We’re back in Los Angeles and I couldn’t be happier. The weather is awesome. On our trip back from Korea, I brought some fresh miyuk, fresh ground gochuggaru, dashima and a bunch of other things – much to the chagrin of the MR. =P He will never understand why I insist on bringing things they already sell here, but hey – it’s fresher! I promise.
Although the food in Korea is amazing, there are quite a few places in K-town that could compete with what they have in the Motherland. The other day the MR and I were out and about and dropped into one of our favorite little restaurants in K-town, Olympic Kalgooksoo. I hadn’t been there in quite a while, but the taste was just how I remembered. Dak Kalgooksoo is one of my favorite foods.
The cold moo kimchi and regular kimchi.
I prefer the spicy red sauce…
We got greedy this day and ordered mool mandoo as well. The ajooma later told me that their steamed mandoo tastes much better, but I don’t know – I’ve always liked their mool mandoo for some reason. It’s a matter of preference I suppose.
Anyhow, I haven’t been in the cooking mode for quite awhile now. Except for the basics, I haven’t really gone out and tried to whip up anything new.
While in Korea, my cousin made me this wonderful Andong Jjim Dak. I will definitely try and replicate this in the new year. Hope everyone’s year has been going well so far. Until next time!
