  1. i had a korean noodle dish two months ago in little rock, ar at a restauran there and the dish was called "K2" or something like kangkoog. i'm sorry i suck at pronouncing so the waitress said to call it K2. or am i talking about two different things. the dish is a two part deal. first you have a big bowl with noodles, vegetable like bean sprouts, carrots, some kind of lettuce, cilantro and green onions topped with beef and meatballs. then you have a smaller bowl with the sauce which is a combination of soy sauce, oil and something sweet and something thick-like sauce which you pour over the first bowl and mix it all together. am i making any sense at all? PLEASE HELP ME!!! i really like this dish and i want to know how to make it better yet to know its name might be the first thing to know. PLEASE PLEASE SOMEONE HELP ME!!! PLEASE!!!


  3. Hi, ciciyaj,
    I asked you to leave your question here on the forum because I had no idea about this noodle dish when you asked me through email. You did, but so far no one has given you answer.

    I think the noodle dish is not a Korean dish. Korean cooking doesn't use cilantro. "kangkoog"? I can't think about any Korean words! : )

    If you have a chance to go back to the restaurant where you had the noodles, ask the owner directly. You make me curious about this noodle dish and it sounds like delicious.

  4. sounds similar to chinese hot pot...?? sure it was korean??

  5. Hey Ciciyaj,
    i'm pretty sure what you're talking about is Vietnamese Bun (i think it's pronounced "boon"). It's a noodle salad that consists of fine rice vermacelli noodles, lettuce, carrots, raw bean sprouts, cilantro, crushed peanut. it is served with a flavored fish sauce (like garlic fish sauce) in a separate small bowl that you mix into the noodle salad. often it's accompanied by meat (like grilled chicken/beef/pork/shrimp/meatballs, etc.) and sometimes spring rolls as well. You then can add in the thick sauce you mentioned (which would be hoisin usually) and some hot sauce.

    So definitely not korean. try googling vietnamese bun to see if it's what you had.

  6. Here in New York, I know there is a dish that sounds something like that. Its a dish "borrowed" from the Vietnamese but there is a Korean restaurant serving it. I think its something like pho, I think my mother had it at the restaurant; they call it shabu shabu? Ah not sure. Pho is delicious though! Cilantro and the bean sprouts make it so yummy!

  7. Pho is a vietnamese noodle soup (one of my all-time favorites) and shabu shabu is a japanese dish where you have a pot of boiling broth in the middle of the table and you dip thin slices of meat, seafood, noodles, vegetables and eat it. it doesn't sound like Ciciyaj is referring to a soup though..
