Dotori Muk Sabal
-Oksu, Seongdong, Seoul, Republic of Korea-
Dotori Muk Sabal (도토리북 사발) is a Korean dish. It’s a bowl (sabal) of acorn (dotori) jelly cakes (muk) in a cool tangy broth, topped with sliced vegetables (e.g., cucumbers, cabbage, mixed greens, radish sprouts), garnished with crushed seasoned laver and sesame seeds. Usually served as an appetizer. Similar in essence to the more common dotori muk muchim, which is more of a salad (2.299 Dotori Muk Muchim).
Making the dish from quasi-scratch – pre-made jelly cakes and prepared broth can be found in any big supermarket – is as easy as a ready-to-go package.
