Masito closed and then re-opened as another Korean restaurant called Rýže II – we didn’t visit yet.
Hidden on a quiet street in the Vinohrady area of Prague, Masito offers authentic Korean food at reasonable prices. I really can’t fault this place and recommend a visit.
The interior has a clean, modern feel, with plenty of space between tables.
Our Korean waitress was friendly and spoke perfect English. We asked for a cup of yellow tea (30 Kč), a 200ml glass of decent Italian red wine (89 Kč) and a jug of tap water (free!).
To start we shared excellent Gun Mandu (89 Kč for five pieces, but we were given six).
Gun Mandu are similar to Japanese Gyoza. If the dumplings are grilled or fried, they are called gun mandu; when steamed, jjin mandu and when boiled, mul mandu.
The side dishes are all included as part of the overall meal – I’m not sure if they’d appear if you just had a starter. I’m not a kimchi (bottom right) expert, but I thought it was perfect.
For our main courses we had delicious Ojingeo bokkeum, spicy stir-fried squid (249 Kč including rice) and Bulgogi (219 Kč including rice).
Our total bill 676 Kč which I think was very reasonable for such great food and service. I really can’t fault this place and recommend a visit.
