MUL NAENGMYEON (KOREAN COLD NOODLE SOUP) Let’s make some popular Korean summer noodles – Mul Naengmyeon! These noodles are served in icy cold broth and will help you forget about hot and humid summer weather! WHAT IS MUL NAENGMYEON
Mul Naengmyeon or Mul Naengmyun (물냉면) is cold noodles served in a chilled broth made from beef and/or Korean radish water kimchi (dongchimi, 동치미).
The noodles are also topped with sliced cucumbers, Korean pears, pickled radishes, boiled beef and boiled egg. These add subtle flavor of sweetness, tanginess and savoriness in between them. Overall the noodles have a very mild and refreshing taste and are somewhat moreish.
Naengmyeon was originally enjoyed during the winter months of Korea but it became a popular summer noodles. This makes more sense to me since the noodles and broth are served very cold!
Another popular time to have naengmyeon is as you finish Korean BBQ. For sure, not everyone has spare stomach after doing Korean BBQ, but many Koreans order naengmyeon as their pre-dessert dish.
As you can imagine, these cold noodles and broth taste even more refreshing after a hot and smoky BBQ experience. 😉
MUL NAENGMYEON VS. BIBIM NAENGMYEON
Mul Naengmyeon has a sister noodle called Bibim Naengmyeon. Unlike Mul nangmyeon, those noodles are served dry (these’s no broth) and it’s quite spicy.
Naturally, you will see some people preferring one over the other. I love them both, but I do love the spicy sensation the bibim naengmyeon gives me!AED 36.75AED 36.75
Bibim Naengmyeon (Spicy cold noodles) is a perfect way to beat the summer heat! It’s cold, spicy, sweet and tangy. Everything you need is all in one bowl! One of my favourite ways of beating the summer heat is having Bibim Naengmyeon (비빔냉면). If you translate these words in plain English, it means ‘cold mixed noodles’.
As with Bibimbap (Korean mixed rice), the words “Bibim (mixed)” often project “SPICY” even though it is not necessarily the case all the time. So, Bibim Naengmyeon is often described as Korean spicy cold noodles.
A lot of Koreans love eating Bibim Naengmyeon in summer because it’s served cold. Sometimes, it’s even served with shredded ice made with beef broth. For sure, you will be forgetting that it’s summer while you’re eating these noodles. 🙂
Bibim Naengmyeon is served with spicy chilled bibim sauce along with sweet, tangy and crunchy radish pickles and sweet, juicy and crispy Asian pear. Seriously, who can say no to this combination?!AED 36.75AED 36.75

Chuka soba are the Japanese version of Chinese egg noodles. They’re curly, made with wheat flour, and often used to make the soupy dish known as ramen. Chuka soba (“Chuka” is the Japanese word for Chinese) shouldn’t be confused with Japanese soba, the straight, tan-colored noodles made from buckwheat flour.
Sometimes saffron or yellow dye is added for color. They’re often used in cold noodle salads and stir-fries.
At Asian markets and in the Asian foods section of some supermarkets, look for a brick of dried, curly noodles wrapped in cellophane. Unlike other Asian noodles, chuka soba noodles don’t need pre-soaking or frying. Simply boil the noodles until tender (about three minutes), drain them, and proceed with the recipe.AED 23.10AED 23.10
Jjolmyeon refers to either a type of Korean noodles that have a very chewy texture and are made from wheat flour and starch or a cold and spicy dish made with the noodles and vegetables. Jjolmyeon can add a lot of vegetables such as cabbage and bean sprouts. The spicy and hot sauce is a combination of gochujang (chili pepper paste), vinegar, sugar, and minced garlic. It is also a type of bibim guksu (mixed noodles).AED 31.50AED 31.50
