Bulgogi, Bibimbap And One Brilliant Cooking Class

If you’ve read my blog before you’ll know all about my love of food, especially my new-found love of Korean food. So imagine my excitement when I found, quite by accident, cooking classes for foreigners in Seoul. I immediately booked a class, excited not only for the experience, but also so that I could start to recreate my favourite meals at home. After all, I will at some point go back to England, and if I don’t know how to make Bibimbap by then it will be a disaster.


A Lighter Bulgogi Japchae (Korean style beef and noodle stir-fry)

So this dish is kinda a Bulgogi/ Japchae hybrid. Bulgogi is a Korean beef dish- marinated beef stir-fried in a sweet sauce with some vegetables and Japchae is stirfried sweet potato noodles and vegetables in a sweet sesame soy dressing. However mine is minus the high fat, high carbs, sugar and noodles. _MG_0646 With the help of aloe noodles (or kelp noodles) this dish gets slimmed down, and I use stevia to replace the sugar. I didn’t use sesame oil because I don’t have any, but if you wanted a more authentic flavour, I would suggest you add some to your sauce.


Where to Eat in Seoul?

If you are in Seoul there is NO way you are going to be hungry, food can be found everywhere!, from a Fancy Restaurant, to Street stalls to a MiniMarket where you can grab some Kimbap or a canned Coffee...

But there are some places you might don't want to miss!

The 1st one I would like to talk about is "Bulgogi Brothers" 

Voyage to Ulleungdo, Gem of the East Sea

Over Chuseok vacation, I headed to Ulleung Island, a destination I had been dreaming of visiting for quite some time.  Situated in the East Sea (or the Sea of Japan to all of you living outside of Korea), Ulleungdo is an island that promises visitors spectacular scenery, tasty seafood, and a chance to relax far from the chaos of the mainland, which is what I was most looking forward to on this trip.

Korean Ramen

Dumplings, soju, grilled ribs, stews, chicken and lots of kimchi were on the table this week. We’re starting to get the hang of Korean food, and discovering what we love, and some things we don’t. Last week, we concentrated on restaurants around our neighborhood, Suyeong and Gwangalli Beach, but these dishes can be found on just about every corner of Busan.
