Korean Cooking Ingredients – Noodles for Jajangmyeon and Jjamppong
This is a short post about one of the cooking ingredients (noodles) I use for Jajangmyeon (자장면, Korean black bean sauce noodles) and Jjamppong (짬뽕, Korean spicy noodle soup). When I first used this pack of noodles a few years ago, I instantly fell in love with them.
- Product name: Chinese style noodles = Jung-hwa-myeon (중화면)
- Brand name: Wang
- Manufacturer: SamJin GlobalNet
- Price: Approx AUD $6.00
- Serves 5 people
They look like some sort of egg noodles covered in white flour. And they are fresh. (Well, mine was kept in the freezer section but it separates well after 10 mins on room temperature.) I have to say that thanks to these noodles my Jajangmyeon and Jjamppong taste even more authentic as if it was made at a Korean Chinese restaurant. 🙂
I will be buying these noodles every time I make Korean Chinese noodle dishes from now on so long as I can get them! I hope you are lucky enough to get these noodles in your local Korean/Asian grocery store. Try them. You won’t be disappointed.
