Welcome Mura!


In the “Better late than never” category, we are excited to say hello to Magnolia’s newest restaurant, Mura.

Located in the old Tanglewood location (3216 W. Wheeler Street), Mura was dreamt up by Kay and Ted Kim of Bellevue.

Both are currently working in the restaurant nonstop.? Kay got her start watching her aunt at her restaurant in Korea.??Kay worked as a server for 20 years, and she and Ted have spent many years creating and perfecting recipes passed down from Ted’s grandmother, mother, and colleagues. Kay says their aim is to provide “healthy comfort food that Koreans and Japanese eat every day.”

The menu is varied.? There are?gyozas, yakisobas,?and scallion pancakes.??Donburis (rice with toppings), Korean soft tofu stews, bibim?bowls?and udons, as well as short ribs, BBQ beef, BBQ chicken and house-made kimchi. The meals come with?salad (with a delicious dressing), miso soup, rice, and?Korean pickle.

Local Carol writes about her experience:

Four of us ate at Mura…Saturday evening. What a great addition to the?neighborhood! The food was delicious, fairly priced and promptly served. Our?server was gracious, helpful and charming. Every bite was delicious! They?have a liquor license, so wine and beer are available. It had been open only?four days but they were well-organized…We remember when the lumber yard was in that location, so?we’ve seen lots of coming and going there. I hope this one stays!

When asked why Magnolia for their first restaurant, Kay says “we were driving to see this spot and we just fell in love with the neighborhood.? When we got to the alley, we knew this was the spot.”

I have?dined there twice, and look forward to my next time!
