(Searching) (His survival index cards are back) Language course. Excuse me. Excuse me. (Desperate gesture) (I’m sorry) (Hahaha) That was in vain. Did you see his hand? (So embarrassed) (He looks rather pathetic) There are no noodle restaurants. (He’s facing trouble already?) Oh, no. (What am I to do?) (He keeps walking) (Waving) Are you Korean? I’m Korean-Chinese. Excuse me? Korean-Chinese. Oh, Korean-Chinese. He must be happy. So happy. What kind of noodle dish is good here? – This is Yongkang Street. / – Yongkang Street. – Dumplings are famous here. / – Dumplings? (Resident’s pick 1, xiao long bao) And over there is… I’ve been there. They have traditional Taiwanese noodles. Which one? You found one. You should take her with you. She had to go. Noodles of hundred years? Yes, this is the most famous one. Japanese people like it, too. (It’s a fancy name) It’s written in Korean. Danzi noodles. Okay. (He ordered a bowl of 100-year noodles) It’s called “danzi noodles.” A Korean-Chinese who lives here recommended this place, so I decided to try it out. (Danzi noodles, during the typhoon season) (Fishermen sold them to make money) That’s really good. That’s from Taiwan. It looks rich. I can see history. (Originated in Tainan in 1895) There’s sauce.

(Great restaurant recommended by a local) That soup looks hot. (So impressed) It deserves the name “100-year noodles.” Sounds like a poem. You didn’t say it was good because you didn’t feel like walking around, did you? That was the first restaurant. That can’t be! It wasn’t like that, was it? I can smell the shrimp in the broth. Shrimp. And I think they added some pork bones. And since they used minced beef to make the sauce, the flavors cover the noodles, so it goes down smoothly. If you served this like Korean noodles, you’d slurp them down and that’s it. I think this would work. (Gyeonggyu loves it) This is nice. Nice. People usually don’t eat the whole thing up.

He uses me when he gets something bad. (I’m done here) Would you like some? (#Beef noodle soup 2) (#Cold noodles) Cold noodles? You ate all of them in one day? Yes. This isn’t bad. But it’s not amazing either. (But it’s just okay…) – 2, 3, 4, 5… / – So many kinds… Why are they all not so good? (I ate so much, but why are they all not so good?) You ate six bowls. You have to find something. They weren’t for Korean palate. (He looks sad…) Oh, I keep… Doing difficult shows. (Embarrassed Gyu) It’s like a comedy skit. (Is this comedy or real?) In 1950. In 1950… (He spotted an old restaurant) – It opened. / – It’s an old restaurant. 1950? That was before we were born. Oh, that’s not true for Gyeonggyu. (Not true!

If they had goose noodles at convenience stores, I think people would buy it out of curiosity. I’m really curious about it. It’s worth a try, but could we make noodles this thin? Rice noodles? I’ve never seen anything this thin before. (Gyu Ikjeom’s sack: Danzi noodles) (Goose noodles) Delicious. Is it similar to chicken broth? The goose broth? They look similar. It’s richer. It might be greasy. It’s not greasy at all. He is being really honest. He doesn’t dress things up just because we’re on a TV show. I’m honest. If it’s delicious, I do this. If it’s bad, this. (Frowning) The two are different. I’m letting you know if it’s good or bad. Gyeonggyu isn’t generous with compliments, so when he praises something, I get curious. I agree. I’m thinking of raising geese. (Hahaha)
