    I went to the Hot Pot place for lunch. You can pick out all this stuff, whatever you like and they cook it in soup. Today, I put some little "rice sausages" in, one was sweet potato (sort of purple colour) and the other was just "rice" and was white. They were little things, maybe 5cm long. Inside, they had a stripe of something sweetish. I tried looking it up to see what's in them, but if you put in anything sausage and hot pot you just get anglo sausage hotpot recipes.
    Does anyone know what they are?

    Yes, that looks similar I reckon that's it for the outside part, but the ones at the shop had a filling and it was sweet and they also had rounded ends, not cut off from a strip like the picture.

    Could be anything

    Plenty of sweet varieties if you search "sweet Tteok" :)

    Yeh, it wasn't sweet as in a sweet/dessert, it was for putting in your hot pot, but it had a stripe of "something" inside and it was sweet.

    If it was reddish brown colour it might have been sweet bean paste

    It was sort of orange, I thought it might have been egg perhaps, but why you'd put sugar (or sweet) in it I don't know.

    No, all the ingredients have labels on the shelf so you aren't completely lost as to what you are picking. It was only the middle that was orange, the outside was white on the "rice" one and purple on the "sweet potato" one.

    That's what they look like, but I don't think they had cheese. The "sausage" was quite "bland" and not at all fatty. The middle similarly didn't seem fatty/cheesy. I can ask them next time I go there, I just thought maybe someone on here was familiar with them. They are definitely the tteok mentioned, it's just what was in them that is still a bit of a mystery to me. Given that there could be a zillion variations, could be anything.

    Look up mala tang rice cake in google images and you should see some pics of them

    If they are the ones I'm thinking about, then it will be cheese, but the cheese is basically there to give it a runny texture when it's been in the hot pot so as you bite it kinda squishes out.

    But as you say, there is lots of different variants! Could be anything

    Yes, malatang is the broth I had today (you get a choice what broth, as well as choosing all the bits). I'm pretty sure it wasn't cheese, it didn't squish, and it was sweet.

    Look up

    Purple = "Soondae"

    White I think is a variaion of "Kim Mari" a variation of "Kim Bap"

    Yellow vege is "korean pickled daikon radish" almost the same is Japanese

    If you hadn’t mentioned the hotpot part, I would have thought you were talking about fan tuan. Love that stuff, especially when you have it for. Breakfast

    That looks tasty.
    ipv6ready, I think your suggestions are way off. It was those little sausage things, we've ascertained that much, it's just the "mystery" innards that I'm not sure about. I'll ask them next time what it is.

    I am Korean so I get fixated by certain word association when it comes to food and I agree after reading what you wrote again. I heard noodle and immediately went to what most people ask me.

    I've found a picture on the computer, but it's basically the same as those cheese ones linked to above. If you look at the picture at the top, you can see the little sausages. In real life, they weren't that bright and I think the yellow one is pumpkin, the purple one is sweet potato and the other one was described as just "rice", it's not in the picture but it's what I had with the sweet potato one.
