I'm not sure if I've mentioned this before, but I'm a big BIG fan of Korean food. The Boyfriend and I have K-food at least once a week. Sometimes twice a week.
I even have a growing lot of Korean ingredients in my pantry as I have started cooking my own K-food at home too.
I often send pictures of my homecooked lunch/dinner to my mum (often Korean or Japanese dishes) and she said to me the other day, "Are you Chinese or Korean?" Oops!
Anyways! Today I am sharing about my recent craze for budaejjigae, also known to many as Korean army stew at the busy Darac.
I blogged about Darac before, where I shared about how I didn't enjoy the cheesy buldak but seeing how this place has been so highly raved about, I decided to give them a second chance.
The budaejjigae is really perfect for upcoming, cold autumn or winter nights. I'm going to try the cheesy kimchi stew next, as I love my cheese in every dish! ;)
The meat patties are juicy, succulent, and so full of flavour! I reckon Darac does one of the best tteokgalbi's in town, my other fav place being Mahn Doo.
I live so close to Darac, I'm there every now and again whenever I'm craving either one of the three dishes above.
my first experience was a let down, I'm so glad I gave Darac a second chance. I will continue to return to Darac, I just won't order the cheesy buldak haha. :P
If you know of any other places that does good army stew, bibimbap or tteokgalbi, please do let me know! I always love trying new K-restaurants. :)
Have a great week ahead, everyone!
