Gourmets who love to taste rare seafood delicacies will like their rest in Korea. One of the most popular and delicious national dishes is a gebul, a marine worm. Worms are gathered at the coast; they are one of the most expensive seafood options. Marine worms are appreciated not only for unique taste, but also for amazing medicinal properties. In some provinces of Vietnam, marine worms are eaten raw and still alive, but the most popular restaurants serve a soup of sea worms. It is cooked with the addition of greens, herbs, and chili. The dish turns out to be very nutritious and wholesome.
Some exotic restaurants can offer visitors raw worms. Before serving, they’re cut into small pieces, which still continue to move on a plate. No matter how horrible the appearance may seem, most people who have tried it say that it has exceptional taste. Also, fans of the exotics have to know that, unlike a live octopus and some other dishes, gebul is completely safe for consumption.
Besides Vietnam, sea worms are popular in South Korea, where they can also be purchased at many fish markets. The cost of a marine worm is about one US dollar. It’s very important to cut the stuff properly before cooking. Tourists who do not know how to do this, are recommended to ask the seller at the market. For a small fee, he will eliminate guts and hard bristles of the worm. Next - Fried Tarantulas in Phnom Penh Restaurants
