Ode to Chimdak 찜딹

An often overlooked culinary masterpiece from the land of the morning calm is Chimdak. Chimdak is a medley of chicken, tanmyeon *see through noodles, cabbage, cheese and dumplings.
This is such a basic idea yet it has no right being as tasty as it is. If you’re in Korea and about to get yet ANOTHER Samgyeopsal or yet ANOTHER Dakkgalbi, think for a moment, have I ever tried the good word of Chimdak? If the answer is no- then I can only say that this stuff is so good it should be a world heritage icon.
