  1. I like this brand that doesn't have an English name on the jar. In Korean characters, it says "Tong Ah Wae Mat" (it's really a bad translation) and says "ko chu jang" in korean characters below it with "chap sal" to the left of that. I like it because it's gluten-free -- something that's pretty difficult to find. The ingredients that the label list is minimal, but I don't think it's accurate, especially as there's no sweetener listed but it is definitely sweet.

    1. My wife says that "sunchang" is the best type/brand?

      1. I buy whatever is on sale :)
