Korean idols are known in Southeast Asian countries as well as K-dramas and K-variety shows. I am not a huge fan of K-pop but I am a fan of Korean variety shows. They have a lot of cooking shows that keeps your mouth watering. I started watching 3 meals a day and Running man in 2016. I know I am so late considering the fact that running man has a lot to catch on. Whenever the casts of these two program starts to eat Korean cuisine makes me feel like drooling LOL 🙂 I know I am not the only one.
So yesterday, I was able to visit a Korean diner with my best-friends and of course we immediately checked the menu. I am familiar with TteOkbokki, Bulgogi, Kimbab and Kimchi soup but we did not try all the dishes.
The one that we had I believe is what they call Rabokki, the combination of ramen and tteokbokki (korean rice cake).
I have been craving for this. It tasted a bit sweet and spicy, you can choose whether you want it to be 2x hot or more but I chose mild as I want to taste and distinguish the texture of the Korean rice cake. It has cabbage leaves, spicy sauce, hard boiled egg and sesame seeds on top. It was perfectly cooked and heaven in my mouth 🙂

KImbap is a rice roll like sushi. It has veggies on it with pork.
I was excited to try this out but I was not a big fan after one bite. It tasted a bit weird and I wanted to dip it with soy sauce, maybe because my tongue is not used to but I will try to have some next time.
Though the Korean diner we went to did not use a Korean beef, still it was worth it. The one we had was a marinated pork and grilled it.
And the moment of truth, my mouth was watering during the grilling time LOL it was so good though and I couldn’t get enough. It is good when the rice and galbi with hot pepper paste on top is wrapped with lettuce and eat the whole thing. Trust me, it is a bomb! 🙂
Hmm who doesn’t love to eat :). Regardless of some of the ingredients that were used for these delish meals aren’t originally from South Korea, I am satisfied although I did not try all their menu but there’ll be next time. I would love to try some Indian food in the future.
That’s all for now.. God bless!
