Authentic Korean soup time!
This recommendation is courtesy of a fellow food expert and good friend of YouAteMySteak. She took me out to rediscover some great Korean food in the Bay Area. The portions at this place are the biggest I’ve ever seen, so be sure to bring your appetite! The service is really good too. Our waitress pointed out to my friend that she was with “a very handsome young man!” lol

Nengmyun is made mainly from buckwheat noodles. The broth is usually made from a beef broth. Depending on the recipe, it will have slices of radish, cucumber, a boiled egg, and other ingredients for seasoning. Seoul Gomtang seems to add in slices of asian pear as well (which after having it served this way, I now feel is mandatory for a good nenmgyun) There’s different kinds of nengmyun (or Naengmyeon), but for this post, we’ll cover Mul Nengmyun because that’s what we had this time (and it’s my favorite kind).
