Revisit to Mandarin House

I took out Grandfather again to Mandarin House. The man loves his jjajjangmyun. Read the previous post here. I decided to stray away from the usual and order the seafood udon. I think this was around 9 bucks.

Like their jjajjangmyun, it came in a big bowl that could serve two people. The noodles were fresh and chewy and were the same ones used for their jjajjangmyun. The broth however was weak. A watered down beef broth that could have used a lot more flavoring. Lots of pieces of squid, octopus, krab, a couple of shrimp, along with squash, onions, carrots, and topped w/ an egg.

A picture of their noodles, which I believe they make themselves. If you look towards the back, there is a window in which you can see a table w/ a big bag of flour and some other things that I cannot remember right now that made me reach that conclusion. The noodles were good, but I cared more about the broth, which was no bueno. I've noticed the same thing w/ their jjamppong. The broth has no flavor to's just really oily. So next time, I'll probably just stick with the jjajjang.

Service was same ol. No complaints. We had to wait about 10 minutes to get seated on a Saturday afternoon.

I'm pooped. 4 posts in a row. It's been a while since I've done that. Back to chemistry.

Ooh does that look tasty! I hate when the noodles are yummy but the broth is only ok.

As for the tuna casserole, it still makes for good leftovers! It's best if you nuke it for a little bit, but is fine served at room temp. Hope you like it!
