Zzamppong Zizon is not your typical Korean restaurant. The restaurant feature contemporary design along with bright decor and graphics. With pandemic seating arrangement, every table are separated from others with a plastic wall panel shield. Formerly a Vietnamese pho restaurant and it is located at the northeast corner of the Super H Mart shopping center on Pleasant Hill Road.
Recently opened for business for a couple of months and this place has been attracting a lot of buzz amongst young Korean diners.
The menu is simple and straightforward featuring popular dishes catering to Korean appetites. It features 12 items only from Spicy Seafood Noodles (Jjampong), Black Bean Noodles (JaJiang Mien) to Steam Dumplings.
For those who are adventurous can savor their special offering: Spicy “Hell” Seafood Noodles and Spicy “Hell” Black Bean Noodles with heat ranges from 1 to 4.
The service are quick and attentive by mostly young wait staffs. Be prepared for a price shock as dishes are typically priced $2.00 or more than standard pricing.
You should check out their signature dishes: Jjampong ($13.99) and JaJiang Mien ($9.99). The serving size are smaller when compared to your “Grandma” Korean restaurant. However, you will noticed their ingredients are of higher quality – fresher seafood with more variety of vegetables along with a rich seafood broth.
K-Pop musics are being piped through out the restaurant along with K-Pop artist videos on flat screen panels on the walls.
Overall, the dishes are tasty and delicious. Portions are much smaller from your typical Korean “Mom & Pop” places.
I recommend that you stop by to support a fellow Asian entrepreneur who has the gut to venture into business during the pandemic.
