Choong Hwa Won- aka JAJANGMYUN

Choong Hwa Won
4409 John Marr Drive
Annandale, VA 22003

This is probably the best jajangmyun ever (noodles in a black bean sauce)! (and trust me, jajangmyun is my favorite dish so I’ve had it just about everywhere )

the kkampung-shrimp was good but not the best (that place is in LA).

and what is jajangmyun without some large, fried dumplings!

This place was unbelievably cheap for the portions they gave (that bowl of jajangmyung was $4.50! and it was HUGE!) And they have nice long hours, from 11 AM to midnight, so for traveller like me who come in at some random hour in the night, I do not need to fear because they will still be open! Even though the servers can’t speak English, as long as you point at the item on the menu (which is also the place mat), you’re good.

  1. Although I like this place, I’d have to disagree that this isn’t even the best JJM place in Northern Virginia alone in my mind. I guess the taste is subjective and everyone has different opinion. The better place for JJM (in my mind), ironically, located just across the street from this place called Jang Won. The price is higher than this place, but then you can’t really go lower than $3.99 for a bowl of JJM if you want to have sustainable business. The JW has unique combo where you can combine JJM and other meat dishes for $9.95 and it’s plenty for a meal. I also believe the JJM at JW is more authentic than this place as I had watery/not-so-bold flavors from JoongHwa. It’s just my opinion. Next time you’re in the area, try JW too.
