After hiking Mt. Mireuksan, Lara and I were famished and enjoyed a meal of mulberry bibimbap at the bottom of the hill. At many meals, there are bright green peppers in sauce as a side, so sweet and tasty... but if you don't know the difference.... I spent the next 5 minutes in pain... and I like spicy food! Ouch!!! It was funny! H-O-T
Rice, seaweed, and various fillings go into this colorful, flavorful, and adeptly made dish!
I had chicken for the first time in 4 or 5 years. What a taste difference! Somehow Koreans get it: they know better than to drown their food in pesticides or put their food sources in pens full of their own sh**. They recognize and value their farmers. There are no walmart bargains where you get really cheap food from another country, be it unripe, chemically produced, or genetically mutated. Food is expensive and the money goes to those who grow and produce it. Food tastes like food, fresh and delicious. The difference in flavor alone with fresh food grown locally is astounding. Yeah, I spend $2 on a an apple, but it was the tastiest apple I've ever had. It's like eating fruit from the Caribbean (when I lived there), fresh off the tree, no poison. So delish.
So this chicken was weird, it was fried and flavorful. Usually meat grosses me out, but I've started eating a little bit of it here--not often, maybe once a week or so. I feel better knowing 50 chickens weren't in a 2x2 cage mired in their own feces and yum, that chicken was my dinner--disgusting, and think of the traumatic energy carried through the food source into your own body. No wonder America is a violent, hate-filled place, fear-filled place, look how we treat our food and the people who grow it. You imbibe all of that fear horror into your body in the form of some sort of energy, since all of life is connected.
Enough lecture, sorry.
I ate some Korean chicken, and it was really good! The food here amazes me with its healthy qualities, low calories and fat, and yet, it is full of flavor and satisfying feelings!
...can't get enough Korean Food!!! :-))
