Now you may remember how I tried some steamed silkworms (Beondegi 번데기) at Makgeolli 3000 a while back. Rumor has it that they taste pretty different depending on where you get them. Best ones are found on mountain trails. I guess it’s a healthy dose of much-needed power food. We came across a vendor selling them at the Andong Mask Festival and thought we’d give it a try.
On the left side are some small shell things, and the silkworms are on the right.
