Korean Food

You can find more about the culture of the country through its food, place and people. The most common way to learn more about it is to eat what they have to offer. Here, I give you Korean food as part of their culture.

I’m so back! I’m so sorry if I took so long to make another post due to some arrangements that I had to deal first and the house renovations are not a blogger friendly, but still, I love that our house had a good feel to it.

Anyways, let me go back to my topic tonight. Korean food and Resto. So, last Monday night we ate some Korean food here in our city. You can find lots of foreigners here in our city, from Americans, Japanese and lots more. However, for the past 10 years, I can see that most Koreans had stay here longer that they were able to have their own restaurants now. It’s a good thing for us people who wanted to taste different cuisines from different countries. Here I give you what we ate that night.5Our order consisted of Sangyupsal(pork belly) & lettuce. Japchae, ramyun, Β gyoza/dumplings, and egg soup.

4.jpgThese are the side dishes that were given to us. Starting from down left to top right. We have dumplings, sweet&chili pasta, bokchoy(pechay), fried tofu,stir fried eggplant, Kimchi, baby shrimp sweet&spicy (sorry don’t know what they are called) the last one is green onion leaves with hot chili paste.Β 1.jpgThis is what Sangyupsal looks likes. It came with lettuce, chili paste, some onions,egg soup and spiced oil. You can eat it like so, but most commonly, they eat it as a lettuce wrap. You put the pork in the lettuce, plus spices and kimchi, then eat Β it whole.3.jpgΒ  This is Japchae, it is a noodle dish but it taste sweet and little bit salty for our preferences. The noodles are so chewy and the vegetables are so crunchy as well.

All in all, we had a good time in this restaurant and I can say that their food were good as well. I can’t say that is really as authentic as it can get, because I don’t know how a traditional cuisines in Korea taste like. I tasted different versions of these food, and I couldn’t tell which is which. Still, getting a taste of what Korea has to offer and available in the Philippines, why not try it. This one, I will give 4 out of 5 stars. Good job!

      I think if you like strong flavoured dishes, and hot cuisines, you will like this one as well. I have tried several food from different countries, and I have my favorite or two. How about you, what’s your favorite dish?

      1. Yes, I have similar preferences too. I’m from Kerala, India. My favourite dish is Chicken Biriyani – Have you heard of it or tried it? Chinese cuisine also I like, but I think the ‘chinese’ we get in India isn’t authentic. It’s altered to suit our tastes. In fact, anything non-veg can fill my heart as much as my tummy πŸ™‚ I love trying different food!

        I love Chicken Biriyani, my cousin made that when she went back from Dubai and I love the spices. I love curry, too. I think most Korean Resto here do the same as well, they suit it to Filipino taste buds. That’s why you can only tell the difference when you taste it in the original country.

      3. Glad to know you loved Chicken Biriyani. I can have it 5 times a day and still want more! I hope I can taste authentic chinese and korean too, someday! Anyway, great post. Do put up food posts whenever you try new things, I’d love to read atleast, even if I can’t have! πŸ™‚
