My Korean Favorites

Favorite Korean Foods:

Samgyupsal (삼겹살)

samgyupsal I’ll eat it anywhere, frozen or fresh preferably with grilled garlic, ssamjang, and pachae, pachae sauce and bean sprouts..

Gopchang (곱창)


I’ve had pork as well as beef gopjang, but I prefer pork best. I also like makchang. Preferably grilled with garlic, but I do like gopchang in a soup.

Street foods:Spicy Rice Cake(떡볶이), Red bean fish (붕어빵), Tempera (튀김),  Fish cakes 오뎅

I can eat each of these once a week. I love them especially squid tempera and the fish cake broth.

Busan 호떡 

busan hoddeok

On the International Film Festival street in Nampodong Busan there are street carts that make 호떡 and cut them open and dump and seed and sugar mixture in them. It’s the best I’ve had. They have many carts selling it, but only of them is good. I always go back there.

Korean Fried Chicken 

korean fried chicken Fried chicken might not be a traditional food in Korea, but I love the way Koreans fry it. There is one place that does a great hot garlic chicken and another that does perfect whole fried chickens.

Favorite Drink:

Maesil (매실)


It’s a juice made from a type of green plum. My favorite type of maesil is the one they serve at Bonjuk.

Favorite Actor:

Hyun Bin (현빈)

hyun bin 2

I only like it when he plays a rich, self-centered man whose life is changed by a woman.

I seriously watch these 4 dramas over and over again. I have watched others but these make me wish they would make second seasons of each.

1. Secret Garden (시크릿 가든)
