âJeonâ is often seen during the holidays or on rainy days. In fact, it's a delicious dish no matter when you eat it, even if it's not a special day. You can eat it as a side dish for rice or enjoy it with makgeolli, and it goes great together. Rice noodles are usually sliced into thin slices, coated with flour and eggs, and baked over low heat, but in fact, it is also a dish where the skill of the person who makes it look and taste different depending on seasoning and fire control is important. In these days when the cold wind is chilly, let's explore that know-how along with freshly baked warm rice noodles from all the restaurants that are baked by Jeon Munga himself.
