My never ending quest to find some delicious black bean noodles. You know the ones. If you ever watch a Korean drama, there inevitably will be a black bean noodle eating scene. Usually in anger and usually resulting in black bean sauce all over their lips. It’s pretty funny and they make it look SO delicious. There are a few places here in Hawaii but I haven’t had anything that really blew my socks off. Well the one I am sharing is probably the closest to my favorite served in Hawaii so far – which is pretty darn good for take-out. I got it from Palama Supermarket on North King Street!
Here’s the black bean sauce ready to be mixed into the noodles. When I picked it up, the lady at the counter told me that the noodles are cold and that the sauce isn’t fully hot on purpose. She said if I preferred it to be hotter in temperature that I could heat it up at home. Not something a lazy person wants to hear when taking out food…so I didn’t heat it further when I got home. I mixed it up and ate it. It was perfect to me. I don’t like my food piping hot so I liked it a lot. The sauce looks heavy but the one they serve is definitely one of the lighter ones I’ve had. I enjoyed it a lot!
They give a lot of daikon! Daikon is THE side dish for these noodles. I wish we had Korean food delivery here in Hawaii like in Korea. They deliver everything and give you actual dishes. When you’re done, you just leave the dirty dishes outside of your door for pick-up. I want to move to Korea…lol.
