Jjampong is a Chinese restaurant. Specializes in Korean-style Chinese cuisine – in particular the eponymous jjambbong, which comes in two varieties: seafood and beef brisket (chadol).
The Chadol Jjamppong was phenomenal. The broth was luxuriously thick and velvety, like it had been simmering all day, explosive with rich, charred beef flavor from the grilled brisket. The meat, piled on high as a garnish, packed the punch of a main dish in itself. Fresh bean sprouts provided a refreshing counterpoint. Chewy flour noodles. Very well-conceived, perfectly executed dish. One of the best jjambbong’s of my life.
