Midam – Korean Restaurant in Brisbane

Bibim Naengmyeon

I had this particular food that I wanted to try for about two months. That was Naengmyeon (냉면, Korean cold noodles)! I wanted to try both versions – one served in an icy cold broth (Mul Naengmyeon, 물냉면) and one served in spicy sauce (Bibim Naengmyeon, 비빔냉면).

So I looked vigorously through the local Korean Sunday newspaper to find a possible place we could visit, and BINGO!

The place I chose was Midam (미담), which means a delicious story/conversation. Oh, I already like it! Brisbane Midam

Their speciality seems to be Korean charcoal BBQ, with all you can eat buffet available for AUD $25. From the outside, the store seems small, but inside was quite big and modern. They had one of the nicest interiors for a Korean restaurant I have seen in a while.

We sat down and after intensely staring at the lunch menu, we ordered Bibim Naengmyeon (#7 from the below menus) for me and Galbijjim (#5) for my husband.

I was hoping he would eat Mul Naengmyeon (#6) but he said cold noodles are not his kind of thing! (My eyes and mouth opened wide because of the shock.) And I was a bit disappointed because I didn’t get to taste both versions of Naengmyeon. 🙁

While I was waiting for the food to arrive, I played with my little camera. (I didn’t take my SLR as I didn’t want to look like a food paparazzi. So the overall quality of the photos are not as good as they could be.)

The food arrived only after 5 mins. How quick is that!

Midam Galbijjim

(Galbijjim served with Korean radish and Korean vermicelli – Tender meat had adequately sweet and savoury flavour; it was serviced with a bowl of rice.)

Midam Basic Side Dishes

 (Basic side dishes – Kimchi, Fish cake stir fry (어묵볶음) and mashed potato)

Nice! I was impressed with their fast service and mouth watering food presentation. After mixing the sauce well and with the assistance of a pair of scissors (to cut the chewy noodles), I enjoyed myself thoroughly! (so did my husband!)

Did I mention that this was my first time having Bibim Naengmyeon in 7-8 years? Yeah, it was extra tasty because of that I think! 🙂 I will definitely revisit this place again.
