This cupful of despair costed 2,000 won.

What in the world is Bondeagi??

Beondegi, pronounced bon-day-gee, is boiled/steamed silkworm pupae, and is commonly eaten as a snack in South Korea. In many areas around Seoul, you will see street vendors stirring huge pots of boiling, gooey Beondegi and selling it on their carts. Although it’s protein-rich and packed with nutrients, the smell is absolutely awful, which is why it took me so long to try it in the first place. Seriously, you can smell it a block away and it makes me want to gag every time I encounter it.

And how did it taste?? Exactly like it smells. And there’s no way in hell I’m ever eating it again.
