I was pleasantly surprised to a bunch of 2nd grader desks pushed together with chairs all around to make a get together with food covering the table. So nice! There was mashed up fish on a stick,
오 댕 (odang). 떡 븎 이 (deokbokki), which is rice cakes and fish cakes mixed in a spicy red sauce. There was also deep fried whatever, a combination of shrimps and maybe some vegetables. Lastly was 순 대 (sundae). In my head the word sundae conjures up lovely sweet and chocolate-y images in my head. But in Korea, sundae is something quite different (and tastes quite the opposite as well!). Sundae (pronounced soon-day) is like a blood sausage. I had the misfortune of not knowing what it was when I first arrived in Korea, and with an audience of about 8 Korean coworkers, had to choke it down while feigning enjoyment. Not again. It is either cow or pig's intestines mixed with a bunch of other unappetizing things wrapped in a sausage, and it's black. Ugh. Served with the sundae was maybe liver or other animal inside parts that are not so yummy tasting to me.
