This week our Korean food fan is college student Maggie Lo in Hong Kong. She cooks Korean food for herself and sometimes for her mom. In the profile photo, she puts her cute cheek right next to my cookbook! Don’t we look alike if I borrow her glasses? I feel my right cheek is a little tingling now. : ) Check out her  photos of 2 kinds of tofu dishes and gimbap. All look great! I should make tofu pickles soon because I’m inspired by her pickled tofu photo! Nice meeting you, Maggie!


What is your name and where do you live?
I am Maggie, I am living in Hong Kong.

Tell me about the first time you ever tasted Korean food. Where were you, and what did you eat?
I still remember the first time I tasted Korean food when I was five years old! I ate Bulgogi with my family, it tasted fantastic!!

How often do you cook Korean food?
Nearly every day XD

What are your 3 favorite Korean dishes?
1. Small anchovies toasted with soy sauce and hot pepper paste
2. Panfried Tofu with Spicy sauce
3. Steamed Eggplant

What’s your best Korean dish, the one that everybody compliments you on?
Steamed Eggplant (Gaji-namul). Steamed eggplant is soft, sweet, salty, and meaty.
I serve my own version to HK people, while the traditional one uses Korean hot pepper flakes.
I stir-fry the sauce with garlic and scallions for 1 minute, to make it less spicy.
Must eat it with rice : ) !!!
Panfried Tofu with Spicy Seansoning (Dububuchim-yangnyeomjang)

Panfried Tofu with Spicy Seansoning (Dububuchim-yangnyeomjang). This is one of my favorites!!!

Tofu Pickles

Tofu Pickles. The sauce is made from apple, garlic, soy sauces, vinegar and dried mushrooms. It is perfect for people those who cannot tolerate spicy food : ) The sweet, salty and tangy brine makes the tofu very delicious!!
