    Kalguksu shouldn’t be bland, but it also depends on what your palate is used to. “Kal” means knife and “guksu” is noodle. I believe it’s typically flavored with anchovies and kelp (what I also use when making a basic udon broth) and some salt. Preparation is generally pretty plain, but I also usually see it with chopped green onions, and people will put in some ground black pepper, red pepper, maybe some sliced meat, and veggies before eating. Goes great with kimchi.

    Very jealous!
