Among feed, lodge, and clothe, food culture has especially long history and can be a standard to divide ethnic group, region, or nation.
Korean food culture include rice and fermented food like soy sauce, soybean paste, and red pepper paste. Chunjang, which is a kind of fermented soybean product , is also one of the fermented food originated from China. The difference between Korean's chunjang and China's one is that the former include caramel.
Koreans usually steam or boil food ingredients. On the other hand, the Chinese fry the ingredients in oil. That's why they use various vegetables including bean sprouts and coriander to reduce the grease.
If you get off at Daerim Station (subway line number two) and take exit 4, you can find lots of restaurants run by Korean-Chinese. The most popular menu in this area is the food in Yanji City or Qingda.
Byeol Mi Won, located on second floor in Guro 14th Street, has four big tables in the hall and few more in the room. (Byeol Mi means "delicacy of the season" and Won means "a house")
They have various food and the menu includes each photograph of the food, which makes customers decide dishes easily.
I ordered Sizzling Rice Soup. It had lots of seafood like squid, clam, lotus root, and short arm octopus with sweet and thick sauce.
The other one is sweet and sour pork with eggplant and bell pepper. Thanks to eggplant, this is good for health and not that sweet unlike original sweet and sour pork. Pork was really soft and chewy.
However, it is still oily. This is why Chinese people like drinking kaoliang wine with their food. The owner as chef were chatting with customers about the food.
They offered complimentary food; steamed hog liver with soy bean sauce. Two dishes are enough for three people and each one is around 15000 won.
Location : Guro jungangro 14th street 11-4, Guro-gu, Seoul. Tel. : 82-2-851-1001.
