Mul Naeng Myeon
at Pyeonyang Myeonok
-Jangchung, Jung, Seoul, Republic of Korea-
with the Family, Dad
Funny, the last time that I ate at Pyeonyang Myeonok, I was still of the mind that it served the best mul naeng myeon in the world (see 7.159 Mul Naeng Myeon), not yet having discovered Jinmi (8.296 Mul Naeng Myeon).
As of today, Seoul is implementing Level 3 restrictions for Covid-19, which includes a cap of 4 persons on any public gathering.
We were a party of 5, so we had to sit at 2 separate tables.
As ever, the MNM was excellent. Taste memory confirms that it is essentially the same formulation as the MNM at Jinmi – I remain convinced that Jinmi was started by a former employee of Pyeongyang Myeonok – but the latter is just a tad better: beefier broth, chewier noodles. Anyway, it’s still an industry leader.
