This really is good! We didn't have somen noodles...because they're more expensive than Korean Mak-Kook-Soo (Korean thin everyday noodles). We added some baby corn as well. After I finished making the dish, I realized that it would have been nice if we had added some bean sprouts to this as well. Next time, I will add bean sprouts!
