Kimchi Noodle Soup

This is one of my favorite instant Korean noodles, Kimchi Noodle Soup.

You can cook this how you would cook instant noodles as directed on the packet’s instructions. But here’s how I do it:

  • Cook the noodles as directed on the instructions; while the it’s boiling and just before the noodles are about to be fully cooked, add a raw egg. Don’t stir the raw egg. Just poach the egg.
  • Serve in a big bowl with a small bowl of kimchi on the side
  • Break the poached egg and start eating
  • For the kimchi, you may choose to eat it on the side or add some in the soup — it’s really much more delicious that way.

Spicy level is very low compared to the Shin Ramyun. The soup definitely taste like kimchi. It’s good to have in the pantry for those late nights midnight snack.

Kogi Beef Bowl

Hubby had been wanting for us to try this place. Chris was out with the family, while I was still at work. They decided to try out this food place, without me. (sad face)   But instead of eating there, they decided to have it for to go and brought it home. (happy face!)  

I didn’t really have much expectation since it just looked like some other rice topping meal, with meat placed over rice. It wasn’t what I expected when they told me it was Korean. I looked around for my side dishes or even my kimchi. I didn’t find any. I thought about getting some from my own fridge. But I wanted to try it on its own. 

I poured the sauce that it came with.  It looked like mayonnaise and sriracha mixed together or it could be mayo and gojujang.  I couldn’t really figure out which one, but it did taste more like sriracha.  It has a bit of heat, but not as spicy as I would have hoped. So i’m glad that hubby had the jalapenos on the side. I was able to add them on topd and I was happy that I did.

The first bite was good. The taste was good and I love the crunch from the raw cabbage. It created a nice texture to what I’m eating. I also liked that the portion of the meat was ample for the amount of rice that was in the bowl.  Sure, this isn’t what I expected from a Korean food.  However, this did remind me of a korean burrito I had when we were in the keys. Oh, guess what? They do actually sell korean burritos too. But that’s something we will have to try out next time.  

I wouldn’t really call it as Korean food.  More like, American-Korean fusion.  However, I will definitely have this again.
