Korean yogurt

nhowe Sep 26, 2002 11:36 PM

Next time any of you are at the new Koreatown Galleria, save some room for the frozen yogurt at the Wien bakery downstairs. I know, frozen yogurt is food for babies and invalids, but this stuff really tasted fresh and tangy. It also helped me forget the stringy, cartilagenous fish I had just eaten on top of cold sweet potato noodles up in the food court. Even my Korean sister-in-law was scared. Anyone know what species I ate?

    I think you're talking about hwae naeng myun? It's skate wing but it's not dried.

      This fish might have been skate, it has a fair amount of cartilage.

        Badseed -- I didn't examine it and just assumed that it was dried cuttlefish or squid. Now you have my curiosity and I will check it next time I am there.

        Is skate a popular fish to dry and package? How does it differ in taste and texture from squid?

        They also no longer have fun foodie items over by the fresh orange juice machine -- on the far side. They used to have fresh pumpkin taffy during the Fall months, and I remember a few other fun items. For the past couple years I have seen nothing except peanuts and orange juice. Sometimes they also have some dried fish snacks.

          They no longer have the yogurt... utterly disappointing.
