We said goodbye to California
and arrived at our new home in Seoul around midnight the next day. Because it was so dark, we didn’t realize we have this awesome view right our front door until the next morning.
I had heard that apartments in Seoul were incredibly tiny, and I was bracing myself for that, but ours is actually bigger than both of the places we lived back home! We have two bedrooms, an awesome kitchen (with an oven!!), our own washing machine, and a nice little living room which we desperately need to get some furniture for. (Our “furnished” apartment just came with a bed, TV, and table…nowhere to sit).
I wasted no time looking for some good Korean food, and already have a few favorites.
This fried rice with kimchi and egg is perfect for lunch.
I knew I loved japchae (sweet potato noodles with beef and vegetables) before we came (Here is the recipe I use), but it was great to try it here.
Gimbap is rice and various fillings wrapped up in seaweed, but you can also get it with a layer of fried egg, and it’s a perfect snack.
egg roll
I’m excited to get settled into a routine and start cooking some of this stuff!
