Moo Kyo Dong Nak Ji

If you love Korean spicy food then you will love Moo Kyo Dong Nak Ji. Similar to Joon's, it features table top cooking. I actually prefer this restaurant to Joon's.. so much more authentic!

Moo Kyo Dong Nak Ji
Where: 7325 Yonge Street, Thornhill, ON
Price: $$

Ban chan assortments

Octopus Table Top ($12.99 per order | minimum 2 orders )
The picture above displays 2 orders. The dish includes octopus, pork, watercress, beansprouts, cabbage, rice cakes, onions, zucchinis, leeks, carrots and glass noodles.  You can choose the spicy level (mild, regular, extra spicy) but we stuck with regular. This actually turned out to be TOO spicy for us.

Once they bring it out to you, they will actually cook it for you so you don't need to worry about mixing it all together :)!
Sizzling away!
To cool off our fiery mouths, we ordered cold noodles which was SO refreshing after that spicy meal!
It is quite a substantial portion but I didn't find anything particularly special about these noodles. Other Korean restaurants definitely make it better.. Don't think I would order again.
Cold Noodles in Beef Broth ($13.99)
Overall I really enjoyed Moo Kyo Dong Nak Ji! I would come back BUT order the mild spicy level this time.
