The soup is so thick with red chili that it is opaque. It is also quite glossy, which is a result of the perfect melding of the chili and oil. According to Jenny, this is key to making a good jjambong. One serving is MASSIVE. I would definitely recommend sharing one bowl between two people. At $7.95 for one bowl, that's definitely value for money, don't you think? They didn't skimp on the ingredients. The soup was laden with noodles, squid, shrimp, mussels and fish, plus some veggies. It was incredibly spicy—the type that almost hurts, but in a good way. The pickled radish served on the side was a welcome respite from the incessant heat that soup provides. Jenny was in heaven as she dug into her bowl. The jjambong received five stars from the Korean foodie. I quite liked it but my stomach can only probably stand the abuse every so often, so I wouldn't eat this on a regular basis.
The kkangpoongi, however, is another story. These are battered pieces of chicken fried to a crisp and then coated in a sweet and spicy sauce. It's like General Tso's chicken with a massive kick. I could totally hunker down with a plate of this and some steaming white rice. MMMMM.
