This dish has become an online sensation after the award winning movie Parasite and when we first tasted it we could understand why! Even without the steak, the mixture of the two instant noodles tasted so good! Jjapaguri was created long before the movie, it is essentially Chapagetti which is something like jajangmyeon combined with Neoguri which is close to Jjamppong. We weren’t able to find the specific brand Neoguri in Singapore, but we found something close to it from the Korean mart near us. Here is our take on Jjapaguri with Steak, hope you enjoy it!
