The noodle house markets itself as a Korean-Chinese restaurant, serving dishes like jajangmyeon (black bean sauce noodles) and jjamppong (Korean spicy seafood noodle soup). It has outlets in multiple countries worldwide, including the U.S. and Australia. 


Noodles are handmade daily

The restaurant’s PR rep tells that Paik’s Noodle will “hand-make their noodles daily". They are served with house-made Paik’s sauces imported directly from Korea. While the Singapore menu hasn’t been confirmed, Paik’s Noodle typically specialises in variations of jajangmyeon and jjamppong. Jaengban jajang Besides their classic jajangmyeon and jjamppong made with pork and veggies, their overseas menus usually contain a spicy “gochu” version of both dishes that’s topped with hot chilli peppers, as well as a stir-fried variation of both, called “jaengban jajang” and “bokkeum jjamppong”. Jajang bap Meanwhile, there are also some rice dishes, such as jjamppong or jajang bap (meaning rice in Korean). Jjamppong bap is jjamppong served alongside small portions of rice and noodles, while jajang bap is a rice dish topped with an omelette and drenched in black bean sauce.
