Champong - Spicy Seafood Noodle -짬뽕  

Cham-pong
Spicy Seafood Noodle
짬뽕

 

Champong is a popular noodle dish that is prepared in a red, spicy seafood broth containing hearty vegetables and variety of seafood.  This dish presumably has its origins in Japan with influence from China and is known to be very popular at various restaurants or even at homes.  Instant noodle versions are also popular which can be prepared within minutes.

However, to enjoy this authentic dish, many Koreans go to Korean/Chinese restaurants where noodles are mixed in with real seafood such as squids, shrimps, clams and scallions.  Fresh vegetables such as onions, red peppers, green onions as well as many others are included in this dish to compliment the spiciness of the base soup.  Champong is considered to be mild to high in spiciness so expect to sweat while consuming this dish.

Instant packages of champong can be purchased at Korean supermarkets or even at local delicatessen. To see all brands of instant noodles, click here.
