    Korean food

    Damn, you guys are crazy. I like to try things. I'm glad I tried it. I'm also glad I don't have to eat it daily. I'll be back for more.

    Two words:

    Kim Chi.

    Not a cuisine I'm interested in, Thai though...their black bean sauce is KILLER.

    Lots of interesting flavors. Last time I ate Korean was at this little hole in the wall in Houston and got some fish stew. I could easily get used to it every day.

    I can't remember what I drank with it. Some kind of really, really light beer. The name didn't sound Korean to me. It went great with the food. (Edit: Hite beer)

    It's good stuff- no my favorite cuisine, but right up there in the top 10, for sure. Hard to do right for vegetarians, but it can be done. There's neat new place that just opened here in West Philly that has numerous vegetarian options (not just Korean, but their kim chi tofu is awesome).

    Beef ribs BBQd Korean-style (Kalbi), Kim Chi and soju make for an awesome dinner.

    But kim chi smells terrible, similar to the sauce I'm forgetting the name of that's in filipino cuisine. I can't eat things that smell bad, like cilantro.

    oh- sorry about that. Actually, the kim chi they use smells fantastic (at least to me...). Then again, I love cilantro..

    I do have a sensitive nose and a sensitive palate. I tried Dosa and turned my nose up at it. I'm not a "picky eater" but I'm a super taster so I can't stand cilantro, beets, alcohol, anything with a hint of bitter. Took me weeks to get used to eating seaweed (sushi rolls) now I crave the stuff. I give the wasabi a pass though, oh, I also hate ginger, I always forget to tell them to omit it from the plate. Doh.

    I'm a supertaster too- my nemesis is anything with an exoskeleton, as well as anything in the phyllum mollusca (easy to avoid since I'm a vegetarian...).

    Richin, that doesn't look appetizing, then again neither does curry (well it does to me...)

    MTB, my BF who is not a vegetarian turns his nose up at shellfish, the majority of fish, crab, shrimp etc. Not a supertaster though, he drinks coffee black. Gack.

    MTB, how does raddiccio (sp) taste to you? It tastes horrifically bitter to me. Also I think Korean cuisine is seriously lacking in meat-free dishes so that means I would starve in one of their restaurants. 20 years as a vegetarian has taught me a lot about where I can get enough to eat besides salad and dinner rolls.

    I had kimchi for lunch today. This Korean market a couple miles up the road sells their own, in unlabelled pint jars. I took 2 today (often I get their pickled whatever that stuff is sushi rolls too but not today). Anyway, I get back to the office, plop the 2 jars on my desk, start eating one, and I notice the other is... fizzing. A lot!! So I ate the one faster and then opened the other and it practically has whitecaps on top. And then I ate that one too.

    Radicchio does taste bitter, but that's a good thing, IMO. I can see where some might not like that, though. There are a number of bitter greens (escarole, frisee, endive, etc.) that I think add zing to a salad or soup.

    I agree that it's quite difficult to find vegetarian alternatives in Korean cuisine, although we have several places here (including lunch trucks on campus) that do cater to the likes of us!

    A quart of kimchee in one sitting? Dang. My belly would explode.
    I love the stuff but it is a treat for me. Closest oriental market is in the city, an hour away.

    Love trying new foods, just ate at a decent (according to some vietnamese people in my neighborhood) Vietnamese place the other day (two of them in the neighborhood) - very good. pho soup, good stuff

    Really want to try some kim-chi - but would prefer under guidance from some local residents - will have to ask around - hate to go eat something at a place that serves all asian cuisine - that all tastes the same (so spoils the new tastes and nuances from individual cuisines from where you get some bad stuff and you think - this is bad!!! btw - I love ethinic stores and festivals - I'm the worst person going thru any food line or grocery place asking - what is this and how does it taste - and yeah have made a coupla funky purchases lately - I LOVE my new little Russian deli around here - most awesome meats and CANDY - and Jellys!) and so get a bad taste about trying anything more - and from what I see locally just doing the logical google - I'm not seeing much that inspires me (Korean that is, sorry long winded tonite).

    Just did the "big walk" in my new neighborhood and picked up many menus - have several that look good (couple of good greet menus) - oh yeah and the bladoodle of chicken wing and pizza ones - however - they freaking deliver till 3:30 or 4 am - I have not had anything like that delivered since I was in college. And will not likely have ever again either (but nice for options, hehe).

    OK, back to Korean.

    A restaurant I love - that I thought was "Korean" - had a big write up in the newspaper too a couple years ago about how it's "Korean" and they have 22 types of homemade noodles, etc) is in two locations in the city - they specialize in noodles (as well as the other usual Chinese/Japanese offerings - Kung pow (sp) chicken,etc - nothing I normally order) and several of the noodle varieties are rice noodles - many styles - I love rice noodles. They also do udon which I like as well. And I basically order my noodles and what meat(s) if any on them and the vegetables I want with it - and "stock" if any and HOW HOT I want it - of course I want those freaking little dried red snaffoos on my stuff with others as well. Kinda cool - I can plan my own meal.

    But like I said - I am unsure as to the nationality, not that I want to be country specific of things like that - but it's good for identifying some unusual items that I may have eaten - but I totally enjoy it.
