Jinju, South KoreaApologies for the delayed post guys. I was, in fact, bedridden for days for some reason and couldn’t move well my body. No worries because I feel so much better now and finally can publish this short entry.
Let me take a break on my South Korea travels and share with you this popular and most visited cold noodle house in Jinju. I heard a lot of positive reviews about this old family recipe of naengmyeon. I found out by searching the internet, that this has been around for 70 years already. Just imagine, for seven decades, people are still coming back for it. It was pass through time and run by same blood in a different generation. Many have attempted to buy the rights, but they refused because as they said, it’s an exclusive family business and the secret recipe shouldn’t be revealed except for the chosen successor. Up to this day, the four siblings from this generation are in charge of running the business respectively.

Not a single doubt why people keep patronizing this cold noodle from Jinju. I’ve tried a lot of naengmyeon in a various restaurant, but this one has a different taste among all others. The broth was prepared for long hours and ingredients were benevolently served. This specialty restaurant has been featured before on a famous food program in South Korea and I’ve seen that particular episode. Countless of customers were seen coming inside, a sure sign of a tasty dish and approved by many.
