    What on earth is this? Is that edible? Yes, it is. Is it gross? No, it isn’t. Well, it depends on your preference; if you like fish, you will like it. This is skewered fish cake, aka odeng. (오뎅) How do you make this? This is a flower-based snack made with fish. When you eat it, you will feel that this tastes fishy.

    Many Koreans like it especially in the cold winter because it is served with its water. It tastes quite good. Usually, this is boiled with thick seaweed (다시마) and crab. (게)

    There are many shapes. Also, you will sometimes find spicy odeng like the picture right above.
