Korean Food!

It seems like I’ve been going on a food fest these past few days that I’ve been eating so much, I gained a bit of weight. Think I need to start exercising again to work off the few pounds I’ve put on. Anyways, I’ve always loved Korean food and here in Brunei, there are not many Korean restaurants and those that I have been to are not that satisfying and they don’t serve pork.

I just recently found out that there is one restaurant that serves pork so me and my sisters decided to try it out. We ordered half of the things on the menu and were quite satisfied with it. The pricing was just right and the food came in a large amount that we could barely finish it all.

We had the jajangmyeon (black bean noodle) but my sister was so fast, she finished it before I could take a picture of it ): We also ordered the Kimchi Chigae (Kimchi stew), samgeopsal (pork bacon strips) and I had the noodle with squid cooked in red bean paste. If you’re someone who can withstand very spicy food, this dish is best for you. It was a bit too spicy for me as I don’t really fancy spicy food.

As most of the things we ordered are spicy, my nephews who wanted to tag along, could not eat them. They had the sweet and sour pork instead. That was my favourite dish so far. They even cooked it together with papaya, nata de coco (coconut jelly) and cucumber. The meat was so sweet and chewy and the sweet papaya and coconut jelly went really well with it. Of course, there were side dishes. The side dishes included Kimchi and pickled radish.

Overall, I was quite happy with the food I ordered and was thinking of bringing my friends over there to try. Can’t wait!
