jjajangmyeon/black-bean sauce noodles (SEA)

I was inspired by the post on the Weekly's Voracious blog today. I loved this dish when I had it in Korea, but haven't located it since, though I've never really searched the menus at many Korean places. Is it on normal Korean menus or would I have to find a Korean/Chinese place? Any recommendations (hopefully not involving a drive to Federal Way)?

    would check out Nora Bistro Chinese in Shoreline (same strip mall as Hae-Nam and a taco bus). They have a whole page of Korean-Chinese cuisine, including jajangmyeon. Not the best version I've had, but definitely better than those at University Teriyaki on the Ave.

      Usually Korean-owned Chinese Restaurants...Not sure if it's on their english menu, but you just have to ask for it...You can order it normal with pork and vegetables, or with seafood and vegetables.

        Yen Ching in Mountlake Terrace is a solid bet for jjajangmyeon and other Korean/Chinese fare. Their samsung champong (spicy seafood noodle soup) is divine, especially in the thick of winter!

        Yen Ching
        23202 57th Ave W
        Mountlake Terrace, WA 98043

        If you're on the eastside, Peking Restaurant is the place to go.
