In Montevideo there are many excellent restaurants and a wonderful variety of good food, especially offering asado and grilled meats or Italian food. Although they exist, Asian restaurants are harder to find. One of the best so far is the Restaurante Coreano, Myeong Ga, which is just off Plaza Independencia. The food is great,
as good as any I had in Korea during my three trips, or the excellent Korean food I became used to in Seattle.
Lovers of spicy Korean food will not be disappointed, but you can also request a mildly spiced dish, and there are dumplings and other chinese style choices as well as the traditional barbecue meat, hotpots, and rice bowls. The small dishes and rice that round out the meal are delicately flavored and excellent.
