Though perfectly satisfied with the jjol myeon product that I usually use (see most recently 4.059 Jjol Myeon (with recipe)), I tried out some alternatives for the sake of comparison. The noodles, made by the food company Songwha, which I’ve never heard of but figured must be reputable if stocked by E-Mart, were pretty good, about as good as the Pulmuone noodles. The sauce, a seasoned gochujang from E-Mart’s own proprietary brand, was also okay, though a bit on the spicy side; I added some additional sesame oil and sugar. I’m going back to the Pulmouone.
