If you are a fan of Korean spicy cold noodles, you will love this Jjolmyeon (쫄면) recipe!
is a cold noodle dish of chewy noodles in a sweet and tangy gochujang sauce. The word “jjolmyeon” actually means chewy noodles, but it also refers to the dish made with them.
In Korea, jjolmyeon is a common menu item of restaurants that sell street food and light meals such as gimbap (김밥), tteokbokki (떡볶이), ramen (라면), etc. It's especially popular amongst teens and young adults. Those relatively cheap street food/light meals are called boonsik, and boonsik restaurants are called boonsikjip (분식집), which we all frequented growing up.
