Ddanddan Myeon is a Chinese dish.  Described on the menu as “soup noodles with dried shrimp & peanut in spicy sauce.”

Without ever having seen it elsewhere nor heard of anything like it, and not really in the mood to do any research on it, all I can provide here is a description of what was in the bowl.  Flour noodles, standard for all Chinese restaurants throughout Korea.  The broth, somewhere between a thick soup and a thin sauce in texture, had a distinct peanut flavor, bright red though surprisingly not very spicy. Topped with dried shrimp, crushed peanuts, minced scallions, and blanched bokchoy.  Overall, it was as weird as the description would suggest.  And totally overpriced at 14,000 won.
