Beondegi is a real Korean treat if nothing else. Whether you’re walking through small streets or large markets, you’ll always smell the juices of the silk worm larvae boiling away. The smell of beondegi, a bizarre Korean food, is pungent, distinguished and memorable but surprisingly appealing. Beondegi rose to popularity as a much needed source of protein during the Korean War because protein was scarce, as well as many other macro nutrients. Try this delicious treat out the next time you’re in Korea.
