Thin Wheat Noodles/Somyeon (소면)
Somyeon is a thin noodle made from wheat flour. It appears to be a thick miswa. It is used in both cold and hot dishes. Cooking time is only 3 min.
During cooking it produces a considerable amount of froth. You may want to watch over it more closely. The trick is to pour a little water when it's close to overflowing. Don't forget to shock it or run under cold water after cooking, otherwise it's going to turn into a paste.
This is available in supermarkets like SM and Robinson's.
