Bokkeum jjambbong is a Korean-Chinese dish. A derivative of jjambbong, only without broth, stir-fried (bokkeum) instead.
While jjambbong is one of my all-time favorite dishes, I am not a fan of the stir-fried version, which is why it has never before been featured on GMTD.
That said, I was very happy with the rendition by Jjampong Janggun. Firm noodles. Well-balanced sauce, not at all greasy. Even better, it came with slices of beef, very nicely seasoned, nicely wok-charred – highly unusual, highly appreciated. I will probably never order the dish again, but wouldn’t mind if I did.
The only drawback would be the surfeit of onions, and bell peppers.
