Mamaling Reyes

This week our Korean food fan is Måmåling Reyes, a busy graduate student! She has been cooking Korean dishes since she was around 15 years old, and is very adventurous about learning new cultures. She found my website a few years ago and she keeps cooking Korean food for her and her family. She said: “The other day I made Bukkumi. Gosh that was so good! :) I couldn’t find any black beans at one of the Korean stores here so I just used regular black beans and added honey. It was chewy with texture/crunch. :)”

What is your name and where do you live?
My name is Måmåling Reyes and I from the the island of Guam….A United States Territory :)

Tell me about the first time you ever tasted Korean food. Where were you, and what did you eat?
I can’t recall the first time I tried Korean food but I know that I’ve always been fond of the cuisine. I remember making Bibimbap when I was much younger, maybe around 15 years old. I came home from school and made it as an afternoon meal. My mom and brother tried it and they loved it too. I guess I just love to try new things and very often search for cooking videos to follow. A couple of years ago I was searching for Korean food and your videos popped up. From there I’ve been a fan and love Korean food more than ever.

How often do you cook Korean food?
Maybe about 3 to 4 times a month. It’s probably not much but with a busy schedule and more than just me in the house I have to slowly introduce it to my family. Hahaha!! ;) My girlfriend finally found an earthenware pot and now I want to make everything I can with it! :) :)

What are your 3 favorite Korean dishes?
My top 3 Korean dishes are the soy bean sprout soup, spicy soft tofu soup with seafood. and the BBQ ribs (LA Galbi).

What’s your best Korean dish, the one that everybody compliments you on?
Spicy Soft Tofu Stew with Seafood (w/beef) :) :)
