Hi, so I recently went adventuring in my local Asian Grocery Store, and I looked in one of the freezers, and found noodles that were in the same display as these.. Like how it is twisted up and stuff. But, if I remember correctly, it says 소면 on the package.
I wish I could look at the package right now, but I am currently not at home.
I bought them because I figured they were the noodles for 짜장면… And I have the powder for the dish(my store doesn’t carry the paste), and me and my friend want 짜장면.
Do you think that they are the same noodles? I’ll update once I get back home tonight.
If my market runs out of jjajangmyeon noodles, what other type of noodles besides udon would you recommend?!
Use spaghetti noodles if jjajangmyeon noodles are not available. I found it works.
Is it possible to use the instant ramyun udon noodles for jjajangmyun? The ones from an asian mart?
Do jajjang noodles come in dried form also? I’m moving from Korea to Germany and want to stock up on my favorite foods before I move.:)
Yes, they do! :) They come fresh, frozen or dried. Dried are the least tasty, though.
Great! I forgot to rinse them afterwards, i will be making Jjajjangmyun really soon again and will try it. Thanks!
hey question i live in holland too but i can’t find the myun, bean paste and asian radih where di u get it?
I’ve never been there but someone told be they have everything: http://www.shilla-amsterdam.nl/contents/en-uk/d37_Diverse_noodel_soorten.html ^^
What is the best way to cook these noodles, i remember there was LOTS of foam coming up from the pan and they can be very sticky when eating. I use the exact same brand as on the picture.
Boil it in a lot of water for a few minutes and drain and rinse it in cold water so that the noodles will be more chewy and not sticky.
I bought the same brand of noodles but bought the “Korean style noodle vermicelle”. Will that work for jjajangmyun?
I don’t think vermicelli works for this dish, because these two types of noodles are completely different…
you can try udon.
Thou it’s much thicker, but it still works, and it’s delicious…!
On the package picture it says vermicelle… I think you had the right one.
