434. Dong Fang Hong Korean Chinese Restaurant

This restaurant is a popular lunch place among many Koreans or Korean Jjajangmyeon-fans who specially made a trip here for their black bean sauce noodles. It’s probably one of the more popular places known for their jjajangmyeon (짜장면) in Singapore as we spot every table having their signature noodles. However, if you come here with the same expectation of the quality as those you had in Korea, you will probably be greatly disappointed. Considering that I have never tried jjajangmyeon in Korea before, I thought this was pretty decent.

An empty dinner setting

The kimchi was really awesome. I like how that they serve it more spicy than sour here. We were just wiping the kimchi off

Jjajangmyeon (짜장면)

Chewy noodles covered in black bean sauce with minced meat and diced onions. If you had a very good bowl of jjajangmyeon in Korea, you will probably find this pretty bland. Yet I thought the sauce had a good balance to the tasteless noodles. Cut the noodles up and share the portion among your party. It’s probably enough to fit 2

Spicy Seafood Noodles (짬뽕)

The broth is very smooth on the throat and nowhere near spicy. But I thought they could have given more ingredients as the portion of their noodles probably outweigh the former

Fried Chicken in Hot Sauce

Fried chicken fares much better than their sweet & sour pork (which I did not order this time round). At least it tastes like fried chicken and not just fried dough. The sauce tastes sweeter than actually being spicy but overall is still a good dish

Sautéed Shredded Beef with Green Pepper

Probably one that surprises. I like how the beef is sautéed very well with the mushrooms and along with the fragrance of the onions and green pepper, this dish is worth ordering

I think this place probably is being skewed towards a Chinese restaurant than a Korean restaurant. We tried their sweet & sour pork which pretty much felt like eating dough and their fried dumplings just cannot make it as well. I think probably thats why everyone just comes here for their jjajangmyeon which is one of the closest to the Korean’s version you can find in Singapore. Just don’t expect too much 😉
