Jjangppong is one of two popular Korean-Chinese dishes, the other being Jjangmyeon which is a broth free dish of noodles with black bean sauce. Wikipedia has this to say about Jjangppong:
Jjamppong (Korean: 짬뽕, Chinese name: 炒碼麵), a spicy noodle soup flavoured with onions and chili oil. A form of jjamppong is also the local Chinese speciality in the Japanese port city of Nagasaki (see Chanpon). The noodles are made from wheat flour.
Instant Jjamppong usually has a rich seafood broth and pictures on the front of the package showing the noodle soup accompanies by assorted seafood. Let’s have a look at Lucky Me! special Jjamppong!
Here’s the back of the package (click image to enlarge). Contains fish. To prepare, add contents of package and sachets into a large bowl. Add 400ml boiling water to bowl and cover for 3 minutes. Stir and enjoy!
A round noodle block.
The soup base sachet.
Has a nice spicy seafood scent.
A solid ingredient sachet.
Looks to be mostly small bits of seafood.
Finished (click image to enlarge). Added octopus, mussels, clams, shrimp, squid, green onion and sweet onion. The noodles are thin and have a nice lightness to them – much like one would find in a cup noodle but a little different. The broth has a very good spiciness and seafood flavor which I would expect in a jjamppong instant and works well. The solid ingredients hydrated well and were of excellent quality. 4.5 out of 5.0 stars. EAN bar code 4807770273100.
