Hello, all. I was first introduced to Korean food, much against my own will. Why? I was enlisted in the army, and sent to South Korea for a year. I didnt think I would ever "get used" to the food. But now that I am back in the United States, I miss REAL South Korean food! I know the recipes I am looking for, but dont always know how to describe them. And I most certainly dont know how to properly spell them in Hongul (not sure I even spelled that right). I miss walking off base to "mom's" She knew exactly what we all ordered when we walked into their shops :) Here is my attempt at naming my favorite foods:
1) "Beef Bulgogui with white sticky rice"
2) Yakki Mandu (I'm pretty sure this website is the "right" mandu)
3) Orange citron tea (jelly-like with orange rind)
4) sweet rice cakes
5)...and there is a rice cake-type cookie thing we also made, but like I said, not sure how to describe it, and definatley dont know the Korean name for it. :(
