The seafood broth in this kalguksu (knife-cut, flour-based noodles) is enriched by toasted seaweed, fish cakes, spinach and spring onion that dot the surface. The whole thing is crowned by a dollop of spicy gochujang (hot pepper) paste. The noodles are served with sides of bibim naengmyeon (mixed cold noodles), kimchi and sauteed spinach.
