Have you tried Korean food?

Therefore I conclude that Korean food isn’t that bad. Though most of their dishes are spicy, some are just mild or manageable. I challenged myself into not saying no to Korean food for my short trip to Seoul. Except for the quick toilet visits, nothing serious happened after feasting on their local delicacies. The picture above is a chicken galbi. That gooey cheese on the side, heaven. Have your fill. :)

I didn’t know you like spicy food Anna-san. But yeah, Koreans love anything spicy. You know, it was freezing cold in Seoul and my hands were icy and while on the taxi, the driver, a 78 year old woman, touched my hand with her unbelievably warm hands. It’s because of the spicy food, I bet. :)
@sol_cee no, not yet. some former students of mine did that. i think i can endure the spice and eat the whole pack but it should be in an hour. by the way, samyang is a noodle cup in Kuwait way back 1986 and i usually have a cup of that and a can of Pepsi for my snacks when i had my duty.

I love Korean food! We love going to Korean bbqs where we cook our meats on the table top and we get all sorts of kim chee and other pickled vegetables . . . along with rice and soup. I love kim chee fried rice . . . oh I crave it now!

@sol_cee That is her name? That's so funny! I guess it is supposed to be pronounced more like GIM chee. Yah, a lot of their foods are spicy, garlicy, and red . I can't handle spice like I used to . . . so moderate would be enough for me too.
It was trendy two decades ago to go to Korean restaurants for all gatherings from my workplace. Anytime we had a farewell or end of year party, it must be at a Korean restaurant. Tell you the truth, I was all geared up to try out Korean food (well, their comedy and romantic movies at the time were so wonderful), but I was disappointed the first time, the second time, the third time, and etc. These days, anyone says, Korean foods, I sigh discreetly.
My Japanese friend said that Korean food started to get famous in Japan only 13 years ago, after the Korean novela ‘Winter Sonata’ became a hit among the Japanese, young and old. Since then Korean restaurants started sprouting everywhere in Japan.
