Use of White Potatoes in Traditional East Asian Cooking?

opinionatedchef | Sep 20, 2011 10:16 PM

I first heard of potatoes being eaten in China from a plant explorer who was in western china and watched the local workers eat PLAIN (no soy sauce, nada) roasted potatoes for lunch/ dinner. Since then, i have eaten a super duper popular Korean noodle dish,
<Jajangmyun- homemade noodles topped with a black bean sauce with chopped pork, potatoes, onions and zucchini >
that often contains cubes of potato.
Anyone know of other occurrences of potatoes being eaten in traditional Eastern Asian cuisines(not Indian)?
I am not talking about taro or sweet potatoes; I am talking about white potatoes. I bet I'm going to learn about a lot of new things here; Thanks for your info!
