wakame salad

aznpoon | Jan 27, 2005 08:37 PM

i've always been a fan of japanese food and wakame salad is something that i really love
i have had two different kinds of wakame salad - ones that have big leafy wakame (which i don't like) and ones that only have the stem of the wakame
if you have ever looked at the seaweed salad at pusateri's you would know what i mean. The stems are very thin and have a translucent, greenish colour. The ingredients on the box of the seaweed salad calls it seawood but from what i have read some korean websites, seawood is actually just seaweed stem
now my question is, where can i get my hands on some seaweed stem?
i did a bit of searching on the internet and it seems that the japanese call it kuki wakame. All of the places that I have been to only have the leafy wake and not just the stems by itself. can anyone help?
