Don’t you love home cooked food?
Assorted veggies, or “namul”, chwee namul which is some kind of vegetable that I don’t know the English name and fiddle head ferns + roasted asparagus.
Kimchi soup. Yes there a plain soup version rather than a stew. Much lighter and basically broth and in this case with clams added.
One of my favorite Korean foods, mook. Somehow jelly is made out of acorns but I swear it’s not disgusting but it is actually flavorless. But somehow with a soy based sauce, extra crunchy seaweed, sweet bell pepper and pea shoot, it becomes amazing.
Yakshik, which is sweetened sticky rice mixed with sugar, soy sauce, pine nuts, raisins and chestnuts. Usually there are dates added but I just like the plain version. I realize that the descriptions of all these foods don’t sound so appetizing, but when you are used to it you love it!
