I know it is popular in Southeast Asia, but is it something you would find in China, Korea, or Japan?

Korean Here.

Yes. Eat it once a year or so. It is one of the greatest foods that is possible to eat ever.

I need to go on a binge eating vacation through Southern Asia, before I die. That sounds so delicious, it's making my mouth water.

I assume it isn't as common as red bean paste though.

<-- Korean

Yes red bean paste is ridiculously popular. Koreans definitely eat the yellow paste variant. But it's definitely uncommon and I don't even think they have a name for it.

The Chinese even had a god for mung bean curd . . .

. . . until Bruce Campbell killed him.

Then one night it happened, disaster struck
A rumble from below, the Chinese were stuck
An old chinaman prayed, for the loved ones he so cherished
Asking the saint of curd, to protect the souls who perished

Guan-Di is his name
Guan-Di is his name
Guan-You Guan-Me Guan-Di
Guan-Di is his name

It took me a while to get used to the dessert menus in Southeast Asia.

Nothing but bowls of beans! :eek:

They are tasty though. :p
