My mom took me out to eat after my lasik surgery. It was hard to see the food but my tastes buds were working perfectly fine. It was seriously one of the best korean tofu stews I had in a while. You could pick from not spicy, medium spicy, spicy, to extremely spicy. My mom advised me to order the spicy one. The broth which I feel is the most important factor in a Korean stew was well balanced, hearty, and extremely flavorful.

We also ordered a serving of galbi which in Korean restaurants if you order 1 serving, they cook it in the back for you and bring on a dish. The galbi was nothing special but the soondubu was to die for. I cannot wait to eat there again.

My mom made me an awesome breakfast which consisted of Doenjang jjigae, chives and squash pancake, and a side of green tea rice.

The doenjang jjigae is a stew made from soybean paste with mushrooms, squash, leeks, and other various vegetables. It tastes very good and is soothing to eat. The chives and squash pancake is one of my favorites. I just dipped it in soy sauce and ate it with my rice. The green tea rice was the wow factor for me. It was the first time I ever had something like this.  The rice was tinted green and it tasted very much like green tea. It had a wholesome taste to it which was amazing.

Kimchi jjigae, literally translated into kimchi stew, is a traditional Korean dish. My mom made this with the obligatory kimchi of course, and also threw in some pork chunks, which taste amazing if stewed in the broth long enough.  I personally do not know how to make this how my mom makes it, but I would love to know how.

Here is a wikipedia article on kimchi jjigae. Enjoy reading and to those of you that have never ate this dish, i encourage you to try it.

Warning: For those of you that don’t like spicy foods.
