Weekend Food Post

and it's another Korean food post after last week's Korean food cooking. This time though, we ate out at our most favourite Korean place : Ko Hyang (which, by the way is hometown in Korean) at Gardens Mall.
Bibimbap for me and Zaini. I usually either have this or rice with Soon Do Bu Jigae (soft tofu stew). Whole lot of veges in the bibimbap! A sizzling Dolsot (stone pot) Bibimbap  is nice too.
Raimie wanted Tuk Guk (rice cake) soup which ultimately he can't finish. Not that it wasn't nice but that boy is a picky eater and doesn't each much anyway. For me personally though, I like rice cakes served like the ones below:
Tuk Bokki that I insisted to have. Spicy! There's Garaetuk (chewy cylindrical shaped rice cake), a bit of fish cake and some slices of cabbage and carrots in there. This makes a great snack.
Another favourite, a hit with Zaini and Raimie is this Ojingeo Bokkuem (spicy stir fried squid with vegetables) and it comes with a bowl of rice.

The complimentary banchan (side dish)  here are nice too, and I love their kimchii and the Myeolchi Bokkeum (stir-fried dried anchovies) but they are becoming stingy with it. Ko Hyang used to give refills of them but no more. (Or maybe they'll give it if we ask nicely? Hihi)

and at home, we simply had Beef Masak Lemak Cili Api. Why this dish s photo warrants to be posted up here? Simply because it's been ages since I last cook this.

We'll be healthy and eat a simply grilled fish with budu (fermented anchovy sauce) for tomorrow's lunch. *^-^*

Anyway, after all this indulging, I'm planning to burn off the calories tomorrow by doing a 15K run. Wish me luck! xD

  6. haven't tried Ko Hyung so cannot compare but at least this one is less commercialised than those in shopping malls..

  7. the restaurant is named Seoul, they served more than 10 types of banchan and they take initiative to refill them for us.. but i think this is a non-halal one, too bad you can't go~~ :p

  9. @SK,
    I was just became really interested at the restaurant you mentioned, then saw your comment below it that it's non-halal. :(

    It's hard to find good Korean place that's also Halal certified. That's why no choice, have to learn cook them myself. xD

  13. Great looking Korean food! Bet they tasted just as great. You know that rolled rice cake is similar to the Chinese Chee Cheong Fun. Yeah?

    But the winner here is that beef masak lemak! Hands-down victory! How about the recipe, eh? No need too detailed, just a gist of it will do. Thanks in advance. :D

  16. Wah!! I want that Beef Masak Lemak Cili Api!!! When will you be cooking for me? : D

  17. @Foong,
    Ko Hyang is good. Good price too. But go before the lunch/dinner crowd starts because the place is popular (the one at Gardens, lah)

    When are you coming to my house? xD

  18. Ooh looks yummy.. I don't usually have Korean food though.. I think I've only had Korean food a handful of times.. But Japanese food, haaa, Japanese food I love.. Hehe

    ReplyDelete
  19. @Bella,
    And I love them both! After eating non-spicy Japnese food, hot Korean food can be awesome. ^^
