SquareMeal Review of
Mee Market combines take-away counter, dining space and retail outlet under one roof, yet the mixed concept works. The culinary angle is Korean, with diners able to choose from a simple range of well-priced snacks, bowls or soups, most involving meat, although vegetarians are also looked after. Mee Market does not do formality – think tin trays, clear plastic bowls and a zen-minimalist design ethos – but it’s the food that counts here. The soy ginger and sweet and spicy chicken small dishes with which we kicked things off packed a lot of punch, while the more substantial ‘bee bowls’ (rice mixed with meat, vegetables and spicy sauce) showed a good range of flavour and texture along with stylish presentation. Drinks come straight from the fridge and there are only limited desserts and hot drinks are available – more effort on this front would be welcome. Nonetheless, locals seem to love the place, with a constant stream of people queuing for take-outs.
