Gul Jjambbong is a Korean-Chinese dish. Noodle soup with oysters. Despite the reference to jjambbong, which is spicy, the dish is mild, more of an udong, with the broth rendered dense and cloudy from the oysters. Typically available only during the winter, when oysters are in season.
Previously, I was indifferent to the dish, but I’ve suddenly come to appreciate it in light of my newfound appreciation for oysters.
