Korean Cuisine

I love Korean cuisine and my favorite Korean dish is the spicy tofu and seafood stew, which is especially delicious during the cold winter months. Another reason I love Korean food is the appetizers or side dishes that are served with every meal called, banchan. These little morsels of meat, seafood or vegetable dishes are served tapa-style and they can be spicy, sweet, salty, crunchy, soft, or chewy.

This photo was taken last week at my favorite neighborhood Korean restaurant called, Natural Tofu. It is one of the many banchan that came with the meal. I do not know the name of this dish but it is a type of black beans that have been deep fried, tossed with a sweet barbeque sauce and sprinkled with sesame seed. Yummy!! If you love asian food like I do, you should check out Singapura Daily Makan Photo by Keropokman who blogs Singapore Daily Photo.

So tell me about your favorite food. What do you like to eat?

j'avoue qu'a NYC je prefere la nourriture de l'europe de l'est (dans little odessa, j'ai trouve le meilleur goulash de ma vie). Mais à NYC on peut faire le tour du monde de la nourriture, c'est un plaisir.
J'ai decouvert dans un restaurant italien les pennes à la vodka, un delice. Bon j'arrete, je commence à baver ;o)

I acknowledge whom has NYC I prefer the food of Eastern Europe (in little odessa, I have find best the goulash of my life). But with NYC one can make the turn of the world of food, it is a pleasure. I discovered in an Italian restaurant the pastes with vodka, a delight. I stopped good, I start to dribble ;O)
