콩국수 Kong Guk Su

It's officially summertime and it's time to eat some summery foods!  One of my favorites is Kong Guk Su.  This is a cold noodle dish.  The Kong (콩) part of the name means beans.  It's a ground bean base with some cucumbers and sesame seeds.  Put the ice cubes in and enjoy a cool and refreshing meal for those hot summer days!

    The website is - if you like the look of it and would be open to helping, please email me - we'd be so grateful. The email is
    We'd put links to your blog on there and give you a contributor's profile too :-)
