The other day we overheard a conversation between two guys on the bus about how there weren’t enough Korean restaurants in London. Let’s hope they are Handbook readers then, because there’s a new ‘table and market; concept opening in Soho today, from Korean restaurateur and entrepreneur, Linda Lee (owner of Koba and On The Bab).
Mee Market will open on Archer Street and will be split across two levels, offering Korean and Asian-inspired dishes. There’ll be a Korean poke rice and salad bar, Asian-stews, hot pots and side dishes and Korean and Asian-inspired dry foods including a customised Mee Market white and brown rice dispenser. Fancy. There’ll also signature dishes from both Koba and On The Bab (so really you’re getting 3 for 1) or if you want to cook at home then you’ll be able to buy Asian ingredients from the market section. Downstairs you’ll find Mee Market homeware, accessories and stationary – ideal if you’re looking for Christmas presents for a Korean food fan.
If the guys on the bus felt like Korean food was underrepresented in London, then Mee Market is going to be the next step to changing that…
Mee Market: Opens 4th December 2018, 9a Archer Street, Soho, W1D 7AX, www.meemarket.co.uk
