Who doesn’t like noodle..Most of us Asian people love it, in any kind of-their beautifully crafted way. Legend of Noodles is a Korean noodle and seafood joint, always crowded and busy no matter what time I pass by. To tell you the truth I’ve had my share of K-noodles, but not a lot. So I’m really curious to try their version. The restaurant has a typically Korean restaurant look, simple tables and some decorations on the walls. Their aquarium display at the front caught my attention. That means they took-fresh seafood-seriously. The place looks small but don’t let them fool you. There are actually two stories and more seating areas up stairs.
First of all, this is what I love about Korean food, their Banchan/side dishes. Although they only gave 3 kinds here: Kimchi (OMG-tasty! Could be one of the best Kimchi in the area), Danmuji (Pickled Daikon radish) and Onion with Black bean paste on the side; all of them were exceptionally good, I couldn’t get enough.
Among the many dishes that they offer, these are their signature ones, the portion is quite huge for the regular Indonesian-Chinese noodles, in fact it’s like 3 times the amount.
Jajang Myeon (IDR 55.000): Steamed noodles served in lightly flavored Black Bean paste and pork meat. This is one of Korean most famous dish and I’ve always wanted to try this black noodle. The noodle was soft, the sauce was thick, salty with lovely crunch from the onions and juicy pork cubes. Perfectly seasoned. I think I’m addicted!
Haemul Jjampong (IDR 80.000): Spicy seafood noodle with vegetables and chili powder. This is such a gorgeous looking dish. The amount of seafood was electrifying: many types of clams, scallops, shrimps, squid, crab, baby octopus. The noodle was light and soft. The soup might not be bold enough for our Indonesian tastebuds, but it’s pretty good. It’s savory,spicy and has that wonderful seafood fragrant.
Omurice (IDR 60.000): Fried rice wrapped with Omelette and topped with sweet and sour sauce. This is a good dish for younger eaters who prefer simpler food. The fried rice was tasty and in big portion too.
Gochu Seau (IDR 250.000): Stir-fried breaded shrimp with hot and spicy flavor. This dish is very similar to Chinese food. The prawns were fresh and tasty, topped with sweet and sour sauce and chopped vegetables and chili.
Legend of Noodles sounded like a Kungfu movie title for me and ironically-the food gave me an extra kick that I needed. Love the whole experience with this restaurant and I will come back more for another tasty delicious noodle.
