While Seoul may be filled with Korean-style black bean noodles galore, it’s not exactly easy to find Chinese food in the city. Fortunately, there’s 천진포자, which means “Tianjin baozi” (steamed bread from the Tianjin district), that has been able to expand from its original Samcheongdong location to four other venues in Korea. Though originally loved for their heavily breaded Chinese-style dumplings with juicy fillings, we say that the fried chow mien noodles are the thing to buy on a broke, hungry day. Longtime Seoulites may lament the 2,000 won increase in prices (they have gone up in the past few years), but it’s great value for the money spent.
