Jjiajiang myun (ì§œìž¥ë©´) is a Korean noodle dish featuring a sweet black bean sauce, originally brought over from China but tweaked for the Korean palette. The sour yellow side dish, called dan mu ji (ë‹¨ë¬´ì§€), is made from pickled radish perfectly complements the taste of jjiajiang myun. Anyone else drooling besides me?
On a personal note, years of my mother's torture teaching me how to read and write the Korean alphabet (hangul - í•œê¸€) finally pays off. However, I do remain functionally illiterate. When I read, I can make out the sounds but rarely understand the meaning of the words... whoa is me.
