"Cheonggukjang Ko-da-ri Jeong-sik " / 清国酱明太鱼套餐/청국장코다리정식

Dear friends, have you ever tasted the "Cheonggukjang" from Korea ? Last week, I was invited to have lunch at the Samcheong Dong in Seoul, we enjoyed this Cheonggukjang very much .
What is called " Cheonggukjang" ? Cheonggukjang (Korean pronunciation: [tɕʰʌŋɡuktɕ͈aŋ]) is a fermented soybean paste used in Korean cuisine. It contains whole as well as ground soybeans. It can be made in 2 to 3 days through fermentation of boiled soybeans, adding Bacillus subtilis, which is usually contained in the air or in the rice straw, at about 40°C without adding salt, compared with the much longer fermentation period required for doenjang, another, less pungent variety of Korean soybean paste. Like many forms of doenjang,cheonggukjang is paste-like in texture, but also includes some whole, uncrushed  soybeans.
Cheonggukjang may also be made by fermenting boiled soybeans in a warm place, pounding a portion of them, and adding salt and red chili powder.
Cheonggukjang is generally considered to be a healthy food (particularly in the winter), as it is rich in vitamins and other nutrients, though its very strong odor is not universally enjoyed. Some people have commented that this soup gives off the aroma of wet socks. Doenjang may be used to replace it by people who dislike the smell.
In 1993, odorless cheonggukjang was invented by Dr. Hyun Kyu Joo, a former professor at Kunkook University, who later obtained a patent in 1998 for a method for removing cheonggukjang's characteristic smell.
Cheonggukjang is also believed to aid in digestion. For this purpose, cheonggukjang pills are produced in South Korea.
