Seoul-Busan Backpacking 2011 – Food (Part II)

Hi everyone.

It’s a super busy day at work (school), but I feel the urge to blog about this today. So when the idea comes, I should quickly put it into writing, or else it will go missing. LOL. Plus, this weekend I will be busy with some Kpop related event (shall enlighten that to you soon), so I hope I can finish this post today.

As I said in my previous post about food, finding Halal food is not an easy task in Korea, unless you’re in Itaewon, but it’s not an impossible task to do too. If you know how, you can actually find food that Muslim can consume.

Be confident of what you’re eating, if you have a slight doubt about the ingredient and/or the utensils used in the process of making the food, then I suggest you not to consume it. Of course, avoid the obvious, such as meat (any kinds), ham, et cetera.

#9 on 50 Things about Korea – Bibimbap (비빔밥)

Ref: My Name is Kim Sam Soon ep 11.

Yeah, again I’m referring to Kim Sam Soon. No need to guess, because it’s the second-best k-drama for me, after Goong. 😉 In the scene, [18:26 onwards] you’ll see how Sam Soon enjoyed her Bibimbap that it’s almost impossible not to make your mouth water. Seriously.

my own version of bibimbap, made it MYSELF. 😉

The name Bibimbap simply means “mixed rice” ( bibim – mix; bab – rice). Well, that’s basically it. The rice is mixed with various ingredients, mostly vegetables,meat,gochujang (chili paste) and sesame oil. It may not sound delicious, but once you’ve tried it, you can’t forget how good it is. But mind you it’s advisable to eat it when you’re REALLY famished, if not you might not finish all of it.

Tried making my own bibimbap, and thankfully it was a BIG success. But it was such a hassle trying to prepare all the ingredients, as I wanted it to be perfect. If not, it can be made with whatever ingredients that you have, such as leftover veggies, chicken et cetera.
