So you love Korean Chinese food - i.e., the food that Chinese immigrants brought to Korea, like jjajangmyeon? Well, I’m going to burst your bubble now and tell you that Kyodong Noodle’s jjajangmyeon is not the holy grail you seek. What is to love is the jjamppong, a spicy seafood stew with noodles, and the ulppong, its mild, brothy cousin. Skip the sweet-and-sour tangsuyuk, which is sweeter than it should be, in favor of the kkanpoong chicken, which is more balanced. It’s also fun wandering the Hmart that this food court is in, picking up random ramen bundles and Korean mu radish for kimchi, but take your time and savor your noodles first before they bloat.
