My First Taste of Korean Kong-guksu

Kong-guksu

We needed a quick meal after a long day in the office today (and before a long night of work ahead), so we went to a random food area in the mall next to our office and picked the restaurant that had the most people. Of all the things on the menu, this white bean soup thing looked the most unique, so I figured that I'd give it a try.

It was nasty. It was basically plain noodles sitting in a cold and thick soybean milk, with nothing but some sesame seeds, cucumber slices, and a cherry tomato to go with it. I had to keep eating kimchi on the side in order to give my palate any sense of excitement. Ugh. I won't be getting that again.

It should be served hot. The better restaurants use hand made noodles

I admire your commitment to eat it...i would have stopped at the first bite.
