Soju Bar – Myung Dong 1st Ave

29 07 2010

A random stumble. We were just finding a place in Allston that still serves food and drinks after 11 while able to carry on a conversation.

First thought.. cool, drinks and probably OK food. Surprisingly, the food at Myung Dong 1st Ave is better than expected. Fresh and tasty. All the appetizers we had a A-OK! Can’t go wrong when the Korean restaurant is filled with mostly Koreans in the middle of summer! This place is hopping as the night goes on.

What really caught my attention was soju in a fruit shell! We ordered a watermelon soju since

we thought it was cool. It tasted more like watermelon ice than an alcoholic beverage! Very tasty indeed. It would be nice if there was more of a kick to it since it did cost $30 for half a watermelon!

I would come back for the soju because of the “cool” factor of using fresh fruit! I LOVE watermelon!! Sad to say though, we did go to a tavern close by to get the kick into the system. I wish I was a light weight! Definitely a good hang in Boston for some casual drinks and food.
