Hand-Torn Noodle Soup At Han Joon Kwan

Another bowl of soup for my "to do list" -- and I haven't gotten to the hot pot that Min wrote about earlier this month.

Now she has returned to the Korean restaurants on Rte 40, particularly to Han Joong Kwan at the end of a shopping center west of Rte 29:
Windy days call for comfort foods. 
We went to Han Joong Kwan for steamy hot noodle soups. I ordered #36 Sam Sun Jam Bong (Spicy Seafood Noodle Soup), and our house guest was thrilled to see a special off-menu item posted on the wall -- Oyster Sujebi (hand torn noodles) for $10.55. Exactly what he was craving for. Also ordered was #32 plain Ja Jang Myun . All were good.  
The service was nice and fast. Though it was past 1pm on a Saturday, the place was half full but still considerably quiet. Most of the tables occupied were families with children. It's a very family friendly spot. We will certainly go back. HJK is now on my list of noodle soup places.
