Chinese name: 炸醤麺
Japanese name: ジャージャー麺
(jaa jaa men)
Jajang-myun is a Korean-style Chinese food
with black soy paste
(jajang) and noodles (myun).
Jajang-myun was introduced to Korea through trade with the Qing dynasty
of China, and it was offered at a Korean restaurant for the first time in 1905
Ingredients may include but are not limited to: pork, onions, corn starch
, jajang, peas, garlic, noodles about the thickness of udon
, and optionally, hot pepper
. May be topped off with fresh slices of cucumber
and winter radish.
I've seen this dish offered at a Korean restaurant
and a Korean-owned Japanese restaurant
. I've read that it is a common dish in Korean-owned Chinese restaurants.
