I Can't Stay but I Don't Want to Leave

I'll be moving soon, and this fills me with some conflicting emotions. On the one hand, my current place is a sort of glorified dorm room, with no kitchen to speak of and barely enough space to do, well, anything. On the other hand, my landlords are some of the sweetest people I've ever met. It's not unlike renting an apartment from your friend's grandparents.

Chinese Food in Korea

America has it's own special brand of Chinese food (who the hell is General Tso, that's what I want to know), Mexican food (Chipotle I'm looking at you), and basically every other interesting ethnic food. Korea is pretty similar, with it's own versions of things such as pizza and hamburgers, but what I want to talk about today is, as the title probably warned you, Chinese food in Korea.



Eats and Treats in Incheon's Chinatown


Incheon Station is located at the very end of Line 1 of the Seoul Metropolitan Subway.  Because of its location, the writers of "Korea Top 10" on Arirang TV thought the city, specifically Chinatown, an ideal destination to be included on "Railroads", an episode I am filming with them now.  I had visited Chinatown last year and was immediately smitten with the atmosphere of the beautifully maintained neighborhood, so  I was looking forward to returning with Arirang to see even more of it.  This time, I was better prepared, bringing along with me an empty stomach and a big appetite.


Chinese food in South Korea

I have travelled to many countries and always liked the Chinese food and Indian food. Though basic Indian food is generally the same and authentic, but I have also found out that Chinese food is absolutely different in different countries. The Chinese food I ate in Germany was not available in USA or the Chinese food I ate in Hong Kong, Japan or South Korea was different. Even I travelled to China there were 100's of dishes in each restuarant, which were different from the chinese food served in Europe or anywhere. Even South Korea and China are very near but the chinese food is different. Its surprising! In Korea the Chinese food comprimises of : 1. Black soya noodles, jjajangmyeon; 자장면; 짜장면, are made up of pork and sea food. Its very popular in South Korea.It consists of wheat noodles topped with a thick sauce made of chunjang (a salty black soybean paste), diced meat and vegetables, and sometimes also seafood.

Crave Alert: Jajangmyeon!
