Mukshidonna – Journey to the East for Glorious Korean Rice Cakes
Did you have the chance to try Mukshidonna Tteokbokki Restaurant when you were in Seoul? If you did, or even if you didn’t, then you would be elated to know that they’ve finally heard our cries. YES, they are currently housed in E! Avenue at Downtown East (not E! Hub). Lucky for you, Easties!
Interestingly, Mukshidonna means Eat (Muk), Rest (Shi), Pay (Don), Leave (Na). So, what’s the hype? A bubbling sweet and spicy stew that will make your eyes sparkle. Rice cakes and fish cakes will be included for sure, but choose from a variety of soup bases which includes beef and mussels ($13.90 per person). You may also add on ramyun noodles ($3) and savoury toppings ($3) to make your pot look as appetising as possible. May the best-looking stew win.
I see that you can’t sit still and wait anymore. Go on, start off by digging into the fresh mussels. I have received tough rice cakes before, and I’m so glad that the ones from this eatery ain’t anything like those.
I can’t emphasise this enough but you MUST MUST have cheese ($3) atop. Cheese and Korean food go hand in hand and nothing shall separate them. Watch as the cheese slowly melts and engulfs the noodle strands. If you have space in your stomach for more, order a serving of fried rice ($5) to soak up all the leftover juices – it’s the best part.
Close your eyes and I promise that you will feel like you have been transported to Korea again. As we went on a rainy day, you can imagine how the hot broth comforted us like a mother’s hug. Oh, do remember to bring someone along as you need a minimum of 2 to dine.
