Havent tried Korean food but I hear great things.
For me it's HOT POCKETS all day, everyday.
Dude it's awesome.
They love their meat, but they also have vegetables in their dishes so it's not as boring as our food (IMO).
My all time fav East Asian food is a beef noodle soup from a nearby Chinese restaurant. I've literally had it once a week for the past year. The noodles are sticky and bright orange and the soup is just out of this ********ing world.
I used to be hooked on these Japanese sponge cakes lol. I would drive twenty minutes to buy a big box that would last me a couple of days. We also had a 24/7 Korean restaurant near where I used to live, and I would go there 3 AM in the morning for a sizzling hot bowl of Bulgogi. The good ol days.
This is now officially a food thread
You know Nurafshon,
My favourite dish is called Roz Bukhari. It's one of the signature dishes of my hometown Medina originally brought over by uzbek immigrants. It's rice cooked with lamb chickpea tomato and shredded carrots.
It's awesome. I do want to try the uzbek version one day to see if it's any different.
If you want a fascinating culinary experience - Korea is the place to go. It's way cheaper than Japan, smaller and more convenient (in terms of getting around) than China, but still plenty of stuff to see and do. My brother used to teach there and I went to visit for a couple of weeks and had all sorts of crazy food experiences there. Dog soup was actually one of the more easily digestible delicacies we tried. Silkworms and dried squid were much more difficult to swallow. And then there was the squid sashimi, which despite being completely decapitated, turned out to still be alive! However, our most deadliest meal was the fugu - or pufferfish, ya know that really poisonous thing that Homer Simpson once ate.
Anyhoo, when we weren't trying the crazy stuff, had some absolutely great meals in Korea... huge sushi and sashimi plates, barbeques and steamed rice dishes with all sorts of seafood and stuff on it. An to top if all off, once you learn where to go - it was actually pretty cheap. Absolutely love Korean food!
oh no you didnt...
I have this all the time
AFC = Asian Food Confederation
yep woofed it down as u could say!
Oh my, you guys have this raisin+rice thing going on as well? Never understood the appeal lol
But the rest looks good
Cool. Very nice. Sounds like you had a great time and experience.
If one wants to get the true experience, you would have to travel to the country and not just order from a random take out restaurant. Majority of the Asian food restaurants I have seen in Sweden or Denmark have Swedish or Danes working in them. lol
Screw that. Not that I am prejudiced or anything
So did you still eat the squid shashimi even if it was alive?
totally agree with u mate on actually having to travel to the country to get the authentic experience! I doubt they could serve live squid/octopus in many restuarants in the states, because it's actually pretty dangerous. People actually die eating it. The tentacles have suction cups that stick to your face, and even the back of your throat as u try and eat it. It's a life and death struggle between predator and prey! I tried a couple of bites just to be game before having them boil the rest lol... wasn't my cup of calimari.
Haha I thougth we Iraqis are the only people who do that.
lol whoever started that shit is hopefully rotting in hell. Worst combo in culinary history! Worse yet if everybody in your family likes it.
But yeah, if you do some digging, you'll see that a lot of the food around the region is the same. Take "kalepache" or "pacha" (arabic name). I know that Iran/AFG, Armenia, Azarbaijan, Turkey, Gerorgia, Bulgaria and even some W-Euro countries eat it. I'm sure Arab countries have it too.
Edit: forgot to ask, are there any Iraqi restaurants in Vancouver? I've heard Iraqis make a mean fish dish. Don't know anything about it, but I wanna try it.
I think you mean whoever started that his soul is eternally blessed
For those of you who don't have access to your moms, and hence no Persian food available, here are some easy-to-make home recipes. I cooked the follwing four recipes this week, Tahchin (the first video) was the only one that took some effort, the others were just too easy.
one of my all time favorites lol
will def'n try making that.
thanks for the vids
I think you mean Masgouf .
Not sure if there any Iraqi restaurant in Vancouver, but once you get to Dubai, you'll find it.
Yeah we do. In Iraq, we have people eating Pacha for breakfast.
Ya man, there are more resturants in Saudi that sell Roz Bukhari than there are McDonalds. I'm from Riyadh and in our annual Cultural Festival its listed as one of our national dishes. The early Ozbeks and others that immigrated to Saudi before it was a kingdom contributed a lot especially food-wise for which we are always thankful.
Persian food is simply amazing- I lived some years in the DC Metro area which has several awesome Persian/Azeri resturants like Moby Dick, Shamsheri etc... I now always make sure I catch some Persian when i head to the Two Seas.
