Korean Bites: Lunch of Japchae, Kimchi, and Squid Kimchi

Thursday, June 12, 2014

I'm out of food at my house... well at least food I'm willing to eat. Because of this, I decided to venture up the street and visit Market World (Han Nam Market)! I love Market World because they carry all of my favorite Korean and asian dishes. I also love that they freshly prepare the dishes, so they are very authentic and have that "my Korean mom made it" taste. Anyways, I decided to take a couple pictures and should you what I decided to have for lunch!

First off, got to have the kimchi if this is going to be a proper Korean lunch. Market World is great because they offer different kinds of kimchi...everything from whole cabbage kimchi to radish kimchi to cucumber kimchi (my fave!). They also offer them in different sizes! This size in particular is the medium size. They have a smaller jar and a larger jar as well!

Yummy! Love my kimchi :) 
Next up is "seasoned squid". I'm not sure what the proper Korean name is for this dish, but that what the label says! They charge by the pound also! This has to be one of my all-time favorite ways to eat squid!

Look at that tentacle! 
For my carbs, I picked out the "seasoned potato noodles". These are glass noodles that are made from potato starch! I chose this dish because it's been pretty hot where I live and you can eat these cold (I actually prefer them cold!)

I love that this dish comes loaded with vegetables!
I know what you're thinking...where's the rice?! This was more than enough food for me without the rice :) I know this was a random post but I thought I'd include some more "lifestyle" type of posts! Let me know what you think and what you're favorite Korean/asian dish is! :)
