10 Mouthwatering foods from K-drama you'll want to try now
The world of K-dramas often involve food scenes that have you scrounging through your cupboards for something to eat. All the food looks amazing and delicious. I'm a huge fan of trying all sorts of new foods and have seen so much inspiration for trying out new things come from my favorite K-dramas. We found 10 foods that everyone should try at least once in their lifetime from abalone to egg rolls. There is nothing better than trying out a new food or recipe and chowing down while watching your favorite K-drama!
1. http://1hop.co/oujcu/ywpln/">Jeju Island Gatsby - Abalone
Abalone is also known as the sea snail. It's hugely popular in Asian countries but hasn't found its ways into popular food choices in North America. Abalones have an incredibly light flavor similar to that of calamari and when pounded, breaded, and cooked properly are one of the most delicious things you will ever eat.
2. http://1hop.co/oujcu/jrwsq/">Bride of the Century - Roasted Sweet Potato
I love the scene fromhttp://1hop.co/oujcu/jrwsq/"> Bride of the Century when Choi Kang Ju discovers the delicious taste of roasted sweet potato, which he has never had before. He is a very cold and closed off guy whose personality begins to shine when he tries this soul-comforting food. Not only are roasted sweet potatoes amazingly delicious, but they are also very healthy for you.
3.http://1hop.co/oujcu/ndvsm/"> Pinocchio - Toast
Okay, we've probably all had toast in that past, but I bet you've never had toast this way before! This is one of the most memorable scenes from Pinocchio, the so-called "toast kiss" where Choi Dal Po takes a bite of the toast in Choi In Ha's mouth. Who wouldn't want to try toast in this new and innovative way?
4.http://1hop.co/oujcu/meuje/"> Pasta - Pasta
This K-drama series made me so hungry. I love pasta but have not had the opportunity to eat it in the incredibly refined way prepared at Choi Hyun Wook's restaurant. I think it's an experience everyone should have, eating handmade pasta from someone who has been trained in Italy on the art of making pasta.
5. Witch's Romance -Wine and Jokbal
Mmmmm pig's feet. Jokbal is a pretty traditional Korean dish made with garlic, chili peppers, lettuce, kimchi, red chili paste, and soy sauce.If you are willing to take the leap this is definitely a food worth trying out. It's meaty and succulent with a slightly smokey pork flavor and condiments that perfectly compliment it.
6. http://1hop.co/oujcu/nurka/ ">Rooftop Prince - Omurice
Omurice is basically an omelet made with fried rice and topped with ketchup. It's delicious and easy to make. If you're looking for the ultimate in comfort food along with easy cooking, then this is the food for you. Pretty much anyone can make it, and it's especially great for those times when you're running low on supplies at home.
7. http://1hop.co/oujcu/dyklq/">Playful Kiss - Ramen
I have rarely seen a K-drama that hasn't had at least one delicious ramen-eating scene. And every single time I desperately want to be eating it alongside them. Playful Kiss is among my favorites for showcasing ramen because it is an upscale version of it. Handmade noodles, well-seasoned broth, and all the extras like roasted pork are added to the mix. One of the best foods ever created.
8. http://1hop.co/oujcu/nozaf/">My Love From Another Star - Fried Chicken
http://1hop.co/oujcu/nozaf/">My Love From Another Star had so many humorous moments, but this was among my favorites. Cheon Song Yi gains a taste for fried chicken and beer when going through a rough patch in her career. If you've never had real fried chicken before (I'm talking about handmade buttermilk batter and truly good and fried), you need to try it!
9. http://1hop.co/oujcu/nsedk/">Tomorrow's Cantabile - Dad's Restaurant
Absolutely everything Yoo Il Rak's dad makes in his restaurant looks like I could eat it every day of my life. Breaded meat, roasted meat, salad, eggs nothing is left out. If you're looking for some inspiration to help you cook a family feast or a big party, this is the show for you. You will be inspired to cook all sorts of amazing foods.
10. http://1hop.co/oujcu/gfkjt/">Boys Over Flowers - Egg Rolls
One thing I noticed when I first started watching K-dramas was how much Koreans seem to like eggs. They're velvety and soft, comforting and can have all sorts of different touches to make them uniquely yours. Inhttp://1hop.co/oujcu/gfkjt/"> Boys Over Flowers, they put a thin sheet of seaweed in it before rolling to give it that pretty spiral pattern. The possibilities are endless.
