I was in South Korea 15 or so years ago and a friend took me to this little small restaurant in Seoul. There was one side dish I have been trying to find since then, but so far no luck.
It was some kind of vegetable that was made or cut up into rather long like squarish type pieces (would resembe large spaghetti kind of) and it was laying in a clearish type liquid substance with a very light flavor of some kind. The square vegetable strings were crunchy and I believed they were raw, not cooked at all, and the broth was just room temperature. The broth was very watery like with possibly a slight yellowish coloring to it. I really liked this side dish, but at the time I did not try to ask what it was and have regretted it ever since.
I would love to know what this was because it was very good. Not spicy, but good. At any rate thought I would try to describe this to you to see if you might know what vegetable that might could have been used.
I would also like to know what tool or whatever was used to cut or make those long type squarish string pieces. They were not quite 1/4 inch squarish, but about maybe 9 to 10 inches long I think.
This is the closest possibility I have found so far to what this might have been, but still not sure.
Platycodon is doraji in Korean.
The picture didn't paste over here, I tried! LOL
OK, if anyone has any ideas regarding my quest it would be greatly apprecated.
