Aussie Kids Try Korean Snacks

Aussie Kids Try Korean Snacks!

We have a 6 month sponsorship with Korean supermarket Emart. It’s been a really great sponsorship to have, not only because they have been great to work with, but we genuinely love the products they have. And for foreign food, both locally made and imported, they have proven themselves to be way ahead of the competition.

We knew we’d be in Australia for over a month so that presented a problem. How can we make our monthly Emart video when we are in another country? We came up with the idea of taking some snacks from Emart and getting Australians to try them. Hardly a new concept, but people still enjoy these types of videos. We weren’t sure who we would get to try but it worked out that one of my friend’s kids were keen to try. That’s how we got Sophie, Luke and Tyler to help us with the video.

They were very good at trying some things that even adults can be hesitant to try. All the brands were Emart brands and we picked things that were normal in Korea, but maybe more unusual to Australians.

A big thank you to Sophie, Luke and Tyler!

zucchini and carrot slice

쥬키니 슬라이스에 다른 것들도 추가 할 수 있어요. 베이컨이나 햄등을 썰어서 추가 할 수 있고, 당근 대신 브로콜리, 고구마, 호박, 고추, 토마토, 버섯, 옥수수 등 다양한 야채를 추가 할 수 있어요. 또한 쌀이나 참치도 추가 할 수 있어요. 쥬키니 슬라이스는 야채를 잘안먹는 아이들에게 더 많은 야채를 먹게 할수있는 좋은 방법입니다. 따뜻하거나 차갑게도 먹을 수 있어요. 아이들과 피크닉을 가실때 간편하면서 건강하게 먹을수 있어서 좋아요. 만약에 양이 너무 많으면, 냉동 시켜 놨다가 나중에 먹어도 맛있어요. 그리고 호주에서는 아이들뿐만 아니라 어른들도 좋아 하는 음식이라 홈파티 같은곳에 가면 자주 볼수 있어요. 건강에도 좋고 맛도 좋은 ‘쥬키니 슬라이스’ 아이들 이유식이나 홈파티때 한번 만들어 보는건 어떨까요?

Mac & Cheese VS Dried Squid

In this video we talk about different perceptions of food depending whether we are coming from a western or Korean mindset and we try a new Korean product called ‘CleaningTime’. We test whether it can eliminate bad breath from Mac and Cheese and dried squid.

The vegemite question

Luckily there is no such thing as vegemite kimchi…

Both Korea and Australia have a strong tasting food that is part of their national pride. Hopefully our baby will enjoy both. While I like kimchi, Hugh has given up on pretending that he likes vegemite.

Most comments on comics are on Facebook or Instagram these days, so head over there to see the conversation.

Nepalese Spicy Noodle Challenge

Nepalese Spicy Noodle Challenge!

All sorts of spicy food challenges have been popular in Korea in recent years. Seriously, why do people do this to themselves? Well, here is a new one.

Thukpa is a noodle soup originally from Tibet and the Northern part of Nepal. The Nepalese version is spicier as it has chili powder and masala in it. The restaurant ‘Yeti’ in Seoul is somewhere that Hugh hangs out a lot and this is kind of a secret menu item but now they have decided to make it a challenge. For those brave enough to try it. No exaggerated reactions here, it really is that spicy!

This was right after Hugh had done his big transformation so he ate this after only eating vegetables, chicken breast and sweet potatoes for a few weeks. I’m surprised he didn’t burn a hole in his stomach. Poor Joel has already ruined his stomach from the challenges Josh and Ollie from the Korean Englishman channel have made him do. Alex was the one that did the best on this challenge. Even Gambhir, the owner, bailed before Alex did!

We are curious to see if anyone can win this challenge as it’s not only a lot to eat, but it’s just so spicy. Everyone attempts the Korean spicy noodles challenge but this is a whole other level. Let us know if you try it!

Date in Hongdae and Cheat day

Even while Hugh was on his strict diet we tried to still go out on dates. This was filmed during the last month of his diet. We headed to The Beastro in Hongdae for their amazing lunch menu. Sometimes on cheat days Hugh would go all out and eat anything he wanted, but this was the last month of his transformation so it was extra strict. He still managed to be healthy on his cheat day.

Unfortunately right after uploading this video we found out The Beastro will be closing down in Hongdae. Their Instagram said to keep an eye out for future projects but at this point we don’t know if they will open something similar somewhere else. There is only one week left to eat this delicious food!

Hongdae has been changing for years and unfortunately not for the better. Lots of big businesses moved in and we heard they are tourist zoning it. So all the charm and individuality is rapidly disappearing. That’s why Hapjeong and Mangwon areas are becoming more popular and where great restaurants are popping up.

Watch me eat – Mukbangs

Watching me eat – personal mukbang?

Hugh is on quite a strict diet at the moment so I’ve been very conscious of not eating in front of him. In Australia, if I’m on a diet I don’t want to see other people eat nice food. However, he wants me to always eat in front of him! Not only him, but Yoojin his trainer who is also on this diet wants to watch me. They make me sit down on the sofa and they sit on the floor and watch every single mouthful. It’s a bit unnerving. They want me to make noise and tell them how delicious it is. Hugh also watches so many food programs at the moment. For me I couldn’t handle it if I was on a diet like that, but for him there is something satisfying about seeing others eat delicious food. It helps him with his diet somehow.

We’ve talked about why Koreans love mukbangs in this video. There are some historical and cultural reasons why mukbangs are so popular online and why Korean food programs are filmed in a certain way. I still feel bad eating in front of Hugh, especially when I’m eating something like creamy pasta and he only had chicken breast and vegetables, but he insists it’s okay. I didn’t finish all my pasta last night and he found the bowl and came into my office and demanded I finish it. I would have thrown up if I had one more bite unfortunately so I refused. I saw him eyeing the half of a scone that I left after breakfast this morning too. Silently and sometimes not so silently, judging me. He wants to see me eating so much food right now so he can feel the satisfaction somehow.

At least this diet is only for 1 month and then it’s back to the normal healthy, but not extreme diet. It’s just for getting his special profile photos done in celebration of his weight loss and transformation.
