A Summer Must in Seoul: Kongguksu (noodles in chilled soy broth)

Kongguksu garnished with cucumber and cherry tomatoes

Grab a bowl of refreshing Kongguksu (콩국수), a purely vegetarian and healthy dish popular in Seoul during the hot summer days.  Kongguksu is a dish consisting of somen noodles in a chilled soybean milk/soup.  The dish can be enjoyed plain with just the noodles, or garnished with tomato slices, cucumber, scallions, and sesame seeds.  I prefer having mine with fresh vegetables because it enhances the flavor of the soybean broth!  Add a dash of salt to taste and this delicious bowl of cold noodles will keep you cool while satisfying your tastebuds!

Plain Kongguksu accompanied with Kimchi
Jinjujip and Jinju Hoegwan are two restaurants located in Seoul famous for their Kongguksu!  Go try it out today!
