Soul Food in Seoul

I recently found these photos in my archive. I went to Korea in September 2009 for a conference. I was asked to speak on  a research my organization is conducting concerning the health status of migrant workers in Asia. Seoul is one beautiful city and I would love to live there. The food of course is amazing. I love Korean food. Unlike Filipino food, Korean food always surprises. The side dishes are actually my favorite. The spices and flavor excites your taste buds. The photos below are of the side dishes they served over lunch.


 from the side dishes alone I was already full.

creative cooking to make my family eat more greens



tonight's spread: grilled fish, ginataang sigarilyas and melon



sukang paombong with sili (chili) for the grilled fish :)





Hide the greens in a coconut milk, a little meat and spices. This is how I sneak in veggies in the food so my dad can eat them. lol Diguised as bicol express with less spice the lowly and funky looking sigarilyas tasted good for dinner.
