Chapchae , japchae or jabchae is one of my ultimate comfort foods and  a favorite Korean dish.  It is made from sweet potato noodles, stir fired in sesame oil, vegetables like carrots, onions, mushrooms, beef or chicken, flavored with soy sauce and sugar and topped with sesame seeds and slivers of egg.

TBW has tried many versions of this dish from restaurants to Korean housewives’ weekend market recipes  to private dinners.  (Mind you, no one is claiming to be a food connoisseur nor an expert on Korean food, with which a food love affair has begun just very recently. ) But there is only one chapchae truly acknowledged by my taste buds as the best!  Bon Chon’s!

Bon Chon's chapchae.  A steal at 75 pesos per order!

Bon Chon's chapchae. A steal at 75 pesos per order! Comfort food indeed!

Of course ordering chachae only at Bon Chon is quite unacceptable especially with 2 growing boys around.  An order of wings, drumstick or chops has to be made as well.

Soy garlic wings and chops. A good accompaniment to chapchae =)))

Love it!
