5 Popular Korean Chinese Food

Koreans often enjoy eating Koreanized Chinese food like Jjajangmyeon (짜장면) and Jjambbong (짬뽕). Here, I will introduce you to the best five popular Korean Chinese foods. While you can go to a restaurant and eat, many people use delivery for these foods. There are tons of Korean Chinese food restaurants.

1. Jja-jang-myeon (짜장면)

Korean Chinese food 5

It is noodles with Chunjang sauce made from black soybeans and other ingredients like pork and vegetables. Usually the noodles are made by machine, but sometimes you can find noodles pulled by hand.

Some restaurants cut ingredients very small and make the sauce like the one in the picture above, while others cut them into a bite size. I like the former because the noodles and the sauce go along well.

Before eating, you mix the sauce on top and the noodles in the bottom well with chopsticks. (I have explained several times about how to mix them with chopsticks but again, one chopstick in the left hand and the other on the right and lift the noodles several times). Yellow pickled radish always comes as a side dish.

2. Jjam-ppong (짬뽕)

Jjamppong is also a noodle dish, but it’s a spicy soup with lots of seafood. The picture above might look weird to some of you. Koreans, however, think that it is awesome because they give you one whole small octopus, which gives you the impression of generosity and plenty-ness.

The spiciness level depends on the restaurant and you can usually ask for less or more spicy ones. It doesn’t have a proper way to eat it. You can eat noodles first, soup first, or seafood first. It’s totally up to you. I like to eat seafood first and then noodles.

3. Tang-su-yuk (탕수육)

Tangsuyuk is my favorite! It’s fried pork with sweet and sour sauce. Ah, I am craving for this now. Unlike the first two dishes above, you share this with others. For example, each of two people will order Jjajangmyeon or Jjambbong and one Tangsuyuk to share.

It is the best when you eat the meat with other vegetables like onions, mushrooms, and carrots. (It is just me, though. It could depend on your preferences.) The good, delicious Tangsuyuk is made with tender meat and softly fry. If it is over-fried, it will get hard.

Price: 13,000 KRW for the small one (depends on the size)

Address: 경기도 화성시 향남읍 행정죽전로1길 22-6 (22-6, Haengjeongjukjeon-ro 1-gil, Hyangnam-eup, Hwaseong-si, Gyeonggi-do, Korea); You can find many in any city.

4. Gochu-Japchae (고추잡채)

Korean Chinese food 7

Gochu-Japchae is stir-fried pork and cut vegetables like green and red bell peppers, mushrooms, and onions with chili oil. It’s only a little spicy even though it looks more spicy. I just love how all these ingredients go along well and dance in my mouth :) Yeah, I like the texture of this.

It comes with white bread called Kkot-ppang (꽃빵) which doesn’t really have a taste. Since Gochu-Japchae is salty, it tastes good when eating it with tasteless Kkotppang. You also share this with others.

Price: 25,000 KRW for small size

5. Kkan-pung-gi (깐풍기)/ Kkan-pung saewoo (깐풍새우)

Kkanpunggi is spicy garlic fried chicken but what I tried was Kkanpung Saewoo (깐풍새우; spicy garlic fried shrimps). The sauce is the same but just the ingredients are different. It is spicy, sweet, and sour at the same time. The garlic doesn’t taste strong, but it’s enjoyable.

Even though the shrimp are fried, it is not crispy because of the sauce that coats it. It is more soft. It tastes like sweet and sour chicken in Panda Express in America. So delicious!

Price: 21,000 KRW

Address: 경기도 화성시 향남읍 행정죽전로1길 22-6 (22-6, Haengjeongjukjeon-ro 1-gil, Hyangnam-eup, Hwaseong-si, Gyeonggi-do, Korea); You can find many in any city.
