Cold noodles, where are you?
It's hot as heck in LA today and that puts Korean cold noodles on my mind.
A couple of years ago, I was taken to a cold noodle restaurant on Alexandria in a strip mall in K-town. The soups there had shaved ice in them and came with cups of hot beef stock. Yum yum yum. I've tried looking for it but haven't been able to find it.
Can anyone help me? Or has it closed? (I really hope not!)
Oddly enough, the ones I like best are from places that don't really specialise in them -- Park's BBQ and Shik Do Rak.
my new favorite cold noodle (nengmyun) place is chil bo myun ok on 6th and kingsley. sooooo tasty especially with mustard. the soup is super icy, more like a slushy than anything else. lots of radish and pear. the dduk kalbi is really yummy too. good combo. can't believe i went this long without eating there before. they also serve yooksoo, the cups of hot beef stock. i'm not a fan of that.
corner place is good when i'm craving it, but it's just not icy enough to hit the spot when it's blazing hot outside.
u-chun is good too, but gives me MSG coma/headache afterward. and i can make that beef cold broth + spicy sweet sauce thing at home. however those wang mandoos, i cannot.
