Whenever I visit my parents in Daegu, my mother always sets aside my favorite fermented cabbage kimchi so I can take back to my place with me. You might think I’m hogging my family’s kimchi, but fortunately for me, I’m the only one in my family who likes it.
Kimchi, a fermented vegetable dish, is a traditional dish that accompanies every meal served in Korea. There are many variations in recipes and forms, using different vegetables such as cabbage, radish, and cucumber.
Korean dishes are notoriously tricky to pair up with wines. Due to aggressive scents and a medley of intense flavors present in typical Korean meal, pairing them with wine is not as straightforward as it does with Western dishes.
The city of Busan announced that it would open “Doran Doran”, a village restaurant based in the mobile fishing village where you can cook and sell local specialty seafood, on the first floor of the Idong Fishing Village in Gijang-gun located in Icheon-ri, Ilgwang-myeon, Gijang-gun.
Japchae is usually treated as a side dish in Korean cuisine. But serve it over rice, and this savory and slightly sweet dish of stir-fried glass noodles and veggies becomes the showstopper it deserves to be.
