TRYING WEIRD KOREAN CHIPS 0

Sara joins us to try these more unusual chip flavours. We had never seen them before and we wonder how long they will last in stores…

A note about YouTube. Firstly there is a subscribers glitch. Lots and lots of active subscribers are being unsubscribed from channels so make sure you are still subscribed to us here.

Also, as well as having a bunch of glitches at the moment, YouTube is also favouring videos that have interaction immediately. We’ve hardly ever asked for likes on YouTube before but now it seems we have to. So if you watch our videos, hitting that like button (and also commenting) really helps us out and determins if YouTube will suggest our videos to other viewers. Thanks!

HALAL KOREAN FOOD 0

We took the opportunity to film¬†some halal Korean food when we had lunch with friends recently. There are now more and more opportunities for Muslim tourists in Korea and Korea is becoming popular with Muslim travellers, especially those who are fans of Kpop and Kdramas. Korea is also considered a very safe place for Muslims to visit and live. It’s getting easier to eat halal food in Korea. Our friends also eat in normal Korean restaurants and just make sure they are eating seafood, not other meat.

TRYING VEGAN BURGERS IN SEOUL 0

Megan Bowen took us to Huggers, a vegan burger place, in Itaewon. The burgers were delicious. We are not vegans ourselves, but do try to cut down on meat consumption. Hugh really enjoyed his chili tofu burger, so I want to try and make it at home too.

Dilemma 3

Dilemma

I was always quite skinny growing up and into my 20’s, but due to health problems I’ve been on medication that causes some weight gain. Not a huge amount, but when you are used to being a certain size and then suddenly not being that size it’s a bit of a surprise. And suddenly not having jeans fit can be a rude shock. I’m much more sympathetic to those that have trouble losing weight due to genetics problems now.

While Hugh has been a stocky guy for most of his adult life, he was very skinny as a young boy. So much so that he was constantly in the hospital and eventually his family went to an oriental medicine practitioner who gave him medicine to gain weight. Since then he has no trouble gaining weight or muscle and it probably saved his life. But he does love food so much! It’s one of his passions in life. Especially now that we live in Seoul and there is so much food easily available. We eat healthy in general… but there’s just so much to eat!

NEW KOREAN CONVENIENCE STORE LUNCHBOXES 1

We didn’t have much food in the house today and usually we order groceries online, so we thought it was the perfect time to review some convenience store lunchboxes again. It’s definitely a growing market in Korea. For years there has been the triangle gimbap and instant ramen available in convenience stores but the option of having a proper meal for a cheap price is really appealing to a lot of people.

Tofu 2

Tofu

I actually really like tofu and it’s used so well in Korean cooking as a proper ingredient and not like a meat substitute in western cooking. Korean tofu is great too! But I just don’t get that automatic reaction of drooling at slabs of tofu on food shows that Hugh gets. I was just thinking about how I wish it was cheese. I’d be drooling if it was a big slab of cheese.
