Hansik (Korean Food)

안녕하세요 Chinggu :)

Hansik, is a Korean food. Hansik usually contains less meat than most traditional Western or Chinese cuisine, and features a wide variety of fermented foods, assorted vegetable dishes, and rice. It is very nutritious and is becoming more and more popular around the world for its health benefits. So.. Today, i would like to show a few Korean Famous Food.

Galbi is a Korean food such as beef ribs are cut short. In Korean, or galbi mean Kalbi ribs (short ribs) or the meat around the ribs. Sometimes, food can also be made using pork ribs. Kalbi be spiced or cooked without seasoning. When seasoned, usually chops soaked in sauce made from pear juice Asian origin, rice wine (rice wine), soy sauce, garlic, sesame oil, and sugars. This sauce can be made more spicy or more clear, according to taste.

Kimchi represents Korea's best known food. Koreans serve kimchi at almost every meal, and few Koreans can last more than a few days before cravings get the better of them. During the 1988 Summer Olympic Games, thousands of foreigners were introduced to it for the first time. Despite a reputation for being spicy, most people usually develop a taste for it, and many foreigners also find themselves missing it after returning to their home country.

Japchae is a stir-fried dish that combines sweet vermicelli noodles made from the starch of a white sweet potato, thinly slices of beef, and various vegetables. It is usually prepared with carrots, green onion, spinach, shiitake mushrooms and green peppers. Beef may be added as an option but may be left out to be served as a vegetarian dish. The noodles are gray when raw and turn almost translucent when cooked (thus given its popular nickname, glass noodles). When cooked correctly, they retain a chewy texture.

Bibimbap is a signature Korean dish. The word literally means "mixed meal" or "mixed rice". Bibimbap is served as a bowl of warm white rice topped with namul (sautéed and seasoned vegetables) and gochujang (chili pepper paste). A raw or fried egg and sliced meat (usually beef) are common additions. The ingredients are stirred together thoroughly just before eating. It can be served either cold or hot. This is one of my Favorite Hansik, i will always looking for Bibimbap everytime i had a Korean Food.

Last but not least, is my favourite snack Tteobokki or Spicy rice cake. Tteokbokki is essentially Korean rice cakes and dried fish cakes cooked in a spicy gochujang sauce. You can vary the spice levels by adding more water or less gochujang (Korean chili papper paste). i Love to eat Tteobokki while watching TV or Surfing Internet.

So, If you guys craving for all those Hansik you guyz can get it at any shopping Mall in KL such as Pavillion, KL Festival City, Mid Valley and many more. Just go and try you wont regret. :)
