Woorijip Now Selling Korean Blood Sausage
I don’t usually eat lunch in Midtown on the weekends (why would you!?!), but occasionally it will happen. Like on Saturday when I found myself in Koreatown buying ingredients to make homemade kimchi. I stopped in to pick up a little lunch at Woorijip (on 32nd btw. B’way+5th) and noticed something I had never seen before: korean blood sausage (or soondae.) Nice. It was in the refrigerated section in the back, so it wasn’t as good as it would have been had it been warm (I don’t like microwaving things) but the flavor was still good. Made with cellophane noodles, the blood flavor was actually pretty mild (overwhelmed a bit by the intense garlic flavor.) I’m guessing there are much better versions of this to be had on 32nd street, but all in all it was a fun treat, and not nearly as offal tasting as you would expect.
