Korean noodles in the Peninsula or South Bay?

My very pregnant friend is having a craving for Korean noodles. She didn't know what they were called, but said they were soupy, like pho or ramen. And spicy.
I don't know much about Korean food, my foodie friends were no help, and I don't know any Koreans to ask (the friend in question is Vietnamese).
Does anybody know what she's referring to, and ideally know a place in the South bay or Peninsula that serves these? Thanks so much!
For a great food-related animated TV series, check out Samauri Champloo, Champloo being the same dish. Taken to mean "mashup" in this context. Food plays a prominent role in the plots.
Anyway. The only Korean north of Sunnyvale of any note is So Gong Dong on ECR in PA. However, the quality is only OK, and the menu is short. I've never had any of those kinds of noodles there. If there's a menu pages entry, you might be able to figure out if they serve it.
Sunnyvale and south, you get a lot of BBQ places, like Palace BBQ.
There's a reputable thread on Soon Dobu, and likely places that serve that well serve noodles well. (although the top-ranked place in the thread is notated as closed.)
