SEOUL DIARIES 035: 자장면 JAJANG MYEON

Pre-boarding, transit passengers may delight in a quick bowl of super awesome korean black bean noodles from DeliSky at Incheon International Airport. My last meal in Korea before heading home: 자장면 Jajangmyeon!

Have always loved slurping up these gooey mash of black bean paste with neverending strands of chewy noodles. Back when it was winter in Korea, 2010, my university friends and I walked a reaaaaally long way whilst freezing our asses off just to eat jajangmyeon and that was the best bowl of jajangmyeon I’ve ever had. Nothing I eat these days even come close to that! Jajangmyeon holds a fair bit of magic for me.

Did you know: in mixing the black bean sauce (chunjang), caramel is added to create its thick gooey-ness?
