
Now this I like. Although they only put about one piece of beef rib in.
We had a funny experience last time we were there. An older Korean man came in, looked at our table and another table with two “hamsters” and starting talking loudly. The only part we understood was “Anthony Bourdain!” For the record, my cousin & I had been going there way before the Parts Unknown episode. It’s been our ritual to get a scrub at Hankook Spa (closed for remodeling) then eat at Myung.
Can anyone recommend another dumpling spot in K-town?
