Today’s lunch was eaten at New Chinese Restaurant, a very high profile lunch spot that has great atmosphere and delicious Jjajangmyeong.
I don’t particularly like Chinese food in South Korea, mostly because it’s… all…. jjajangmyeong.
My main course was Seyu Bokkeum, or Shrimp Fried Rice. This is my Korean-Chinese food go-to meal. I love shrimp and fried rice, but today I found the flavor to be lacking.
I really enjoyed the soup (jjamppong) and the appetizer (tangsuyook)! Jjamppong is so spicy and has loads of flavor from onions and seafood. Sometimes it’s just too spicy and I can’t eat it, but I really loved today’s version.
Tangsuyook is very much like American Sweet and Sour Pork, but the sauce is very sweet and has bits of pineapple and seaweed in it! I really love it, so much so that the teachers boxed up the extras and gave them to me to take home! ^^
I give this lunch a 4맛/5. Delicious (mostly), pretty healthy, and well served. Thank you, school, for allowing me to eat spicy soup to my heart’s content and take home a bowl of tangsuyook!
