Guh Sang in Queens -- Question for Korean Cuisine Experts

mashpee | Nov 27, 2007 06:03 PM

As a hard core jajangmyun afficianado, I finally tried Guh Sang on Bell Blvd and 48th Avenue in Oakland Gardens.

The jajangmyun was excellent and the jjampong looked great too (although I was too full to try it.)

I'm writing because I was served a dish at the end of my meal that I have never seen before and none of my friends who have actually been to Korea have been able to identify it either.

We were offered a plate containing many small pieces of potato (I am 99% sure it was just normal potato) coated with a sauce that looked like brownish lacquer and tasted sweet. The waitress also brought a bowl of ice water. Several of the potato pieces were pre-speared with toothpicks and the waitress showed us that we were supposed to dip the potato pieces in the icewater using those toothpicks. When we did so, the sauce hardened and was almost like a candy coating on the potato. It was really delicious and totally unique in my experience -- not like any banchan I have ever had.

Anyone know what this is?

Thanks in advance!
