Korean Jajangmyun near Times Square?

Anyone know of a place to get great Korean JaJangmyun near Times Square?I'm craving it desperately. Otherwise, can you recommend a good Asian restaurant in that area? I'll be going into NYC later this week. Thanks for any recommendations!

  1. You should simply walk down about 10 blocks to Korea town on 32nd b/w broadway and fifth ave. Step into any one of those korean restaurants and you can order it on the menu. Jajangmyun is a dish typically found on most korean menus. Try Kun Jip, Gum Gang San or Won Jo to suggest a few

      Thanks for the suggestions. I will try them out.

        you don't even have to go as far as 10 blocks, walk 7 blocks down to 35th street and walk to Hyo Dong Gak (51 West 35th, just east of 6th avenue); they've got a great JJM in various incarnations as well as nice mandoogui and all the classics, jjampong, etc.

          Thanks! I haven't tried Hyo Dong Gak but it's on my list for my next trip into the city.

            Second Hyo Dong Gak. Also I have to say that you cannot get this dish in every Korean restaurant. It's not a Korean dish but a Korean-Chinese (or Chinese-Korean according to my Chinese husband) one. There's another Korean-Chinese restaurant on 32nd Street called Shanghai Mong, but Hyo Dong Gak's better.
