Yeolmu naengmyun at Buk Kyung

Buk Kyung in Union Sq. now has yeolmu naengmyun - cold noodles with green leafy summer radish kimchi. A summertime favorite in Korea. The dishes are posted up on the wall in Korean. You can get the usual 2 diff types of naengmyun, both with the kimchi: the regular one with soup and the spicy bibim kind without soup. I tried the bibim naengmyun for lunch. Good flavor, nice amount of kimchi, comes with some ice cold broth for cooling down. Bit small in portion but I find it's hard to eat too much naengmyun in one sitting.

  1. Thanks for the heads up! My Korean is so poor, I hesitate to even call it rudimentary, but -is the bibim naengmyun the one that's listed on the bottom of the sign? Just so's I can point to it when ordering & not risk butchering the words :-)

      Yes that's the one.
      The sign says:
      Yeoreum Byeolmi (Summertime Specials)
      Yeolmu Naengmyun
      Yeolmu Bibimnaengmyun

    2. Thanks for the tip. I finally tried it. It's now on the menu (no wall signs) as "yulmoo naengmyun" and I got the bibim version which come with a bowl of cold soup. Makes a change from "regular" naengmyun and just as welcome on a sweltering day.
