Sam Won Gak - Korean Chinese Restaurant Review

SamWonGak is a Korean-Chinese Restaurant, located in Queens, NY.

If you want some good JaJjangMyun (Noodles with Brown Bean Sauce) then, go here. I've tasted this noodle dish from various places, but I've gotta say that this place is the BOMBDIGGITY and the best in NY/NJ. This restaurant is very casual and don't expect to get small portions and exquisite presentations. The prices are decent and the portions are pretty large. You get the bang for your buck, essentially. It get's pretty busy on the weekends, especially during dinner time so beware!

FOOD TIME: -- Please excuse the half eaten pictures because I totally forgot to take the pictures... Hopefully I'll update the pictures in the future..

They have different types of JaJjangMyun (written in Korean as - 짜짱면) but I think that they all taste really good, except for the Vegetable one. I say this because they add in Bell Peppers, and the flavor/taste of the bell peppers are very overpowering and that's all you can taste when eating the noodles. Aside from this, the rest of the Noodles with the Brown Sauce are very delicious. The sauce is brought out on the side so you can put on the noodles as much or as little as you want.

Fried Beef in Sweet and Sour Sauce (Beef TangSooYook 탕수육) - Very delicious. The sauce isn't too sweet and it isn't too sour - it's just right. I suggest you get some soy sauce, vinegar and red pepper flakes, (which are already set on the table) and pour it on your plate so you can dip the beef into (about a 2 tbsp - soy sauce; 1 tbsp - vinegar; however much of the pepper you want). It just enhances the flavor, and if you want more seasoning, that's a def go to recipe.

When ordering the Fried Rice, please beware that the portion is pretty big so if you want to try other dishes, SHARE THE FRIED RICE!! The picture might make the portion look small, but don't fall for it! It's a pretty hefty portion. haha.

Their Fried Dumplings sort of taste like Soup Dumplings (Xiao Long Bao) but without the soup. It's really good, and it's pretty big so if you're not sharing, a plate of these dumplings might be enough to fill you up.

I would recommend this restaurant if you want some good JaJjangMyun, good Korean-Chinese food really, and the bang for your buck! :)
