Ever since my trip to South Korea, I’ve grown a liking towards Korean food.  My mouth has been watering for some good Bulgogi, Bibimbap, Ddeokbeokki, etc.  It’s come to the point where I dream about the food I ate on Korean Air- what people usually refer to as “yucky plane food.”  Well, I’m going to have to disagree with that statement because I no longer fear planes and plane food… Wait, before I get any further, I must mention that when I was little, I used to puke on planes from the motion and the food was so flakey and gross that I could barely look it before I felt sick.  ANYWHO, now I feel differently about planes and their food.  I’m actually looking forward to the next time I go on a plane and have to eat food!  Lol~ that must sound weird but I DID devour everything on my tray on the plane.  Even the people sitting next to me watched me curiously- can’t blame them.

So, sporadically throughout my days, I have sudden cravings for Korean food.  Let’s start with Bulgogi.

Now, I usually don’t eat beef… and I can’t even begin to describe the sick feeling in my stomach when I first saw Bulgogi.  A bunch of little shreds of raw beef meat sizzling was so gross to me!  BUT, I promised myself that I would be very open-minded in a different country.  So, I stuck a little piece of the cooked shreds into my mouth… and a wonderful relationship began.  Kekeke… even today, I refuse to eat any beef products except Bulgogi or the little pieces in Bibimbap.

My next largest craving is… BIBIMBAP.  Oh Buddha is it good!  I need to have this as part of my diet!  I learned that it keeps girls in-shape- exactly what I need. 😉   On the plane, I was afraid that I would spice myself out, so I put very little hot sauce in my Bibimbap and the Korean guy next to me goes “more sauce more sauce!  needs to be very very spicy to be good!”  I go “but i can’t take too much spice.  my tongue hurts.”  He goes “this sauce is nothing compared to real hot sauce in Korea!”  LOL~ great guy he was… Ever since, I put lots of hot sauce in my Bibimbap!  Kekeke…. that is, if I EVER get to eat Bibimbap again!  Soon!  Gahhhh~

And I forgot to add to my beef list: Korean BBQ.  Man am I biased lol~  I used to think Korean BBQ was like… Bobby Flay BBQ- but then I realized that they are 2 separate things.  I love making the Korean BBQ… And omgah… I can’t even begin to describe what is so delicious about it.  It’s something that people have to try to know what I’m talking about.  All of the flavors just mix perfectly in the mouth, like magic!

Lastly, it’s not a food… but I must mention it because I crave it as much as I do the foods- BANANA UYU.  Most people think that the concept of banana milk sounds disgusting, but I assure you it is NOT.  It tastes like a banana smoothie~ and I would love to gulp down some right now… fo real~

Now that I’m done ranting about my cravings… I must figure out a way to satisfy them.  I COULD head to an H-Mart, but did you know?  THERE ISN’T ONE NEAR ME.  T_T I’m so sad now…
