Udong is a Korean-Chinese dish.  Flour noodles in a mild broth, onions and other basic aromatics, often various seafood.  Essentially jjambbong, but not spicy.  A staple within the Koreanized Chinese fastfood tradition.  Although it’s still always on the menu, the dish seems to have fallen out of favor in recent years; I can’t remember the last time that I saw anyone other than me, in a restaurant or at home, order one. I still do, whenever I crave broth, because I’m not too good with red heat.  The name perhaps owes its origins to some terribly botched though ultimately tasty attempt at recreating the ubiquitous Japanese noodle soup udon.

Toayen is a neighborhood Korean-Chinese delivery joint.  The food isn’t very good, but it’s the best of the worst in Oksu.

The udong was kinda crappy.
