Jjajangmyeon (black soy bean noodles) is one of Korean's most beloved dishes, known to have originated from Chinatown in Seollin-dong, Jung-gu of Incheon. This birthplace of jjajangmyeon also houses a special museum dedicated to the dish, introducing its history, progress in development, and the influence and value it effected on Korea. The museum took an empty brick building and restored it for the citizens, allowing visitors to trace the history of the community which is inevitably deeply connected.
There is a one particular restaurant called Gonghawchun, standing two stories, which continues the tradition of making the best jjajangmyeon in town, including keeping the original recipes and ingredients.
