Mee Market | Soho London

Deli style cafes and markets are nothing new but a Korean one most certainly is. Mee Market is an all day Korean cafe with a deli counter/market shop/homeware store in the midst of Soho. I really like the concept of being able to pick up hot, freshly made food to go or eat in, and well as doing some authentic Korean grocery shopping. The set up reminds me of Japan Centre, which I love hanging out in. Mee Market is a part of On The Bab and Koba, both Korean restaurants I think highly of and would recommend in a heartbeat.

As soon as you walk in, Korean snacks and condiments line the rustic exposed brick wall to the right and the deli counter to the left. It was their first weekend of opening when I visited and the manager was very welcoming, explaining all the dishes they had on offer.

I always promptly go weak at the knees and leave a puddle of drool behind me whenever I see kimchi jjigae on the menu. Kimchi, pork and tofu stew over piping hot rice is just irresistible and naturally I gravitated towards that.

mee-market-soho-londonMee Market's kimchi jjigae had me almost weeping for joy, it was so sooo good! Tangy and salty from the kimchi with a delicious meatiness from the pork - the depth of flavour was incredible. The tofu did the best job of soaking up the luscious juices and I could barely stop eating it, bite after bite. If I ever were to crown the best kimchi jjigae award, it would be rightly given to Mee Market! 

The seating area is downstairs and opens up to a cosy space of dining and homeware shopping. All the homeware had me itching to spend some money...... so I did. I picked up a cute little card holder for G and some cute kraft coloured post-it notes.

I took home a BBQ beef rice bowl for G on my way out. It was tasty too, but I don't think I could ever get past re-ordering that kimchi jjigae again. The rest of the menu looks ever so tempting and I reckon I could eat here daily without getting bored.

Delicious and homey Korean food that doesn't break the bank. All their main dishes are £7-9 - bargain!

Thanks for having me Mee Market, you betcha I'll be back.
