Here's a pic of some bibimbap I ate three days ago. You can see what looks to be the seaweed salad on the bottom of it.

Yeah, the same thing

Oh, and the idea of dry seaweed I can see on the top is good too. I don't recall seeing it in a Korean restaurant in my bibimbap, but I can try it when I prepare mine the next time

Did Janeway like the bibimbap?

Oh yes she loved it, LOL, it had no leola root in it. I've had it with dry seaweed more often than not, though it's really decoration. It's fun seeing what different places use because you never know what's lurking in there. I've never made it myself, though I have made kimchi a few times now and it's come out great.

I've made kimchi several times too. You can buy it in any supermarket here in Hong Kong, but they usually are with crustaceans, which I don't eat because I'm a veggie, so my solution was to make my own kimchi

You can buy it here too in asian supermarkets but the stuff I made myself was excellent. Once I put fish sauce in it, once I didn't. Can't tell much difference.

Re: What is this food called?

Grey quoted wiki, which said:

It is named after the Shinto god Inari, who is believed to have a fondness for fried tofu.
A transcendant being has no need of biochemical nutrition, nor a taste for fish, and thus I denounce Inari as a false god.

Also, the tofu thing was a dead giveaway. No highly advanced lfe form would eat that stuff. The one true God forbade the consumption of shellfish, crustaceans, and other sea life that can't be fried and served like catfish with hushpuppies and cole slaw, and his reign shall last until the end of time, or until the tartar sauce runs out, whichever comes first.

Re: What is this food called?

INARI!!! *drool*

That's one of my favorite sushi-type items. The wrapper is like deep-fried tofu that's *somehow* formed into a thin pocket or pouch...and it's soaked in like some sweet..something (mirin...?) and stuffed with sticky rice with maybe some sesamie seeds and sometimes other stuff (like the seaweed salad I guess.)

I don't know very many people other than me who like this dish..

A dead, false god.

I've had good kimchi at restaurants, but the stuff I've gotten in a jar from the Asian grocery stores basically tastes like sauerkraut mixed with siracha.
