Rivalry & Enmity

For many years, Singapore has been compared to Malaysia. And in recent years, K culture has been facing up to J culture in Asia and many parts of the world. While Malaysia has its Nijyumaru, it is not surprisingly that Singapore has its Mee Doo. Situated at “Little Korea” in Tanjong Pagar belt, Mee Doo can be found along the stretch of shop-houses which houses many other Korean restaurants and even a Korean gift and souvenir shop.

Although its exterior is not as lavish as Nijyumaru, its interior, food and price is definitely evenly match. With local Koreans eating among you and even the service staff - Koreans, once again you are ensured that the Korean food served is definitely authentic.

We were served small dishes of appetisers including Kimchi to kick start off our lunch, typical of Korean culture.

For mains without a doubt, we ordered the all time fav of Ginseng Chicken Soup and Bibimbap - a highly nutritious dish that incorporates a variety of different vegetables and meat atop of rice, and usually dish up along with sweet sauce served in a colourful manner.

We also tried the “non-hot & spicy beancurd stew with shellfish, sliced pork & egg” and the grilled Unagi or eel, a typical Japanese dish.

My final verdict – Japan 1, Korea 1.

Food: 4/5
