In search for more Korean-infused Chinese food, we ended up finding Jin Men on Fulton Avenue. The restaurant was completely empty upon arrival. A friendly server quickly approached us and seated us in the empty restaurant. He quickly provided water and offered to help with the menu. After reviewing the menu, we decided to order.

Today, we decided to order the jajangmyun and the shrimp in chili sauce. After the server took the menus, he provided few side dishes which included kim chee and raw onions with black bean sauce. Eventually, the meal arrived. The jajangmyun had way too much onion in the dish. You can clearly see that almost an entire onion was evident in the dish. With so much onion, the flavor was overpowered and little meat remained. The shrimp in chili sauce was very interesting because it comes in a large shell that you need to crack with the provided mallet. Inside, you will find decent-sized shrimp covered in delicious chili sauce. I found myself eating the entire shell at the end. The shrimp and sauce went very well over rice.

Overall, Jin Men serves up a variety of interesting dishes crafted in interesting ways. Although the jajangmyun was disappointing, the shrimp in chili sauce was delicious and interesting with its large shell. Prices were a bit high, but service was excellent. If you are looking for something different other than jajangmyun, then Jin Men might be a good change of pace.
