Yesterday [personal profile] juli  took me (and some friends) to dinner at a Korean restaurant, where she had called ahead and persuaded them to make dotorimuk just for me. Dotorimuk is jello-like stuff made from acorn starch. It is served with chrysanthemum leaves, shredded bell peppers, sesame oil, and a sauce made out of hot pepper, honey, garlic, and soy sauce. The acorns are earthy and slightly sweet. I had only had simplified dotorimuk preparations in the past, and I was blown away by the real thing. I am reasonably sure it is The Most Delicious Thing.  

I did not think to take a picture of the dotorimuk, because I was too busy PUT IT IN MY MOUTH, so I'm shamelessly stealing a picture from this website:

I really admire [personal profile] juli 's ability to talk to the chefs at a restaurant and get them to make something that isn't on the menu. That seems almost supernatural to me: she's doing something outside the rules that govern the world as I understand it.
