So I'm biting the bullet... [Sep. 8th, 2005|05:45 am]

[mood |hopefulhopeful]

Yeah, I'm taking a Korean course for those with prior background.

Apparently in the regular first-year course, the non-background students felt psychologically intimidated by the people with obvious Korean background, not only by their presence, but also by the way they would pick up things just that bit faster and understand the spoken components much more easily.

So this second-year course was created, thereby reducing the pressure. You must pass the interview to get in, mainly to ensure you aren't taking it as a bird course or something. Apparently one of the students is not background, but he spent two years in Korea teaching English and studied Korean on his own, so he was permitted in.

Awesome. So now I will finally be learning something of my heritage, after all these years of denial.

After all, wasn't fitting in the thing to do? Integrate?

Better late than never, I suppose.

Heh, apparently in the Korean restaurants, mul naeng-myun is the most popular dish! For some reason, it's never really been a favourite of mine, but having cold food is very nice in this weather!

Seaweed! [Apr. 13th, 2005|02:19 pm]

So! Who knows at least two kinds of seaweed? Kim, miyok, dashima! Bwa ha ha! Okay, I only learned the third one officially today.


So, my mom made seaweed chips with the dashima.

Basically deep-fry pieces of the dashima and then coat with sugar. Mm...iodine.

Okay, so this is slightly off-topic, but I suspect I would rather enjoy Islay single-malts (Scottish whisky, for those of you who care).

Muk? [Apr. 12th, 2005|03:45 pm]
Korean Youth in the GTA

Hi, i'm not at all Korean either, but i'm a big fan of the food :D
there's a restaurant on Yonge between Finch & Steeles called "Chung Gi Wha" who's fare is Korean and Japanese.

They used to serve this appetizer everytime i ate there and I've become addicted to it, and would love to try and make it myself (probobly with little success). According to the lovely waitress who works there, it is a korean appetizer called Muk. Which is really nothing too fancy. I believe its just bean curd with a special spicy soy sauce, but i'm wondering where i can buy this type of bean curd? the asian supermarkets i've been to don't seem to have it.

Also, does anyone know of any other restaurants that regularly serve this appetizer?

here's the questionnaire and picCollapse )
