Altari mu (알타리무) is a type of Korean radish.  Because of its phallic shape, it’s also referred to as chonggak mu (총각무), which translates to “bachelor radish.”

Kimchi made with this radish is chonggak kimchi.

I thought that the crunch of the radish would provide interesting texture as a hotdog topping – part of my kimchi hotdog series (see previously 8.146 Continental Kimchi Dogs).

Ouch.

Crunchy, yes, but unfortunately a bit too bitter, even when mixed with mayo.

The sausages were also not that great: salty, not much flavor.
