Naengmyeon 냉면 (Korean Cold Noodles)

Naengmyeon, or cold noodles, is a very classic Korean dish that one can easily find when one goes to Korea; a dish that one repeatedly sees being featured on Korean dramas and variety shows too. It supposedly originated from Pyongyang, North Korea, and became popular and common in the southern part as well. This dish is prepared with freshly pickled ingredients, buckwheat noodles and a light-tasting, icy cold broth cooked over time with beef and basic stock ingredients. It’s lovely to have this dish in summer to cool the body down, though interestingly, it may be best to eat this dish during winter because buckwheat, being harvested in autumn, is supposed to taste its best during the winter season.
