Building on the restaurant’s basic dish (see 10.281 Jikhwa Jjamppong), the Emperor Jjamppong is a deluxe version with a whole octopus, two whole shrimp, scallop on the half-shell, and loads of mussels. The seafood looked impressive, but surprisingly didn’t contribute much to the flavor of the dish – perhaps because the bits are frozen. More of a hassle to pause and cut up the octopus, peel the shrimp, and fish out the mussels.
The photo doesn’t show scale, but the bowl is double in size of the other bowls.
About a third of the volume is comprised by the mussels, which nobody touched.
