Last weekend AnakJajan had a very pleasant meal at recently opened Jjang Korean Noodle and Grill at Wolter Monginsidi South Jakarta near Senopati-Gunawarman area.
Jjang serves various authentic Korean noodle along with other Korean signature dishes with affordable price. All of the menu here contain no pork and no lard which is a great news for our Moslem friends. Even though it contains no pork and no lard, you don’t need to worry because it doesn’t make the food here less palatable, let’s take a look on their menu.
Jjajangmyeon IDR 49k
Jjajangmyeon is a Korean noodle serves with black bean sauce. Although this dish is popular, it is very hard to find Korean restaurant that serves it in Jakarta.
AnakJajan often get questions from our readers regarding this dish asking where they can find Jjajangmyeon and also where they can get halal version of Jjajangmyeon. Well AnakJajan now have the answer, it is Jjang Korean Noodle & Grill. The black bean sauce was cooked with beef and seafood, it tasted savory and very rich, while the noodle itself was homemade by order that’s why it took longer for them to process this menu.
Gamjya Salad IDR 20k
Homemade potato salad, they only prepare 20 portions every day and this menu should not be missed when you are here. The potato salad was very smooth, seasoned well and tasted sweet naturally. Me likey!
Bibimbab IDR 55k
Rice with mixed vegetable and beef serves on top of hot stone bowl. AnakJajan found ourselves cannot stop digging this bowl of rice because it was so good, every components just complete each other very flavorful especially the nicely marinated tender US beef. No wonder Bibimbap is one of their best selling menu here. Messy messy good!
Subak (watermelon) Soju IDR 179k, Yoghurt Soju IDR 179k
Both soju were refreshing, tasty and definitely strong. Our personal favorite would be the Yoghurt Soju.
Budae Jiggae IDR 149k
Budae Jiggae here is pretty awesome and affordable, just look at the huge portion, it can serve 2 until 4 persons. It is a noodle stew with beef stock, Korean chili sauce, vegetables, tteok (Korean rice cake) and various sausages and they directly boil it in front of customer. The broth was hearty and comforting, I love the tteok texture inside the stew, it was springy and not mushy.
Pha Jeon IDR 49k
Korean pancake with generous amount of beef and seafood. Taste the best when you dip it into the tangy sauce.
Dak Kang Jhong IDR 49k
Juicy deep fried battered chicken coated with sweet and sour sauce.
Buk Kal Bi IDR 225k
Grilled marinated short ribs served with vegetable, samjang sauce and kimchi. The US beef short ribs was nicely marinated with sweet savory seasoning. It was no joke, very flavorful, juicy yet tender!
Overall food at Jjang were satisfying and also affordable. AnakJajan could see ourselves visiting this place repeatedly in the future. Let’s Jajan!!
