Thanks for the info. So for my first time out, when we go to the Korean restaurant, we should only order ONE bottle of Soju for the four of us to share?

That looks so good! YUMMMY!

@KaeTee yes only order one to begin with… The soju I have is one of the strongest but if I’m not mistaken all soju contains atleast 15 or 16% which is a whole lot more then a glass of wine.

@auroratasya I tried her sweet potato rice and some other things but I don’t remember which exactly. There are many things I want to try but sometimes it’s quite a challenge to find all ingredients. For some things I have to go to other cities to get it.

All the korean people I know here are my age so they only cook basic stuff (they’re guys :p)
Actually last week one of them made me fried rice which was nicee !! He also brought me some kimchi before…
Here the only thing u can find is instant noodles… there was just this one supermarket which had some black bean paste… other than that nothing :frowning: not even kimchi :’( that’s why I tried doing it on my own… it seems like mine will turn out hotter than the one my friend got me :stuck_out_tongue:

@dudie yeahhh maangchi is great I did most of the food after watching her videos. … ohh I even tried making the egg rolls which turned out great!!

@Wafaahs, that looks yummy. You make me hungry now…lol! I’m so lucky since I move here (suburb of Seattle) there are a lot of Koreans live here, so many Korean restaurants also here. I’ve tried various of Korean foods and it was delicious.
@Dudie, if you are vegetarian, maybe you should try Korean tofu soup and you can ask for non spicy. My 10 years old daughter loves it. Or dukkbogi (Korean spicy rice cake) but maybe it’s a bit spicy for you. For ramyun, I prefer ottogi brand.

Stahp making me hungry.
Korean food is super delicious. I always go to the korean BBQ & Hotpots in my area.

@julievilla Can’t wait till the Korean restaurant here opens it’s doors next month hopefully. Never been to a Korean restaurant before. Thanks for mentioning tofu soup, reminds me I still need to look for a nice recipe to make it. I tried to make one before but that didn’t turn out as good as I had hoped. I want to try tteokbokki anyway but I guess it might be a bit too much indeed. They do sell those rice cakes here at an Asian Supermarket so maybe I can make it myself one day and make the sauce less spicy.

Yes it looks a bit less work than the traditional with napa cabbage. I usually use the recipe from maangchi, with the glutinous rice flour to create the paste and add daikon radish and carrot cut in small pieces.
I just don’t have the good coarse pepper mix.
In stores where I am they sell it mostly with cabbage not napa cabbage.
Either way Kimchi is delicous in soup if you want the kick in particular in winter. I add it as last to not cook it. Old kimchi is used in Jjigae, the kimchi stew!
I’ve also done kimchi pancakes, it’s yummy as well!! :yum:


I often order my Korean spices (and a few other things)from Germany a company called Handokmall, I don’t have any good places around me and Germany is in the EU… I love different kinds of kimchi and even oi-kimchi /cucumber kimchi. Haven’t tried it in pancakes yet but I really should… :slightly_smiling_face:


Mark Wiens experience food cooked underground in Korea. Enjoy! :wink:

The largest Korea Town, is found in Germany?
