at Noodle in the Box (Hyundai Department Store)
-Apgujeong, Gangnam, Seoul, Republic of Korea-
Noodle in the Box is a Pan-Asian restaurant. Located in the food court at Hyundai Department Store.
Their signature Noodle Box was okay. Stir-fried rice noodles with bean sprouts, pork, and mussels in oyster sauce, vaguely Thai-ish. At 6,000 won, it wasn’t expensive but a bit skimpy in portion. Most promising were the noodles, which were wide like chow fun and cooked perfectly to maintain their chewy texture, both a rarity in Korea. Their other dishes, each inspired from different parts of Asia, with names such as “Curry Chicken Noodle Box” and something called “Shanghai Spicy Noodle Box,” also feature the same noodles.
I might go back for another shot.
