Black Bean Sauce Noodles with Seafood
at Jackie’s Kitchen (Coex Mall)
-Samseong, Gangnam, Seoul, Republic of Korea-
Jackie’s Kitchen is a Chinese restaurant. Specializes in dim sum and noodles, Cantoneseish. One of the only places in Seoul to get non-Koreanized Chinese food, even if it’s just fast-food quality and overpriced, courtesy of Jackie Chan.
This noodle dish with black bean sauce, more of an oyster sauce with a few black beans thrown in, was okay. Not really worth 11,000 won, but I can’t think of another restaurant in the city that offers something similar.
By complete coincidence, my kid and I ended up watching Kung Fu Panda 2 right after dinner. In the movie, the panda’s father runs a noodle shop. And Jackie Chan voices one of the characters.
