"Yeah, I would use more salt like Maangchi said or I would use thin soy sauce in place of the fish sauce. Sometimes I cook for people who don't like seafood (this drives me crazy, but that's a different story) and I use the soy instead. Thin soy sauce, sometimes called 'light soy sauce', is a soy sauce that is lighter in color than regular soy sauce, so it is good to use in soup if you do not want to change the color. Do not take the word 'light' to mean 'low sodium', it refers to the color only and this soy sauce is actually a little saltier than regular soy, I think. Anyway, if you want you can substitute two tablespoons of thin soy sauce for the fish sauce and then add the the teaspoon of salt that it calls for in the recipe."

"Your food sounds like it would be absolutely delicious! From appetizer to desert, it sounds like you have a whole menu planned! You must be a Filipino food expert. It does sound like it would be a really long trip for you. If you don't make it this time, then maybe you can make it next time. :)"

"Hello 한식화이팅, Yes, I love Korean food and I am also from CT! I am glad to see you here as well! Thank you for the compliment on the photos! I agree, I hope more people have the opportunity to be introduced to Korean food also. I think it is really an under-appreciated cuisine in this country. We have plenty of Chinese, Japanese and Asian fusion restaurants, but nowhere near enough Korean! That is why I am excited about everything Maangchi does, it is really helping to spread the word about Korean food and I will help her in any way possible. I was just up by Manchester recently, coincidentally. I don't really every go there though. There is a Korean restaurant in New Haven, but I haven't actually eaten there. I usually go when I am in the city, because there are so many. Although, with Maangchi's recipes, you can just cook at home, so there's really no need to have a restaurant close by! Anyway, thanks for you comment and have a great weekend! ryan :)"

"OMG! Take me with you next time you go! I speak Spanish! I can be your translator, haha... Did you get to try huitlacoche while you were there? I always wonder about that stuff... It looks so weird, but I heard it is really good. I love doing Mexican nights at my house. I make enchiladas, red rice, fresh salsa and other delicious food and then serve it to friends with home made margaritas or even better... palomas! None of that pre-made neon green bottled mix here! Another delicious Mexican drink I love is agua de jimaica. I just made some the other day. It is my favorite! http://www.gourmetsleuth.com/Articles/Mexican-Ingredients-1032/huitlacoche.aspx http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Paloma_(cocktail) http://cocktails.about.com/od/tequilarecipes/r/paloma_tequila.htm http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Hibiscus_tea"

"Wow is right! Amazing! It's a good thing all of the ingredients are readily available in New Zealand. Many times it seems people have difficulty obtaining some of them, but I can see you didn't have any trouble at all!"

"I love this! Thanks for sharing! I am always taking pictures of my food and my friends think I am crazy! ahaha, I don't care! I have some good spanish audio lessons that I can send to you if you want. You can listen to them while you are cooking at home. That way, by the next time you go on vacation, you will be fluent in spanish! haha... I have to tell you, now that I make Korean food all the time, I don't want to eat Chinese food anymore... Sorry! It's true! The tomatoes look amazing! So simple, but so delicious! ryan :)"
