- What is Kimchi?
- Kimchi is a traditional Korean dish consisting of fermented chili peppers and vegetables, usually based on cabbage. Kimchi has been cited by Health Magazine as one of the world's five "healthiest foods", with the claim that it is rich in vitamins, aids digestion, and may even prevent cancer. It is a popular side dish but is also often used as an ingredient in cooking other popular Korean dish, including Kimchi chigae(Kimchi soup) and Kimchi bokumbop(Kimchi fried rice).
- What is Tuk-bok-ki?
- Tukbokki is one of Korea's popular snacks that are loved by teenagers as well as adults.
It is made from garaetuk, a chewy long cylindrical rice pasta (or "rice cake") that is cut into many pieces and cooked with various ingredients. It is a stir-fry dish which is cooked with gochujang(red chili pepper paste) along with garaetuk, fish cakes and assorted vegetables such as green onions, carrots and onions. In Korea, this snack is commonly purchased from street vendors much like hotdog vendors in New York City. However, it can be found in Korean fast food venues as well as some restaurants outside of Korea.
- What is Bul-go-gi?
- Bulgogi is one of Korea's most popular beef dishes that is made from thinly sliced sirloin or another prime cut of beef (rib eye). It is usually marinated in a mixture of soy sauce, sesame oil, black pepper, garlic, onions, ginger, and sugar. This dish is often served to non-Koreans as a first taste of Korean cuisine. Bul is the Korean word for fire and gogi is meat, therefore, it translates into fire meat. However, it's not quite spicy in taste but somewhat on the sweet side.
- What is Pa-jeon?
- Pajeon is a traditional Korean-style pancake which is a very popular appetizer or snack. It is made with pancake mix batter, eggs, and green onions/scallions, served with a mixture of soy sauce & vinegar for its dipping sauce. To cook, the batter is poured into an oiled pan and fried to a golden crisp on a frying pan. Just like a pancake and one of the key to this dish is the egg which contributes to the crispness in texture. It’s nothing compared to pancakes most frequently found on North American breakfast tables as a regular pan of pajeon is big enough to feed three hungry mouths.
