While New York City's Mokbar is known for its hotcakes, perhaps the true star of the menu is the Matcha Melon bowl.
The Matcha Melon Bowl is an over-the-top dish that starts with a hollowed-out watermelon. The sweet fruit bowl is then filled to the brim with green-hued matcha noodles. To top it off, the noodles are combined with shrimp, pickled watermelon rinds, Gochujang sauce, sesame seeds, and, of course, some pureed watermelon juice. The result is a sweet, spicy, and juicy dish that packs a lot more flavor than your average watermelon.
If you're eyeing the Matcha Melon Bowl, just be warned that the dish is on the hefty side, so its best shared with others.
