  • Jjajangmyeon

Jjajangmyeon is a Chinese dish given a twist in the Korean way, hence its Korean cuisine which people absolutely adore.

It’s always good to go for it when your pocket is not so heavy. One quirky fact about it is that singles in Korea eat Jjajangmyeon on Black Day also known as Single’s Day, falls on April 14.

The black color is produced by salty black soybean paste, along with handmade wheat noodles and raw cucumbers, veggies, and diced pork gives the food a dark feel.

These make it edible, especially on Black day.
