I love glass noodles but I've never had Korean glass noodles before. I don't really fancy Korean food except for Kimchi (a traditional Korean dish consisting of fermented chili peppers and vegetables, usually based on cabbage) and Gimbop (Korean-style sushi roll).

So, yesterday, I had this Korean speciality dish at home.

Korean Vermicelli. These long, chewy noodles are made from sweet potato starch.

Gochujang (hot pepper paste), a savory and pungent fermented Korean condiment.

I'm not sure about the recipe though coz I'm not smart enough to make this dish. But, I can ask the chef anytime.

The noodles are gray when raw and turn almost translucent when cooked (thus given its popular nickname, glass noodles). It's incredibly chewy and surprisingly delicious!
