Me in Korean Traditional costume "Hanbok"
No one can deny that experiencing good local food made anyone's trip even more perfect! This blog post, I'll be sharing you all about Korean food I've tried during my South Korea trip!
Bibimbap is korean mixed rice usually consist of your choices of meat or seafood, raw egg, seasoned vegetable, and topped with dried seaweed and spicy chili paste.
Jimdak is one of my favourite Korean dish! It's a chicken with potatoes, mushroom, and Korean style grass noodles in a dark mild seasoned soup. Yum ;P
Samgyetang or Korean ginseng chicken soup. A Chicken stuffed with ginseng and rice. This is a very healthy dish. Koreans usually eat it when they are sick and many of them love to eat it as it helps prevent sickness. However, there're lots of people I know hate this chicken soup because it tasteless. So if you're planning to try this chicken soup, you might want to add sesame oil and salt ;)
A BBQ Buffet. All you can eat! So many kinds of marinated meats and side dishes. I've tried pretty much everything!
Dak Galbi originated in Chuncheon city. Some people called it Chuncheon Dak Galbi. It is a mixture of a chunky chopped marinated chicken, cabbage, ricecake, onion and chili paste. Ingredients are all prepared in a giant hot pan.
As you can see, we've turned this into fried rice Dak Galbi by adding an extra rice. FYI: Thais eat rice with pretty much everything! The best bit of fried rice is the crunchy part that stuck at the very bottom of the pan!
Bulgogi hotpot is pretty similar to other hotpot but this one they add korean style flavorful marinated pork or what Koreans called "Bulgogi". You could also have it grilled, but I personally prefer to have my Bulgogi boiled in a hotpot with lots of vegetables. It's healthier!
This might sounds strange but my all time favourite korean food are these side dishes. Korean seasoned veggies like kimchi, seaweeds, bean sprouts, dried anchovy, spinach, sweetp otatoes and more. If you have been to Korea and tried their food, you would probably know that Korean veggies are so fresh with a little sweet! I can eat them everyday without getting bored!
Korean street food is not to be missed! Tteokbokki or rice cakes with red spicy chili paste sounds a little too conventional for korean street food. This time I've tried this new menu a "Cup Toast". It's a pan grilled buttery toast with ham, cheese, egg and onion. I gave it 10 out of 10 for the taste. It's definitely my guilty pleasure, very very yummy but so fattening! Anyway, I didn't eat this everyday okay! So there's nothing wrong to try something like this once in a while!
And that's a wrap for my Korea trip! See you all next post. Have a great night!
