    3. Season to taste with sugar and soy sauce. Add sesame oil, stir through and dish out into bowls. Top with sesame seeds if desired.
    Recipe Notes

    This is a tough dish to make properly unless you use the listed ingredients. If you don't have access to a Korean grocery store, you should be able to order the ingredients online.

Richard found that there was no central repository of mobile street food information anywhere on the internet, and with that, the idea for MCM was born.
