Golbaengi with Sari (WHAT)



-Oksu, Seongdong, Seoul, Korea-

Golbaengi (골뱅이) is a Korean dish.  Consists of the sea snails, which come shelled, cooked, and canned in a sweetish briny solution, mixed with onions/scallions/garlic, sometimes cucumbers/carrots, seasoned with chili paste/chili powder/sesame oil/sugar.   Often served with boiled noodles on the side – “sari” refers to any additional noodles on the side – which help to mop up the spicy sauce.  Technically, “golobangi” refers to the snails themselves, usually translated as “bai-top shells” in English.  But the snails are always prepared in this manner, so the term is synonymous with the dish.
