Well-being Rice Cafe in Myeong-Dong is located right below Miss Lee cafe. Kirby and I came here for an early lunch before eating Sannakji (raw octopus). I have always loved Chinese congee, so I really wanted to try Korean porridge. The exterior of the restaurant looked very appealing and had pretty pictures. As a traveller, that’s kinda what appeals to me…I know… it’s quite horrible.
The interior was brightly lit and had a good amount of seats. When we arrived, it was empty, but it soon filled up.
Everything is self-serve, so you need to grab your own water.
Vegetable Dolsot BiBimbap (6,500 won = $6.50 CDN) was very delicious! It is served in a hot stone bowl and comes with seaweed soup, and 2 side dishes.
You just mix all the items together in the bowl. It’s very healthy and yummy.
The side dishes were good, but the cup of prune juice was kinda disgusting.
Beef Mushroom Porridge (8,000 won = $8 CDN) comes in a huge portion with 3 side dishes, prune juice and cold soup.
It was really delicious and it’s really different from Chinese congee. It definitely something you must have!
The 3 side dishes were good too and it was a nice addition to the meal.
Overall, the meal was very good and I would definitely come here again! Order the porridge! the downside is that the service was a bit slow.
