Edison Noodle House (report) - Ja-Jang Myun

ultbil | Mar 10, 2003 10:13 AM

We found ourselves in Edison and got a recommendation to head to the Edison Noodle House (Shop Rite shopping center, junction on Route 1 and Old Post Road).

It's a Ja-Jang Myun house. Ja-Jang Myun is a noodle dish with a black bean sauce with pork and onion, you can also get other things thrown in (seafood, various meats). I got the seafood Ja-Jang Myun and she got the regular Ja-Jang Myun. Both were good, the regular was better.

We also got dumplings. They were small but there were a ton of them and they were very tasty.

The menu is large with many of the usual Korean dishes - kalbi, bulgogi, stews, soups. I was told that in Korea all Ja-Jang Myun places serve a sweet and sour pork dish - that was served here as well (we'll get that next time).

The great thing about this place is that the noodles are made fresh, right in front of your eyes...well, actually on a TV screen where you can see the chef making them. We thought it was just a VCR tape at first but when he throws and smacks the large noodle mass onto the counter you can hear the "bang" coming from the kitchen.
