A Korean-Japanese restaurant in the North West of Ireland sounds extraordinarily unlikely, but Nae Young Jung has made the unlikely adventure of Miso Sligo into an unlikely success story. The success has been built on cooking precise and flavourful food, and then serving it with friendly confidence, with Mr Jung happy to advise and counsel his customers on the details of the various dishes. The great Korean classics are here of course – bulgogi; bibimbap; a fine kimchi jeon pancake; delicate pok mandoo dumplings – whilst the Japanese element is seen in the impressive sushi sets. It’s a good strategy to begin with a sushi set and them progress to the fulsome satisfaction of the rice and meat dishes, served on their signature wooden plates. The room is simple and cosy, and Miso is a charming, heartfelt spot, and how rewarding to see them winning the best world cuisine award in the Irish Restaurant Association Awards.
