Other Awesome Korean Food Extras
28. Nurungjitang (누룽지탕) – scorched rice porridge – Although this is often sold as a separate dish, a lot of times nurungjitang will be offered as a freebie at the end of your meal. If you’re at a Korean restaurants that serves rice in a stone pot, you mix hot water into the stone pot to make a type of rice porridge. As awesome as that sounds, you’ll be glad to know you can order this at many typical restaurants in Korea.
29. Hobakjuk (호박죽) – pumpkin porridge – Ya’ll might have heard of juk (죽), rice porridge, but this is an awesome hearty variation made from porridge. It’s pretty darn simple. Just straight pumpkin porridge (and maybe a few rice cake balls). That’s about it. And you will love it. Thank you (Click here for image)
30. Gyeranjjim (계란찜) & gyeranmari (계란마리) – steamed egg casserole & Korean omelet – You’ve probably never heard of these because gyeranjjim and gyeranmari are simple Korean side dishes tucked away as footnotes on the menus of Korean restaurants. But even if your local Korean restaurant doesn’t offer these, you can still make these two ultra easy Korean foods at home. Check out maangchi’s recipe here:
