golbengi, or baytop shell in Elsewhere in Asia/Pacific: Cooking & Baking Posted December 15, 2007 · Edited December 15, 2007 by Batard (log) “Bai –Top Shell” is just another word for Whelks. "Whelk is a delicacy popular in many countries, particularly in Korea where we have a dedicated sales office. Whelks or Bai Top Shell are actually fished in UK waters and are supplied live and fresh into OceanC for manufacturing."My local HanAhReum sells golbaengi, which is really fresh conch. I think they mix up the terms in translation, because they tag this as Bai shell. Personally, I'll take a pass on the canned shellfish when there are fresh alternatives. Especially living .5 mile from Sabor Peru.
