Thinking of Korean Food

This week I have been thinking of Korean food as I have been watching some Korean dramas.

As characters have meals together at home or go out to eat and order food, I have remembered some of the foods that I have enjoyed in Korea.

One of the things you see a lot of are side dishes. Most group meals come with a large number of side dishes.

Korean BBQ - Small dishes - Korean Food - Charcoal BBQ - Side DishesA very common group meal is BBQ that is cooked at the table.

Korean BBQ - Charcoal Grill - Meat on Grill - Korean FoodIt may be cooked over a large pot of hot charcoal on a grill that is place on top of it.

Korean Gas Stove - Tabletop Stove - Gas Stove - Korean FoodOr, they may use the tabletop stove that is commonly used in cooking of Korean food. The stoves utilize a gas canister for the fuel source. This can be used in a home or in a restaurant. Metal Chopsticks - Long Spoon - South Korean eating utensilsFood is typically eaten with metal chopsticks and a long metal spoon. Metal chopsticks are sometimes a bit harder to use since they do not have as much friction as wooden chopsticks. Some chopsticks are scribed on the end for better friction, but many of them are smooth. I will often use metal chopsticks at home as they are reusable.

Dak Galbi - Korean Food - Spicy Stir-Fried Chicken - Lunch in SeoulThis wonderful dish is called dak galbi and the meal starts by cooking down all these ingredients. Later after most of the meal is eaten, rice is added to soak up all the sauce and little bits of meat and vegetables. See: A Little Seoul Food

These are just a few examples of Korean food. I need to dig back through some of pictures and stop just sharing the same meals 🙂

Spending time in good company is also a very important component of a great Korean meal. I have good memories of many Korean meals that have been shared during my travels.
