NYT: Korean hongeo (fish) smells worse than durian

  1. i think the icelandic american society in LA will serve fermented shark for porrablot, but that's in march.

    1. Years ago an old co-worker brought some leftovers back to freak us out. Unfortunately, I have no idea which restaurant he got it from. I work in the South Bay and there are a ton of Korean restaurants here. I would be surprised if KTown didn't have even more options for this.

      For me personally, it's the overwhelming ammonia smell and taste that makes this repulsive. I'm completely unable to suppress my gag reflex when the heavy Windex taste takes over.
