This Korean restaurant (Myungdong Kalkuksu Noodle and Shabu Shabu (Toronto) in Toronto is worth reporting not necessary for the quality of the food to be honest but because of its king-sized dumplings! My friend invited me to go without giving me details of what I am going to get. Well, he did mention about unlimited supply of homemade kimchi.
To my surprise, the kimchi was quite good! The degree of spiciness was just right for my liking and not overly moist, with quite a bite left to it. I do like how they were served in a pot and of course unlimited supply!
I let my friend did the ordering so when the dumplings arrived, I was literally shocked by the size of it! It looks more like a … bun than a dumpling!
Just to make sure you get the size of this dumpling, I asked my friend to use a spoon as a prop to compared with in terms of size! Yes, They were bigger than a spoon can fit! Now I understand why my friend asked me not to eat anything for breakfast and save it for lunch at this place!
My friend should have told me when I suggested cold noodles as my main that (1) the dumplings starters may be enough (2) my cold noodles soup was made with very stomach filling soya bean!!!!! The soup was THICK and CREAMY! More like soya bean soup dessert than for noodles! It was the first time I tried cold noodles in such thick and heavy and bean-y soup. If you are a fan of soya bean, this is for you!
