After seeing huge success in Daegu, a city in Korea's southeast region, MIES Container (named for its shipping container themed interior) opened its first Seoul branch in the capital near Gangnam station. The news spread like wildfire through Korean foodie communities and drew long lines on its opening day. So far, it seems, customers have not been disappointed: MIES Container now runs two branches in the Gangnam area, EAST and WEST. WEST is the 1st branch and is easier to access, being closer to Gangnam station. Their menu is an Italian-inspired amalgamation of ingredients. For example, the salad spaghetti is spaghetti with a heap of fresh vegetables piled on top. Their most popular menu item is the so-called "spoon pizza," a doughless pizza served in a deep dish. As is common for restaurants catering to young people, their seasonings are strong and their servings are large. Inside there's a lively atmosphere—and it's a well-known fact that their attractive male staff makes this place especially popular with the ladies.
