Gaebul 캐불, otherwise known as "penis fish", is one of the interesting items you can find at Jagalchi Market. Despite its unfortunate nickname and appearance that turns people off before they even try it, Gaebul is actually a marine spoon worm and has nothing to do with the male organ.

The innards are cleaned from the Gaebul and what essentially ends up on your plate is the skin of the Gaebul, chopped into tiny pieces. The Gaebul is served plain but accompanied by dipping sauces of sesame oil and Gochujang on the side. On it's own, the Gaebul has a slight, almost neglible hint of sweetness but has a crunch and slight chewiness to each bite, like you're eating a thick piece of black fungus or pig ears. Apparently, this texture is what people eat Gaebul for and it goes well with the dipping sauces.

Bottom line is not to judge a book by its cover, give this phallic creature a chance to dlight you!

FYI, at the indoor section of Jagalchi, you can choose to have your seafood prepared and served immediately, which is probably as fresh as it can get.
