Young King serves fantastic Korean-style Chinese food, and there are a couple classics here that you absolutely have to order: the cha chiang mein, which are noodles in a caramelized black bean sauce, and the tangsuyuk - crispy fried pork with sweet and sour sauce on the side. The black bean noodles are sweet, salty, and spicy all at once, and the pork - even though it’s breaded and fried - is somehow also super light. On weekends, it’ll be filled with families eating dinner, so you might have to wait a bit, but you can walk right in on weekdays.
