Emart24 Has New Extra-Spicy Menu With Cupbap, Fiery Korean Fried Chicken And More

6th April 2023

Emart24 has new spicy menu items and bingsu

Variety is the spice of life, and Emart24 is taking the spice in this quite literally with a trio of new spicy items on the menu, which will be launched next Tuesday, on 11 April 2023.

The famous Korean convenience store is known for their grab-and-go snacks, which come in a whole multitude of choices, ranging from kimbap to Korean fried chicken, bento boxes of beef bulgogi, and even house-made banchan.

Come next week, joining the ranks of their signature Cupbap is Flaming Dak Galbi Cupbap ($5.50), laced with a new spicy sauce that they’ve concocted in-house.

Give this a good stir before digging in, so you’ll have egg, seaweed, marinated chicken, and rice in every mouthful.

Speaking of their new spicy sauce,  you can get it to go with any of the snacks here too. Simply whisper, shout, or just repeat the phrase, “I’m a spice wang,” when you’re placing your order, and the staff will sort you out with a small tub of this sauce.

Just so you know what you’re saying, 왕 (wang) is Korean for king, so you’re just claiming yourself as a king of spice. This sauce contains Cheongyang chilli peppers, native to Cheongyang County in Korea, but is actually a hybrid of local Jejudo chilli and Thai chilli padi. They’re packed with an intensity of 10,000 Scoville heat units, which sounds like a whole lot, but pales in comparison to the 2,200,000 units of a Carolina Reaper.

Next up, also tossed in a Cheongyang chilli pepper-based dressing, is a new Spicy Garlic Dak Gang Jung ($5.50), AKA Korean fried chicken, which you can have alongside their regular Honey Soy and Yang Nyum versions.

If the regular Tteokbokki ($4.90) here lacks kick for you, consider the similarly priced 2x Spicy Tteokbokki, to which they’ve added Cheongyang chilli peppers too.

After all that spice, cool yourself off with the latest addition to their range of bingsu: Dal Pong Bingsu ($4.90), topped with chunks of dalgona candy and layered with 죠리퐁 (jyolipong), AKA Korean puffed wheat, giving it a roasted caramel flavour.

Otherwise, stick to something more conventional—there’s Milo, Injeolmi, and Strawberry, all priced at $4.90 a cup too, that’s perfect for one.
