Are you fascinated with Korea? Do you always get jealous and hungry while watching some Korean drama/ TV show where Koreans eat all their delicious-looking food? Do you have your mouth watering while reading entries about food on koreataste? Then I have a great solution! Try making some Korean food yourself!! Impossible, you say? Then you should definitely reconsider that!
As I have mentioned in my first entry, there are not many places in Lithuania where one can buy exotic products and ingredients from Asia. However, the meal I am suggesting is indeed simple and doesn’t require any exquisite stuff. The meal I am talking about is… kimbab! I am pretty sure those who tried making it themselves will support me.
I found the recipe on the internet and it is really not a problem finding one. So most probably I am not going to tell how to make it, since it would be copy-pasting. I’d rather tell about my experiences making it myself.
I’ve already mentioned that it is an easy meal that doesn’t require much work, so, to be honest, I don’t even remember how many times I’ve made it. I clearly remember that the first time I made it was with my best friends. I was very excited since it was the first time of me making something Korean. And the result turned out to be brilliant! It was indeed tasty and besides, we had a lot of fun making it. After several weeks I’ve decided to make kimbab for my family. My brother was super excited since he is also interested in Korea and its culture and it would have been his first time eating something Korean. My parents, on the other hand, were something skeptical about it, since they always preferred traditional meals aka ones containing meat and potatoes. I wanted to prove them wrong so I put double effort in the preparation if kimbab. And what do you think? My whole family really liked it!!! Though there was one dull moment, when my father asked whether it is possible to eat kimbab with black Lithuanian bread (for those who don’t know, Lithuanian black bread is really filling and doesn’t go with such meals. Shame on you, dad!). I’ve also made kimbab for my all relatives once. They are something similar to my parents, not very open to new things and meals, but they all liked it! So, it is proved by my kinsfolk that kimbab is really tasty. Easy to prepare and tasty to eat, what else do you need? (lol it rhymes)
All I can add is that you can add some ingredients on your own, according to your needs and preferences, it still will taste great!
