I actually got inspired to make this dish from a version of a kimchi soup I’ve always been making. This is not dakgalbi if one were to argue it’s origin….just some chicken stir-fried with kimchi. It is a quick dish to go with plain rice for those days you don’t wish to spend time in […]

Wow, it has been a long hiatus hasn’t it? The last two months has been a whirlwind of crazy, what’s more the little ones had a bad stomach flu and was puking literally everywhere and on everything. I had to be careful about what they eat before they could ingest like solid food again. Not […]
I saw this recipe in maangchi and was intrigued by such a wonderful name, Royal Korean Court…a dish that has roots way back in history but has gone though a lot of modern changes and adaptations. These rice cakes are very popular in Korea and they come in all shapes and sizes. They are even […]
Here’s a simple, almost no fuss recipe for a banchan dish. While this is called ‘sesoned spinach’, I have found that you cant exactly use any sort of spinach especially since a lot of Asian vege are just labelled ‘spinach’ in English. To get as close to the original look of the dish, I think […]
Like I mentioned in my previous post, the objective of making all that kimchi was so I could cook up dishes like this! Kimchi dumplings or mandu as it’s called in Korea. I don’t know if calling it mandu means it needs to have a specific shape like rounded tortellinis as is the norm shape […]
How can one not do kimchi for Korea month? Kimchi is like the heart and soul of Korean cuisines and although it’s mainly served as a side dish, kimchi is very versatile and can be converted to many other dishes. Households in Korea even have special fridges just to keep their kimchi because when there […]
I thought I’d kick off AFF Korea month with this popular street snack. Fried chicken in a gochujang sauce. They’re like buffalo wings Korean style. Gochujang is a savory and pungent fermented Korean condiment made from red chili, glutinous rice, fermented soybeans and salt.
Here’s another rice recipe….I say this conflictedly because I’m starting to get sick of rice….not that there’s anything wrong with bibimbap….I am currently in my confinement month and have been eating mostly Asian food that goes with rice. Under normal circumstances, my household would never eat rice 3 days in a row. To have to […]
I thought I would end theme week with a trip to where else? A Korean restaurant of course. This one in particular is located at Jaya One. My husband was the one who recommended it. This is not Korean barbecue, it serves contemporary cuisine, frankly I don’t know what that means……still.
I should apologise for the quality of this photo, my camera doesn’t take very good close-ups at night. *sigh ‘Soon Du Bu’ Jjigae means soft tofu stew or soft tofu beef stew. ‘Soon Du Bu’ itself means soft tofu but I’m not sure if ‘jjigae’ actually means beef stew or just stew. I had one […]
