Crave Alert: Misutgaru

If you happened to grab some patbingsu this past summer, you might have noticed a dash of brown powder sprinkled on top. No, it wasn’t sugar. That, my friends, was actually misutgaru!

Misutgaru (미숫가루) translates to “roasted rice powder.” It is made from steamed rice, grains like barley or beans, and other nuts that have been dried, roasted, and then ground. Misutgaru is typically mixed with cold water in order to create a healthy drink that has a nutty taste and slightly grainy texture. Just think of misutgaru as the Korean equivalent of horchata.

Korean Food USA: DaMoim

“Da Moim” translates to “coming together” or “gathering” in Korean, and there is nothing better than to gather with family and friends to enjoy a delicious meal. For Jae and Kristine Lee, owners of Korean fusion restaurant DaMoim in Annandale, VA, this was their vision. Not only do they offer have flavorful food, but with a modern decor furnished with dark colors, it’s also the perfect environment for people to come together.

Korean Food USA: Woo Lae Oak

Some people are skeptical about the quality of food when they hear “chain restaurant,” but upscale Korean restaurant Woo Lae Oak, also known as “The House of Return,” has proven these stereotypes wrong. The first Woo Lae Oak to open in the U.S was in Los Angeles, California (it’s now closed), but it soon expanded to Illinois, New York, and, just recently, in Virginia. The popularity of this restaurant has been on-going since it first opened. Each of the Woo Lae Oak restaurants have a sophisticated and chic décor, but it’s not overwhelming to the customer. People can come in for a fancy event, or for a casual dinner with friends.
