What does Beondegi taste like?

We got some friends to try this Korean street food. It is basically pupa.

Beondegi

Their reactions:

crunchy

like tempeh

The taste? I couldn’t tell you, but apparently as bad as it smells, that is, bitter and pungent. The texture, crunchy on the outside and just ever so slightly gooey on the inside…

You can buy a can of beondegi at Korean convenience stores.
