Finished (click to enlarge). The noodles in this one are different from the standard Samyang Foods ones. they’re thicker and wider. The flavor is really great – a nice and thick jjajang sauce coats everything in its entirety. Despite it being a sauce coming from a dry powder, this stuff is really extremely good. The veggies were excellent as well, however the peas didn’t hydrate extremely well and after all the time they had boiling, I was a bit surprised by this. Nonetheless, an excellent jjangmyun. 4.5 out of 5.0 stars. EAN bar code 8801073113176.
