A few weeks ago at cooking class we learned how to make an amazing rib dish. I’ve never really been a big fan of ribs, but this completely changed my mind. They were tender and full of flavor. I can honestly say that it’s my favorite thing we have made at cooking class.
Yoogane (유가네), pronounced Yoo-ga-neh, is a chain restaurant in Korea that specializes in dak galbi (닭갈비: spicy stir-fried chicken). Yoogane is a favorite among foreigners and Koreans alike. It’s especially great for people just beginning to eat Korean food because the menu is in English and there aren’t an overwhelming amount of choices. Also, you’re sure to see some things on the menu you’re familiar with, like fried rice and ramen noodles. I always bring my friends that are visiting Korea here because it’s a nice, easy transition into Korean food. It’s also pretty inexpensive and very tasty! Continue reading →
Happy Hangeul Day! October 9th is the day Koreans celebrate their alphabet. It’s one of the best in the world and it’s definitely something to be proud of. Each letter has only one sound so if you really want to learn to read Korean, it only takes a few hours. I learned to read Korean in about 6 months, with practically no studying. I just kind of absorbed it.
I celebrated Hangeul Daywith my awesome Korean tutor. We went to 5 different temples. I learned a lot about the places we visited and a few new Korean words and phrases. One of the highlights of the day was seeing a flock of peacocks at one of the temples. They were so cute and it was such a nice surprise!
