We went out for lunch with the family to Baik Mi Korean restaurant because we had heard they had jajang myun on sale. We don’t go out to eat very often, mostly because I like to cook and as the kids get bigger, they can eat a lot. When we do go out for Korean food, we always order jajang myun (it’s one dish I don’t make at home). In this Korean style chinese dish, vegetables and meat are fried up in a black bean sauce and served over long noodles.
My yobo has fond memories associated with jajang myun. On his birthday, his mom would take him out for and they would order jajang myun and tang su yuk, sweet and sour pork.
The restaurant opened in the fall of 2012 and this was our first visit. It is beautifully decorated with traditional Korean artifacts and the walls have old Korean writing on them. Above the kitchen area is made to resemble a traditional Korean house. The kids really enjoyed looking around as we waited for our food.
The jajang myun was delicious. The sauce had lots of flavour and the noodles were a nice texture. The service was quick and as custom, several side dishes were served with the meal: kimchi (of course), pickled radish and raw onion with a dipping sauce. We ordered a bowl of noodles for each of us and had leftovers to make with rice the next day.
Good taste and good value!
