A taste of Jeju Island
[Jeju Island] Jeju Pork Noodles
A trip to Jeju Island is not complete without a bowl of Jeju Pork Noodles! It's a traditional soup that has been around for more than a century on the island. Surprisingly, these noodles are hard to find outside of the island - even in Seoul. That's why many locals crave it and go straight for a bowl when they arrive on the island.
So what does it taste like? The closest comparison is Japanese Pork Ramen. But the broth is less fatty and clearer in color - almost a light milky color. It's topped with several cuts of thinly sliced pork and garnished with sliced green onions, laver flakes and a dash of Korean chili flakes.
Today, we bring these delicious Jeju noodles to your home. The key flavor variable is of course, the broth. And we think this producer has nailed it! Their broth marinade packets is made using Jeju bone broth. It creates a deep, savory and bold flavor - without being oily or tasting too heavy. A well-balanced flavor.
Keep this noodle box in your cabinet - and break it open during a cold, hungry night!
Please note: The noodle box does not come with any fresh toppings. However, we do highly recommend buying green onions and thinly sliced pork (store-bought chashu will work just fine). It brings the noodles to the next level!
I served my family the Jeju Pork Noodles twice and both times they were amazed at how it was restaurant quality! The broth is rich and porky but not as heavy as Japanese tonkatsu broth. I followed the instructions and added the broth while the noodles were boiling. The noodles were light and retained a little chewiness- perfect! I will purchase this again.
