Some people dread swimsuit shopping. Others consider the process of finding jeans that fit as enjoyable as a colonoscopy. For me, I've never not ended a session of eyeglasses shopping without choking back rage tears at the optometrist's.

Michelle Won | Posted 06.08.2016 | Taste
Michelle Won

In an effort to make up for some small fraction of recent diet of eating like a recently released convict, I decided to make one of my favorite Korean dishes, but without any guilt. Jjajangmyeon is a black bean sauce noodle that is salty and savory. It's usually made with pork belly and hand-pulled, hand-cut noodles. Sure, if you can afford the calories, go get the real thing.

Outside of North Korea, it's next to impossible to try a sampling of Pyongyang's culinary classics, unless you're in Vietnam of course. Vietnam has everything these days.
