Tonight we went to a local restaurant that makes their noodle fresh by hand when you order them. We all had ja ja myung which is a black bean sauce with bits or pork and onions. It is one of my favorite dishes and I first discovered it in Atlanta over 10 years ago. Since then I have eaten ja ja myung in many cites and places, but I can tell you that the noodles made in this shop and the ja ja myung are the best I have ever eaten! They were fantastic!
They gave me permission to make a video of the chef making the noodles and let me tell you it is amazing! I have seen this many times, but was never allowed tomake a video. Click over to the video page and watch "3 Minute Noodles."
First the helper throws a little flour on the table, then a lump of dough is rolled out into a long rope. Through a series of stretching and folding the chef creates noodles of uniform size and shape. Be sure to watch him spin the noodles at the end. Then he holds them up to show you just how many he makes at one time. Amazing!!
