Jeong’s Jjajang Menu
They have a menu that is pretty simple with favourites like Jjajangmyeon (from $6.50) and Jjampong (from $8.50). If you are looking for something to share, consider the Kimchi or Seafood Pancake ($8) and Korean Fried Chicken ($12 for half chicken)!
Plus, they served up soul-warming Soondubu Soup ($8) and Kimchi Stew ($8), great for rainy weather in Singapore.
The Jjajangmyeon ($7.50 for Medium) is our recommendation and deserves its place as the namesake. It boasted an aromatic onion flavour with visible chunks of meat in its sauce, which had an appetising sheen! This highlighted the uniquely savoury black bean flavour, which made it quite satisfying.
The noodles had a great springy texture, which was the perfect vessel to capture the sauce! Despite the savoury sauce, we found it easy to finish the whole bowl without being overwhelmed.
We liked that they served the sweet and sour sauce separately from the Tangsuyuk ($12) to maintain its crunchiness. With its thick consistency and hint of lemon, it paired well with the fried meat pieces!
The Tangsuyuk here was coated in a batter that’s just right in thickness, and the meat seemed to be seasoned beforehand. There was also a mix of fatty and lean meat, providing a nice textural contrast.
With a mild spicy kick, the Jjamppong ($9.50) had a distinctive “wokhei” seafood flavour that stood out to us, though the broth could be a tad bit more “gao”.
The bowl didn’t skimp on ingredients either, with mushrooms, prawns and squids!
Jjamppong Rice ($8.50) is an alternative option if you are in the mood for rice.
For those seeking the flavours of Jjamppong but without the heat, Baekjjamppong ($9.50) is a non-spicy rendition of it.
The broth is on the sweeter side and still had the same smokey flavours!
