Jjajangmyeon

Finally the tried the famed jjajangmyeon from Obba Jjajang. Took me a while but I am always repulsed by huge crowds and long waiting times, so I managed to snag a seat by heading there early. Now I know what the hype is over a simple looking bowl of noodles. The flavourful black bean sauce comprised of onions and diced pork. While I was hoping for slightly more meat in the sauce, the onions and other vegetables in the sauce helped to give a good crunch to the noodles. The noodles were chewy and pliant, while the sauce was tangy and on the sweeter side. I aboslutely loved the noodles, and personally thought it was what made the dish so fantastic. While I personally do not like sweet sauces, I thought this was generally quite well-balanced (other than at the end when the black sauce sweetness started to overwhelm). I would definitely come back here to have this again โ€” but I would probably try the spicy flavoured jjajangmyeon just to see if the sweetness is less apparent!

JJM was saucy, flavourful and not too salty. Noods was soft and chewy. One bowl was perfect for 2 to share as jjm can get gelat.

Will be back for their jjm.

Was surprised at how nice this was! Always heard people raving about it so I had to try it for myself. The sauce had this smoky flavour, and was savoury but not too salty. Thereโ€™s a lot of onions and minced meat too. I thought the noodles were fine, rather chewy but I think mukjjaโ€™s noodles + obbaโ€™s sauce would be the best combi

Ordered 2 jjajangmyeons, kimchi jeon, kimchi soup and jjamppong! SO GOOOOOOOOD! They even gave us Yakult drinks as service!

the pancake was crispy and superbly flavourful with generous chunks of fresh seafood (prawns, squid). the jjajangmyeon is the must-order dish with its spot-on black bean sauce and addictively chewy noodles.

the order also came with free side dishes (hard boiled eggs, kimchi, etc), water and a melona ice cream per person.

highly recommend this place if youโ€™re looking for authentic and tasty Korean cuisine (though do be prepared to queue for some time)!!

Came on a Thursday night but still close to a 1hr wait. The food was worth the wait though. Eat the jjajangmyeon while it is hot. The sauce dries up after it cools down. The noodles texture was the chewy type and the black bean sauce tasted authentic. It was my first time trying jjamppong (wanted to try after watching korean drama Record of Youth). For someone with zero spicy tolerance, the spiciness of the jjamppong was bearable (might take a few coughs to get used to it). However, the soup was addictive and you just keep going for more and more spoonfuls. Tasted of seafood and capsicum. The sweet and sour pork (or tangsuyuk) was interesting. The sauce tasted similar to those caifan stalls but the flour coating the pork was a bit chewy? I think it is glutinous rice flour or something like that. Love the lotus roots too. There was free flow hard boiled egg (too full to eat it), plain water for you to drink and one free ice popsicle just before you exit the shop. Worth it for this price and will come back again.

Be prepared to queue even on a weekday. Come at 6pm and expect to wait 15 mins. On Fri/Sat you can probably start queueing from 5:30pm lol. Most Ko-Chi places have the JP+JM+ Tangsuyuk (sweet and sour pork) value set. For 2 pax you will be BEYOND full. 3-pax is about right. This place used to open really late, but now last order is around 10pm~ Top 5 Ko-Chi in Singapore I daresay.

The amount of positive reviews of their ๐‰๐š๐ฃ๐š๐ง๐ ๐ฆ๐ฒ๐ž๐จ๐ง ($๐Ÿ๐Ÿ‘) brought me hereโ€ฆ

The original portion was so large that you should come here with a big appetite ๐Ÿ˜€ The fermented black bean sauce was smooth and sweet, with some diced pork and a lot of onions in it.

Sadly, I didnโ€™t think I enjoyed it that much, especially when some claimed it to be one of the best in Singapore. The sauce was good, but the noodle was too mushy for my liking ๐Ÿ™

I think I need to try a few more jjajangmyeon for comparison! ๐Ÿ˜™

P.S.: Thereโ€™s no reservation, so do come early (~5pm), if not the waiting list is super long even on a weekday evening ๐Ÿ™Œ๐Ÿผ

We upsized this so it was an additional $3 but it was so worth! Portion was super big so we felt like we could do without the upsize ๐Ÿ˜ฑ also this is one of the best jjajangmyeonโ€™s weโ€™ve had so far! The noodles were nice & chewy, with just the right amount of thickness, & the black bean sauce was not too jelat (bc of the onions & chunks of meat) but flavourful at the same time! We went at 11.45am on a Saturday & we only had to wait 5 mins for our table. Highly recommended, egg was really well fried too! ๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿผ
