Five Must-try Korean Noodle Dishes
Noodle dishes are already a common sight to behold on almost all Korean dining events. We’re pretty sure that you yourself already have your own favourite Korean noodle dishes. Well, we can’t blame you for it because nothing really beats the pleasurable feeling of slurping a fresh bowl of noodles simmered in flavourful broth. Imagine doing this on a hot day or cold night in some authentic Korean restaurant? Oh, that’s just pure bliss! Today we are featuring 5 popular Korean noodle dishes that you should devour when you get the chance:
1. Korean Cold Noodles (Mul Naengmyun)
Naeng myun (naengmyoen) is made out of cold, buckwheat noodles that is served in a flavourful, slightly sour broth and is topped with vegetables, egg, and sometimes even meat. This is very easy to prepare considering that this noodle dish is considered as a one-bowl meal. And given that this is a cold noodle dish, this comfort food is just your delicious companion during the sweltering summertime.
2. Korean Stir-Fried Noodles (Chapchae)
One of our personal favourite banchans is chapchae. What is there to not like about this noodle dish? Korean glass noodles that are stir-fried to perfection plus some generous serving of pork and vegetables tossed in? Oh, this is just too mouth-watering. Fortunately, making chapchae right at the comforts of your own home won’t even take away a significant chunk of your time given that its main ingredients are easy to find.
3. Cold Soybean Noodle Soup (Kong Gooksu)
This cold noodle dish is another great comfort food that is perfect for the hot months. Not only is this noodle dish very easy to prepare (even amateur cooks can whip up an amazing version of kong gooksu), this is also very filling and nutritious that is just popular among the vegans. We bet that you’ll fall in love with this noodles’ nutty texture as soon as you get to taste it.
4. Spicy Cold Noodles (Bibim Gooksu)
If you want a noodle version of one of Korea’s national dishes, bibimbap, then Bibim Gooksu is the one you’re looking for. This cold noodle dish just has the right amount of spice to please your palate as it indulges on a filling serving of noodles, egg, seasoned vegetables and meat of your choice.
5. Korean Noodles with Black Bean Sauce (Jajangmyun)
If there’s one highly popular noodle dish in Korea that should not escape your sensibilities, then that would have to be jajangmyun. This noodle dish is Korea’s answer to the black bean noodle dish of China and is also one of those dishes that perfectly combine the sweetness and tangy taste of its ingredients. This dish is generally cheap yet filling that’s why it’s very common for Koreans to have jajangmyun as a takeout meal.
