Hi. I'm a new member (noob) at Asian Fanatics, and I joined because I found that I really like talking about my culture and heritage -- informing, shocking, disgusting, and infuriating. Recently, I discovered that a lot of my foreigner friends have had questions about Korean food that they wanted to ask but didn't in case they sounded racist or undereducated, and it made me think about what other people think, as well.

I also decided to write up an information post about the weirder, gross-sounding, sort of scary Korean foods. But before that, I wanted to know what the people here are interested about.

My question is: do you have any questions about Korean foods? Is there a particular dish you heard of and were freaked out/intrigued by? I assume a lot of people want to know about dog.

Please reply!

Nope. It's an acquired taste. Not all Koreans like Kimchi.

I'm not an expert in Korean foods myself. I eat them on occasion but I mostly eat american food. You should go check out some forums or YouTube. The latter would probably be most helpful.

did you get response from Koreans? 'cause I don't seem to find any here. Koreans are usually cool about it though. Korean foods are not really that popular in U.S. just like German foods are not popular. If you ask me to name any German foods, I probably can't hehehe


Please don't eat dogs.


oh yeah that's an insult lol. that's cool though.

My recommendations are Korean BBQ, soon tofu(spicy tofu), dol sot bibim bap(mixed rice with vegetable and beef on hot stone), seolung tang(ox leg bone soup), dak nalge(sweet and spicy hot wings), deok boki(spicy rice cake), and galbi jim(sweet marinated short rib). Koreanized Chinese foods are really good also. I recommend jjajang myun(black bean noodle) and tang soo yook(sweet and sour pork....it tastes lot better than American style in my opinion).

Korean food is amazing. I love kimchi but I'm also addicted to their fishcake side dish, dumpling soup, cold noodles, and of course, the BBQ.

I heard some Koreans eat live octopus.

Does that mean what I think it means ?

Is the poor critter still squirming around on your plate,
before someone has to stab at it and put it out of it's misery ?

Jeepers, Creepers !
I think I'd have nightmares all night long if I had to do that.

I have since come across this video which confirms my worst nightmares.

Apparently, some people do eat octopus live.

How to make/season the fish-cake thingey that sometimes come served in the Ban-chan lineup.

Another form of fish-cake in /fish sticks in Korean Odeng ... reminds me very much of a Singapore-Hakka dish ... Yong Tau-foo, or (in pinyin) Yang Dou-fu.

hello nomad 822. The side dish is called, 오뎅볶음(odeng bo kum) Posted Image It's really easy to make.

Ingredients: 오뎅 thin flat rectangular shaped fish cake(300g whole packet), ground garlic(1/2 table spoon), sesame seeds (1 table spoon), 물엿corn syrup(3 table spoon), soy sauce(3table spoon), water (3 table spoon), pepper (1/4 table spoon or just a little), 고추가루ground red pepper(1 table spoon), 1 root of green onion(small size), sesame oil (1 table spoon).

Preparation:
1. flat fish cake: cut them into 1x2 inch
2. green onion: cut it crosswise about 1 inch long
3. put everything (except green onion, fish cake, and ground garlic) into one bowl and mix 'em well.

Procedure
put 1~2 table spoon of oil into a frying pan and stir the ground garlic for 1minute at medium heat. add flat fish cake and stir it up for another 3minutes. add the mixed bowl into the flat fish cake and stir it up for 5 minutes. If you want it spicy, you can add 1~2 pieces of jalapeno(cut it crosswise)

Final product should look like this:
