(Update: See a link to my restaurant review in the Eugene Weekly here.)
Café Arirang on E. Broadway at Ferry Street Bridge, the best kept dining secret in Eugene, now has a list of fall specials, including these spicy soups and noodle dishes to warm your insides:
- Zzambong, a “very spicy” noodle soup with seafood (9.95);
- Zzajang Mjun, vegetables, pork, potatoes in a black bean sauce over noodles (8.95); and
- Beef Short Rib Soup with glass noodle, egg, and vegetables (10.95).
The only problem is that they are closed on Saturdays and the location is kind of wretched (up the street from Evergreen Indian on Franklin, located on that weird little jog where E. Broadway joins Franklin with the Ferry St. bridge). But once you’re there, you’ll meet the nicest elderly couple who cook and prepare wonderful, homey Korean meals at reasonable prices. They make their own kimchi, and the most authentic Korean in town. They really need some support from the post-teriyaki crowd. Every time I go back, I see more and more patrons in the restaurant, but let’s help them flourish!
