Spicy soy-sauce chicken (you can order a bone-less option, or less spicy option too) with flat glass noodles, potatoes, cucumbers, onions and carrots in a savoury sauce. The kicker is the toasted rice you get added in during the middle of the meal. The bottom part of the rice soaks up some of the sauce while the top part stays crunchy. The rice is topped with a little bit of fried kimchi, sesame seed leaves and salted seasoned seaweed. One of my favourite meals that I can eat again and over again!
How to eat well: Order the chicken. Then after everyone's had a serving or two, ask for the toasted rice. You order it in portion sizes according to the number of people you have. I would suggest 1 portion of rice less according to the number of people eating. i.e. If you have 4 people, order 3 portions of rice.
How to order the chicken:
소 (Soh = small, 2-3 pple) --> 22 000won
중 (Joong = medium, 3-4 pple --> 29 000won
대 (Deh = large, 4-5 pple) --> 36 000won
How to order the toasted rice (each portion is 3000won):
1 portion = 일인분 (Il In Boon)
2 portions = 이인분 (Ee In Boon)
3 portions = 삼인분 (Sahm In Boon)
4 portions = 사인분 (Sah In Boon) etc...
You just say the number in Korean, with an "In Boon" after!
