Korean Food???

I love it! I like it better than Indian food which I really like.

I am going to town today to see my Broker and it just so happens there is a Korean Market close by who has a small restaurant with the best Korean food I have had outside of Korea.

The kimchi is awesome! I cannot make it as good and their BBQ kicks butt. I will get a togo plate and eat again for dinner. My wife will not touch it so I guess she gets a microwave pizza :lol:

    I really like kimchi but it has to be very mild. Can't do the hot stuff.

    Also love bulgogi

    Most of the people in the company I work for are from India (Vadodra area mostly) and I have had some very interesting meals when they come to visit. Like said above, I don't do much spicy food after I had stomach surgery ~10+ years ago so they have to tone it down. I think most people love Chinese food, at least our Americanized version of it. I found I love Thai food, particularly the peanut oil products. I have started cooking with it some at home (on the rare occasions I am not eating from a box).

    Yes. In fact, there is a Korean restaurant in the little hick town near me. Korean lady, Married to a retired military officer, opened it about 10 years ago. They live near the college town about 15 miles away. She hosts many Korean college students and she?s a hoot to be around.

    We love it, too, Sam! Big time!

    We went shopping yesterday at a really nice Korean market, H Mart, which has some food shops and seating for anyone wanting to eat-in. We're thinking about going to a favorite Korean restaurant nearby there where you cook your own food at the booth's table top.
    What's next?

    Wish there was a Korean place near me! Living in the northern Michigan sticks makes international cuisine a rarity of extinction-al proportions. I do drive a KIA and have attended a few county picnics where many Amish farmers bring pot luck to the tables! :D

    Those Amish women do make a dandy potato salad and their fried chicken would make a certain Coronel turn over in his grave! :lol:

    This place is a Korean Market too. I got some goodies after I fed my face :D

    I brought home some leftovers and big jar of kimchee for my wife(She cannot stand it so I guess I will have to eat it).

    Love kimchi. It was available 3 out of 4 meals on base in Iraq. None to be had on base in Africa.

    There is a very authentic Thai place, somewhat outside Mountain City.

    (Monsoons.) Owner Praey Uhn, does a fantastic job. Grows her own peppers out back. If she knows you, and that you can handle it when you say, "make it spicy." It rocks. Get some "Dragon Sauce," out of the crock on the counter. :o :shock: :?

    Chicken Basil/Vegetable, Thai shrimp with Vegetables, etc etc.

    OMG God, my mouth is watering. It has been a while since I've been there.





    If anyone is near Richmond, I Highly recommend Elephant Thai. Freakin' Awesome!! Killer food.






    You guys are killing me.

    Extreme NE TN/W NC ya'll. 😁

    I like Kim Chee, but there are 0 Korean restaurants here, so no real experience (as if a US Korean restaurant is much like one in Seoul). I do like Viet Namese, Thai, and Indian, and Chinese if my fav (though not so much silk moth larvae, tumors, or rooster combs. I would probably like some, and maybe not everything, just like other cuisines.

    Once stayed at a motel in D.C.

    There was a restaurant attached in the lower level.

    Didn't realize it until I was in and seated ... all Korean food and run by Koreans.

    The dish titles ment nothing to me so asked for something that wasn't to spicy or hot.

    Server made suggestion ... rice dish with an egg on it and some sort of meat.

    I took two bites ..... washed my mouth out with two glasses of water and left.

    Walked outside, looked down the street as hadn't eaten for 6 or 7 hours of travel.

    Saw the "Golden Arches" about 4 blocks away.

    Jumped in my car and drove over, had a couple of burgers, fries and a diet coke, LARGE ... hoping to kill the taste in my mouth and get some nourishment.

    I'd eat dirt before Korean food. :D

    Spent a year in Thailand .... tried their food a time or two and that was more than enough! :cry:
    No fan of chinese or mexican food either. foreign food can stay in their countries.


    I prefer good old AMERICAN FOOD ... give me a chunk of dead cow, rare to medium rare on the grill, a couple of spuds covered in butter, some Texas toast. A little salt and pepper and good to go!
    :D

    I eat K food all the time, bulgogi, be bim pop, sa'dong pop and noodles, lettuce wrap, buckwheat pancakes loaded with onions, mandu, and especially shindae (soondae), list goes on.

    What makes K food so good: Garlic (maneul), Onions (Yongpile), and Ground Red Pepper (Gortoo).

    I made a note to self once. It was regarding foreign bathroom habits. There are cultures of people on this planet that have some very disturbing potty practices. Disturbing to my western learning.

    I tend to shy away from those same cultural cuisine's! No poke at any Asian\Korean foods. Just reminding myself about a note I made many moons ago.

    LOL

    If I followed that train of thought I would have starved to death years ago, but I get where you are coming from.

    As far as "potty pratices" I would rate them from 1 to 10 with 1 being like the US. I have been where all these were used.

    1- Flush toilets with toilet paper
    2- Flush toilets that don't work that well
    3- Port a john in AUG at FT Polk LA
    4-Squat hole with paper and water
    5-cat hole you dug in the woods and rest your cheek on your e-tool
    6- Outhouse with a sit down but open dung heap full of flys
    7-Pooper with a cut down 55gal can full of diesel and flys crawling all over your * in 110 degree heat
    8-Squat hole with water only and you ain't got no paper
    9- Squat hole with nothing but the turd the guy before you left where your left foot goes
    10- wherever you feel the urge like on the street or in the grocery isle.

    Year ago I had a Korean neighbor who would hang a raw chicken on his clothes line until it was as gray as a shingled house on Cape Cod...
