Kalguksu is Korean style handmade, knife cut noodles.
But now days, even it鈥檚 not made from scratch it鈥檚 still called Kalguksu as long as it has the unique texture!

Me and my hubby Jacob went MangwonMarket in Mapo, Seoul to eat the authentic old fashioned Korean street food and the first food we had was this Kalguksu.

It was so simple yet, has lots of flavors in the clear broth!
Definitely made with Korean signature anchovy broth. I do have a recipe for Korean broth, so go ahead and check it out by click the link below!

It鈥檚 totally worth to keep the recipe if you are Korean food lover! I use this broth for all kinds of Korean soup and stew recipes. It also freezes well, so you can make ahead!

If you use vegetable broth, this dish will be vegan!
You can make vegan using my Korean sock recipe too, by just omit the dried anchovy from the recipe.
If you don鈥檛 mind if this dish is vegan or not, and just happen to have chicken stock in your kitchen? Go ahead use it, that works great too!

BUT,

Due to cooking in a hotel room without all the tools and ingredients鈥 (I actually filmed this video and took pictures outside of the hotel! lol 馃槀) I used vegetable brothbouillon from Korean market.

Either you are using store bought or homemade noodles, you have to shake off the excess flour/cornstarch form the noodles! So that way, the soup won鈥檛 get too thicken.
