This week our Korean food fan is Pailin Wongphanjalert from Thailand! She says there are many Korean restaurants run by Koreans in Bangkok and Korean BBQ has been getting more and more popular over the years.

When she visited Melbourne for a business trip 3 years ago, she went to a Korean BBQ restaurant. The taste was much better than the Korean BBQ that in Bangkok. She wanted to learn how to make such a delicious BBQ, so she looked it up online and found my website. Ever since then, she has been cooking not only BBQ but many other Korean dishes. Check out the photos of her kimchi, bossam, and dakgalbi! All look gorgeous!
