kalguksu in chicago area?

doughnut May 2, 2009 02:17 PM

in about a month we will be going to chicago for a day or two and i am also dying to have some kalguksu (in addition to sundubu).

are there any kalguksu restaurants anywhere in the greater chicago area? i ran a search and came up with nothing, but part of the problem might be spelling...

thanks so much in advance!

    For the benefit of anyone who, like me, was not familiar with this term before seeing this topic, Wikipedia notes that "Kalguksu (literally "knife noodles") is a Korean noodle dish consisting of handmade, knife-cut wheat flour noodles served in a large bowl with broth and other ingredients", as noted at http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Kalguksu

    Metromix lists 60 restaurants serving Korean cuisine in the Chicago area; maybe one of them has it, or can prepare it with an advance request. http://chicago.metromix.com/facets/re...
