Jjajangmyeon sauce, which is stir-fried with high heat with vegetables in the black soybean paste called “chunjang” , makes one’s mouth water by itself. 

To Koreans, jjajangmyeon is a national food that everyone enjoys eating, and simply serves meals.

Since the opening of the port of Incheon more than 130 years ago, the Sunlin-dong area has been designated as an extraterritorial area.

Chinese style of architecture was built. The Chinatown was formed, with Chinese merchants gathering one by one. 

At that time, ethnic Chinese from Shandong opened a Chinese cooking store in Sunlin-dong. 

They developed a food that suits the taste of Koreans, and at the end of their efforts, jjajangmyeon was made.

The main food of Chinatown is also jjajangmyeon.
