We joined the soju geniuses at Momojein to raise a glass in celebration of their first year on the Hong Kong dining scene serving up Korean dishes with fabulous flavours and flair. On 28 September, an excited bunch of fellow foodies flocked to meet Lim Hee Won, a renowned chef who has spent over a decade in the industry and is one of the stars of Korean cooking shows. His pin-up good looks mixed with a down-to-earth nature and extreme passion for creating delicious cuisine have earned him a bevy of enthusiastic supporters back in Korea, and his fangirl team have now extended to Hong Kong (and team Foodie).
A little under a year ago, a team of experts were flown in from Korea to create Momojein's contemporary, casual and all-round beautiful space in QRE Plaza, and they’ve been racking up the renown ever since. They marked this one-year landmark with a celebration party that showcased the best of their dishes and soju cocktails.
We dined on Momojein's signature kalbi hotteok, which is a delicious mix of minced beef deep-fried in a sweet patty, as well as their portobello meatballs with tofu cream, dakgangjeong (fried chicken), beef rolls, grilled squid and broccoli with black garlic aioli. We washed down the rich flavours with sweet sips from sought-after soju label Moonbae Sool, made into soju mojitos and sour cocktails, as well as an eclectic selection of fruit beers, from grapefruit and grape to lemon and pomegranate.
With such a great turnout of fans, foodies and fun makers, we wish that Momojein could turn one every week!
Not only are they ace at parties, Momojein also offer an incredible deal for brunch on the weekends, home-brewed fruit enzyme cocktails and, of course, their great lunch and dinner menus. Our editors have been time and again and are currently boasting about their latest tasting of Momojein's new menu.
