I got an interesting edible souvenir from a colleague today. She just came back from vacation in Korea. Since it is an acknowledged fact that I suck in remembering who gave me what souvenir, I shall blog about it so that I can be reminded by reading about it from time to time.
Seasoned Laver. I have no idea what that means. And I have no idea how to read those Korean words. From the picture on the packaging, it looks like those dried seaweed snack that we usually associate with Japan. Kimchi seasoned seaweeds?
Sure enough, once I opened the package, I am greeted by a semi familiar sight.
8 seaweed pieces sprinkled with fiery looking seasoning flakes. They were awesome and freakishly addictive! These 8 pieces of tongue torturing delicacy set my mouth on fire for almost 3 hours before the heat slowly subsided!
I might have to get people to buy me more if and when there is anyone going to Korea.
And thanks for this wonderful souvenir, Miss Colleague! 😉
