About Last Night

My home and my new workplace is now far from my favorite Korean restaurant so it’s not really very easy and convenient for me anymore to go and eat Korean food. Last night though, I really can’t suppress my cravings any longer.

So of course, the very tasty and colorful side dishes or banchan (반찬) were served first: kimchi, fish cakes, pajeon, green beans, pickled onions and potato salad.

The main dish is haemultang (해물탕) or spicy seafood soup/stew. It’s made with a variety of seafood and some veggies. It’s a very comforting soup/stew specially now that winter’s coming. 🙂

How ’bout you? What foods do you crave for nowadays? And do you like Korean food, too? I’d be glad to know… 🙂

Happy Thursday/weekend, homo sapiens!

Korean Food

Korean foods never fail us… 🙂

Galbitang

Korean food has become really popular for the last few years and I can really understand why. I work for a Korean company and yes, we get to taste their food every now and then. But my friend and I usually go together in a Korean restaurant near our office and yesterday was one of those days.

Yesterday’s meal was galbitang (갈비탕). It’s become one of our favorites this year (I think?) and it’s really good. It’s a beef ribs soup which I think has very little ingredients served in a stone pot/bowl but it really is very tasty. Even tastier when it’s spicy.

And of course, I have to mention the free side dishes. Kimchi, kimchi pancake, fish cake, cauliflower, spinach and pickled cucumber were served last night.

Happy tummy! 🙂
