MIST: Hong Kong Michelin Starred Ramen House

Mist at D-Cube City Seoul

MIST is a new ramen shop at D-Cube City near Sindorim Station. It is the first of it’s kind in Seoul and it is probably the most popular shop in the entire complex. The style, the broth and the noodles is the perfect combination for a country obsessed with noodles. The broth here is like liquid gold and the pork melts on the tongue. The noodles are slick yet with a firmness that is almost elusive. This is one of the best bowls of ramen I have had outside of Japan and it even tops some of the noodle shops there.

I recommend you get their regular noodles with the Shoyu sauce. I had the miso ramen as well. They are good, but the miso covers up the magical broth and you don’t want to do that.

They also have great gyoza with a bit of star anise on top which is a very nice touch.

The noodles here are made in house, so a bowl isn’t cheap. I think it started at 8,000 won and some bowls were like 12,000 won. It’s well worth it and I am making plans to head back there soon.

Mist is a treat and it is nice to see that Seoul is stepping up and adding world class restaurants. It is becoming an exciting foodie city.

3 stars out of 4 (an excellent bowl of noodles)

    Personally, I’m not a big fan.
    I’ve had a few different dishes just to give them the benefit of the doubt.
    But every single ramen is very very oily! Can’t get myself to finish the whole bowl..
