A Chinese run Japanese and Korean restaurant in Van Dyck tapas street. If you fancy a change from the typical montaditos and fried potatoes then perhaps Mr Ramen will be your saviour.
After living in South Korea for three and a half years we had a craving for Korean food. Other than instant noodles and ingredients to prepare at home, from the Chinese supermarkets in Avenida de Italia, there isn’t any other choice for Korean food in Salamanca.
The menu has a few Korean inspired offerings and we chose the Korean Bi Bim Bap. Bi Bim Bap is a rice dish that comes with a range of vegetables, meat and is topped with a fried egg and gochujang (Korean chilli sauce). When it arrives you mix it together and enjoy.
After years of eating Korean food, the bi bim bap at Mr Ramen certainly isn’t the best but it is a fair interpretation of one of Korea’s iconic dishes. For us the dolsot hot pot (the bowl) that the dish comes in needs to be extremely hot so that the bottom layer of rice becomes crispy.
If you want a change or fancy trying Korean food then the inexpensive dishes at Mr Ramen are worth a try.
